I TRIED FASTED CARDIO AND LOST 3LBS AND FAT ON MY LOWER STOMACH
I have been struggling with the belly fat around my lower stomach (below my belly button) for a while now. That seems to be the last place I lose my fat and to be honest I have never seen that part of my stomach look anything like I would like it to look.
I have been struggling with this for a while now and decided to try fasted cardio.
What is fasted cardio?
Fasted cardio is doing cardio right when you wake up before you eat anything. Since your body has technically been fasting while you were asleep, your body uses burns fat instead of its preferred energy source – carbs – as energy. There are many articles out there and research that shows that fasted cardio does work but you also have to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Meaning if you incorporate fasted cardio and still eat like crap, then you probably won’t see a difference.
Essentially fasted cardio may burn more calories from fat. But it can also end up burning protein which you know is important for building and repairing muscle. This is why I suggest drinking BCAA’s while doing fasted cardio.
Since fat is the main fuel source while in a fasted state, fat from hard to reach areas like lower stomach, thighs and hips can slim down since this is where a lot of fat gets stored, especially in women.
Did fasted cardio work for me?
I think it did! It’s only been a week and I lost 3 lbs. and noticeably lost fat on my lower stomach. Since my fitness goals are to be really lean and continue to lose body fat, I will continue doing fasted cardio and see where it goes. All in all, I am already excited with the results.
