Fasted cardio, testosterone boosters, and a green tea detox diet are all things that exist and are supposed to help in fat loss.
Well, if all those things worked, why would performance enhancing drugs (steroids) exist then? If all I had to do was skip breakfast and run on the treadmill for a bit to lose some weight, why do calorie restriction diets work?
Next to green smoothies and eating açai berries by the handful, fasted cardio is one of those new fads that are going around (never mind those elastic waistbands that shrink your stomach).
Now to set the precedent, fasted cardio does have some benefits so it’s not all complete bullshit. It’s still a good form of exercise, and you’re doing cardio so you’re already better than 90% of the population.
Here’s the story: the idea is that fasted cardio burns more fat than if you had a meal or weren’t in a fasted state.
