Remember, nothing causes us to burn fat faster than starvation. But…starvation has negative consequences on our lean body mass. So, ideally, we want the body to “think” we are starving so that it is breaking down triglycerides and burning that fat for our energy needs. Since the body relies primarily on carbohydrates for its energy, when we remove those carbohydrates, the body will be forced to get its fuel elsewhere. Now, in the case of starvation, the body would normally begin to break down lean body mass for glucose (energy) via a process known as glucogenesis. However, since we are “sneaking” small amounts of protein to the body, we end up getting all the “benefits” of starvation without the loss of our precious lean body mass. Now, glucogenesis will be completed by using the protein we are getting from our diet which spares our lean body mass. And, consuming less carbohydrates increases glucogenic activity. The presence of glucogenic activity means we cannot store fat because that glucogenic activity needs all the fat it can get to be able to fuel the glucogenic process. In other words, glucogenesis requires a lot of energy…and it will burn even more fat to supply that energy. This results in the ability to turn our bodies into a 24/7 fat burning machine. And needless to say, maximizing the hours that your body is burning fat in a day is the ultimate key to a sexy, lean body. Again, your body NEEDS energy on a 24/7 basis. Without carbohydrates, your body is forced to turn to an alternate fuel source to keep you running all day long. So, let’s get now get our bodies revved up to burn body fat on a 24/7 basis.
