A Case for Working Out in a Fasted State

A Case for Working Out in a Fasted State

Grab a cup of coffee and let's talk. Let's talk about something that causes a lot of controversy in the world of athletics and sports nutrition. Recently, I was in a group of dietitians and they brought up, "what do you eat in the morning before your workout?"  So many chimed in with yogurt and fruit, an egg and some milk, etc. I quickly thought about it and came up with one answer, nothing. I don't really eat anything before my workout in the morning and I do not think that is a bad thing. Mind you, I wake up at 4:40/4:45 and my workouts typically run between 5:00 am to 7:00 am.
