NUTRITION AND FAT BURNING

The fact, that nutrition is key to fat burning and losing weight is quite trivial. When we examine the topic, the question emerges: which of the many variables is the most important, when it comes to fat burning? Instead of one variable, I’d like to mention 3 different ones – in their order of importance.


Most important is calorie balance – you can’t bypass the first law of thermodynamics, the conservation of energy. If you eat more than you expend, you will gain weight. If you eat less, than you expend, you will lose weight. So, burning fat, and getting rid of unwanted fat starts with a diet that is in caloric deficit.


Eating a diet, that provides less calories that we burn ensures losing weight – but our goal is not only to lose weight. Our goal is to lose as much fatmass as possible while maintaining our musclemass. To achieve that goal, our second most important factor is protein intake. Adequate protein intake helps muscle retention and recovery, while it can curb apetite and stabilize blood sugar.


The third variable I’d have you control is insulin. Insulin is the storage hormone, high insulin levels block fat burning, while increasing fat storage. Eat carbs from a low glycemic index source, to minimize insulin and maximize fat burning. 

To summarize things: eat less calories than you burn, eat enough protein, eat low GI carbs if you want to burn fat.
