How does it work?
- How the body stores energy
- How the body uses energy
- our hormones role in this process The body is either in a state of storing energy or burning energy.
There is no middle ground. What does this mean? If you aren't burning sugar, you're storing it as either fat or glycogen. Does this mean you have to work out constantly? Short answer no. Exercise is only 10% of the weight loss equation. Your body burns energy in many different ways. When you are stationary, your body uses energy as it completes its functions. This is what BMR means. Even though your cells might be burning energy, any excess will be stored. This would be considered a state of storage.
Wait! Logic would dictate less food and more exercise if we were burning sugar or storing it. It seems straight forward. If you are reading this, you most likely have tried this approach. Either you saw results in the beginning, only to have them come to a halt, or you put it all back on when you return to your normal lifestyle.
