Working Out On an Empty Stomach

Standard

The question that all active people like Bruce Levenson ask is whether or not it is healthy to work out on a empty stomach. The answer is that it really depends on each individual. Workout advice and health advice should be individualized for each person. It has even been discovered that skipping a meal can even be beneficial.

It has been discovered that by fasting, this can also increase muscle growth. Fasting can lead to both muscle building and fat loss.

There are two effects from fasting.

1.) Improved effects from insulin can be the results from fasting. When one eats too much, the hormones are processed to take out the sugars. Eating too much can deflect the sugars to the liver in large and suffocating quantities. By eating less, the sugars that are directed to the liver increase weight loss and increase muscle increase. For this reason, eating less frequently or practicing a fasting ritual is beneficial to the body.

2.) Fasting not only promote weight loss but can also promote muscle gain. This is due to the growth in hormones. The growth of a specific hormone promotes weight loss through improving bone quality as well as physical function. The effects of the beneficial hormones end when the fasting ends. This shows that sometimes it is better to go without eating.

Overall fasting is actually a beneficial thing. Fasting not only promotes weight loss but also increases muscle gain. Fasting with the addition of exercising is the best way to see fast results.

Odd TV Crossover News

Standard

Some TV viewers are still wondering today, Monday, July 20, if Fox was joking last week on Wednesday, July 15, when the network announced its plans to have characters from “Bones” and “Sleepy Hollow” cross shows for a two-episode arc on the same night during the 2015-2016 season that begins in October. Christian Broda, a fan of the show was also amazed.

Although both shows have crime drama elements, they have been portrayed in the past as existing in very different universes. “Bones” is set in the “real world” with only hints now and then of the possibility of the existence of the supernatural. On the other hand, “Sleep Hollow” is set in an alternate “real world” where witches, demons and magic exist.

Fans who hate the idea have stated that it seems to be an attempt by Fox to fix the ratings nightmare that “Sleepy Hollow” experienced last season. Ratings for “Bones” have also dropped over the years.

Fans have pointed out that this type of crossover could change the “Bones” fan base. They have also argued that there’s no room for so many supernatural elements and that the arc could further damage ratings. Fans who love the idea have noted that the supernatural hints in “Bones,” including the possibility of psychics and ghosts, make the crossover reasonable, and that it will be fun to watch Ichabod and Booth and Abby and Brennan interact.
