Then you get into the insane mismatch of the promotion of maintenance of steady blood sugar via constant eating and our actual evolutionary history and the concomitant devastation that has on metabolic health.
  5. Check if strength training thing is true We lose muscle mass as we age. Strength training, such as lifting weights helps us build muscle. Muscles use up more energy and therefore burn more calories. Weight training builds muscle, and muscle burns more calories than fat-up to three times more. “So the more muscle you have, the more calories you’re going to burn. It doesn’t end after you leave the gym either. Your body is still torching calories for the next 24 to 48 hours as it works to repair stressed muscle tissues. That’s known as the afterburn effect, another name for excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). The more oxygen you use both during and after a workout, the greater the EPOC. And studies show strength training is one of the best ways to do it. 6. Cut down on refined products. Whole grain >>> 7. Add more fiber 8. Vitamins and minerals 9. Cutting calories and getting more physical activity is the best way 10.
