3 LAWS OF FAT BURNING - FAST PROTEIN EXPERT ADVICE
There are three essential laws if you will—that is all you need to shed that unwanted pounds from your midsection. Most of them are nutrition-driven, but training comes into play as well. These 3 laws of fat-burning combined with living a healthy lifestyle will help get you there.
1. Reduce your calories
To between 10 calorie per pound of body weight per day on workout days, or 2000 calories daily. On non-workout days, drop to about 9 calories per pound per day (1800 calories for the guy who's 200lbs). The easiest way to cut calories? Don't snack and eliminate excess dietary fat—meaning no butter, oils, or salad dressings (low-fat or fat-free dressings are OK); remove the skin from chicken; substitute egg whites for most of your whole eggs; avoid whole-milk dairy products, etc Keep some healthy fats in your diets, such as salmon, , avocados, extra virgin olive oil, and nuts. And not all nuts are created equal. Some have more carbs than others. We recommend almonds, pistachios, brazil nuts and to a lesser extent walnut. Avoid cashews and peanuts.
Though calorie control is a must, hormonal control is nearly as important. Coupled with calories, hormones govern fat-burning. Suppress fat-storing hormones and you can expect a significant amount of body fat to melt away. The ideal way to control these hormones is to keep your carbohydrate intake in check since carbs kick up insulin, a hormone that inhibits the fat breakdown and drives fat storage. Eat fewer carbs and insulin levels tend to moderate, leading to fat loss. Of course, not all carbohydrates are equal. In short, fast-digesting carbs tend to create a large insulin burst, leading to more potential fat gain. These carbs include white bread, most cold cereals, any sweets, rice cakes, white rice, and white potatoes. Conversely, slow-digesting carbs such as oatmeal, whole grains, and legumes don't cause much of an insulin rise, so these should make up the vast majority of your carb consumption. The common sense approach is to halve your carbohydrate portions to control your insulin control. The less carb, the better.
3. Avoid Sugar when possible
We don't need to talk too much about this. Everyone know sugary soda, high corn syrup drinks, and fruit juices with added sugar are to be taken in moderation if not eliminated all together. Sugar is not your friend. Treat it as such. Read the nutritional label and ingredient list for percentage of sugar content. If you’re looking for rough guidelines, here is how much sugar you could have per day according to the American Heart Association:
Women: 100 calories/day (about six teaspoons, or 25 g);
Men: 150 calories/day (about nine teaspoons, or 36 g)
