Can't be bothered to hit the gym after work? Maybe you should try going before breakfast, because a new study suggests exercising before eating the most important meal of the day aids countering a high-calorie diet.
Researchers in Belgium had 28 healthy, young men consume a diet of 50% fat (which was 30% more calories than they had been previously eating). The men were divided into three groups: One group didn't exercise at all; the second group performed four, strenuous hour-long workout sessions after breakfast per week; and the third group performed exactly the same exercise routine as the second, but did so before they ate breakfast.
Six weeks later, they found that the non-exercisers gained an average of six pounds.

That's a pretty good reason to rise and exercise before you dig in to that box of Cheerios!
