I get asked on my radio and television shows repeatedly for what to do when you just can’t lose those extra pounds. I don’t mean by people who are couch potatoes either. These questions are coming from seasoned people who exercise semi-regularly and are looking for the edge. There is a key to unlock your body’s ability to drop those extra pounds. It is found in the way we eat. Our eating income routine will determine the body’s outcome. If you are attempting to drop those last few pounds, then you will be amazed at how easy it might be. Here is a tip that can help you increase the fat burning and help melt away that little excess hanging on the spare tire or the hips and thighs.
It comes down to the fat you eat each day. Fat? Yes the fat. Not the trans fats such as in fried foods, but the healthy monounsaturated fats that we need each day coming from nuts and seeds, oils, and fish. Many times we cut back on our fat thinking that it will make us hold on to the weight. The reality is that we typically will lose more body fat when we eat more. Numerous studies have been done to show us how this works. Our body’s work very well at using fat for fuel.
So how do you do it? It is good to focus on getting enough fat grams per day for your bodyweight. Make is a goal to take your bodyweight x .6 and that will give you your total grams for the day. So if you weigh 150lbs that would be 150 x .6 = 90 grams of healthy fats per day. The rule of thumb is to not eat the fats two hours before or two hours after your workout. Stick mostly to protein and carbohydrates during that time.
When you start adding in the right kind of fats, the metabolism will begin to work more efficiently and your hormone system has the opportunity to become optimized. Although calories do count, the right nutrients count to get the body working in it’s most efficient manner possible.
