Water Fasting and Weight Lifting

Water Fasting and Weight Lifting


What do you think of water fasting and weight
lifting? Water fasting ensures you won’t get dehydrated,
but fasting will fail after more than a few reps. Fasting allows you to burn fat while water
fasting fuels the workout. Water fasting just means you don’t eat but
do drink water. A lack of food will start to slow your metabolism down, no matter how
much you work out. Working out while staying hydrated lets you
burn calories twice as fast, since you aren’t taking any in. People on starvation rations don’t do much
work because they don’t have the energy. A few hours without food, and you can’t
get a decent workout in. Lifting weights on a fast accelerates weight
loss. Why are you so eager to volunteer for what
is historically seen as torture? Oh, and since you’ll still lose electrolytes in your sweat,
it can make you sick. I heard guys talk about water fasting along
with their morning workout every day. That’s a different matter. They are hitting
the gym every morning before breakfast, but they do eat a full meal. Does that improve their weight loss? Those who worked out before exercising gained
little to no weight, while those who tried to workout after a full breakfast gained several
pounds. That’s evidence in its favor. In that case, they burned off some of the
calories they were about to consume. But it was only a 12 to 16 hour fast at max, not
a days long fast. I’ve heard that alternate day fasting improves
glucose control. Can you combine that with exercise to prevent diabetes? Don’t try to workout after going 24 hours
without food. You risk passing out or worse. So you think water fasting is counter productive. You can’t lose fat or build muscle if you
can’t fuel your workout. And passing out while lifting weights and breaking your neck
is counter-productive to long term fitness goals.
