There aren’t many fitness topics as controversial as this one question: Is it bad to work out on an empty stomach? Here, Greatist dismantles some old myths, once and for all.
It’s a debate that’s raged since the first weight was lifted: Is it better or worse to work out on an empty stomach? Wars have been waged and nations have fallen (okay, that’s a slight exaggeration) during the eternal battle of fed versus fasted exercise, but it’s time for this madness to end. We have the final answer.
Well, not the final answer. Different people work out best under different circumstances, and deciding whether someone should eat before training can be like telling them what time of day to work out or what their diet should look like in general—it depends on what suits the needs of a given individual. But itis time to dismantle some old myths.
