The best time is just after you get up. When you sleep your body uses excess carbohydrates on various respiratory and metabolic functions and as you haven’t had any major meals for several hours, there’s very little carbs floating around in your system that can be used as fuel. So your body turns to its fat stores. A few tips:
- Your work outs will be much harder on a morning as breaking down fat as a fuel is a much more longer process for your body, but much more beneficial
- Your body will also turn to breaking down protein (ie muscle) along with the fat stores, so have some eggs before you train that way you body will break down the protein in your blood stream as appose to your muscles.
