RE: Burning fat vs burning muscle
I'm going on a limb here...but doing your workout in the morning probably burns little muscle compared to the amount of fat your burning...
I read that working out in the morning burns 300% more fat than working out in the afternoon. I say this without any regard whatsoever to muscle retention. From what I've read (mind you this is from several sources) as long as you're not working out for more than an hour, your only burning if at all, a minimal amount of muscle.
By ALL MEANS, if anyone has proof what I'm saying is incorrect, please post it. None of us gain from misinformation.
I try to stick to working out in the morning...and if I do miss my morning workout, I try to have a protein shake/cottage cheese snack about 3 hours before I workout in the afternoon. From what I've read, this burns minimal muscle....
