Study
The researchers got 25 students, who were physically active for at least two hours a week, to run on a treadmill for half an hour on 2 different occasions in the morning.

One time the test subjects received a light breakfast with 138 kilocalories in the form of carbohydrates half an hour before they started running, the other time the test subjects exercised in a fasted state.

Whether the test subjects had breakfast before they started running, or exercised in a fasted taste, they rated the session equally pleasantly [Affective valence]. Breakfast also had no influence on the extent to which the test subjects felt aroused by the session.

Conclusion
“Our results suggest that for individuals performing exercise in accordance with current guidelines, fed state will not impact variables known to influence exercise adherence such as affective valence or enjoyment of activity,” write the researchers.

“However, these results should not be generalized for extended fasting, extended exercise, or high-intensity exercise.”
