For years, Markus has witnessed people jogging after work or after dinner. These people think they are burning fat, burning calories, or burning enough calories to compensate for their dinner plans. The truth is, they are not. The truth is, they are burning off what they had for lunch, their snack, the smoothie they had at work, or whatever else they ingested.
According to Markus, the body has three main sources of energy. The first one is food, which takes 5 to 6 hours for the food to process out of your system. It has been proven that people eat too much, and they eat too often. Most people eat every two to three hours, which completely defeats the purpose. All this extra food turns into fat, which is the body’s emergency power supply.
Markus also states that it is healthy to miss a meal every now and then, which is scientifically proven. By allowing your system to empty completely, the body can focus on flushing out the impurities and the toxins that have built up in your system. Which is why it is not healthy to eat all the time.
The second type of energy is glycogen. Most the population does not use their glycogen stores because they do not get up and move around enough. There are specific portions of the population that have realized the optimum time to burn off excess body weight. Body builders and professional athletes exercise in a fasting state.
This means that they wake up in the morning, and before they eat anything, they workout. This is because the body is in the perfect state to burn off the fat because there is nothing else to fuel their body.
No matter how many scientific studies you view, you will find the same result every time, when they body has nothing left to burn, it fuels itself with its fat stores. Unfortunately, if you have eaten anything or drank anything, your body would rather use the carbohydrates and sugars from those because they are easier to break down.
The moral of the story: Exercise in a fasting state so that your body has no choice but to fuel itself using the fat stores you desperately want to get rid of.
