The theory behind exercising with an empty stomach is that when you squeeze in a morning cardio session before breakfast, your body burns fat faster.

See, what happens is that glycogen, a type of carbohydrate that our bodies store, “runs out” overnight. When you wake up and hit the gym first thing in the morning, because your body is low on carbs, the idea is that the body will turn to fats next to gain energy.

So what does the science say the benefits to skipping breakfast before working out?

1. Burn fat faster.
2. Improve performance.
3. Time-restricted eating can help you lose weight.
4. You can improve your body’s response to insulin.
5. You might be inspired to workout more.
