Fasted training is training on an empty stomach to improve your body’s ability to use your fat as fuel. It can be done first thing in the morning before breakfast when your stomach is naturally empty, or after an intentional fast. It is easiest to approach it first thing in the morning because you do not have to go without a meal. Many people who are following a Paleo diet plan have already heard about fasted training, and have proven the results themselves. But is it worth all the hype? Is the worth trying?
According to a recent study published in The Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition, researchers gave some participants a shake before a workout, and others had the shake after, there were no real differences in weight loss over the course of the program. However there is more to it than that, the study did not go into detail about where exactly the restricted calories were coming from on the diet, nor did it give adequate information about the shakes. Anyone on a Paleo diet already knows that the quality of your calories is much more important than the quantity.
A training session first thing in the morning when you naturally have an empty stomach will achieve the beneficial results of Fasted Training best. This is because you do not have the unhealthy emotional ups and downs of skipping meals when you could be enjoying beneficial calories, and starting the day with a boost in your heart rate will increase your chances of burning more calories throughout the day. Working out in the morning has the additional perk of becoming a healthy habit (some even say addictive), that will improve your over all health. Try fasted training, by either putting off your meal until after your workout in the evening, or starting your day with a training session for a few weeks and see if you do not see an increase in weight loss. Feel free to tell us about your experience when it is done.
Eat Well as Well
Fasted training is not going to have great results if you are fasting from a diet of processed foods, heavy starches, sugars, and carbs. Remember that what you put in, you get in return. Make sure your post-workout meal is healthy, do not give in to any misguided ideas about rewarding yourself with fast food or a sugary treat after a fasted workout. Instead give your body the real reward of a healthy Paleo meal that will increase your energy instead of wearing you down.
