Eating less food is not the answer. The secret to Shake It is understanding how to ‘switch on’ effective fat burning.
How Shake It Works: Switching on Fat Burning
Your body has three main sources of energy. It can burn fat, glucose (carbohydrate), or protein. When we burn fat, we produce substances called ketones. These are produced normally, and when we measure these ketones in our urine, we know we are burning fat efficiently.
High levels of dietary carbohydrates, also known as high glycaemic load foods (e.g. sugars and starchy foods such as bread, rice, pasta and potatoes), work with the hormone insulin to ‘switch off’ fat burning and increase fat gain.
It becomes virtually impossible to lose fat if you have raised insulin levels.
When your body’s blood sugar and insulin levels are low enough you will switch to a higher level of fat burning. This is the secret to Shake It. To burn fat you need to restrict high glycaemic load foods to a level where your body will produce less of the hormone insulin thereby increase the rate of fat burning.
Shake It Benefits
A common motivating factor for people wanting to lose body fat is to look good, however having a high percentage of body fat is known to be one of the most serious causes of ill health. Elevated fat mass also increases the frequency of muscular aches and pains and reduces energy production causing fatigue.
In Australia, the prevalence of obesity is skyrocketing with almost 55% of men and women currently overweight or obese. It is concerning to know that 20 to 25% of children are also obese or overweight. Excess body fat is undoubtedly one of the biggest health threats facing both us and our children’s lives. The good news is that losing even a small amount of body fat (as little as 10%) can reduce your chances of developing numerous diseases.
- Improved Energy Levels
Overweight and obese people have much less energy than people who have a healthy body weight. More energy means more vitality.
- Reduced risk of developing many Chronic Diseases
Being overweight dramatically increases your risk of developing a number of chronic diseases. Losing weight and keeping it off improves your long term health!
- Healthy Ageing
Obesity is related to unhealthy, premature ageing. Consider fat loss a type of ‘life insurance’.
- Empower Yourself!
Losing body fat is an incredibly powerful experience. You are actualising something that only you have the power to do and only you will truly experience the personal reward.
