This is good advice. I usually eat a banana or an orange and the sugar craving goes away. I tried using other non-wholesome substitutes like flavored protein bars, and noticed that I would still crave sugar.If you want sugar, have fruit.
I also find that just simply walking helps distract the craving just by nature of getting out.Go find a private area and bust out some really intense exercise drills like burpees/jumping jacks or shadow boxing for about 60 seconds. After the drill you will find your cravings and feeling of bingeing will subside.
I find that when I fast, and do more demanding workouts like DFW etc I end up eating way more at the end of the day and defeat the natural caloric restriction fasting imposes. On days I fast, I am usually just doing S&S.Also, when you combine fasting and intense exercise, you double the impact and in turn the stress.
When you're fasting what types of workouts do you do?
