Working Out Before Breakfast Burns More FatBy Steve Casimiro on January 30th, 2013
If you can get your ass out the door before a slug of yogurt and granola, a new study suggests you’ll cook off 20 percent more body fat by exercising on an empty stomach. Researchers from Northumbria University in the U.K. studied two sets of subjects: one that ate breakfast before hitting a treadmill at 10 a.m. and another that hadn’t eaten since the night before. Both sets drank chocolate milkshake recovery drinks after the workouts. Either way, morning exercisers lost weight, but those who worked out in a fasted state burned almost 20 percent more fat compared to those who had eaten breakfast beforehand. The morning workout results are bolstered by a study from BYU last year that also suggested that exercising first thing in the day suppressed hunger and increased weight loss. Via CTV.
