Chapter 1 , -hat Meta!olism %s
0our metabolism is a complex network of hormones and enCymes that converts
food Dproteins, fats, carbohydratesE into fuel and determines how effectively that
fuel is burned.
It is what happens when the nutrients released from the breakdown of foods get
into the cells. ThatFs when true nourishment of the body occurs and it happens on
a cellular level.
0our metabolism does other things too but what you need to know now is that
ultimately, your metabolism determines how >uickly you gain or lose weight.
Now, looking at this definition you might think that you have no control of your
metabolism since it runs automatically .(G3. The good news is that barring
certain situations such as having a poorly functioning thyroid or taking certain
medications Dfactors that can adversely affect your metabolismE, you can indeed

0our metabolism functions best when your body is in homeostasis Dinternal
stabilityE. %ut during times of stress and survival situations, your metabolism
shifts to a different setting.
The changes in metabolism during stress are essential to your survival. However,
if these changes are maintained for a prolonged period of time, your metabolism
can be negatively affected.
In times when you are stressed, adrenal gland hormones are produced in high
amounts. The stress could be anything; stress from a family situation, stress in
rush hour traffic or stress from financial pressure. 8ll stress has the same
physiological effect on the body.
These high levels of adrenal hormones cause shifts in your body. 0our memory
functions are enhanced. 0ou have a lowered sensitivity to pain. 0ou feel a burst
of energy. 8nd your immune system gets a super charge of energy.
These are good changes in certain situations, but only if they are short:lived. The
longer that your stress hormone DcortisolE level is high, the more damaging it is to
your health and the more fat your body could end up storing.
#xcess cortisol secretion can suppress thyroid function, increase abdominal fat,
raise blood pressure, lower immunity, promote higher blood sugar levels and
decrease your bone density and muscle mass.
&peaking of muscle, it is a very critical factor in fat burning. ,uscle is a
metabolically active tissue. In other words, muscle burns calories and it burns
more calories than fat does.
The last thing you want is a situation where you are losing muscle mass. I?ll talk
more about the important role of muscle:mass in later chapters.
Pay attention to your stress levels. Do activities that help to relax and de-stress

6roper sleep : perhaps the most ignored aspect of fat loss. Inade>uate sleep
wrecks your metabolism.
If you donFt get at least six hours of sleep, which is e>uivalent to four complete
"apid #ye ,ovement D"#,E cycles, then homeostasis does not rule your
nervous system and stress results. This shifts your metabolism pathways to ones
that store fat.
8s you already know, long periods of stress, such as what happens when you
are not sleeping well, could interfere with your bodyFs composition by increasing
fat and decreasing muscle. 8nd this in turn causes a sluggish metabolism.
&leep deprivation also interferes with hormones such as ghrelin and leptin, which
are essential to the control of appetite.
&leep deprivation increases inflammation in the body which in turn, increases the
risks of getting a whole host of illnesses. "esearch has shown that people who
are sleep deprived are at higher cardiac risk and also more likely to get certain
forms of cancer.
How much sleep should you get; 3:4 hours of deep uninterrupted sleep is ideal.
&leeping more than that regularly is likely to slow down your metabolism.
+hoever said sleep is overrated probably died prematurely. If you have a
problem falling asleep, you can take a safe non addictive sleep aid or consult
your physician.
However, be very wary of some of the sleep aids that are pushed by big
pharmaceutical companies. These can cause some harmful side:effects.

%efore you start any diet you need to know your baseline, that is, how many
calories your body needs to maintain your current weight. !rom this reference
point, you can know how many calories you need to cut and how many you need
to burn from exercise.
0our basal metabolic rate Jaka (M5 or sometimes used interchangeably with the
term Krest metabolic rateL D5M5EM is that baseline.
0our %," refers to the amount of calories that is needed when your body is at
rest, in order to breathe, circulate blood, keep your muscles toned, keep the
intestines moving, maintain your glandular activity and keep your body
temperature where it should be etc.
Now here is a surprising fact. The more you weigh, the faster your metabolism is
likely running. 8 large &umo wrestler that weighs 2-5 pounds has a higher %,"
than a woman weighing *25 lbs. This is because his body has to work harder to
carry around that extra weight.
The formula to calculate %," Dboth men and womenE is 235NJ.*.1 O $ean %ody

