Training before the first meal is more effective than after breakfast, because it not only burns more calories, but increases reduction of fat in the blood that build up on the walls of the arteries, according to latest research from the UK.Although the benefits that we get from physical activity have been long known, many people are wondering whether it is better to exercise on an empty stomach or after a meal.
Dr Jason Gill of the University of Glasgow, believes that workout before breakfast makes your body to rely on the existing fat reserves to get energy. Ten volunteers made three surveys. During each visit to the laboratory volunteers received breakfast. In the first experiment the volunteers after breakfast just resting. The second had to go for a quick walk before breakfast, and in the third walked after breakfast.
Those who walked before breakfast spent even 33 percent more calories than those who exercised after breakfast. Tests show that had a greater drop in blood fats. Although volunteers just walked, scientists say that people can safely exercise and heavier training, because the body has enough reserves for 90 to 120 minutes of exercise.
