Make 300 Calories Disappear Every Day ~ Really !

Enjoy a Healthy Body and Mind ~

Enjoy a Healthy Body and Mind ~

Hey Folks,

Was visiting with friends and we got to chatting on some cool ways to burn 30o calories.

Here’s the results of our chat (hope you enjoy and post your ideas too !  😉

Here’s a common myth…

When you want to lose a lot of weight, you should cut
calories for long periods of time, right?

WRONG.

Cutting calories magnifies nutrient deficiencies in
your body. This results in severe cravings as your
brain sends emergency “low nutrient signals” to your
stomach to eat more food.

Problem is, most people end up eating more “nutrient-dead
food” which causes cravings to completely spiral out of
control. (If you feel hungry all the time, now you know why.)

To make matters worse, after about a week of dieting,
your body is genetically programmed to fight back by
lowering the hormones responsible for keeping your
metabolism humming along (like the calorie-burning
thyroid hormones). At the same time, it will increase
the “hunger hormone” leptin. (Double whammy.)

As a result, your weight loss will come to a screeching
halt, lickity split.

At this point, to keep burning fat you’ll be forced
to reduce your calories even lower, and/or do MORE
exercise. (Not a fun problem to have… I’ve been
there.)

So what’s the solution? One of my favorite sneaky
tricks I call “The Thermal Burn Technique.”

You see, you really can fix your broken, calorie-burning
furnace, reverse nutrient deficiencies (that cause
cravings), and lose stomach fat all at the same
time by simply eating the right kinds of food.

Make no mistake, calories from different types of food
act very differently once inside your body. Some
of them ignite what I call “Thermal Burn” and others
are plain “Thermal Duds.” (For some reason, now I’m
thinking of “Milk Duds” chocolate candies. As Homer
Simpson would say, “Mmm…Duds.”)

Anyway, let’s start with fun ol’ fats.

FATS

Quality sources of good fats include oils such as flax,
olive, and coconut along with avocados and nuts like
walnuts, almonds and pistachios. Of course, we
can’t forget about seafood sources like wild salmon
and tuna, just to name a few.

Sure, fat is “fabulous” (did I really just say that?),
but here’s the rub: your metabolic rate (or metabolism)
will only increase by approximately 5% in
response to eating fats.

Oh friggin’ boy, right?

This means that for every 1,000 calories of fat you eat,
your body will burn only 50 of its own calories to digest
and process the fat you just consumed. No
big deal, right? (But remember, good fats help to “melt”
body fat in other ways, so don’t discount their importance.)

Carbs

Carbohydrates often get a bad rap, but the key is to eat
the right carbohydrates. Yes, as I’m sure you’re aware:
there are right and wrong carbs. Most simple carbs are
the wrong carbs—in fact, they are one of the top “obesity
additives” out there.

They tend to be highly processed and stripped of their
nutrients. Examples of foods that contain wrong carbohydrates
include soft drinks, candy bars, ice cream, donuts, cereals,
processed corn byproducts (HFCS), and processed “white foods”
like breads, pastas, and rice.

Remember, white foods are like white glue that keeps
your belly fat locked in place.

Instead, stick to natural carb choices such as fruits,
vegetables, legumes, and whole grains.

Now let’s get to the brass tacks…

When you eat carbohydrates, your metabolic rate will
increase by up to 10% (less for refined carbs like sugar
that are easily digested, more for high-fiber choices).
This means your body uses 100 calories to digest and
assimilate 1,000 calories of carbs.

Is it getting hotter in here or what?

PROTEINS

Protein has the highest Thermal-Burn of all foods,
increasing your metabolism by up to a whopping 20-30%.
POW! (That just happened…)

You see, protein is a very complex nutrient, so for
every 1,000 calories of protein you eat, your body will
use up to 300 calories to digest and process this
macro-nutrient.

This means you’re only netting about 700 calories for
every 1,000 calories you eat of protein.

So, you’re getting 300 “free calories.” (They’re gone… just
like magic.)

Protein also helps to build muscle (along with exercise),
and for every pound of muscle you add, you will burn
approximately 50 extra calories per day. Five
pounds will burn 250 calories per day. You get the picture.

Pretty cool, huh?

And here’s something even cooler… the “Thermal Burn”
of some natural foods is so high that they don’t even
register on the caloric scale.

Now, to back track a bit; I’m not suggesting that you
eat ONLY protein in an attempt to increase your metabolism.
(Cluck, cluck… another chicken breast anyone?)

No, not at all.

But what I am saying is that eating specific “Thermal-Burn
Meals” that combine precise amounts of protein, slow-absorbing
carbs, and a dollop of good fat, (love that word…dollop), will
help boost your mangled metabolism, crush cravings brought on
by nutrient deficiencies, and slash unattractive stomach fat.

The bottom line is that you’ll be able to eat MORE delicious
food, but with a lower calorie impact. More bang for your buck.
And I don’t know about you, but I LOVE eating, so this is
a very exciting way accelerate your results.

Here’s to living Boundrylessly within a healthy body and mind too !!

Enjoy Life !
