Fat is not inert. It is an active tissue intended to help keep us alive. The fat storage system is a genetic adaptation to prevent starvation. Many of us eat too much and are still starving for the correct nutrients. Fat is made from fat but the government surveys NHANES says we are eating much less fat than ever. Some stats say we are not eating much more carbohydrate either but we are eating carbs that are higher in their glycemic load meaning they get into the blood fast and cause high levels of insulin. Insulin is the number one hormone stimulator of fat storage. Others are cortisol – our natural steroid and estrogen which we produce but which we also eat!
Our bodies burn fat when we don't have glucose to use as fuel. The body prefers to burn a mixture and long slow exercise seems to enhance the burning of fat. More important than burning fat is not storing fat and fat storage is stimulated by insulin, especially when insulin levels are high and high insulin levels are from carbohydrate consumption.
There is no medication that causes us to burn more fat directly. Known medications and some herbs enhance metabolism which causes more caloric consumption at rest. Other medications block the absorption of macro nutrients. Mostly fat. But long term use has some side effects like incontinence and diarrhea and extereme flatulence. They also interfere with the absorption of fat soluable vitamins like A, E, D and K.
Adequate sleep is a must. Remember cortisol? Lack of sleep stimulates cortisol production and cortisol stimulates fat storage. Low intensity exercises – walking, yard work, playing tag, playing catch, lifting heavy stuff and carrying it like bags of mulch and other stuff at home all facilitate fat burning. 5 minutes here and there 12 times a day is equal in effect to 1 continuous hour of walking Cut the excess carbs especially sugars from fluids like soda, sports drinks and juice. If is it made from or contains large amounts of sugar, don't eat it.
If you eat 10 calories per pound of weight per day so if you weigh 150 pounds and you eat 1500 calories and do nothing but lie in bed all day, you will not lose weight. If you weigh 150 lb and are sedentary and should weigh 125 then if you eat 12 cal per pound of ideal weight (125) each day you would eat 1500 calories and you would slowly lose weight. If you are active for one hour a day then 14 calories per pound per day or 125 x 14 = 1750 calories per day are necessary to maintain 125 or lose from 150. It is important that you do not eat simple carbs like sugar, only complex carbs from whole fruits and veges
You should become familiar with the charts of high glycemic index and load foods you like. Google the words and you will find lots of information Remember I talked about estrogen stimulating weight gain? Often our food has soy additives that are loaded with plant estrogens. Many of these estrogens are active in our bodies. Soy that has been fermented for 30 days in the traditional Chinese fashion loses this property but in America, additives are used to give soy the same characteristics in much less time. Fat is good for you but you have to keep it in line with your total calories.
Play is under rated. It helps stress, lowers adrenalin, cortisol and insulin in our blood and is a great way to get in that hour a day of activity. Many of us are competitive. Hold occasional competitions with friends and family. Buy a cheap digital camera and get out and start taking pictures, walk around and shoot pics of flowers, insects, neighbors, cars and anything that interests you. Just get out and do something - move!
