How Many Calories Do I Need To Burn?
Dr. Len Lopez – Tuesday, September 04, 2018
This isn’t a trick answer, but the real questions isn’t how many calories do I need to burn in a day. The real question is, how many calories from FATS are you burning? Or more to the point ARE YOU Burning Calories from Carbohydrates, Proteins or FATS?
Your metabolism is designed to burn calories from Carbohydrates, Proteins or Fats. Those are the only 3 options!
The reason you burn calories is to produce energy! It’s that simple, you can burn calories all day long, but if you are Always burning carbs and proteins (lean muscle) you are always going to struggle with weight gain, fatigue, cravings, and the list goes on.
The key to taking and keeping the weight off is in making sure your metabolism is burning most of it’s calories from the breakdown of FATS. When you burn fats for energy, you produce more than two-and-a-half times more energy than you do when you burn carbs and protein. This is why it is so important to make sure your metabolism is working 23/7 to Burn Fats….Not Carbs and Lean Muscle!
This is again, why weight gain and fatigue go hand-in-hand….you’re burning the Wrong Fuel! If you’re not sure your metabolism is working right for you, use our Online Health Questionnaire to Check Your Metabolism.
