A recent study in the U.K. found that if you workout prior to eating breakfast you can burn more fat.
Researchers spent six weeks following 30 men who were overweight or obese. All of them eating the same foods and doing the same workouts.
The only difference was some of them worked out before breakfast while others worked out after eating.
The study showed that the ones who exercised first burned TWICE as much fat.
Exercising on an empty stomach forces your body to burn stored fat instead of using calories from food.
Both groups actually lost the same amount of weight during the study. It’s not clear if that would hold true for a longer period of time or not.
The guys who worked out before breakfast saw more benefits to their OVERALL health.
The biggest one was it increased their ability to respond to insulin, which cut their risk for heart disease and diabetes.
