View Full Version : Fat for breakfast

Do you think that having something like a tbsp of olive oil in the morning before cardio would help fat burning.

What about on non workout days?

Would it cause more of an insulin spike after a workout?

Thanks for comments!:redface:

I don't think it would have much of an effect on lipolysis any more than taking it at another time of the day. Something like acetyl-L-carnitine is a much better catalyst to boost lipolysis…

Does fat even cause insulin spikes?

I don't think fat would cause a spike, to say. If were talking about a SPIKE, I would assume only carbs could do that. I could be way wrong, I am not really versed to well in this area.

Chicken Daddy would be the man to ask about this one.

Fat doesn't cause any insulin response itself.

Just bile and lipases.
