I developed this Beta Red Fasting Fuel recipe by pushing my own limits. I’d gone too long between meals while engaging with athletes and wanted to get out for a lunch ride without bonking or eating a full meal. I've also utilized it when wanting to hit an 0-dark thirty training session before the family awakes while trying to get around spiking blood sugar immediately before training.
I can recall hearing about fasting almost as far back as I can remember, but until recently I was skeptical there was a place for it amongst endurance athletes. You see, I was always that type who would wake up ravenous. If I didn't eat within 30 minutes of getting out of bed my thoughts would be solely focussed on finding food as quickly as possible. I would also experience a similar scenario if I went more than a few hours during the day since my previous meal. For someone who loves food, this was great from the standpoint that I'd get to eat again, but also made me feel like a slave to eating. "Hangry" was an all-to-common state for me.
