Fat Loss Instead of Weight Loss

Fat tissue is built with the help of the hormone insulin. When insulin levels are high, we store the energy from our food as fat. Carbohydrates (bread, pasta, noodles, potatoes etc), if consumed in excess, will be converted to fat and stored in the fat tissue.

Insulin is released in response to:






























These are the steps to gain fat tissue:
  1. High carbohydrate diet.
  2. Pancreas releases big amounts of insulin.
  3. Food will be stored in the fat tissue and not burnt in the muscle.
And these are the steps to lose fat tissue:
  1. Low carbohydrate intake, high fat diet.
  2. Insulin is released in small amounts.
  3. Food will be burnt as energy.
As long as insulin levels are high, weight loss is very difficult. If weight loss happens as a result of extreme exercise, once the workout stops, weight comes back. Exercise only, will not lead to sustainable weight loss.

The results of studies comparing a low-carbohydrate versus a low-fat diet show that low-carbohydrate diets not only lead to more weight loss, but also improve cardiovascular risk factors:

Low-carb vs. low-fat diets: Clinicians weigh in
"Both the low-carbohydrate and the low-fat groups received dietary counseling at regular intervals but had no specific calorie or energy goals. At one year, both black and white participants on the low-carbohydrate diet had greater decreases in weight, fat mass, and other cardiovascular risk factors than those on the low-fat diet."

    1. Do you know the 2 biggest reasons men and women stop exercising?

      1) Lack of time
      2) Lack of motivation

      Let's tackle "Lack of Time" today with 5 ways you can get your
      workouts done faster. After all, no one should spend more than 50
      minutes in the gym.

      Here are 5 ways to cut time from your workouts.

      a) Supersets

      I use "non-competing" superset. This means, choose two exercises
      for different muscle groups - and preferably completely opposite
      movements. For example, choose a push and a pull. That way, one
      muscle group rests while the other works...and you cut the rest
      time you need between sets.

      b) Choose a better warm-up strategy

      Don't waste 10 minutes walking on the treadmill. Instead, use a
      total body circuit of bodyweight exercises as a general warm-up, and
      then move directly into specific warm-up sets for your first two
      exercises.

      c) Pair dumbbell and bodyweight exercises together in your
      supersets

      This saves you time at home (you don't need to change the dumbbell
      weight between exercises) and in the gym (you don't need to fight
      for 2 sets of dumbbells).

      d) Choose Intervals over slow cardio

      The latest research shows more weight loss when people use
      intervals, and intervals take half as long to do.

      e) Limit the use of isolation exercises

      Pick multi-muscle exercises, such as squats, pulls, pushes, and
      rows. If you have time, you can squeeze in some dropsets for arms
      and shoulders if you want. However, if you only have 3 sessions of
      45 minutes per week, isolation exercises must be the first to go.

      In addition, don't spend more than 10 minutes per week on direct ab
      training. It's not efficient and won't give you rock hard abs
      alone.

      PS - Don't know where to start?

      If you are a beginner, start by reading Dr. Mohr's nutrition
      guidelines...eating properly will be the biggest factor in your
      early success.

      Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to
      prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.

      For others, it's best to start with the Intermediate Level TT
      workouts. If those aren't enough of a challenge, you can move onto
      the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program
      right through.

      If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.

      And then finish off with the TT Fusion Fat Loss program followed by
      the 30-day Maximum Fat Loss program to cap off a full 24 weeks of
      Advanced TT fat loss workouts.

      After that, choose between the TT for Women or TT for Muscle
      programs to help put the finishing touches on your physique. All of
      these are included as bonuses with Turbulence Training.

  5. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
