|Secrets to Maximize Fat Loss Using Cardio|
|Written by Jeff Behar, MS, MBA|
Muscle Mag Fitness - To maximize fat burning perform two cardio sessions, one in the morning and when after you train in the afternoon. This technique works so well because of a cool effect that occurs after you do cardio. After a good cardio session your Metabolic Rate is higher and you actually will burn extra calories for several hours later. The calories that you will burn literally while doing nothing, will most probably exceed the calories initially burned during the exercise.
Doing cardio in the am before eating carbs is beneficial because your body's glycogen levels will be lower in the morning (assuming you last ate at dinner time and have essentially fasted for 10-12 hour fast).
Doing cardio without eating causes your body to mobilize more fat because of the unavailability of glycogen. Blood glucose levels are also lower after an overnight fast so you will burn more fat which will be used for energy.
After fasting your insulin levels are the lowest. When you consume a meal, especially one with carbohydrates your body releases insulin, which interferes with the mobilization of body fat. Because there is less insulin present before eating after a 10-12 hour fast more body fat is burned when cardio is done in the morning. Note: this is also why many "fat burning" or carbohydrate blocking products contains several ingredients, which have shown to reduce or regulate blood insulin levels.
Eating immediately before cardio also inhibits fat burning because you
will first have to burn off what you ate first before your body will
burn stored body.
