Many people find it difficult eating before an early morning workout or even just first thing in the morning. However, whether you are working out first thing in the morning or not, breakfast is essential for fat loss and to get optimal body composition.
A recent study tested the degree that the metabolism was elevated after exercise with a group of individuals that didn’t eat breakfast and a group that did. They tested how many calories were burned, 12 and 24 hours after the aerobic workout. The results showed that the amount the metabolism was elevated after the workout was much greater both 12 and 24 hours after for the group that did eat breakfast.
As well, the group that ate breakfast resulted in much more fat being used for energy rather than carbohydrates. To sum it up, pre-workout breakfast has a long-term value for fat loss. By eating breakfast, more fat will be burnt during the work, and the metabolism will be elevated to a much greater degree up to 24 hours post workout. - If you exercise before work in the morning and currently don’t eat anything, start with something small and slowly increase your portion size - Plan ahead. Prepare your breakfast the night before to make it easier in the morning to get ready and get out the door. - Coffee and green tea with breakfast is suggested to elevate fat burning during your workout by as much as 15%. - Taking fish oil with breakfast will help improve energy use, help with muscle gains and insulin sensitivity.
What to eat?
- The optimal breakfast to have is a high protein meal. This goes for the individuals that are working out first thing in the morning and those that are not. A high protein breakfast will provide your body with dopamine and acetylcholine, which give you drive and focus. - If you are really pressed for time and cant allow your food to digest for 45 minutes to an hour before your workout some options include an apple with nut butter (almond, cashew, peanut etc) or Greek yogurt and berries.
