What fuel are you running on?
Likely, your answer is carbs, like starches, fruit, and other sugars.
When you walk, or talk, or simply move through your daily routine, you are burning energy, and typically most people get their energy from Dietary Carbohydrates.
Much of the time, especially with the modern-day heavy-carb diet, your energy comes from carbohydrates. These are sugars and starches, which are broken down into glucose, which is then used by the body for energy.
Unfortunately, excess glucose that is not fully used as energy converts to glycogen which is then stored as fat.
"Carb overload" is believed by many experts to be the #1 cause for overweight and obesity today.
As you probably know, people living in modern countries are heavier than ever before, in the US, 1/3 of all people are obese. This can lead to the following debilitating, and in some cases deadly, conditions, and diseases:
-Heart attack and stroke
-Diabetes and high blood sugar
-Mental conditions like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's
-High blood pressure
-Inflammation throughout the body
-A lower quality of life
-A reduced sex drive and performance
-An increased risk of premature death
-Other chronic health conditions
My mission is to help you learn how to avoid these conditions while taking control of your weight.