&o for the sumo guy to maintain his weight, he must consume .(2*.3. calories
daily. n the other hand, a *25lb woman with 35P $%, will need to consume
*.12 calories daily to maintain her weight.
Here is why knowing your %," is important.
In order to burn fat, you must consume less calories than your BMR.
But the source of your calories will affect your metabolism to your
advantae or to your demise.
0ou can find out your %," by running down to the local gym and having a
personal fitness trainer calculate it with a hand:held bio:impedance device. r

8t one time, many dietitians were telling people that Bust by decreasing their
calorie needs by -55 calories a day D2-55 weeklyE, they could lose a pound a
The premise of this diet was that Ka calorie is a calorie.L It didn?t matter where
calories were cut H the important thing was that calories were cut. This kind of
diet worked briefly but it turned out not to be effective in the long run.
Sust as ineffective for fat loss, was some people?s embrace of vegetarianism in
an effort to restrict their consumption of calories. They may have lost weight in
the early stages of their diets but eventually regained it. Not surprisingly, many of
them eventually gave up their vegetarian lifestyles.
+hy did these people fail; The reasons will be discussed in greater detail in
chapters 1 and 3. &uffice it to say, calorie restriction is fundamental to fat loss.
%ut when diets are based on severe calorie restriction or on the premise that all
calories are e>ual, then there is a problem.

%$ you want to lose $at, you must consume less calories than your #D77.
&ome people, including vegetarians, take the route of embracing a low protein
diet in order to restrict their consumption of calories. There are . potential pitfalls
with this diet.
!irst, to fill the void in calories that results from consuming less protein, some
people over:compensate by eating more refined carbs, foods that are high in
calories. This is one reason why some KvegetariansL complain that they are not
losing weight or losing very little.
The second reason is that by significantly cutting the protein in our diets, we are
affecting our bodyFs ability to burn fat at the highest level.
6rotein is on one the least efficient foods we eat and this is a good thingT In
protein, you are getting fewer calories with more volume. It actually cost your
body calories to access the calories present in protein. This is great for fat loss.
The process of your body accessing the calories from food is called
thermogenisis or the thermic effect of food DT#!E. Thermogenisis is what
happens in addition to your %,".
$ean protein has a thermic effect of around 25P. Therefore, if you consume *55
calories from lean protein, your body will burn around 25 calories Bust to digest it.
Thus your net calorie intake would be 35. &o essentially, it is harder for your
body to store calories from protein.
!iber:containing complex carbs Dsuch as beans, vegetables, whole grainsE have
a thermic effect of around .5P.
n the other hand, fat and refined carbs have a thermic effect of Bust 2P which is
Eat For A Ried Body ! htt "##Burnthe$at%&mroveMetabolism%com#
Kickbutt Metabolism - The Truth About Permanent Fat Loss 12
why dietary fat and sugary foods are so easily stored as body fat. &o if you
consume *55 calories from refined carbs H your net calorie intake will be 93.
In one sense, the thermic effect of food refutes the idea that a calorie is a calorie.
&ure, on a unit by unit basis, * calorie Q * calorie. %ut as you Bust saw, some
calories are more easily assimilated into the body and are more likely to cause
weight gain.
8lso bear in mind that some calories are KemptyL H they offer little or no
nutritional value but contribute greatly to weight gain.
6rotein has other benefits too. #ating protein sends the KI am full signalL faster to
the brain and hence cuts off appetite faster. 6rotein takes longer to be emptied
from the gut, making you feel full for longer periods and making you less likely to
binge. 6rotein also supports muscle:mass.
6rotein also slows down the absorption of sugar. This is why it is suggested that
you should eat carbs and protein together. +hen you do so, rather than getting
the famous Ksugar crashL : you get a slower more stable release of energy
throughout your body.
%ecause of the significant drop in calories that dieters on low protein diets can
experience, they often find themselves in a state of constant physiological and
emotional hunger. +hen this happens, they tend to crave refined carbohydrates,
which are foods high on the glycemic index.
High glycemic foods tend to be foods that contains lots of sugar or high fructose
corn syrup DH!)sE. )onsuming these foods will cause your insulin to spike and
likely lead to unwanted weight gain and an increased risk of getting some very
nasty illnesses.
&o, ensure you are getting ade>uate protein in your diet. The success of your fat
loss regimen depends on it.
"esearchers at the Denmark ,niversity o! 0openhaen contend that a diet rich
in lean meats' poultry and beans and lo% in starchy carbohydrates appear to be

