My name is JJ and most of my life I've never really had a weight problems. I was pretty active and always seem to have a high metabolism rate. However, when I turned fifty-five I actually started gaining weight and put on 30 pounds over the course of a year, especially in my belly. I needed to shed some weight, but instead of trying one of those crazy fad diets I decided I would do my own research.
Over the course of five months, I read numerous nutrition books, medical journals and consulted with Fitness experts to figure out the best and healthiest way to lose weight without depriving myself of some of the foods that I really enjoy.
After all everyone enjoys eating...and the thought of eliminating all the foods a person loves is too restrictive and not a great long term plan. Most diets will tell you that in order to burn fat you have to restrict yourself and just eat gobs of chicken with vegetables all day. They don't want you to eat any of your favorite foods like ice cream, pizza, etc.
I found that the concept of losing fat is simple. It just comes down to burning more calories than what you take in each day. Even know that sounds so simple many people struggle with this. In fact, many people will try to do all these crazy fad diets...low fat, low carb, Atkins, South Beach, Keto, Vegan, etc. And many of these diets in the short-term will lose weight as you are taking in less calories than what you burn. However, I found that most people on those fad diets will put the weight back on within a year or two. Why...because it is not an enjoyable long term solution, as it is restricting of foods you love. In fact, just the word "diet" sounds so restrictive.
I found a great formula that worked for me, and will work for you as well.
There is a right percentage of proteins, carbs, and fats that you need to take each day. Most people do not get the right percentage with way to little protein and too many carbs. In addition, I do have a list of foods the help burn fat.
There is one myth I found that surprised me. A common food we eat that most of us thought was good for us, actually spikes blood sugar and stores fat. Believe it or not it is wheat.
Wheat actually has an unusual type of carbohydrate (not found in other foods) called Amylopectin-A , which has been found in some tests to spike your blood sugar HIGHER than even pure table sugar. Find out more on https://foodsburnfat.com/why-wheat-is-bad for you.
