I know this post probably looks boring, BUT ITS WORTH THE READ, TRUST ME...
I am always on the lookout for ways to boost my calorie burn throughout the day. I recently came across an article that is so interesting.
Basically, the study divided men into 3 groups:
1. Those who did not exercise for 6 weeks and ate high carb/high fat diet
2. Those who did exercise before breakfast and and ate high carb/ high fat diet (after workout)
3. Those who did exercise after breakfast and ate high carb/ high fat diet (before workout)
All men were consuming about 30% more calories than usual.
The results? Everyone ate the same amount of calories, the only difference was when you worked out (either not at all, before breakfast, or after breakfast).
The group that ate after they worked out, did not gain any weight DESPITE THE INCREASE IN CALORIES. Researchers believed exercising helped to combat the weight gain!
What does this mean for all of us lovely ladies? All we have to do is simply exercise before breakfast to prevent holiday weight gain... My alarm clock is set already!
Stay tuned, my next post will be about my workout routine that I want to introduce you all too!
When do you prefer to exercise?
Do you find working out before breakfast helps you maintain your weight better?
