EMPTY STOMACH WORKOUT - IS IT REALLY EFFECTIVE

Uzma Hanif


Exercising on an empty stomach all known as fasted cardio is the solution for major fat loss goals. This is the most ideal time when the body uses the stored fat deposits for energy rather than food thus resulting in higher levels of fat loss. 

The speciality of fasted cardio is that it is a very powerful tool used by people whose major goal is maximum fat loss in a short span of time.

BENEFITS OF FASTED CARDIO

1) Effectively burns stored fat - People opt for fasted cardio because working out before eating anything forces the metabolism to work fast and adapt the body accordingly. However the type and intensity of the exercise performed plays a major role for the body to fuel the workout.

2) Works well with Intermittent Fasting- Intermittent 
fasting or eating only during a short window of time throughout the day means that the morning workout should occur only during the fasting period. While there are many different forms of intermittent fasting and research has been done on all of its benefits. Fasted cardio easily fits into all of these plans.

3) Can be done immediately upon waking up - There is no better benefit of fasted cardio than the fact that you eliminate the time it takes to consider fueling and your workout. Normally a person wants to wait about 30 minutes after eating to start the workout which means that if your goal is a 6 am workout, you would have to finish your breakfast before 5.30 am, with fasted cardio there is no need to wake up earlier to make a pre workout meal or a snack. You can just go for workout right away and there is no need to worry for nutrition.
