A jar of muscle weighs more than a jar of fat.
There seems to be a lot of conflicting arguements on whether or not it's good to run before breakfast or not to help weight loss.
It seems every article says something different. Does anyone know if there have been any conclusive studies into this?
Don't quote me on this* but I seem to remember a programme where a dietician explained why, technically, running in the morning does have a marginal benefit in terms of calorie burn because of the body clock and metabolic patterns through the day, but the practical conclusion was that the effect is so minimal, the best strategy is: run at the time of day that suits you best, because you're more likely to actually bother.
*Maybe there's some scientific literature on this but I CNBA looking for it. Where's Sarah?
That's not fasting, that's eating one meal a day, many people live like tha all the time, only their one meal will be in the evening.
Why not just work out how many calories you're saving on that day and reduce your weekly total like wise, then you wont be so hungry for one day.
The Kenyan's run on an empty stomach first thing in the morning. It must be ok!!
