Does Fasting Workout in the Morning Burn More Fat?

by | Jan 27, 2023 | Weight Loss | 0 comments


Are you trying to lose weight? Are you also a morning person? If so, you’re in luck! A new study proves that exercising before eating breakfast can help with weight loss. In fact, researchers found that women who worked out before having breakfast burned 55% more fat than those who exercised after eating breakfast. So if you’re looking for an easy way to get started on your diet and exercise plan, try working out in the morning before eating anything all day long!

Fasting for eight hours.

For example, fasting for eight hours is more effective than eating breakfast. In fact, it’s been shown to help people lose weight faster than eating lunch or dinner. This means that if you want to start your day with a fasted workout, you can do so without any fear of sabotaging your weight loss efforts!

Your body is going to burn more fat after fasting.

The truth is, your body is going to burn more fat after fasting. This is because when you eat, your body burns carbohydrates first, which are the easiest energy source for your cells to use. When there aren’t enough carbs left in the tank and your body needs more energy, it can turn to fat stores as an alternative source of fuel.

So what does this mean? You’ll actually burn more calories overall if you skip breakfast than if you eat one! And since most people tend to overeat during meals anyway (especially breakfast), eating less at each meal means fewer overall calories consumed throughout the day–and thus less weight gained over time.*

Women who worked out before eating burned more fat.

The results were surprising. Women who worked out before eating burned fatter, but men who worked out first burned more calories overall.

Women who ate first had a higher appetite after exercising than those who fasted. This was especially true for women; their hunger ratings remained high even after they ate breakfast, whereas men’s appetite levels dropped back down after their meal and returned to baseline levels by lunchtime.

Your muscles will use up sugar but won’t get extra sugar from food.

The first thing to understand is that your muscles will use up sugar but won’t get extra sugar from food. When you eat, your body has two ways of replenishing its stores: it can either burn fat or turn the food into sugar. The more quickly you digest a meal (like a steak or chicken breast), the less time there is for digestion before it reaches your bloodstream–and thus the faster those calories are available for energy (and burning).

On the other hand, when you fast and then work out in the morning with no breakfast beforehand, your body doesn’t have any additional fuel coming in from food so it’ll have to start burning some of its own fat stores instead! This means that fasting workouts actually result in more fat loss than regular ones do!

You’ll run out of sugar faster than you will fat.

If you’re fasting, your body will run out of sugar (carbohydrates) faster than it will fat. This is because the body stores carbohydrates in the liver and muscles as glycogen, and when those stores are depleted, it turns to fat for energy. That’s why many diets recommend eating high-glycemic foods like pasta or bread right before bed: they’ll help fill up on glucose before going into a fasted state so that when you wake up feeling hungry again in the morning, you won’t feel as much hunger pangs thanks to those carbs already circulating through your system.

If this sounds familiar and makes sense to you–if indeed our bodies do have an easier time burning off sugars than fats–then why does fasting not work for everyone?

The body has more ways to replenish its stores of sugar than it does for fat.

The body can make sugar from fat, but not vice versa. This is why people who eat a low-fat diet are more likely to lose weight than people who eat a high-fat diet–and also why if you fast (eat nothing) for long enough, you’ll eventually break down all your muscle tissue and start burning that instead of fat (which is why fasting is only recommended for short periods).

Another way that the body converts energy sources is by converting carbohydrates into glucose molecules that get used as fuel by your cells. You already know this happens when you eat carbohydrates like bread or pasta; what’s less well-known is that this process also occurs during digestion so all those carbs in our bodies don’t just sit there doing nothing! It may seem counterintuitive at first glance but when we look closely at how things work together inside us then everything falls into place quite neatly 🙂

Working out before eating seems to help your body burn fat, not just sugar.

Fat is a more efficient fuel than sugar. When you eat food, your body needs to process it before it can be used as energy or stored for later use. One way that this happens is by breaking down carbohydrates into glucose (blood sugar), which then enters cells through a channel called GLUT4 (glucose-transport protein 4). But after that happens, the extra glucose stays inside the cell until it’s needed for energy–and if there’s too much of it around at once–you get diabetes! So what does this mean? Well…

That means we need to exercise BEFORE we eat breakfast so that our bodies can burn off those extra carbs instead of storing them as fat!

Yes, working out on an empty stomach is better for losing weight.

When you exercise after fasting, your body will burn more fat than if you were to exercise before eating. This is because when you eat food, your body uses the energy from the food before burning any excess fat stores–which means that instead of burning fat as fuel or using it as energy (instead of glucose), it will convert that energy into glucose instead and store it as glycogen in the liver and muscles.

Your metabolic rate also increases during fasted exercise which means that even though you’re not consuming any calories during this time period, your body still requires more energy because it has been stimulated by exercise–so again: more calories burned!

It will help you consume fewer calories overall.

When you’re fasting, your body shifts from using glucose to using fat for energy. This is called “ketosis” and it’s great for weight loss. What’s more, there are studies that show that intermittent fasting can help you burn more fat during workouts and after them too!

The key is to do a workout fast (in other words without eating anything). If you eat before working out or right after working out, this will slow down the fat-burning process because it causes insulin levels in your bloodstream to rise–and insulin prevents the breakdown of stored body fat into free fatty acids so they can be used as fuel by muscles during exercise.

You’ll burn more fat.

Fasting workouts are great for burning fat because your body will use up its stored sugar first, and then start burning fat.

If you eat before working out, your body will get energy from both sources: food and muscle glycogen (sugar). But when you fast before working out, your muscles have no choice but to use up their own glycogen stores–and then start using fat as an energy source. This means that after fasting for about two hours or so in the morning (or whenever else you choose), instead of just burning calories from breakfast like usual–you’ll burn more fat!


In summary, working out on an empty stomach is a great way to burn more fat and lose weight. The best time for you to do this is in the morning before eating anything else. This will help your body burn more fat instead of sugar, which means that you’ll lose weight faster than if you were just exercising alone!
