Ok, I don’t mean to get too scientific, but this is super important. You see, while busting the belly fat does take effort, it’s not nearly as hard as people make it out to be.
Seriously, the most important part of the process is arming yourself with the CORRECT knowledge. If you know how your body works…why it stores belly fat…what actually causes it to burn off…you’re much better off.
Now, I know there are a ton of so-called experts out there that are confusing the heck out of you. I know many people tell you different things. It can be as frustrating as all get out. But if you follow these simple rules and burn them into your brain, things will be very different.
Anyway, let’s get to today’s easy lesson. Check this out:
– Increased Protein intake triggers the hormone Glucagon.
– This, in turn, prevents the spiking of your insulin (which is also a hormone) levels.
– Which simply means you minimize the chance of storing blood sugar as fat.
In other words, eat more protein and you bust the belly fat. Sure, there’s more to it than that, but that is the crux of it. And, so long as you understand the basics, you can KEEP the belly fat from coming back.
When you only eat carbs, your insulin levels go through the roof. And all that blood sugar (that’s what the carbs turn into after you’ve eaten them), which isn’t needed by your body, MUST go somewhere. Yup, it goes to your belly; or your butt; or your hips; or your thighs…
The best part is, it’s not very hard to consume more protein. In fact, it’s pretty darn easy. A high quality protein powder will do just the trick.
As you’ve probably heard, my buddies over at Prograde Nutrition have launched their new Prograde Protein powder. What you may not have heard is it tastes great AND it does NOT use any artificial sweeteners.
It’s naturally flavored with Stevia. Grab a bottle TODAY and make it easy to get more protein in your eating plan.
I cannot recommend Prograde Protein highly enough. These guys create the highest quality products out there.
That’s why I am a Prograde Nutrition Partner.
