Should You Skip Food Before Exercise to Burn More Fat?

Some scientists argue that if you want to get rid of more fat, you should skip pre-workout eating.  Several studies suggest exercising while your body is low on food may be a good way to trim excess fat.

In a recent study, researchers found that cyclists who trained without eating burned significantly more fat.

According to USA Today:

 “Muscles usually get their energy from carbohydrates ... if you haven't eaten before exercising, your body doesn't have many carbohydrates in reserve. That forces it to burn fat instead, scientists say.”
