The Science Of How To Burn Fat
Technically we’re ‘burning’ fat every minute of every day. What we’re really talking about here is increasing the amount of fat used as fuel that leads to weight or fat loss. And ideally, we are talking about burning fat while maintaining or building muscle.
Countless products and programs claim to increase fat burning. So how do you cut through the hyperbolic claims and empty promises to determine the most effective, efficient method? You look at the science. Here’s what science shows us
Why Insulin Is The First “Key” To Burning Fat
Research shows that controlling insulin levels is the key to burning fat. The real secret of increasing fat loss is to create a hormonal environment where insulin isn’t elevated. Insulin goes up in response to elevations in blood sugar.
This master hormone doesn’t respond to dietary fat. Protein, on the other hand, does raise insulin, but also triggers glucagon, insulin’s sister hormone that releases fat.
How Carbs Effect The Fat Burning Process
But carbohydrate and insulin are soul mates, and when you eat that slice of pizza or carrot cake, insulin rises to the occasion. And insulin does one thing really well: it stores fat.
If you want to burn rather than store fat, then, you need to control insulin release. And limiting carbohydrates provides a key to doing that.
Adopting elements of a low-carbohydrate diet optimizes body composition. When insulin levels are high, your fat cells essentially get ‘locked’ and weight loss becomes fiendishly difficult. When insulin levels drop, it becomes much easier to lose weight.
PEERtrainer has observed from its users, that when you eliminate grains and stick to protein (especially plant-based protein), tons of green vegetables and healthy fats, this lays the groundwork for overcoming weight loss resistance regardless of whatever health situation you are dealing with.
Author Gary Taubes states that “If you doubt insulin regulates fat accumulation in fat cells, you can literally look it up in any good biochemistry or endocrinology…textbook…Insulin puts fat in fat cells. That’s what it does. And our insulin levels, for the most part, are determined by the carb-content of our diet — the quantity and quality of the carbohydrates consumed.”
