Study Finds – Burn 20% More Fat By Working Out Before Breakfast

Working out before breakfastA recent study published online in the British Journal of Nutrition has found that by working out in the morning before breakfast it can lead to more dramatic results. The study participants discovered they lost 20% more body fat if they did not eat before their workout.
Researchers from the University of Northumbria in Newcastle didn’t use a large study group. As well, it did not include any females; however, the study results were consistent with all  the 12 physically-fit males participating. Some didn’t eat when they woke up, while others ate a normal breakfast 90-minutes before they started their workout. At 10 am, every morning, the group ran on a treadmill.
Following the run, each was given a drink of chocolate milk to help them recover, followed-up by a pasta lunch. The participants were then  told to eat until they were full. Researchers noted that the 12-male participants ate about the same amount of food. The ones who did not eat breakfast, did not eat more to compensate for fasting.
According to researchers, those that went without breakfast burned more fat, because they were burning-up existing fat. One of the two lead researchers, Javier Gonzalez, said during a press release, “In order to lose body fat we need to use more fat than we consume.” Gonzalez also said told reporters that exercise will increase the amount of energy we burn up, and a larger portion of the energy will come from existing fat, provided that the type of exercise is done following an overnight fast.
