“Eating Before a Workout Helps You Burn Fat”
This is a FACT. Much like a car needs gas to run, your body needs its fuel in order to be energized and motivated for activity, especially when it comes to fitness. If you work out on an empty stomach, you’ll feel tired faster and you’ll exercise with lower intensity. That means fewer calories burned, less muscle built and less of a metabolism boost. As a rule of thumb, you should aim to eat 30 to 60 minutes before an exercise depending on what your stomach can handle to make the most of your workout.
