Fasting is going just fine. My training sessions are pretty steady. I eat a small meal for iftar (breaking fast) then take half a serving of protein shake. Rest a bit and do whatever needs to be done. Then I start weight lifting. Not too shabby indeed.
But that's not what I wanna write about. I've no problems with appetite for iftar, but sahur (very early, pre-dawn breakfast circa 5am) is a whole different thing altogether. Try waking up that early and then forcing yourself to shove food down your throat.
Not appealing. But it is a necessary evil. At least for me it is. I can barely survive fasting without having sahur. My body would be in catabolic overdrive. Not good.
For now, I'm just taking my protein shake for sahur. Maybe make a tuna sandwich. But that's all I can stomach. I don't have a big appetite so early in the morning. Plus, I'm not a morning person. Which makes it worse.
For those who are observing the fasting month, or have experimented with fasting (like me blog-o-buddy Adeline)... what do you take for sahur?
