Thinking about starting to work out on an empty stomach?
Working out on an empty stomach has been long debated. There are theories whether or not this is good for you, so we are here to provide you with some good information. Most people have a hard time working out on an empty stomach because of lack of energy. During the night when you sleep, you have already been fasting throughout the whole night, which might make it difficult to work out on an empty stomach.
Working out on an empty stomach might be easier if you have had a big dinner, or just plenty of meals the previous day, where you still have a lot of glycogen in your muscles. This will enable you to still have energy, and also get a good pump. If you are looking to strictly lose fat, working out on an empty stomach might be the answer for you.
Fasting periodically and working out on an empty stomach will have several benefits. There is nothing in your system for your body to burn, other then fat. So working out first thing in the morning, will get you and should get you the maximum fat loss results. Of course, there is also muscle that could be lost by working out on an empty stomach, but that is not something you need to be really concerned with. You won’t be walking into the gym jacked, and leave a skeleton if you work out on an empty stomach, that is a fact.
In order to get energy, drinking coffee or a pre-workout drink can give you the boost that you need. Pre-workouts aren’t the healthiest things on earth, but at the end of the day, it’s pretty much the same as drinking a bunch of coffee.
This is just advice, do whatever the hell you want!
