I've heard before that working out in the morning, before eating anything would increase fat loss because the body would burn the fat instead of any recently consumed calories for energy. Is there any truth to this? I feel like my workout would be less effective without the extra energy from a meal. Maybe an empty stomach would promote extra fat burning, but wouldn't help as much with muscle/strength increase?
Working out on an empty stomach
i wouldn't want to lift on an empty stomach. Fasted cardio is fine though
seconded, i used to train fasted, but in reality you just get tired quicker an thus lift less weight
Ngl back in high school my female friend caught me jerking off to her sunbathing older sister’s ass while we were chilling in her pool and looked at me exactly like this. Sorry the image just reminded me
The amount you lose extra is so miniscule that it's useless for everyone except for guys trying to go from like 7% to 6% for a competition. Besides your body will just bias carb and glycogen burning later in the day to compensate for being thrown out of homeostasis in that way.
What did she say?
Well I obviously realized the look meant she wanted me to stop, we were literally in her pool tbf. That’s teen hormones for you. But afterwards when we had showered and were chilling in her room she swiped her sisters phone while her sister was showering and airdropped me her nudes and told me to go nuts and just don’t get any of my “schlong stuff” on her bed. She was such an awesome friend. I think she got kind of turned on watching me jerk off, she used to tell me I could crank it out whenever I came over to visit
nice larp faggot
Did you sleep with either the sister or the friend?
You just kind of feel dizzy and like you're floating about the place, afterwards your appetite spikes and I end up eating like a pig
No because I was a stupid pussy back then. Only action I got was getting head from the school slut behind the bleachers in gym in exchange for buying her booze for parties. Not counting blowjobs I was a virgin until college
You missed the part where you were having a threesome with the two sisters and then the mom walks in and it turns into a foursome
We never had sex she used to just watch me jerk off and then we would do homework and watch tv. She ended up dating one of my other friends but they broke up pretty quickly because she didn’t want to put out
Damn, you never even asked her to help you jerk off when she was watching you?
insane larping going on here
Well, you wouldn't usually fast while trying to gain mass or bulk anyway, would you? You fast while trying to lose fat and during this phase the best you can hope for your weights at least not going down. You'll be lifting for maintenance.
I've worked out in a fasted state enough to tell you that your weights usually don't go down after an initial drop once you start fasting.
And in addition, it is a very effective way to get rid of fat when you don't have all that much to shed anymore.
Don't fast when you want to grow, but absolutely try if you want to get leaner and you're not afraid to shrink a tiny bit.
There is no point on eating right before. You only get the energy from the food you just ate 4h after. Before that you are just making the digestion, removing blood from your muscles and focusing on your digestive system.
If you have to work out in the morning make sure to have a very good last meal before sleeping, that's your pre-workout, you'll have a lot of energy if you eat right.
In the morning just take a protein scoop with water as it doesnt give an insulin spike and go to the gym, eat after.
A banana half an hour before going works well.
thats what i do usually with a raw egg and coffee
>You only get the energy from the food you just ate 4h
>average man sleeps for 8h
your point being?
When you're fasted you have less glycogen in your muscles, wich means you're going to be tired quicker
And you said the weight doesnt go down after the initial drop, which means it did go down.
I think you're retarded but i hope you'll learn something
fasted exercising is so retarded. Okay maybe you burn a bit more fat during your workout, what happens to the food you eat later? Instead of being used for exercise that food now gets turned in to fat.
The advantages of eating before is that you have more energy to burn more calories/lift heavier