Chapter ? 0 #he Dou!le,7dged )word o$ Cutting Calories
It is the mantra for legions of dieters, cut calories and cut more calories. %ut
whilst it is an indisputable fact that to lose fat you must consume less calories
than you burn, the story doesn?t end there.
)utting calories is a double edge sword that must be handled with care. 8s a
matter of fact, very low calorie diets usually results in greater weight gain after
the initial weight loss slows.
Here is why. +hen you are heavy, your body?s metabolism is already running a
little faster. %ecause essentially, you body needs more energy to fuel itself.
&o when you first start to diet and cut calories, you tend to experience weight
loss >uicker. 8nd so you think great H I?ll cut even more calories.
%ut after a while, your body figures out what is going on and starts to slow down
your metabolism to conserve fat for energy. This is work of your body?s defense
mechanism, which is only concerned with your body?s survival. It doesn?t care
about your goal to look good in a swimsuit.
&ome of the other aspects of your body?s defense mechanisms include<
*.0our cells release less leptin hormone. This hormone signals to your brain that
you are full. $ess of it means you end up eating more.
.. 0ou lose muscle mass. &ince muscle burns more calories than fat, your
muscles need a lot of energy to keep them going. 0our body tries to conserve on
calories by cannibaliCing on its own lean tissue.
2. 0our body kicks your hypothalamus into high gear. 0our hypothalamus is the
appetite center of the brain. 0ou become ravenous for food : especially carbs
high in sugar.
The end result of all this is that your weight loss slows considerably and your will
to continue dieting falls flat. 0ou also have less muscle mass than before so now
you look fatter.
8dd all of this to your slowing metabolism and your increasing appetite for carbs
high in sugar, you start gaining weight and potentially end up heavier than
*. Avoid very lo% calorie diets. $n the lon term' they make you !atter.
2. 3et more exercise and overall try to live a more active li!estyle. Physical
activity causes you to burn more calories even %hen your body is at rest.

your metabolism and accelerating your fat loss.
8 little later in this ebook, I?ll talk about another critical step : exercise. %ut in this
chapter, I want to impress upon you the new way you are going to have to start
looking at your diet. The old way of eating anything in sight won?t cut it.
&ince you are overweight, it is very important that you start analyCing the
composition of your food. %y altering the ratios of proteins, fats and
carbohydrates in your meals, you can turn your body into a fat burning machine.
0ou see, food has one of two fates in metabolism< it either ends up causing the
bodyFs cells to store fat, or it causes the bodyFs cells to breakdown fat.
If you are reading this ebook in search of a Aickbutt ,etabolism, then your
metabolism is most likely leaning towards one that causes the bodyFs cells to
store fat instead of burning it.
&o how do should you analyCe food. $et me show you an example.

8ll products that contain any of the above mentioned foods
This list will become the basis for how you make any food:related decisions in
the process of creating a Aickbutt ,etabolism.
ItFs very easy to make serious mistakes in food selection and many people do
this every day of their lives. ThatFs one of the maBor reasons why we have such
an epidemic of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other chronic diseases.
7id you notice on the lists that milk products were mentioned on every list;
ThatFs because first of all, milk is a protein, but it also has >uite a few
carbohydrates in it. ,ilk can also have varying degrees of fat in it, based on how
it has been processed.
7id you notice that nuts are not listed on the protein list; ften, people think that

