Become a more efficient runner by eating less before a run:

The easiest way to run in the fasted state is to go in the morning before the hunger pangs set in, drinking only a bit of water. After an overnight fast, your glycogen stores will be low, forcing your body to burn fat. By doing this sporadically, your body becomes better at utilizing fat as a source of fuel. What’s more, a study out of New Zealand that compared a group of cyclists’ glycogen stores in the fasted state versus the carbohydrate-loaded state discovered that workouts done in the fasted state helped increase their glycogen storage capacity. So not only do fasted runs potentially help you burn fat for longer, thereby pushing back the point at which you switch to burning carbs, they also increase your carb stores for when that point is reached.
