Exercise Versus Diet: The Truth About Weight Loss
When it comes to slimming down, which one matters more—exercise or diet? Sadly, most people have it all wrong.
There is a diet for every minute of the day, and a gym on every street corner, yet every year our waistlines are getting thicker and thicker. In fact, 40 percent of Americans are clinically obese. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why?
Our metabolic health is in a crisis thanks to the Keto and Paleo craze, and these diets are damaging our metabolisms. It's important to understand how our metabolism works and address the underlying issues first, in order to lose weight.
What are these “metabolic issues” that are preventing us from losing weight?
- High or erratic blood sugar levels
- Elevated cortisol levels caused by stress
- High cholesterol and triglycerides
Addressing these health issues through a metabolic diet and the smart use of specific supplements is like flipping the weight loss switch to "on."
On the Metabolic Lose 1 Pound Per Day System, I suggest, everyone can lose one pound per day, and it also prevents weight gain. If losing one pound daily is too much, just replace one meal daily instead of two. It all starts with your first sip of coffee and how you drink it. This can either make or break your metabolism.
If you're using cream, butter, or any type of milk for that matter, you turn your weight loss switch to "off." But, if you swap out that over-processed milk (including soy, almond, or coconut milk) for Melt Fat Milk (get the recipe here) you can boost your metabolic rate 25 percent, making it easier to lose weight.
