What about cortisol levels? It is said cardio first thing in the morning makes cortisol levels out of whack. High cortisol will hinder gains incredibly look up side effects

^^^^^^^Same thing I've read! I've also read that taking certain GH and TEST producing supplements pre workout in a fasted state reverses this spike in cortisol. I've actually tested this multiple times and I believe it works. I do find myself much hungrier and very tired after the gym when using hormone inducing supplements prewrkt fasted.It's easy, just lift heavy!

Wouldn't lifting fasted = cardio fasted?

the army trains every morning before the sun rises.
what more else do i have to say.
"train" as opposed to being tortured.
i read somewhere training early in the morning keeps testosterone:cortisol ratio high.
they did have a post-workout recovery shake. that helps alot i guess.

Who cares about what you think happens to cortisol levels? So cortisol goes up some (when its already at its daily peak) for the half hour or hour of fasted cardio, then you eat and cortisol goes down. If more fat is lost, more fat is lost. That's what this study showed, not more muscle lost. Too many guys get caught up in little number pieces like serum levels of ___ which sound meaningful. But they aren't if they don't actually have effect on body composition. That's why a lot of supplements turn out to be moderately useless, because they are based on research that shows blood markers for ___ to go up or down, but almost never on studies that show actual body composition changes.

Great article!! A few questions.. Should you eat right after fasted cardio? Or should you wait a little? Also does anyone think taking 10 grams of bcaas while on fasted cardio could effect the fat loss negatively?

Also how long did these people do cardio? 20-30 min? An hr?

Also how long was this cardio performed? 20-30 min? An hr?? This stuff matters

You are right that it is at its highest in the morning. But cardio first thing makes higher cortisol levels throughout the day. Higher than they would be under normal circumstances. And I do care about my cortisol levels because the higher they are the less I will see my body react from my training in the way that I would like it.

^good question as I too take bcaa before workouts with n.o. on a fasted state...

The real facts are that the group that ate breakfast before working out had an extra meal during the day that the fasted group didn't have. The fasted group did not eat breakfast after the workout, they skipped it all together. Another bunk study that doesn't show any real useful data. Of course eating less will burn more fat...that's not news. I need to start a site where I explain the real results of studies(not the paid-for, or misguided conclusions) so this type of thing stops happening...

I honestly thought this was pretty much common sense...
less meals consumed + exercise = More fat loss
I learned nothing new here
