Fasting

Eric-Fitness Together Newtonville & Auburndale

The mainstream nutrition advice for a while has been, "Eat a healthy breakfast upon rising".  Although this is great advice for someone who tends to binge eat later in the day, it can be hindering your fat loss goals!

My advice to my clients is to take advantage of your "fasted" state upon waking.  The bodies primary source of fuel in the morning is fat.  Taking in a breakfast with carbohydrates blunts the fat loss.

I am not recommending that you do not eat at all in the morning, but waiting a few hours takes advantage of fat burning.  Try going for a short walk to intensify the effects.

Give this a try and good luck with your body composition goals!
