- Athletes generally undertaken intermittent fasting via reducing their daily caloric intake for certain period of time. However, such practice may impair high intensity exercise performance mainly due to disturbances in fuel availability. Meanwhile, if such practice was continuous, body will make changes to meet the exercise demand. Hence, this study aimed to examine changes in lipid constituents throughout 10 days (D) of intermittent fasting (IFA) and normal diet (CON) while performing a series of intense exercise. Twenty male collegiate athletes (aged 20.3 ± 2.7 years; 2.8 ± 0.2 L.min-1 VO2peak) were randomly allocated to either IFA group which consumed 1590 ± 79 kcal.day-1 (40% total caloric omission), or CON group with 2672 ± 139 kcal.day-1 (normal intake). Participants performed high-intensity exercise at 90% VO2peak cycling to exhaustion, 2 h after breakfast in the morning on D0, D2, D4, D6, D8, and D10 before blood samples were collected. The high intensity exercise time-to-exhaustion performance declined over the 10 days, however, showed a trend of recovery at the end of the experimental period. Compared to D0, plasma triglycerides decreased on D6-10 (P<0.01) whilst total cholesterol (TC) increased in IFA on D2-10 (P=0.01). LDL increased in IFA on D2-10 (P=0.01) in contrast to reductions in CON on D8-10 (P=0.01), whilst HDL increased in IFA on D6-10 (P=0.01). Loss in body weight was consistent with the changes in lipid constituents. In conclusion, the practice of intermittent fasting must exceed 10 days to ensure that high-intensity performance does not deteriorate although changes in HDL is evidence in the later phase of the intervention period.
