Fasted exercise fallacy

You may have asked yourself ‘will I burn more fat doing fasted cardio?’

The simple answer is no, it has no super body fat burning power.  Don’t be an idiot! No exercise protocol will result in fat burning!

The benefits that come from fasted cardio are that it is a time saving protocol as you don’t have to wait for your breakfast to digest before you start.

The other benefit from a weight loss perspective is the obvious that it is ‘fasted’ so you may have skipped a meal in order to perform it. This would mean a lower intake of calories over the day.

This lower intake of calories and you achieving a calorie deficit is what is causing the weight loss. Not the magical fasted cardio!
