TXSnowman's Journal, 27 December 2013

Read a great study examining the differences between training in the fasted state (ie first thing in the morning before breakfast) and in the fed state.


They studied 20 healthy 23 yr old males over a six week period of controlled diet and exercise with the only variable being that half exercised while in a fasted state and half in a normal fed state. The results showed that those in a fasted state burned fat at a significantly higher rate than those that were not fasting. The results also showed that exercising in the fasted state prevented a drop in blood glucose levels during exercise as compared to the fed state. Finally, training in a fasted state showed an increase in oxidative capacity which is likely to increase aerobic capability and endurance performance over time.

Great study. Backs up exactly what I found with my own experience based on Keld's 16/8 strategy. In fact, I'm going to jump on the treadmill shortly!
