Normally I workout between 19:00 - 21:00, eat around 70% of my calories post-workout, and fast through the following breakfast till 13:00. Non-workout days I also fast through breakfast.
For the last two months I have upped the workload (and mobility), gained muscle, and expected levels of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).
Been pondering protein synthesis and DOMS and whether or not it would actually be better to eat breakfast the mornings after my heavy workouts rather than fasting through?
Maybe I should drink fermented milk!
@mashdot Could a pint of fermented milk alleviate DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)? http://j.mp/1bMwi4y

I found the easiest way to avoid DOMS was to workout every day. You can cycle intensity if you are worried about "overtraining". I never felt better than when I started skipping breakfast. Just coffee and a heaping spoon of coconut oil. Maybe a grapefruit mid-morning, but not always. And then eat my face off after that. I let my body be my guide as far as breaks from working out, or quantity of food. If I didn't feel like eating as much, I wouldn't. If I felt tired, I would dial back the intensity. Just my 2 cents.

I'm avoiding DOMS by drinking BCAA's during the workout and then immediately following the work out take high amounts of l-glutamine. I don't have to, but I often find a protein shake with 200 mg of magnesium is additionally supportive. I'm a little sore the next day but nothing that isn't manageable or more than a passing annoyance.
I tend to work out at night, eat large right after, and then not eat again until 11:00 - 13:00.
