So, here’s my question, o great ones.
If I’m trying to burn fat, not add bulk, and I lift first thing in the morning 3x a week, WITHOUT eating, then go running, and then eat, what happens?
What’s your opinion?
I’m following the BFFM method. I do cardio 30 minutes 6-7 days a week, lift 3x. My diet is pretty solid.
I am trying to burn fat as well, and I used to do the same thing as you, work out and do cardio without eating, but I quickly switched because it does use up your hard earned muscle for energy.
30 minutes before I hit the gym, I have a protein shake, so I at least have something in me. Even if it is something small, you want to make sure you put something in you before you workout, so you can have some energy. I feel this has helped me greatly, while still losing fat and having enough strength for weight training and cardio afterwards, and hopefully it helps you too.
