How to Take a Bite Out of Fat

Are you on a fat loss plan yet not seeing much in the way of results? Then it's time to examine the amount of energy found within the foods that you are selecting for your plan.

That's what losing is all about - as well as maintaining recommended weight. Caloric values of the foods that we insert into our plan become balanced with the energy expenditure; we know what happens to those stragglers - to those extra kcals that are not used at day's end, don't we?

In fact, this is how we come to put on all of those unwanted layers and layers of fat - and thank goodness that the cells filled with excess energy do make smooth layers rather than globs that accumulate on various spots of the body, right? At least that's one good bit of news.

The Big Health Picture

On that line of thought, if you are attempting to drop pounds then you're not going to accomplish such by looking at the carbohydrate, dietary fiber, protein grams, cholesterol content or even the fat distribution properties of a particular food for your plan. You're going to accomplish losing based on the amount of energy that you consume each day on the plan and how it balances out with the amount that you expend each day.

When we're referring to 'expend or expenditures' we're not just talking about exercise and activity which serve to use (or burn) energy (kcals). We're also talking about the amount of kcals used by the body in performing vital functions - and this amount will almost-always far exceed the energy amount used amid exercise, even when that activity is at a maximum level.

This doesn't mean that we can sit on our keesters and let our bodies do the work for us because without remaining activity, the muscles weaken. Even if we consume a daily diet that is rich in protein sources (protein supports muscle health). It's like an empty container. We add baking soda to the container. Nothing happens - excepting it probably smells fresh which is why this inexpensive product is so popular for household use.

The baking soda represents protein in the diet.

Now let's add some white distilled vinegar. We have quite a display going on now! Things are bubbling - erupting even to new proportions. The vinegar represents the activity that we put into our plan. Without such, muscle health will remain poor - no matter how much protein that we consume. And on that note, excessive amounts of protein in the daily diet aren't healthy and can jeopardize health, landing us in the nearest emergency room.

In Summary

Each and every tidbit that we consume - whether in liquid or solid form contributes to the number on our bathroom scales. The vitamin and mineral composite of these foods also matter as to our quality of health. When certain vitamins are lacking, it may slow or stop the progressing of weight loss - so that's reason enough to ensure that our bodies are getting the foods that fuel while we are losing.
