This is most applicable for a Phase 3 client.

  • Explored various post workout nutrition strategies

Athletes who are trying to maintain a high level of strength and body composition.

    • Wrestlers
    • MMA Fighters
    • Rock Climbers


Start with a 12-hour fast.
  • Eating from 8am - 8pm daily

Control Group: 
Feed at 8am, 1pm, 8pm

Test Group: 
Feed at 1pm, 4pm, 8pm

This is a higher level change that done appropriately for the right person can have beneficial outcomes. It should be emphasized that this could be counterproductive if the fundamentals haven't been mastered. Studies support benefits and trade-off's from longevity, health bio-markers and performance.
