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.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3253005/

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!
