Can I fast and workout at the same time?
From Steve Edwards:
I think that fasting occasionally is great. The only problems that you will encounter is lack of blood sugar, which will make it tougher for you to keep the intensity high during workouts. This can be a reasonable trade-off because you are burning stored body fat because you have no glycogen stores to use. As your body fat gets lower fasting becomes more difficult. If it gets too low you may not be able to workout during fast, or at least not workout very hard, which is okay. I would try and plan my fasts around a cardio day or rest day or both. During sculpt days you want to go anaerobic which is very hard without carbohydrate stores and chances are you will bonk.
