Why is this such a familiar scenario:
You work out for hours…
Yet are still left wondering:
‘Why isn’t my body changing??’
Three reasons you TRAP fat on your body:
#1 Hormone Imbalances
Fat storing hormones like cortisol keep your belly fat no matter how much you work out and in today’s high stress world this hormone is running rampant in most people’s bodies.
Hormones that can promote fat burning and youth – like human growth hormone, decline with age but can be naturally boosted with the right kind of exercise. (This does NOT include long boring cardio that actually increases fat storing hormones like cortisol.)
#2 Long Boring Cardio
Here are 4 of many reasons that long boring cardio causes you to trap fat on your body:
1) Slows down your fat burning hormones.
2) Makes you hungry so you end up eating more after the workout.
3) Makes you move less after exercise because you feel you’ve done enough for the day.
4.) Because you dread and dislike long boring cardio – you end up working at an easier pace than you think – reading magazines or watching TV while exercising.
So the trick is to stop the long boring cardio and replace it with a magic combination of high intensity training and the correct amount of time for the workout.
You can actually torch belly fat as energy by putting your metabolism into EPOC or Excess Post Exercise Consumption.
EPOC allows your body to burn up to 13% more calories three hours after exercise, and 4% after 16 hours post exercise.
#3 Processed Foods
No matter what your exercise plan, if you’re not backing it up with the right foods you will not get the results I know you can achieve.
Eating nutrient dense foods filled with protein and fiber will keep you full, so you won’t need to count calories or carbs and most importantly ever feel hungry.
This is why I LOVE the Isagenix systems. I have seen such huge changes since adapting Isagenix into my training. Everything from the cleansing to help with hormone imbalances, the whey protein, BCAA’s, the greens and the anti-oxidants all pre and post workout to help me train hard and recover fast. You put good into your body and your body will reward you.
