Is fasted cardio a myth? I've read it is, but you should also have a meal before cardio? Anyone have any input?

works because your insulin levels are low due to fasting




dnp also keeps your insulin levels very low (hence elevated fasted blood glucose)

Fasted cardio flattens me out big time but it works!

Really hard HIIT cardio with food in you will work just as good.

HIIT flattens you because you're actually utilizing carbs to perform glycolitic work.

Fasted cardio just makes life easier. Wake up, knock it out start your day.

Shoot 2IU humalog keep that BG low fast for an additional 2 hours after cardio if you can to enhance FFA.

This.

Insulin quiet = maximum lipolysis. Insulin higher = blunted lipolysis.

Meatheads chugging tons of insulinogenic BCAA/EAA (leucine has a response to damn near glucose), spiking insulin right before "fasted cardio" = hilarious. You won't eat up muscle that easy. This is marketing bullshit.

I think doing cardio fasted is fine. It's not catabolic if your daily macros are in check (hitting your protein). But I think being fasted is sometimes overstated in terms of importance. What you eat all day still trumps whether or not not you did fasted cardio or not. Your EPOC and calorie deficit for the whole day matters more than that fasted cardio window.

Fat loss is very simple. Get in a calorie deficit. Eat less carbs to keep insulin levels lower continuously. Doing it with diet versus tons of your cardio its not only easier but will break down less tissue.

AAS and adequate protien intake during this time preserve lean muscle mass.

Will fasted cardio enhance fat loss? Perhaps, but it's not that significant as everyone will lead you to believe. Daily caloric expenditure is still king.

That being said, sometimes I wake up and force myself to do some HIIT cardio to get it over with and feel energized to start the day. It's not magic to do cardio when fasted though.

Most of the genetically mediocre we have to do the both things, cardio and diet, and then ECY and DNP.:eek:

It definitely works. I sometimes take some whey prior too, and it doesn't seem to affect the fat loss.

So what exactly is "fasted"??

Some say when your BG drops back down to where it is when you wake up.

Others say you have to have not consumed anything for 4-5 hrs.

If you have a meal at 3pm , train at 5pm then do cardio at 6:30 after only consumed water since 3pm would that be considered fasted cardio??

Never really considered your hypothetical. Good point

I'd consider that pretty much fasted, ya. Your post meal insulin response will have long since gone back to baseline range.
