However, when there’s a large blood sugar spike, your body tends to "overreact" and produce too much insulin which is leading to high blood sugar know as “Hyperglycemia”
When excessive amounts of carbohydrates are ingested, particularly high glycemic (sugar content) simple carbohydrates, insulin converts the excess glucose in the blood into triglycerides (blood fat) that are then stored in the fat cells. And, worse yet, is the release of cortisol. Cortisol is a dangerous hormone that actually kills brain cells, increases fat storage, and breaks down lean muscle mass.
- Nutrition : Keep blood sugar stabilize
- Meal Intervals
- Nutrient Ratios Per Meal
- Calories Per Meal
- Fat is burned in muscle.
- One pound of muscle is 3 times smaller than one pound of fat.
- Each pound of muscle burns 30-50 calories per day.
- Standard Cardio (Walking, stair climbing, rollerblading, bike riding)
Muscle will shorten when it is used, and stretching keeps the muscle elongated. It will also keep the circulatory system active, and help remove toxins and fat from the body.
- Interval Training (sprinting, hill climbing)
any cardio that incorporates high intensity bursts of speed that causes a high heart rate. This type of exercise activates your type II muscle fiber.
- Core Work (pilates, yoga, swiss ball)
You are only as strong as your weakest link. Many people never strengthen their stabilizer muscles. Remember fat is burned in muscle; given the correct strategy, the more muscle you activate, the more fat is used for energy. A strong core also prevents injuries.
- Resistance Work (weight training)
The first 4 types of exercise enable each muscle fiber to work. Then implementing resistance training will promote muscle size increase and improve bone strength. This translates into more energy derived from stored fat.
