However, research has demonstrated that fasted cardio does not increase fat burning over a 24-hour period. While your muscles adapt to using more fat when you exercise, you don’t actually lose more. However, research has demonstrated that fasted cardio does not increase fat burning over a 24-hour period. While your muscles adapt to using more fat when you exercise, you don’t actually lose more fat overall on the days that you exercise versus days that you don’t. Some research does actually show that when you do cardio fasted in the morning, you burn up to 20 percent more fat.
A recent study from the UK published in the “British Journal of Nutrition” found that when subjects were fasted during morning cardio they burned 20 percent more fat than when they had a meal beforehand. Research has shown that there is no difference in body-fat lossbetween fasted and fed cardio. Fasted cardio may burn more fat during the time of the actual workoutbut less the rest of the day, whereas non-fasted cardio may burn less fat during the workout but more throughout the day. In the end, the difference in fat burned is insignificant.
While fasted cardio likely won’t help you burn more fat, it doesn’t mean you have to eat before the gym either. This one boils down to personal preference and your fitness goals. If you enjoy working out on an empty stomach and don’t feel like your workouts suffer, keep at it. As a matter of fact, it turns out that yes, you do see an increase in fat oxidation (or more fat burning) during fasted cardio exercise. 1 One study from North Umbria University found that those who “exercised in a fasted state burned almost 20% more fat than those who had consumed breakfast before their workout.” 2 But not so fast.
The Truth about Fasted Cardio and Fat Loss. Does fasted cardio burn more fat? The simple answer is not really.
Recent research (*by Horowitz and colleagues) has shown that there was no different in the amount of fat burned regardless of whether the subjects had eaten or. However, research has demonstrated that fasted cardio does not increase fat burning over a 24-hour period. While your muscles adapt to using more fat when you exercise, you don’t actually lose more fat overall on the days that you exercise compared to days that you don’t. The basic theory with fasted cardio being superior for fat loss is the fact that research has shown that: When exercising in a fasted state your body preferentially burns more fat for energy since your insulin and glycogen levels are low during this period.
Fasted cardio is simply just exercising in the morning after fasting overnight (i.e. not eating breakfast before you workout). The idea behind it is that if you exercise on an empty stomach, you will accelerate the fat burning process. When you are in a fasted state, your body has low levels of both glycogen and insulin.
