bottom line...if you're a "Carb Burner,"
this could be KILLING your fat-loss
going to have a much
harder time losing fat than somebody
who is a "Fat Burner."
your body's preferred fuel is sugar/carbs...well,
that is what it's going to burn
INSTEAD of bodyfat, any chance
there IS a way to fix it, which I'll get
into below, after the quiz.
Burner or Fat Burner Quiz
#1 - True or False...If you go without carbs
for more than a few hours, you get an energy
crash, dizziness or a headache.
#2 - True or False...You need to have some
carbs to eat before you have enough energy to
train with any intensity.
#3 - True or False...You can't fall asleep
at night unless you eat some carbs in the evening.
#4 - True or False...If you don't eat carbs
for a good part of the day, you start to feel
#5 - True or False...When you go on a diet,
you have a lot of stubborn fat all over your
body that refuses to go anywhere.
you answered TRUE to one or more of these
questions, you are likely a Carb Burner...and
the more questions you answered "true"
to, the more your body relies on carbs as your
major energy source and the harder it will be
for you to lose fat.
the reason you're a Carb Burner is simple...your
eating patterns and activity patterns have favored
the "carb burning" machinery in your
body to be more active over the "fat burning"
basically haven't given your body a REASON
to switch to fat as a primary energy source.
It could be...
The types of foods you've been eating...
you eat low-fat foods all the time, your body
hasn't had the need to fully develop the cellular
"machinery" required to efficiently
burn fat for fuel. It turns to carbs/sugars...and
when they're not available, you get an energy
crash. When you're burning fat...no energy crash,
even when you don't eat for long periods.
The types of exercise you've been doing...
slow cardio does burn a somewhat greater percentage
of fat for energy WHILE you're doing it, but
has very little impact on your overall metabolic
rate...which is where the REAL fat-burning results
are. Your body uses fat to help fuel the recovery
process...if you've got nothing challenging
to recover from, your body won't demand much
from your fat stores!
You've never really FORCED it to burn
fat for energy as a preferred fuel source...
body is a very efficient machine in many ways.
And one of those ways is that it will do as
little as possible to deal with the demands
placed on it as a survival mechanism. If you've
always fueled yourself with carbs and never
forced your body to burn fat for energy, it
has no reason to learn HOW to really use fat
get me wrong, though...I'm not saying
carbs are somehow bad or evil...carbs
are just fine. It's just important to
know how and when to best eat them so
that they work FOR you, not against
if there was a way to RESET your body's
fat burning switch so that your body burns
fat FIRST every time you move and exercise?
a super simple 3-step metabolic primer
from my colleague, and Stubborn Fat Expert,
Shaun Hadsall that TURNS OFF your body's
"addiction" to burning sugars,
while making your most stubborn fat your
"go to" energy source in ONLY
3 or 4 days.
STEP #1: Try to
consume zero starches or fruits for 3 or 4 days
in a row during the week.
will help accelerate depletion of glycogen (your
stored energy) and get your body burning fat
again. This should equate to a total of 25 to
50 impact carbs for the day. Consume protein
in every meal to help increase satiety and keep
your body in "fat burning
program your body to burn a ton more belly fat
by using this approach a just a few days of
STEP #2: Increase your fats and double your
servings of green cruciferous veggies on "deplete"
you lower carbs for a few days you'll automatically
need energy from other sources. Friendly fats
and cruciferous veggies should be your go-to
macronutrients to help provide this needed energy.
good examples to use are extra fish or krill
oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grass fed butter
and small amounts of raw nuts for fats -- spinach,
kale, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, arugula,
green beans, Brussels sprouts and cabbage are
great choices for extra veggies.
will help provide all the fiber, vitamins, and
minerals necessary to maximize fat-loss during
a lower carb phase.
will also decrease your cravings in a BIG way.
STEP #3: Double
your daily water intake when you deplete carbs.
for EVERY gram of carbs you eat over the weekend
(or any other time) your body holds nearly 3
grams of water.
if you had a few slices of pizza, some bread
and a bowl of ice cream we're talking an extra
700 to 1000 grams of water sitting under your
extra water is the fastest way to UNDO the damage
of over-eating, getting rid of excess water
retention, and facilitating other metabolic
processes that burn fat.
good rule of thumb is to consume at least 50-60%
of your total body weight in ounces of water
a few days after overeating.
3 or 4 days of using this strategy, your body
and hormones will be PRIMED to burn PURE fat
when you exercise.
Next, you just have to make sure you're using
the RIGHT TYPE of exercise...or all this could
be nothing but a waste of your time and energy.
