How To Lose Body Fat-And Feel Years Younger
adipose tissue /ˈædɨˌpoʊs/ or body fat or just fat is loose connective tissue composed mostly of adipocytes.
Abdominal fat actually produces inflammatory molecules, and high inflammation levels in your body which can trigger a wide range of systemic diseases linked with metabolic syndrome.
This is why carrying extra weight around your middle is linked to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, strokes, and other chronic diseases. Now what If everything you’ve been told about exercise was wrong. What if almost all fat loss workouts really are a complete waste of time!
After extensive research and years of trial and effort I have finally found what is effective and what is not…
Things that don’t work
Cardio workouts–Long, slow, boring cardio workouts don’t work. Some people eat more when they start a cardio program and calorie burning at rest often decreases. Lastly cardio programs cause you to do less activity over the course of the day.
Jogging-Jogging or Running has become very popular in our society in recent years. There are some potentially serious disadvantages that you should consider before choosing to jog on a regular basis.
The chance of injury is greater than for any of the other aerobic activities. Running traumatizes the body, especially joints in the legs, knees, and back, as well as the kidneys-and more…
Dieting- If there’s one thing history has proven time and again it’s that dieting doesn’t work!
Fat-Free Foods- Replacing fat with sugar to make the food more palatable is a recipe for disaster and sugar-free is no better. If you starve your body for fat it will create it’s own!
Sugar-free products typically contain artificial sweeteners…which are arguably FAR more detrimental to your health than the sugar that was taken out, plus they can actually increase your appetite.
Things that do work
Interval/Density Training–It’s about getting you the most intense metabolic work-out in the least amount of time…not just by moving fast between exercises, but also by manipulating the work/rest periods to get the maximum density burn within a single exercise.
Density leads to biochemical and hormonal changes and these biochemical changes in your body are something you can’t really see, hear, or feel and are what cause you to lose fat and gain lean muscle, along with improving your cardiovascular performance.
Density increases specific enzymes in your muscles (specifically ones like citrate synthase in the mitochondria – energy creation powerhouses – of your muscles) and that increases your fitness and post-exercise calorie burn.
Doing as little as four minutes of intense exercise using a density workout system can be as effective as doing thirty minutes of low-intensity exercise.
Wholesome (Organic) Real Foods- Organic certified grass fed beef, free range chicken, eggs and butter- Starchy carbohydrates like bread, pasta, rice, bagels, cookies, chips and crackers turn to pure sugar upon digestion, so choose your carbs wisely, as in lots of vegetables (raw preferably), and whole grains in moderation.
Note: stay away from any foods saying that they are “all natural”.
So if yours is not doing well, there is no way that you can reach your goal weight and stay there. Probiotics and enzymes are one possible solution that can help with your digestion. (more about this later)
Water- All known forms of life depend on water. Water is vital as an essential part of many metabolic processes within the body.
The human body contains from 55% to 78% water, depending on body size. To function properly, the body requires between one and seven liters of water per day to avoid dehydration, the precise amount depends on the level of activity, temperature, humidity, and other factors.
The reason I add water here to our discussion is that most people do not drink nearly enough water which leads to numerous problems of which we will talk about at length later.
(see future posts where we will delve into my recommendations for best types of water you should be drinking daily)….hint
The purity of spring and mineral water refers to absence of toxins, pollutants, and microbes, not to the absence of naturally occurring minerals.
