Test Your Metabolism

Is Your Metabolism Burning or Storing Fat?

Do you Stay in your Fat-burning zone 24/7?

Your metabolism burns calories from the break down of carbohydrates, proteins or fats

Those who are successful at losing weight and keeping it off are burning fats throughout the day.

Those who struggle with weight gain, fatigue, cravings, mood swings, and depression are typically burning carbs and proteins, Not stored body fat.

FACT…one of the fastest ways to get out of your ‘fat-burning’ zone is to skip a meal or eat the wrong foods (too many refined, processed carbohydrates).  The body is designed to burn fats throughout the day – this is the ‘fat-burning’ zone you want to be in.

You do not select any option

Blood sugar issues don’t seem to be a problem and your metabolism appears to be working fine.

I would suspect your metabolism is not burning fats 24/7 and this could be a reason you struggle with weight gain, fatigue, cravings, irritability, inability to concentrate, etc. I would recommend adjusting your diet so you can get your metabolism to work in your favor. Check to see if stress is contributing to this problem.

Your Metabolism is definitely out of balance and needs to be corrected. I would also suspect your adrenal glands are overworking as they try and help support your blood sugar. Adjusting your diet and supporting your adrenal glands will definitely help you.

FYI…As your blood sugar drops you begin to burn calories from carbohydrates and lean muscle – NOT stored body fat.
