Does Fasted Cardio Really Burn More Fat?

Thursday, November 10th, 2016

That won’t just thwart how much weight you can bench press or how toned you look, it will also slow your metabolism (i.e. how many calories you burn per day) and make losing weight more difficult in the long run.

In an effort to prevent starvation (or very low caloric intake), your body adapts to the number of calories you have given it; hence, if you are frequently making drastic cuts to your calorie intake, your body will eventually adjust by burning fewer calories. Also, if your blood sugar levels are low, you will feel weak and less efficient to accomplish the workout with the desired intensity.

A well balanced meal is key pre-workout to get optimal energy, strength and desired results.
