Today I want to share with you “The 3 Best Carbs For Fat Loss” that I have had a lot of success with when trying to lose weight and burn fat.
Before Picture – Fat Loss
As you can see, last year I went from a pudgy 193 pounds to a lean and mean sub 179 pounds – using and limiting myself to the carbs I am about to reveal to you!
After Picture – Fat Loss
The key to “Switching On Your Body’s Fat Loss Switch” is to keep your carbohydrate level below 100 grams with low glycemic carbs on a daily basis… this will stabilize your insulin levels (your storage/ building hormone) and keep them low.
Insulin – Good For Building Bad For Fat Loss
Now, since Insulin is a storage/ building hormone it is important to understand that when your insulin levels are spiked by consuming carbs… it essentially turns off your body’s fat burning switch and starts to store the nutrients and energy to where it is needed most.
Insulin turns off your body’s Fat Burning Switch and turns on your Body’s Storage Switch.
What ever energy is present within your blood stream at that time will be transported to where it is needed most…
and if it is not required by your muscles or organs there is a high chance that it will end up and be stored as fat!
So you can see that 30 minutes after a workout is a great time to spike your insulin levels by consuming high glycemic carbs – preferably from fruits along with a whey isolate protein.
After a workout, your muscles energy stores are low and need to be replenished.
The high glycemic carbs will spike your insulin levels and signal your body to shuttle the energy, protein and nutrients in your blood stream to where they are needed most to promote growth and recovery… and after a workout that usually means your muscles and organs.
But lets say you eat a high glycemic meal on a non workout day…
Again your insulin levels will spike and your body will be signal to store the energy where it is need most… but since you haven’t worked out, your muscles really do not need that much as those energy stores will be almost full.
Your body at that point will take that energy and store it as fat on your body for a later date when your muscles and organs need it most… and that is how people get fat.
Here are The 3 Best Carbs For Fat Loss…
