3 Benefits Of Exercise While Fasting

It is no secret that exercise has great effects on your health; but what is not clear is whether one should do so on an empty stomach or on a full one. In this article, you will read some of the benefits of working out on an empty stomach and by the time you’re done, you will be able to draw your own conclusions.

1. Burns fat faster

Exercise Food

A study conducted on a group of nineteen men divided into two groups–one which exercised while fasting and the other that exercised while fed–found out that body weight and fat loss was more in the group that exercised hunger, but faster than it was in the other group that exercised while fed.

This is because the Sympathetic Nervous System which controls fat loss is ignited by exercise and lack of food. You can get more out of your exercise if you combine these two techniques.

2. Better Insulin sensitivity

Insulin is a hormone released into the body to move sugar from the bloodstream to the liver, muscles and fat cells to be stored, and to better the absorption of nutrients from the food you eat. But if insulin production is high (which occurs as a result of you eating more), the body becomes immune to its effects and makes it difficult to lose fat in addition to a higher risk of cancer and heart disease.
But when you fast, less insulin is made, which makes it easier for the body to get rid of fats, increasing blood flow to muscles and maybe even neutralizing the impact of an unhealthy diet.

3. Muscle Gain

Growth hormone (GH) is responsible for making new muscle tissues, burning fat, and making better, stronger bones amongst others, and is especially released when one exercises or fasts. One study found that fasting for 24 hours increases GH production by two thousand percent!

Testosterone is another hormone, a sex hormone, that affects muscle mass and fats, and is abundantly released when you exercise while fasting.
