Diet, exercise, and glycogen levels

It seems that, these days, people are willing to do whatever it takes to lose their excess body fat.

Coincidently, there is no shortage of diet pills, miracle diets, and over-hyped exercise equipment that caters to a desperate crowd. Not only are these “fad” solutions expensive, for the most part, they’re also fairly ineffective.

If you’re serious about losing body fat, you’ve got to get back to basics and look at the type of food you’re eating and the amount of exercise you’re getting. When it’s all said and done, a proper diet and exercise routine will do more for you than just about anything.

Not only that, but any progress you make is likely to be permanent.

Here are a few things to consider when losing body fat:

Diet – in order to lose weight, you’ve got to burn more calories than you take in. Simple, yet most people fail to grasp this important concept.

Of the calories you do consume, try to cut down on carbs (especially simple carbs).

In the evening, you should try to avoid eating carbs altogether.

Weight training – it’s no secret that the more muscle mass you have, the more fat your body’s going to burn. For every extra pound of muscle you manage to develop, you’ll end up burning 30-50 calories, even at rest.

Cardio – the optimum environment for fat burning is before you eat. Your glycogen levels are low and this is the ideal time to do your cardio exercises.

Essentially, you’re going to get more bang for your buck.

Ideally, you should exercise before breakfast when your glycogen levels are at their lowest.

Weight training also depletes your glycogen levels.

Therefore, doing your cardio after weight training is perfect for more efficient fat loss.

Fat loss really comes down to proper diet and exercise.

There is no secret or magic pill, regardless of what advertisers would have you believe.

Once you get it, prepare yourself for some real results!
