This is a very effective program developed over the 20+ years I have been in practice. Once you attain your goal weight, continuing with this cycle is easy to modify to accommodate whatever life throws at you. Interested? Click for how to get started.
At meal time, we ingest a large number of calories but where do they go?
We store carbohydrates in the liver and in the muscles as something called glycogen, and we store fat as something called triglycerides, which get packed into our fat cells (and to a certain extent, within the muscle cells themselves) where they wait patently until the body needs them for fuel.
These two sources of fuel—fat and sugar (or, more technically, fatty acids and glucose)—are the primary sources of energy (calories) our bodies run on.
Your body can store about 69 gazillion calories of fat in your fat ssues (triglycerides), but only about 1800- 2000 calories of sugar (glycogen). That’s because sugar should only be used sparingly—in emergencies. Sugar is the perfect fuel if you need a quick burst of energy lasting under 30 seconds, because the body can use that sugar instantly while it takes up to 20 minutes for the body to mobilize a significant amount of fat.
Sugar is great in a pinch—but if you want sustained energy, you’re much better off using fat as your primary fuel. Nature knew what she was doing when she gave you an endless supply of fat.
When you burn fat, it doesn’t produce as many of the chemicals that cause inflammation and oxidative damage, which are at the core of virtually every degenerative disease we know of—indeed, they’re at the core of aging itself.
Our bodies don’t run on fat for one simple reason: because we’ve trained them not to.
