In this video, I want to share with you the simplicity of why people can’t lose weight. 

Fat burning explained:

The large battery — is equivalent to fat (about 100,000 calories of potential energy)

The medium battery — is glycogen (about 1700 calories of potential energy)

The small better — is carrying around 15 calories (1 tsp. of sugar for the blood sugar to be normal)

The above are the three types of fuels that you run your body on. Wouldn’t it make sense to tap into fat? The average person rarely gets to tap into fat and lose weight simply because they don’t understand this one simple thing.

There is a switch that tells the body which fuel it’s going to burn. When you reduce insulin, you can tap into fat. 

What controls insulin?

1. The amount of carbs you consume
2. How many times you eat in general

These two things increase insulin and keep you from fat burning. An average American consumes over 250-300g of carbs per day. To burn fat, you need to reduce that number to less than 50g. 

When you chronically consume a lot of carbs, you start to develop damage to this switch. This is called insulin resistance. This makes it really hard to tap into fat even when you do things correctly. 

When you’re on the right eating plan, and you decrease your frequency of eating, it could take time to fix this switch. The key is sticking to it until the switch is fixed, so you can tap into the fat and lose weight.

The best thing to do is to focus on other indicators of health. It’s get healthy to lose weight, not lose weight to get healthy. For example, if your hunger and cravings are going down and your energy is going up, that means it’s working, and you just need to give it more time. 

To combine lowering your carbs and not eating too frequently, you need to try healthy ketosis and intermittent fasting.
