If you want to know how to use fasted cardio to lose fat as quickly as possible, then you want to checkout this infographic.
“Doing Cardio on an Empty Stomach Burns More Fat”
That’s the headline splashed across an edition of a popular women’s fitness magazine.
Right next to it sits a popular men’s bodybuilding magazine with the following headline:
“Fat Loss Myth Busted: Cardio on Empty Stomach”
I flipped through both articles and, ironically, both had it wrong.
Doing cardio on an empty stomach doesn’t necessarily help you lose fat faster.
Doing fasted cardio can help you lose fat—and “stubborn” fat in particular—faster, though.
(And it works especially well when combined with several other fat loss strategies, which we’ll talk more about in this infographic.)
This sword cuts both ways, though.
Do your fasted cardio wrong and you won’t lose fat faster. You’ll just lose muscle instead, which is a good way to wind up skinny fat.
We’re going to break it all down in this infographic and learn the simple science of fasted cardio, including…
- What fasted cardio actually is (and isn’t).
- How it can help you lose fat faster.
- Why it can cause muscle loss.
- How to maximize its benefits (fat burning) and minimize its drawbacks (catabolism).
- What types of fasted cardio are best.
- And more.
By the end, you’ll know how to use fasted cardio to speed up fat loss without sacrificing muscle.
Let’s get started.
