- Having breakfast after exercise has an effect on weight loss and a significant improvement in overall health.
- The group that exercised before breakfast increased their ability to respond to insulin, which is remarkable.
- Considerable, given the group who exercised after breakfast, they did not lose the same weight and did not get the same fitness.
Researchers point out that
This effect may be due to low insulin levels in the morning when people abstain from food during the night.
Their insulin levels are low
Which means that they can use more fat as fuel, but doing sports after a meal means that the body consumes what It was introduced to him as fuel.
Dr Gareth Wallis, the co-author of the study, said:
