The Truth About Fasted Cardio

I’ve never been an early morning cardio person so this particular topic wasn’t applicable to me or my training.

However, I do train clients bright and early at 5:45 am and many of them have asked me if they should eat or not before working out.

Great question.

I had to do some research so that I could provide you the truth about fasted cardio.

You see, there is a lot of bro science that fills the fitness industry airwaves and I wanted to see if this particular topic held any weight.

There was A LOT of data on both sides but I feel confident to tell you that you won’t experience any greater fat loss if you don’t eat before your cardio.

With that said, if you don’t like eating early in the morning that’s totally fine. You don’t have to.

On the contrary, if you feel that you need some food before you head to the gym, that’s ok as well. You won’t struggle to lose weight any more than if you went fasted.

So the simple answer, do what you feel comfortable doing. If you’re goal is to lose fat, just track your macros, hit your protein number, kick ass in the gym, and be patient. I promise you’ll get there.

Get the low down here with this short video explaining the truth about fasted cardio.
