arms race within your body lol as its last to go, but with some Keys2Fitness tips the advantage will be on our side, read on. You think with that info on how calories work/burn up, that training and exercising would expend the most calories.....sitting down? Maybe 30% of your daily intake !! Tip#1; always do weight bearing exercises first to deplete the body of its 1st energy source, glucose (carbs), then do cardio to use your secondary fuel, which is fat!! So then the other 60% is used for daily living and keeping your motor running (all your internal organs, replacing cells, transporting oxygen etc), this is why you must bring in a certain amount of calories to maintain or the brain will ramp down and hold onto all you eat as it doesn't care what your doing, it wants to live!! How much?....usually around 10 calories per ideal bodyweight. ie. 200lb man= 2000 calories per day Tip#2; "X" Factor, for every lb of muscle that you keep and maintain an additional 50c is needed, see why i preach the importance of weight bearing exercises? Its to stoke the internal fires and to keep the body humming along. Tip#3 ; the last 10% of the equation is digestion so eating the proper foods is important, for example the efficiently rate is different for each group....carbs and fat use under 10 calories for breaking down itself where protein needs 20-30 calories, so numbers don't lie, if you want to lose lbs have protein with every meal, plus it helps grow and repair your muscles. Tip#4; carbs look for fibrous (fruit/veggies) as they don't breakdown as quickly into glucose also (veggies/whole grains) tends to block the absorption of other calories. Tip#5;
