I’ve been reading a lot about people running on an empty stomach.
Yeah, I don’t get it. What exactly are you accomplishing by running first thing in the morning before you eat breakfast? Is it because it’s painful that it’s supposed to be better for you? Is that really the difference between losing weight and not losing?
I make it a point to eat around an hour before I go to the gym. Running or lifting, I don’t care, I eat. If I didn’t I would be able to put in my best effort.
When I read about people doing this they seem proud that they did it. Like they did something extra. I don’t know. It sounds dangerous. I get sick if I don’t eat first thing. That’s the reason I’ll never even try it. I really wouldn’t care if it was proven to help you lose weight. I’d rather not puke on my run, thank you.
I just wish I could understand what people think is so beneficial about it.
