Work more fat loss, on an empty stomach?

You’ve already heard it: “breakfast to eat.” Should you eat in the morning? And what happens if your goal is weight loss? How does breakfast your ability to burn fat in the gym?

The fitness world is full of fitness myths. Some of these seem useful and can on a lack of understanding of the human body and metabolism while others are downright ridiculous. This article will consider such a myth, whether one should eat training before tomorrow.

The myth: Work first thing in the morning on an empty stomach will maximize fat burning, as muscle glycogen (stored carbohydrates) is low.

First checks the basis for this approach. Eight to twelve hours can choose between a dinner or an evening snack to the wake up to. While this is going on, your body burns more calories to deliver even fuel, but you take no energy in the form of calories. If you wake up, your body is in a “fasting metabolic condition”. In other words, it is a power-saving mode (slow metabolism) occurred and body fat reserves used as a primary energy source due to the decreased muscle and liver glycogen.

The breakfast is (break fast), as you may know, a compound word When you start eating for the day, your body comes from its fast State and increases your metabolism. The myth States that is low since glycogen, preferred energy source for muscles, the body its fat reserves will be use to a greater degree. So far, the myth seems to make sense.

There are a few other myths that relate to this; Take a look at this first because these myths is often used to strengthen the argument for the big myth that this article is:

The low intensity exercise uses more fat than high-intensity training. In terms of the percentage of calories, which will… burn, Yes, that’s true. However, the total calories burned per minute is low. In sleep mode, they are the largest percentage of the calories from fat burning. Once you select the tempo, CHO starts (carbohydrate) make a larger contribution. With this knowledge is foot lead to more fat loss than stairs, assigned for the same time? No. At higher intensities while the proportion of fat used is lower which will burn total calories and daily fat burning later. Higher intensity exercise is for many hours after the session associated with a higher calorie consumption and fat burning. This is called exercise post oxygen consumption (EPOC).

Food eaten in the evening is as fat in the body land. If this were the case, then if you nothing all day but ate an Apple before going to bed, it would turn to fat and weight gain would you. There is no enzyme in the body that is time-sensitive and forcing calories eaten according to 19 than fat stored. As long as your total caloric intake was lower than the amount of calories you burn, in the middle of the night wake up and a meal, go back to the sleep and have still have weight to lose. As long as you keep a calorie deficit, it reduces fat stores and to lose weight.

Let’s get back to the original theme of calories burned with exercise to maximize, to increase weight loss. Performing high intensity heart cardiovascular exercise is the most important contribution to the calorie burn. You can burn up to twice as many calories (and twice as much fat) higher intensity aerobic exercise as a low-intensity cardio exercise. Plus you have the advantage of the EPOC (which burn higher calories after intense exercise).

There is an old saying that “Burns fat in a carbohydrate flame”. In other words, the body needs glucose (from carbohydrates) to the prime fat burning processes. With less than adequate glucose available, run the machines to keep, exercise intensity (and thus calories burnt) can not be maximized. A clear example of this is meets an endurance athletes “the wall”. Their performance suffers, or not listening because she ran from fat reserves, but from lack of glucose to keep burning fat efficiently.

So, here it is: If you don’t eat before you reduce tension/exercise, to maximize the ability of your body to burn fat. And not just because your training was not as good as it would be if you had more energy, but because you have fewer calories to burn throughout the day at the end. Why eat your biggest meal before d
