Skipping breakfast `before workouts can make you fitter`

London: Breakfast is often said to be
the most important meal of the day. But, a new study says that
skipping it before exercise can make you fitter and stronger.

Many athletes believe that they should have a high-
carbohydrate meal to provide energy for a morning?s training.
But the latest study appears to show the opposite is true.

Researchers in New Zealand have found that by not
eating, the body is put under stress quicker -- and the longer
it can endure the stress the more beneficial the exercise, the
`Daily Express` reported.

For the study, the researchers conducted two tests
in which two groups of cyclists were sent on 75-minute early
morning bike rides for four weeks.

One group had a high-carbohydrate breakfast, while the
other did without. The riders who set out on an empty stomach
performed the better, the findings revealed.
