Of course you know that to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you’re taking in… but did you know that all calories are not created equal?
Take for example 200 calories of cake and 200 calories of chicken… sure they both have 200 calories but you’re body doesn’t look at it this way. Since cake is loaded with sugar and simple carbs (yuck!) it has your blood sugar sky rocket through the roof, you get a kick burst of energy, your insulin goes up and then the bad stuff happens:
Insulin promotes fat storage and that energy kick doesn’t last long. Up up up and then it plummets so you’re tired and craving more sugary foods.
BUT with the chicken... lean protein has a completely opposite affect on your body. Protein takes the most energy of all nutrients to break down so it has you feeling fuller longer. Also, there’s no affect on insulin and it actually helps you to lose weight. If you have been working out the protein is going to help your muscles repair and build (can’t say that the cake is going to help anything).
Now that’s just one example… showing off protein. But the other nutrients like fats and carbs are important too, as long as they’re the right kind of of fats and the right kind of carbs.
Basically I am just talking about eating clean… eating the best foods that give the best results for your body and helps you lose body fat, tighten and tone and feel energized throughout the day.
Before I go on to give you the foods that are going to help you blast and lose body fat I think you should have an explanation of where these foods are coming from. They aren’t foods that you’ll find in the “100 Calorie Packs” that are everywhere…
Eating clean foods are all natural, unprocessed, and without chemicals and nasty preservatives. They work with your body to boost metabolism, boost energy and… boost body fat burning potential! Especially when paired with a great women’s workout program.
Think of it as eating the way we were meant to, you know before McDonalds and Burger Kings popped up on every big intersection.
