Has Your Metabolism Shifted? Is it Working Against You?
Your metabolism burns calories To Produce Energy - and it does that by burning Fats, Proteins, and/or Carbs.
The Problem: Too many people are burning carbs and proteins for energy instead of FATS! This leads to weight gain, fatigue, cravings, mood swings, hormonal imbalance, the inability to add lean muscle, and the list goes on . Stress (cortisol) and Diet are two major factors involved in your metabolism.
Exercise is a form of STRESS! The more Intense your Workout – the More Stress (cortisol) you produce. Can your body handle the additional Stress? Is your workout is more intense than you think? Maybe, you're burning Carbs and Proteins (lean muscle), instead of fats, which helps explain the sticking point. Don’t ASSume all calories burned come from Fats. If that were true, we wouldn’t have all this cellulite and flab hanging around. So, Train Smart!
Is Stress that missing piece of your Health and Fitness goals? The best Diet and Exercise programs can be halted by STRESS. Cortisol will shift your metabolism from burning fats, as well as, keep you in that ‘Catabolic’ breakdown phase after a good workout. But Cortisol isn’t a bad hormone! It does what it is designed to do. Unfortunately, many of us Unknowingly further Dis-STRESS our body by needlessly pump out more cortisol daily.
