    Thanks Ben for open forum. Ben, a year after you start heavily promoting ‘fasted’ workouts you decide to give a warning ? I find this disgusting. I believe you have been favoring fasted workouts so you could sell MAP amino acids. Taking a brand new endurance athlete under your wing and then tell them to ‘fast’ their workouts is irresponsible. Use a supplement instead of food ? The high risk of muscle cannibalism, particularly in women, is frightening.
    Frankly, I am disgusted and would like to see an end to this.
