Eat afterwards

“In conclusion, our present findings clearly demonstrate that consistent exercise training in the fasted state markedly stimulates the contribution of IMCL – intramyocellular lipid – to energy provision during fasting endurance exercise. Fasting training also increases muscular oxidative capacity more than a similar intensity and duration of exercise with ample exogenous carbohydrate supply. In addition, training in the fasted state prevents drop of blood glucose concentration during fasting exercise. Our present findings therefore provide evidence to indicate that regular fasted training is a useful strategy to stimulate physiological adaptations in muscle that may eventually contribute to improve endurance exercise performance.”