The foods on that list are complete proteins, which means that these proteins will
give you all the amino acids re>uired for life. 0ou could subsist on foods from the
protein list if you had to, without developing a protein deficiency.
This isnFt the case with the protein from nuts. Nut protein is missing at least one

nuts, you will eventually suffer from a protein deficiency.
7id you also notice that * oC cashews provided *..( grams fat and 4.- grams

0ou won?t create a Aickbutt ,etabolism on diet alone. 0ou must exercise as
Here are some of the things exercise does<
U Increases circulation throughout the organs and tissues and the extra blood
feeds and nourishes the cells by bringing them nutrients. The added blood flow to
organs is a good way to keep those organs, especially the heart, reBuvenated.
U &trengthens the heart and allows you to utiliCe oxygen optimally.
U Increases the production of endorphins, which are chemicals produced in the
brain that make us feel happy. If you recall, attitude is one of the factors on the
list that can affect metabolism.
U Tones your body, reduces fat and increases muscle mass. If you recall, the
greater your lean body mass, the higher your metabolism is likely running.
How to Wuantify 0our #xercise
8ll exercise will increase blood flow in the body but the faster you increase the
blood flow Dup to a certain pointE, the more you will increase your metabolism
That Xcertain pointF is based on the target heart rate during exercise. This rate is
calculated like this<
Target heart rate Q 15P to 4-P of your maximum heart rate.
,aximum heart rate Q ..5 minus your age.
$ook at the target heart rates of the following age groups
.5 year old< *25:*35 beatsGminute
25 year old< *.2:*1. beatsGminute
(5 year old< **3:*-2 beatsGminute
-5 year old< **5:*(- beatsGminute
15 year old< *5(:*21 beatsGminute
35 year old< 94:*.4 beatsGminute
!or people who are very out of shape H having your target heart be --:3-P of
your maximum is a good start.
If your heart rate is in this Cone for a good portion of your exercises, you are
on target to increase your metabolism and burn fat at a good rate. If your heart
Eat For A Ried Body ! htt "##Burnthe$at%&mroveMetabolism%com#
Kickbutt Metabolism - The Truth About Permanent Fat Loss 23
rate is too low, increase the intensity of your exercises to get your heart rate to
the correct level.
+hy is this important; If you donFt put out the minimum amount of power needed
in your exercise to raise your heart rate to the desired Cone, don?t expect to lose
much fat.
n the other hand, if your heart rate is too high, you run the risk of over:training,
burning yourself out and inBury. ver training can lead to increased appetite
which can lead to weight gain because people tend to over:eat the wrong foods.
#xercise Increases 0our %,"
Now, here is something very important. #xercise increases your %," in a way
you might not expect.
,any people think that after they stop exercising, they are not burning calories.
%ut this is not the case. 7epending on the type of exercise you do, your body can
be burning calories Dat restE up to 21 hours after you exercise.
Isn?t this great H you could be taking a shower, watching tv and your metabolism
is burning extra calories. This is what you need to achieve great results in your
fat loss.
8nd this is what overweight people who go for KwalksL need to know. +alking
has gotten a lot of press lately as a way to lose fat. %ut Bust going for stroll is not
going to cut it.
If you are walking in order to lose fat H you have to make it brisk. %etter yet H
walk briskly up a hill or walk briskly up a hill wearing a backpack with some soup
cans in it. The added weight will get your heart rate up and you?ll do more than
Bust break a sweat.
If you are older or pregnant, then you may not be able to walk briskly or walk up
a hill. If this is the case H Bust walk normally for about .5:25 minutes to start. 8s
the saying goes, Kthe best exercise to do is the one you can do.L
%est #xercises !or !at %urning
However, not all exercises are e>ual in terms of their fat burning capabilities. I
have previously mentioned the limitations of walking and that if you expect to
seriously lose fat and build lean muscle H walking is not up to scratch.
8erobics or cardio is another form of exercise that, far from being useless, is not
the best for fat:burning. Sust have a look at some of tv?s top proponents of
aerobics. 0ou?ll see that even after years and years of aerobics H they are still
chubby or have little muscle mass.

