I started going through a cutting phase. I've never been on a cutting phase before. I went from 190 to 240 pounds over the last 2 years. I'm 24 years old. I have my diet in order and am going to start using HOT-ROX. I have a problem though. I'm terrified of losing a large amount of muscle that I have gained. The fat that I have gained is completely isolated to my stomach love handle region. It's going very well but I just want to make sure my progress continues.
Is working out first thing in the morning before a meal the best time to burn fat? I would think that one would lose a great deal of muscle and strength because you fast all night and are running on empty first thing in the morning....Unless I consumed only a Grow! shake without carbs or fat. This way I would be stopping muscle breakdown in the morning with protein but not giving my body any carbs or fat to use during the cardio first thing in the morning. What do you guys suggest for the best way and time to burn fat? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
