Don't Eat?:Skip the Snack if you Wanna Work-Out

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - A study in the Journal of the American College of Sports Medicine simply says "skip the snack" if you want the six pack!

But 19 Action News spoke to a dietician said you should think twice before you head to the gym hungry.

European researchers claim even just a light snak could weigh you down before you head to the gym. They also found cyclists who trained without eating beforehand burned significantly more fat.

Other exercise physiologists warn when you don't eat a little before a workout it's mostly fat within the muscles that's lost and won't make a big difference for those trying to lost weight.
