Movement and fasting are core components of a complete health and well-being package. Gentle to moderate exercise (such as walking, cycling and swimming) during the fasting window can help burn more fat and increase the effect of autophagy (cell cleaning). Plus, for some people, fasted cardio is shown to suppress appetite – helping you start the day feeling satiated!
When it comes to the more intensive endurance sport or strengthening, it’s better to be done during your eating window. That’s because fueling your body well is also essential for muscle repair and recovery, promoting those results you’ve been looking for.
Keep in mind that everyone is different. Ultimately it comes down to listening to your body and discovering what works best for you.
