Science of Fat Loss- 2nd Unit

Steve July 10, 2014

The first unit of Fat Loss Science was the implementation of Strength Training into our daily routines to promote lean muscle development.  When you elicit the power of Strength Training in combination with the habit of the 2nd component below, you’re well on your way to achieving greater and more sustainable Fat Loss results.  If you missed the Strength Training piece, you can review it HERE.  The idea is to keep the choices and decisions we make for greater Fat Loss within our functional vehicle (our bodies), as simple and easy to transition as possible.

2nd Part to the Science of Fat Loss documentation:

Protein spreadEating Habits commonly referred to as “Diet“- by eating nutrient dense foods (lean protein, heart healthy omega’s, whole grain, etc.) every three hour, generally speaking, our bodies will ignite the burning of fat; it is the thermogenic effect of food.  The thermic effect of food is the caloric cost of digesting and processing different macronutrients in your diet.  This results in an instigation of metabolic increase and will fuel your body to burn fat up to 24 hours a day (in combination with the first component of Strength Training).  Processing protein requires the greatest expenditure of energy, with estimates ranging as high as 30%. Dietary fat, on the other hand, is not as easily processed and turns into body fat causing only 2 or 3% of calories burned through processing. The amount of energy required to process carbohydrates falls between that of protein and fat. It is essential to take in protein as it is also the building block of muscle. Eating pre and post workout is an essential factor too, our bodies need fuel to perform the workouts to our full potential just as much as we need the post workout to restore our nutrients, feed our muscles for repair and to start burning our fat metabolically.

Layer heavily in the blogging of the feelfitastic.com site are top recommendations that will lead you to making the smart decisions in mastering your eating habits right for you.

Stay tuned for the final two pieces and strategies that attach directly to this one two punch combo in the remainder July blogs.
