Q: I’m curious. Do you ever wake up not hungry? And if so, do you eat anyway?
It is a question of what you’re going for. I’m trying to bring my body fat down. If you’re an athlete who is in good shape, then I’m guessing your goal isn’t the same, and eating when you’re hungry is probably a much better approach. That said, getting high protein w/in 30 minutes of waking isn’t just about weight loss. It’s also about fueling your muscles.
I’d guess a better approach for you would be to think about protein types to get w/in the first 30 minutes. Use the right kind of protein relative to when your muscles will need it.
