Losing weight is a challenge for all of us.
Imagine you have the choice to eat either a packet of sweets that is stored in the cupboard or you can cook some meat which is currently stored in the freezer.
Which one is easily and immediately available to eat now?
The answer is obviously the packet of sweets, right?
The meat still has to be defrosted and cooked before you can eat it.
When it comes to your body, it’s the same story.
Sugar is the first available food source that is used in our bodies for energy. As long as there is sugar available, it is NOT going to access the fat.
This means that as long as we keep ingesting foods that contain high amounts of sugar, (including carbohydrates such as white bread, white rice, and white pasta and processed foods) we will struggle to get rid of our unwanted fat and attain sustainable weight loss.
Why? Because the excess fat in our body is only used for energy after the body has used up all its sugar stores first.
When we eat food, our body releases the hormone insulin. The sugar is stored in the liver as glycogen and this is used up before any fat stores are accessed.
Sweets and desserts do not trigger our satiety. We all know that we can always find space for that pudding or ice cream after a big meal.
So how do we maximize fat burning?
We can maximize fat burning by eliminating as much sugar from our meals as possible.
Potatoes, peas, beans and many other vegetables are both high and low carbohydrates that form part of our meal planning because they trigger our body’s satiety.
However excessive consumption of carbohydrates can also prevent the release of our fat stores in our bodies.
So remember to eat ALL Natural foods as much as you can, stop the sugar intake, limit the carbohydrates and add more green vegetables.
Your body will be grateful and you will start to release that unwanted fat with so much less effort. ❤️
