I'm sure this question has probably been asked before but I thought I might re-present it in case it hasn't.
Q. Are there Ideal types of foods when breaking a fast the next day and conversely are there foods that you shouldn't have directly after a fast.
Reason I ask is that I generally do Mon and Thurs as a 5:2 and Fridays are my day off. On Saturday's I skip breakfast and play Golf and generally don't have anything until about 11.00 am. I figure I have probably fasted on the Friday night for 16 hours as I generally finish eating around 7pm. Now this is where the essence of the question arises, The first thing I have after golf ...a beer and packet of chips , probably 600-800 calories. Even though I'm not overdoing it calorie wise , and I have just burnt about 1200 calories playing golf, is the high fat in the chips coupled with a sudden insulin rise drinking the beer just undoing all the previous weeks fasts and exercise? Does the body work in reverse when its in fat burning mode and take the calories straight to the fat cells without being turned onto energy? Even with the beers I generally don't overeat on the Saturday or the Sunday and I'm back into a fast on the Monday.
Cheers in advance
