Enjoy Carbs while Supporting Rapid Fat Burning

“Scott, what role do carbohydrates play in fat loss? I have been led to believe that eating carbs will cause body fat accumulation in all situations. I want to lose 15 pounds of body fat and maintain that ongoing.”

The right sources, timing, amounts and combinations of carbohydrates are very helpful for losing body fat combined with other critical strategies that we use with clients. We explain how to build a tolerance to carbohydrate within our new article. Yes, an absence of carbohydrates for a period of time is very effective for body fat loss especially for those people who do not respond well to carbohydrates and as a result release larger amounts of insulin which is the most potent fat storage hormones.

What Makes People Release Greater Amounts of Fat Storage Hormones?

Elevated emotional stress, suboptimal exercise recovery, poor sleep cycles, consumption of refined foods and other factors can contribute to conditions that cause the body to release excess insulin when consuming carbohydrate. High insulin levels create ideal conditions for body fat storage especially when excess carbohydrate is available to quickly shuttle into fat cells.

Increased exercise frequency to 5 short sessions per week can increase tolerance for carbohydrate in addition to short walks following meals.

Targeted Carb Loading

Clients always remark that our targeted carb loading strategies help them look leaner on the beach, which is not by accident. Following a period of low carb intake, the consumption of carbohydrates can be driven to muscles with vacant storage space which also draws water away from the stomach and also into muscle bellies! As Dr. Eric Serrano MD often remarks the right carb loading strategies are like adding a huge log to the fat burning fire. Also keep in mind that carbohydrate needs are activity dependent.

What Improves Tolerance to Carbohydrates?

Combining carbohydrates with organic protein sources including grass fed beef combined with organic dietary fat sources is very important. Focus carbohydrate intake during the meals following exercise which is ideally resistance training or rapid fat burning intervals. Focusing on carbohydrate sources that exist in nature such as potatoes, rice and fruits is far better than refined carbohydrate sources.

of meal plans including carbohydrate consumption protocols to accelerate fat burning.

Three weeks Zero Carb Primes the System

A three week period of zero carb intake outside of green vegetables is very helpful for improving tolerance to carbohydrate by optimizing many hormonal and metabolic factors. Our clients do not measure insulin levels the moment they consumer carbs, however how they look in the mirror and feel during the hours following the meal provides a strong indication of how the body responds to specific sources and amounts of carbohydrate.
