    Bingo
    Intermediate fasting, or fasting before a workout (lifting or HIIT) is not going to hurt or help fat loss. When you eat is not as important as what you eat and how much. The only advantage of eating before or after a workout is more readily usable energy, and faster recovery.

    And ALWAYS eat before heavy lifting. Any steel worker or other hard laborer knows that. icon_wink.gif

    It depends on the workout. if you're doing any kind of endurance training, a good dinner the night before and a good breakfast 90 - 120 minutes before training is a must. there are few things more horrible than running out of groceries 2/3 into a long workout, hitting the wall, and either giving up or dragging yourself on in. That can take several days to recover from, with resultant loss of training.

    it's not really what it sounds like... the article goes on to say that the fat burned is fat found in muscle, not body fat and this doesn't actually lower overall body fat. furthermore, the article also says it's risky to work out with no food in you.

    Huge pet peeve of researchers: When your work is this:

    And it gets published on "science news" web sites as:

    "To get rid of fat, don’t eat before workout!!!"

    There's likely some merit to exercises with lower blood sugar, and even ketosis, but, it's not really a good habit to get into because of the way it compromises lean muscle mass.

    I've often done morning HIIT with only about 20 grams of carbs before hand. I think (I'm not a researcher.) that it does have some beneficial effect but only to a degree. If you don't eat enough, however, you'll lose muscle and get a slower metabolism. When I'm doing all that HIIT I bring my overall calories UP (to as much as 5800) and get real busy.

    There's no doubt it DOES increase your insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance.

    I find my workouts are far better if I have a little something in my stomach before a workout. Aside from trying to do some low intensity cardio, I think its a bad habit to do. Let's face it, there is a room of reporters trying to skew fitness studies to become a blurb on your yahoo splash page. I think you will burn more, pump more, if you have more fuel to push yourself.

    I rub my patented Snake Oil into my left shin before I workout. It is entirely due to this that I have the body I do. I can sell you some at $50 a bottle. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Would say even if you are the type of person who does cardio as soon as you get up in the morning, its usually recommended to have something in your stomach.

    Weight loss isn't that complicated, eat less and do more...

    If I don't eat carbs at lunch (three hours before my workout) I have ZERO energy to do anything at the gym. I have reduced my body fat by eating more of what I want at lunch time and doing some sort of short (15- 20 mins) but intense cardio everyday.

    My Snake Oil contains no snakes and is suitable for vegetarians. It has been scientifically tested by Delivis.

    And when you do eat, portion it out into small meals, to be eaten after your morning workout and throughout day until about 2 hours before bedtime.

    Your body is a machine that with small portions eaten 6 times a day, can process the food and keep your hot bod lean, mean, and efficient.

    I've been doing this for over two decades, and it really works.
