Fasting before exercise and the effect on endurance, aerobic, and strength training | Rhonda Patrick

An abundance of scientific data clearly demonstrates that eating a carbohydrate-rich meal prior to endurance exercise training – more than 60 minutes' duration – markedly improves performance in humans. Eating prior to participating in shorter training periods, however, blunts the beneficial effects associated with training in the fasted state, especially those associated with enhanced mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation. In this clip, Dr. Rhonda Patrick discusses the circumstances under which eating prior to exercise is beneficial versus detrimental.

This clip was taken from the Zero Fasting interview with Mike Maser found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTVBhz1kuO0.
