Losing Body Fat
are many ways to lose body fat:
8-10 Cups Of Water Per Day
Drink 8-10 cups of water per day. Water helps to keep you feeling full, keeps your muscles hydrated, and also readily moves toxins through your body to be eliminated.
Within Your Calorie Limit
within your calorie limit.
This ensures that your body will not store the excess as body
fat, because your specific metabolism, can and will, only
burn a certain amount of calories. So if you consume more
than your metabolism can burn off as energy, your body will
store that excess as body fat.
means to feed your body healthy whole foods so that it performs
at its ultimate level. Healthy
would be considered: Meats,
chicken, fish, eggs, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
You want to choose foods that are going to give you the most
amount of nutrients, for the least amount of calories.
You want to get “the biggest bang for your buck”,
per se. For example, an egg vs. a slice of cheese: both contain
7 grams of protein, but an egg has only 55 calories vs. a
slice of cheese has 100 calories. Another example would be
romaine lettuce, as opposed to iceberg lettuce. They both
do contain around the same 20 calories per cup, but romaine
has many more nutrients than iceberg. Remember, you want to

They all are
very refined, processed, high in sugar and calories, but low
in nutrients. I personally, also, consider pastas, potatoes,
bread, rice and cereals to be in the “empty calories”
They each have minute amounts of protein and nutrients, and
the body breaks them down so quickly to sugar, that I try
to avoid all of them.
Not Eat To Stuff Yourself
not eat to stuff yourself.
When you have nourished your body with the proper amount of
calories needed, put down your fork.
If you consume excess
calories than your body can use, your
body will store them as body fat.
Every 3 Hours
every 3 hours to keep your metabolism turned on.
When your body is digesting, absorbing, and processing the
food, it is creating body heat, while doing work and
burning more calories.
5 6 Small Meals Per Day
5 6 small meals per day
so that steady flows of nutrients are always feeding your
muscles, and the rest of your body. Also, when you consume
meals, your body
can utilize all the nutrients and
off the small amount of calories you have just provided,
as opposed to 3 larger meals, where your body can not possibly
burn off all of the calories that you have just supplied at
that sitting. So, any excess of those three large meals will
be stored away.
Not Skip Meals, Especially Breakfast
not skip any meals, especially breakfast.
While you are sleeping, your body slows down all metabolic

You want to tell your body that you are awake, and to start

if you are going to consume
carbohydrates, eat them earlier in the day so that your body
has more time to burn them off.
Also, do not eat heavy meals or excess calories before resting
or going to bed. You want to have time to burn off any calories
that you have consumed. You do not want to store any body
Your Muscles Protein Every 3 Hours
your muscles protein every 3 hours.
Being that the more muscle mass you have, the higher your
metabolism, we do not want to lose any precious muscle, whatsoever.
Everyone does have lean muscle tissue, whether they work out
or not, and we want to
that lean muscle tissue,
that we do have. Consuming
couple of hours spares your lean muscle tissue.
Because if you do not supply your body with enough protein,
your body will actually tear down your lean muscle tissue
into amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) for other
needed building and repairing processes in the body. The body
needs amino acids. So,
if you do not supply these needed amino acids, by way of protein,
often enough, your body will get them itself, from your precious
STARBODIES Whey to MUSCLE Protein Shakes make it so easy to meet your protein needs and still stay within your calorie requirements.
Each shake supplies you with 44grams of protein per serving, 200 calories, and only 2 carbs. Just mix with water and drink. It’s as easy as that!
I always start each day with a STARBODIES Whey to MUSCLE Protein Shake and a tablespoon of flax seed oil mixed in my blender.
That way, I get my flax seed oil in for the day, as well as having my protein for breakfast. Then, throughout the day,
I choose quality lean proteins for my meals, and supplement my diet with one other STARBODIES Protein Shake.
can’t say enough about meeting your protein requirements
to feed those fabulous muscles.
Body Fat Of Simple Carbs
your body fat by not consuming simple carbohydrates.
simple carbohydrates are consumed, the body breaks them down
very simply and easily to glucose (sugar). Then the blood
sugar rises, which triggers the hormone, insulin, to be released
to take up the excess sugar in the bloodstream. The body has
something with this excess, so it stores it as body fat.
that there are only three
for the body to choose from; carbohydrates,
proteins, and fats,
if you do not supply your body with any simple carbohydrates,
it will then use proteins to build and repair, and the fat
for the energy. When
the body breaks down and uses body fat for energy,
this is called ketosis.
Fiber Supplementation To Your Diet
fiber supplementation to your diet. Fiber
helps to regulate your blood sugar and insulin levels. Fiber
is not digested or metabolized by the body, so when it is
combined with a food that is more of a simple carbohydrate,
helps keep your blood sugar stable
longer, so the body will use that food for energy, rather
than store it as fat. Again, remember, this simple carb will
break down to sugar very simply in the body…..blood
sugar will rise……. insulin will be released
to take up the sugar, and………store it
Good Fats So Body Releases Body Fat
your good fats so that your body releases body fat.
When low-fat diets are consumed, the body thinks it’s
in a famine and protects itself by not releasing any body fat.
It’s a survival mechanism. But
when good fats, like flax seed oil,
are taken, the body detects that good fats are flowing in, so
makes it easier for the body to release the bad fat
that the body has been storing.
Weight Training To Gain Lean Muscle Tissue
resistance (weight) training to gain lean muscle tissue.
This is where the “Use It or Lose It Principle”
comes in. Atrophy
is the loss of muscle tissue from disuse.
your muscles are not stimulated with some type of resistance
training, you will lose

Interval Cardiovascular Training
interval cardiovascular training,
which are short
explosive bursts of energy.
Such training is alternated between high and low intervals,
for short periods of time. Quick explosive training,
recruits more muscle fibers to
help your muscles
adapt to the stresses that they are under, which in turn,
helps them grow.
long distance training, tears down (and wastes) your lean
for your energy supply, to complete the enduring cardiovascular
