Burn more calories with pre-workout meal

null The study found women who ate a breakfast rich in carbohydrates with a low-glycemic index burned 50 percent more calories during their morning workout. Researchers believe that a meal rich in carbs and low in sugar may increase the body's ability to burn fat.

Researchers said the key is to avoid high-glycemic carbohydrates known to make blood sugar rise, such as cornflakes and white bread. Researchers recommend a light breakfast including items like yogurt, skimmed milk or whole grains to get you going.

The study was conducted at the /*University of Nottingham*/ and published in the May issue of /*The Journal of Nutrition*/.
