You shouldn’t work out on an empty stomach
Manager, Vivafit Abu Dhabi
vivafit.ae Training on an empty stomach, or after a light meal, means that your body is not preoccupied with digesting huge amounts of food, but instead can deliver large amounts of oxygen to your muscles and potentially burn more fat. While reduced glycogen stores may help your body to prioritise or burn more fat, if they are completely depleted, this can potentially be bad for your body and may even use muscle for energy. This is something we do not want, as muscle is what gives you definition, shape and tone. Usually by this stage, you’re also not feeling that great either. So my advice is to eat frequent meals and have a light meal before working out and, most important, listen to your body.
