Exercising when fasted forces the body to rely on using fat as a substrate

It has been hypothesized that exercising when fasted forces the body to rely on using fat as a substrate rather than carbohydrate, thereby reducing body fat to a greater extent than performance of post-prandial exercise. Our results refute the veracity of this hypothesis.


I think “when fasted” is not grammatical, is it?

I agree. It should read either ‘while fasting’ or ‘when you are fasting’. By the way, how often do you use Reddit?
