Fat Burning Greatest After An Overnight Fast

Exercising following an overnight fast will burn more fat than exercising after breakfast, according to Korean researchers. Test subjects reported to the laboratory for a 30-minute treadmill run either fasted or after breakfast. When fasted, blood sugar was lower and free fatty acids, growth hormone and cortisol were higher than when they ate breakfast. Consistently exercising fasted in the morning should result in greater fat burning and fat loss than exercising after breakfast. (Journal of Physical Therapy Science, 27:1929-1932, 2015)
