Ever wondered why the weight loss is stagnant while the waistline seems to be increasing, and the muscles around the arms and legs are shrinking. Tried a number of diet charts, fat burners, endless personal training sessions and yet no weight loss, sad isn’t it.
Your carbohydrates (carb’s) intake is the answer. To effectively lose weight (fat), the ratio of carbs must look like this.
If one is consuming anything more it means “getting fatter.”
Carbs are a quick energy source to fuel your body and provide energy to carry out physical activities. They breakdown into simple glycogen, the excess gets stored into the body reserves and is later converted to fatty acids with insulin’s aid and held at various spots (liver, belly, thighs, lower back fat).
When carbs are consumed in deficit quantity it forces the body to keep the insulin spike low, avoiding fatty acids conversion. The body now seeks energy from fat reserves (belly, thighs, lower back) to fuel the system, resulting in FAT LOSS. The body also tends to burn some muscle, however, keeping the protein intake moderately high replaces this loss.
Final verdict “Fat loss and muscle preserved”
So watch your Carb intake from the next meal on, and there you have “the magic weight loss pill.”
