Exercising On an Empty Stomach: The Surprising Benefits

Exercising On an Empty Stomach: The Surprising Benefits | Nutrition | Scoop.it
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.

Lower Your Triglycerides with Lifestyle

Triglycerides (TGs) are a type of fat in the bloodstream. They are used for energy. When TGs become too high, this biomarker
suggests risk for cardiovascular disease, especially when accompanied by low HDL-cholesterol and high LDL-cholesterol. High
triglycerides are a common problem in the United States. One third of adults have levels above the normal range (< 150 mg/dl).
The good news about TGs is that they are highly responsive to lifestyle modifications. Optimal lifestyle interventions can lower
TGs by 20-50%. We suggest that you look at the following chart and select a change or changes you feel ready to make!
Note: When evaluating TG levels over time, be aware that there is considerable variability in the measurement of TG. Look at
the trend in TG over time (not just one reading) to evaluate the success of your lifestyle changes. Remember, the same positive
lifestyle changes that lower TG, also improve your overall health!
