Running on Empty

 

Explanation – Many folks think that they must wake up first thing in the morning and jump to cardio while their body is in a fat-burning mode with no food in their system. There is some truth to this, but running completely on empty first thing in the morning could be compromising your muscle mass.

Solutions

  • If you do cardio first thing in the morning, avoid all forms of carbs, including slow-digesting fruit, whole grains, and fast-digesting sugars.
  • Don’t compromise on protein. Having 10-20 grams of a fast-digesting whey protein shake before your morning cardio will save your muscle mass and will not compromise fat burning.
  • Boost morning cardio intensity without compromising fat burning by sipping on a sports drink, such as Gatorade, and spitting it out (don’t swallow it).
