Abstract

THIS ARTICLE WILL REVIEW THE EFFICACY OF A COMMON FAT BURNING STRATEGY EMPLOYED BY BODYBUILDERS, ATHLETES, AND FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS BASED ON CURRENT RESEARCH. THIS STRATEGY IS TO PERFORM CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISE EARLY IN THE MORNING ON AN EMPTY STOMACH. THE THEORY GIVEN FOR THIS STRATEGY IS THAT A SHIFT IN ENERGY UTILIZATION AWAY FROM CARBOHYDRATES OCCURS, THEREBY ALLOWING GREATER MOBILIZATION OF STORED FAT FOR FUEL.
