If you can face going for an early morning run before eating breakfast then you could burn more fat. That’s according to this article which suggests those that exercise before breakfast burn 20% more body fat.
Researchers looked at 12 men whom they asked to perform treadmill exercise at 10am either after they had eaten breakfast or had not eaten since the previous evening. The participants were all given a chocolate milkshake drink after the exercise and later in the day were provided with a pasta lunch which they were asked to eat until they were full. Their lunchtime consumption of energy was assessed taking into account the amount of fat and energy burnt during the morning period. Surprisingly those that exercised in the morning did not consume any additional calories to compensate for their earlier activity. Those that had exercised in a fasted state, however, had burnt almost 20% more fat than those that had eaten before working out.
I must admit I have found an early morning run most effective for getting rid of the pounds. I will have to remember this when I come to start losing the baby weight.
