Fasted running

by Ross

Can I train whilst practicing fasted running? Ie I’m going out early morning, and I’m going straight for a run. I’ll eat when I’m home. What should I then eat when I’m home? Healthy fats and protein?

Thanks for the question Ross. MAF training goes hand in hand with training your body to use primarily its fat stores for energy as opposed to using mainly its glycogen stores.
One pf the best ways to train your body to use its fat stores is too get it used to having less carbs (for example, eating a low carb high fat diet) and to teach it to run with fewer carbs.
Have a look at this link as I think it will answer your questions. Phil Maffetone - 5 ways to run fasted
