Fat loss - when the heck should I eat?
It's a common misconception that we need to be eating a million times a day in order to increase our metabolism and burn more fat.
First of all, let's talk about who is looking to burn more fat? If you are looking to lose weight or even just "tone up"…you're looking to decrease the excess fat you have on your body.
Watch my latest live video (or just listen - you don't need to see my face) as I get into how to tap into your fat stores to use them up as energy. We're discussing meal timing (when and how often) and we nerd out on what insulin is and the role it plays in fat storage and fat loss. It's a pretty unknown concept to most. Definitely worth the 35 minutes if fat loss is on your agenda!
Here's a quick summary:
1) Insulin is a fat-storage hormone that helps us carry sugar into our cells to use as energy. Whatever we don't use gets stored as fat to use at a later time.
2) If insulin remains elevated, our bodies remain in fat storage mode and do not switch over to fat burning mode.
3) Lowering insulin is what allows us to switch over to fat burning mode. We can lower our insulin by focusing on nutrition upgrades and timing our meals properly (hint: eating every 2 hours will not allow your insulin levels to come down for you to enter fat-burning mode).
Watch or listen to the video for lots more details and for the 3 tips I share at the end so you can get going on your fat loss goals right away!!
In good health,
