2/18/13- Paula's Eating/Exercise Journal: Thursday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 19. February 2013 09:00

It’s easy when your goal is fast weight loss, to assume radically reducing you calorie intake will be the solution.  This plan may show quick results, but after a brief time you will see that energy level for workouts is low, and that you may fall into a pattern of ‘ binge eating’ because your body is crying out for the fats to function. 

              Eating a diet rich in healthy fats can spare muscle glycogen, which can increase the length of your workouts.  A study in The American Journal of Physiology found that when people who did intense exercise had a diet very high in healthy fats, their bodies released more fats during exercise than when those athletes ate a more standard or very low calorie diet.  Bottom lines that you need to take into account your daily exercise input, and find a healthy diet with moderate fat intake, that allows you to loose weight safely.
