3:10 How to burn fat calories
Today we’re going to cover burning calories vs. burning fat calories. When you exercise, it’s rare that you will burn any fat calories at all. The calories that you burn when you exercise are mainly stored sugar calories in the form of glycogen.
What really determines if you’re going to burn fat calories is if you keep your dietary carbohydrates or glucose really low. Drinking things like Gatorade or eating fruit after a workout will pretty much nullify any benefits of exercise. This is because you’re going to burn up that sugar instead of your own fat.
If you exercise in the absence of glucose and sugar in your diet, you will trigger hormones that will work for you 24-48 hours later when you’re sleeping. The benefit of exercise is mainly in recovery. But, if you have any sugar before, during, or after exercise, you won’t burn fat calories.
When eating fewer calories, it matters what kind of calories you’re eating less of. Fat calories are neutral when it comes down to triggering insulin. If you’re eating fewer carbohydrate calories, that’s good. But, if you’re eating fewer fat calories and keeping your carbohydrate calories high, you won’t lose weight. It’s not about burning calories. It’s about burning fat calories.
To burn fat calories, you have to keep your glucose and sugar as low as possible (20-50g per day or less).
