The concept behind this is to obtain your body into a state of ketosis. In this state of ketosis the body is supposed to be more inclined to make use of fat for power- and research study states it does simply this.

(I understand the debates made to not have fats 2-3 hrs or else of training. While I won’t have fats 2-3 hrs after training as I desire quick absorption and blood flow then, I see no issue with reducing every little thing down previously training so my body has accessibility to a sluggish digesting energy source).
