So what is this new workout hype and does fasted cardio work? Put simply, fasted cardio is any heart rate increasing exercise that is undertaken on an empty stomach. It is most often done in the morning, before breakfast and when your body is in a naturally fasted state. The theory behind this (backed by scientific studies, of course) is that when doing cardio, your body searches for fuel; and when doing so on an empty stomach, your body doesn't just burn the energy from your last meal (as it would if you had recently eaten), but must instead burn fat from your fat stores in order to sustain energy.

So one or maybe more than one of your children has asked to have a pet. Now, if the family has never had experience with pets before, this can feel like a daunting undertaking.

So when it comes to pets, what are the best options to start out with? Well, there are several options.
I found myself listening to the radio today, which is not something I’d normally do. On it, I heard two cover songs, both of which, I presume are currently in the charts. So I thought to myself: ‘Is music going the way of cinema, where everything is just remade for a newer audience?’ Obviously, the level hasn’t got so bad that every other song is a cover version, but it sometimes feels like it might get that way if it isn’t stopped.
