Eat Before You Run To Burn Fat

Eat Before You Run To Burn Fat Many people think that one of the best ways to burn fat is to run, cycle or swim on an empty stomach. A study published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism suggests it might be better to eat something first. Researchers had 8 healthy young men run on a treadmill at 65% of their theoretical maximum heart rate for 36 minutes. Some ran on an empty tank while others had eaten. Although both groups consumed the same amount of food on the day of their workout, the runners who ate breakfast first experienced greater fat utilization up to 24 hours after exercise.

True Strength Moment: This study didn't take into account what might happen if the subjects exercised with intensity or participated in HIIT training, which might increase the fat burning potential of their effort. But if you want to play it safe, mix up a 140 calorie Platinum Hydrowhey shake before your morning run. With 8.8 grams of BCAAs to protect muscles against excessive breakdown, and just a gram each of sugar and fat, there isn't much to get in the way of your weight loss efforts. The new Cookies & Cream Overdrive flavor will kick start your taste buds too!
