Body Fat Loss 2018-01-24T04:21:07+00:00

The human body is a very sophisticated machine with complex and intricate bio chemical processes. Not the least of these is the consumption and utilization of the body’s biological fuel that we call food. Fat loss is determined by several factors including negative caloric balance, and types of foods ingested; when these foods are ingested, how much of them are ingested, and how and when are they utilized? These processes are dictated by thousands of years of evolution and adaptation. The human body has made these changes from the environment it has been exposed to.

 The secret of fat loss is to understand and manipulate these predetermined biological principals to our advantage. One of these predetermined biological principals is our metabolic set point. This is also known as resting metabolic rate. By changing this metabolic set point you can finally take control of your body composition and the way you look and feel. All human beings have a metabolic set point that can be changed and accelerated by the increase of skeletal muscle though the introduction of resistance training. By increasing the amount of skeletal muscle on our bodies we can increase our resting metabolic rate. For every pound of lean body weight we gain we can expect to add 50 calories per day to our resting metabolism. By adding 10 lbs of skeletal muscle we can expect to add up to 500 calories to our resting metabolic rate which amounts to 1 lb of body fat per week This figure does not factor in additional calories used during training sessions. By increasing skeletal muscle you will in turn increase the body’s ability to burn calories while doing a cardio workout as well.

 The more lean muscle that your body possesses the more energy is required to move that muscle. Increases in energy requirements cause an increase in caloric utilization from the body.