Kickbutt Metabolism - The Truth About Permanent Fat Loss 24
The reasons they are chubby are likely to be a combination of inefficient
exercises and poor eating habits. $et me explain.
The !ody pre$ers $at $or $uel when you do steady state, low intensity exercises
such as cardio. Now you might think that is great H cardio burns fat. %ut wait...not
so fastT
If all you are doing is low intensity cardio H your body being the remarkably
adaptable machine it is, becomes more efficient at holding $at in order to make
you more efficient at cardio exercises. verall, you may lose fat but not as much
as you?d like.
Typically, don?t expect to lose much fat doing only .5 minutes of low intensity
aerobics. To maximiCe fat loss from aerobics, you have to up the intensity and do
25:15 minutes about 2 times a week.
&ome people go to the extreme H and do fre>uent long duration cardio H such
those who do marathon running. $ong duration cardio triggers your body?s
defense mechanism and causes your body to KfeedL on its own muscle. If you
recall, it is the same thing that happens when you go on a very low calorie diet.
8gain, what your body is doing is adapting to the situation by Kstripping downL to
its lowest mass in order to make you more efficient at long distance running.
This is why many marathon runners look as skinny and frail as they do. &ure they
are not fat but they have little muscle mass. 8nd the less muscle:mass you have,
the smaller engine you have to burn fat. %ecause remember, muscle burns fat.
There is one very popular Kcurly hairedL proponent of aerobics that has been on
tv a long time. He has lost weight but even after years and years of aerobics, he
still looks fat.
Here is why I think he still looks fat. ne; it is likely that he has not added interval
training or weight training to his routine. Therefore, he is not building muscle
&econdly, he probably is not getting enough calories or on a low protein diet. 8s
you know, protein is vital to building lean muscle.
8part from loss of muscle mass, research has also linked long endurance cardio
with a decrease in libido, maBor illnesses and shorter life span. &o which type of
exercise is the best for fat;
Bands down, the single !est e:ercises $or $at loss is short duration high
intensity burst exercises, aka interval training. That is to say, you alternate
between high intensity and lower intensity exercises or rest.
Eat For A Ried Body ! htt "##Burnthe$at%&mroveMetabolism%com#
Kickbutt Metabolism - The Truth About Permanent Fat Loss 25
0our body?s hormones respond best to this type of exercise. High intensity
exercises increase growth hormones, promote muscle growth and reduces fat
Sust have a look at sprinters. They are built, strong and have endurance. This is
partly because they utiliCe high intensity, short burst exercises to build
acceleration and speed. )onse>uently, their bodies produce more growth
hormones which contributes to lean muscle mass.
7uring high intensity exercises, your body burns more carbohydrates for energy
but this is Bust the tip of the iceberg. 8fter you finish high intensity exercises, your
body switches to burning fat for fuel, sometimes for up to 21 hours afterward.
8erobics or cardio won?t give you that duration of after:burn unless you are doing
long duration cardio such as running marathons.
High intensity training has other benefits too such as it improves good
cholesterol, sex drive, memory and bone density.
"esistanceG+eight Training
!irst, let me tackle the myth that weight training is the best for losing fat. It is not.
I can see why people believe this to be true because when they look at body
builders H they see guys with massive muscles and very little body fat.
%ut unless you are a genetic freak or on steroids Dwhich many body builders are
on by the wayE, it is gonna take you about 1 months or more to add -:*5 pounds
of muscle on your frame.
Those -:*5 pounds will up your %," by about *55:.55 calories daily which
results in about 5.- pounds extra per week in fat burning. %asically, this means
that muscle gains help you burn more fat at rest. %ut muscle building is a slow
way to burn fat.
This is why you need to add interval training into the mix. .or ma:imum $at

