Nutrition timing is a very small piece of the puzzle. Energy balance is FAR AND AWAY the biggest factor in gaining or cutting weight. Do whatever it takes to hit your goal macros and do not sweat the minor details.


If you eat before a workout versus fasting, that doesn't mean you're gaining muscle versus losing fat - the body does not operate with an off/on switch like that.

Yes, there are small optimizations on when you eat and how much, but that's best left to experts. You could gain muscle on one meal a day and you could lose fat on 10 meals a day. It's all about energy balance over a period of time.
