Hello guys, im always training in the morning. I go to the gym after i woke up.
I have read that the body has a high cortisol state in the morning. So the Body burns fat, but also breaks down protein.
I often trained with an empty stomach. If i took a shake bevore training it was with protein and with some glucose.
I personally thought the combination of glucose and protein would be the best, but today i read an article that made me doubt. The article explained that if the insulin level increases, the body won´t burn fat, and also that your muscle cells don´t get the glucose, caused by the high cortisol you had before. So it would be better to drink the protein with some fat.
Does this really help? Wouldn´t it take to much time to digest it?
So basically i want to know what combination would be best before my morning workout if i would want to loose fat, and whether the combination is the same when i would want to bulk or not.
Guys I am sorry if my grammar isn´t that good.
I hope you can help me, thank you.
