When should I exercise when fasting?
There is nothing magical about exercising on an empty stomach, and you get most if not all benefits if you schedule your workouts to your feeding window or shortly after. If you’re doing longer fasts than 24 hours, consider sticking to low- to moderate-intensity cardio workouts.
Does exercising while fasting burn more fat?
Research suggests that during periods of fasting, glycogen stores are empty. This means the body starts to burn fat for energy during exercise, which may help weight loss. One study found that exercising in a fasted state also led to a higher fat loss than in people exercising after a meal.
Is cardio while fasting good?
The bottom line. Cardio, fasted or not, is great for your body. And while nutrition is key for weight loss, cardio can help you reach a weight loss goal.
