Increasing the number of mitochondria can dramatically enhance your fitness abilities and your body’s ability to torch fat.

Training in the fasted state improves glucose tolerance during fat-rich diet.

Training in the fasted state improves glucose tolerance during fat-rich diet.

High-fat diet increased intramyocellular lipid but not diacylglycerol and ceramide contents, either in the absence or presence of training. This study for the first time shows that fasted training is more potent than fed training to facilitate adaptations in muscle and to improve whole-body glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity during hyper-caloric fat-rich diet.