Chapter 10 0 #he Dangers o$ +ver, 7:ercising
In life, we always have to prevent extremes, donFt we; +hen the weather is cold,
we have to bundle up enough to stay warm. %ut if we put on too many clothes we
might feel too hot or find it difficult to move around.
&imilarly, extremes should be avoided when you do exercises. +hen you have
dropped a lot of fat and more or less achieved your overall weight, you might be
so enchanted with your new body that you start to over:train.
%ut recogniCe that not only is there no need to over:exercise but you can actually
end up damaging your body.
ThatFs because the process of exercising generates free radicals H and over:
exercising produces even more. !ree radicals are linked with faster aging, heart
disease, inflammation, cancer and other degenerative diseases.
&cientists figured this out in the *945s when suddenly there were a lot of long
distance runners, supposedly in the best cardiovascular shape possible, were
being diagnosed with incurable diseases like cancer. &cientists concluded from
their tests that exercise caused an excess of free radicals, which in turn led to
If these people had consumed enough antioxidants in their diets, vitamin 8, #, ),
7 and A, they perhaps could have protected their bodies from free radical
damage. This is one reason why it is essential to eat a balanced diet plus take a
potent antioxidant supplement that >uenches free radicals. #specially if you are
exercising on a regular basis, getting ade>uate antioxidants is crucial.
How do you determine if you are exercising too hard; There are a couple of
things to look at.
!irst : check your heart rate. If your heart rate is racing in the morning before you
get out of bed, youFre exercising too hard. If your heart rate is *5 beatsGminute
higher than your usual resting pulse it could mean that you are exercising too
+hen you see that your heart rate is - beats too high, do something to slow
down your exercise. 7onFt wait until your heart rate hits *5 beats higher.
+hat should your resting heart rate be; Normal heart rate beats between -5 :
*55 beats per minute. If youFre a conditioned athlete, you may already know that
your resting heart rate is much lower than that H and may even be in the (5s.
If youFre out of shape, your resting heart rate is most likely closer to 3. beats per
minute or higher. However, the good news is that as you exercise and get fitter,
you?ll see improvements in your resting heart rate. +hat started out as 3. beats

becoming more and more heart healthyT
ther signs of over exercising include insomnia, fatigue, moodiness, nagging and
muscle aches.
How to 7etermine 0our Heart "ate
ItFs a good idea to own a heart rate monitor or at the least a watch with a second
timer. If your watch has a second timer, you can easily calculate your heart beat
either at resting or during exercise.
To do this, simply take your middle finger of your right hand and run the pad of
the fingertip up the middle of your neck Dthis is the area of your voiceboxE. 0ouFll
notice that at the top of this area there is a little fatty mass.
If you turn your hand slightly so that your palm points upward and your finger is
on that fatty little area, there you will find your pulse. It will be beating strongly.
Now look at your watch. +hen the second hand hits *., start counting those
heartbeats. &top counting when the second hand hits 2. Now take the number of
beats you counted and multiply the number by (. That is your heart rate.

The easiest way to get the process going is to drink Y cup D( oC.E of aloe vera

of thick oatmeal and has a pleasant taste. 0ou can flavor it with cinnamon if you

They can affect your health andGor pack on the pounds.
+ith so many diets out there to choose from, you really do need a discerning eye
to discriminate them and choose a good one. )hoosing a fad diet or a diet not
based on a good, strong foundation and scientific principles can set you back six
months or greater, or worse yet, it can damage your health.
This bonus section outlines some of the foods you should stay away from. 6ay
attention to reasons why eating these foods are not advisable to those you want
to lose fat. @se these reasons as a guideline for analyCing other foods you plan
on eating.
1. 9opcorn.

6opcorn can potentially be a good food. Here are the conditions<
\ If you make it at home
\ If you spend the time to make it with an air popper
\ If you donFt add butter and more than a few shakes of salt
\ If you only eat *:*G. cups total.
If you really want the pleasure of eating popcorn, can you follow all these
guidelines; The problem with microwaveable popcorn is that it blows all your
hard:earned weight loss efforts for at least three days because of the sodium and
fat content.
The sodium added to microwaveable popcorn is far too high for any human to
consumeT $ess than 255 mg sodium per serving is the upper limit if you are
health:conscious; one bag of microwaveable popcorn could contain *-55 mg
sodium or more.
The problem is that salt loves to attract water once inside your body and
complexes with it. &hifts in the water balance in the body occurs and then you
end up retaining water, your face looks puffy, your clothes donFt fit as well, and
some people will have ankle swelling as a result. ver half the population is
estimated to be salt:sensitive and susceptible to high blood pressure as well.
That water that complexes with salt in the popcorn was supposed to be used in
the process of breaking down fat in your diet and now the water is unavailable for
weight loss. Not goodT
No matter what, choosing popcorn is a losing proposition H and itFs not weight
loss that weFre talking aboutT

lining of the popcorn bags are linked to thyroid dysfunction, infertility, cancer and
other maBor health issues. 8nd as you know from the list in chapter *, a thyroid
dysfunction will significantly slow down weight loss.
2. 5ice Caes
"ice cakes look innocuous to some unsuspecting dieters but they can be
downright dangerous when consumed on a regular basis. These abominations of
the food industry are made of puffed rice. The process of puffing the rice subBects
the rice granules to such high heat that chemical changes are created in the
)hemicals called Kadvanced glycation end productsL are created during
processing which rapidly accelerate any diabetes complications, arthritis
destruction of your Boints, hardening of the arteries, heart disease, and cancer
progression in your body. 8nd if you donFt have any of these degenerative
diseases, then look out H they can be on the way when you eat rice cakes
"ice cakes are also rated high on the /lycemic Index, which means that they will
cause a much greater release of insulin than what your body can handle. This
ties in with weight gain H because insulin will cause a shift in the bodyFs
metabolism to store fat for at least the next *4 hours.
&o if you are are unhappy with the speed of your weight loss efforts and rice
cakes are part of your diet, then it is time to stop eating them.
2. Gasmine 5ice
Sasmine rice looks appetiCing enough when itFs served during a meal with plenty
of vegetables and chicken cooked in a wok. %ut the truth is that this white rice
isnFt so pure and wholesome as some people believe.
"ated on the /lycemic Index with a number greater than *55, Basmine rice
causes an insulin burst from the pancreas greater than some of sugar:filled
XdessertF drinks that are loaded with calories and fat.
8nd as you already know, anything that is that high on the /lycemic Index is full
of the potential to cause damage in the body that is long:lasting.

+hatever an animal or fish eats or is fed, ends up in us if we eat that animal or
fish. The industry of fish farming is not currently looking out for your welfare when
they feed their fish antibiotics, 6)%s, 77T, dioxin, carcinogens, hydrolyCed
chicken feathers, soy and chicken litter.
)hemicals and pesticides are stored in fat cells and they make weight loss more
difficult because the breakdown of fat will release these chemicals and
pesticides. ThatFs part of the reason why some dieters get headaches and feel
lousy when they are losing weight.
&witch to the real, wild:caught fish. "ead the labels carefully H most of the shrimp
on the market is now farmed fish. Tilapia is, too.
8. #una
Tuna may taste great and itFs included on many different diets but stay clear of
this fish. Tuna is one of the primary fish in the oceans that accumulates mercury
and thereFs plenty of mercury in the seas and oceans nowadays.
8ny potentially toxic element is a haCard to your weight loss when it accumulates
in your body. ThatFs because the more that accumulates, the more that the toxic
element interferes with functioning of that cell.
,ercury will accumulate in fat cells, and when youFre on a diet, the fat cells that
are being burned up have to give up their toxins. That means they release them
to the blood where they circulate through the body. Hopefully your liver is strong
enough to handle the toxic metal dumping into the bloodstream] but if not, youFll

,any diets tell you to use broth, meaning the hydrolyCed protein broth cubes that
are generally high in sodium and filled with artificial preservatives. ,ake your
own broth by adding a little extra water to the pots you cook chicken, turkey, beef
or pork in. &ave the homemade broth by freeCing it H it will be free of excess

metabolic byproducts that are far worse than free radicalsT
A. Yogurt
0ogurt has been touted so much as a healthy food that almost every diet
includes it. However, itFs the original form of yogurt H wholesome milk with
lactobacillus culture added to it that is the healthy food H not the concoctions that
we find in many grocery stores.
If you look at the ingredient label, you will find all sorts of additives that are
