Thiel: Depriving your body of sugar or fat not healthy recipe

If you’re consistent in what you eat your body will become used to it and will act accordingly.

Think of your body as you would a child. When raising a child and giving that child the best possible opportunities, the key is consistency.

If you’re consistent in what you eat your body will become used to it and  will act accordingly.

If you want to scare a child or give them poor direction be inconsistent in the way you treat that child. The puts them in a state of fear, not knowing what they should and should not do.

And of course, in proper child rearing, there has to be proper planning and preparation.

The same can be said for the way you eat, the way you sleep, the way you relieve your stress and the way you that you live.

This is a very logical approach at optimizing your health, immune system, energy and optimal function.

Before we begin, let’s blow some of the most common misconceptions about dieting clean out of the water.

If I want to burn fat or lose fat, I must reduce the fat in my diet if not remove it altogether. Studies have demonstrated clearly that in order to burn fat you must eat fat.

For instance, if your body is not getting enough fact from your diet it will make it. Or, whatever food you give it, even in limited ratios the body will turn into fact.

You need fat. The adult brain is made of over 60 per cent fat, the child’s brain is over 80 per cent fat. To reduce fat is nothing short of insane.

If I reduce calories, I’ll lose weight. Moderation is key. If you reduce your calories to the point that your body is a state of stress your body will go into the default mode of survival.

Physiologically speaking this means that your body is in survival mode and any calories that it gets it will turn into a readily accessible low metabolically required storage of energy we call fat.

But what happened once you stopped your restrictive diet? Its called ‘yo-yo dieting.’ The weight came on faster than you lost it.

Sugar substitutes are great aid is losing weight. Unless you’re a diabetic, this is not true. Recent studies have demonstrated that sugar substitutes actually make you gain weight rather than lose it.

And there are some preliminary reports that clearly demonstrate that some forms of sugar substitutes are directly linked to degenerative brain disease. Your body has a pathway that burns sugar as fuel. It works and it works great.

If you’re not convinced yet let me ask you question. Our brain uses a fuel know and that fuel is called sugar. So save the artificial sweeteners for the in-laws.

I really need to eat no more than three times a day. Your body works best what you have four to six meals a day. This is what is called grazing.

Now I’m not talking about four to six meals and turkey potatoes salad.

I’m talking about keeping your body in that state and not a stress state.  These are the most common misconceptions that leads people astray.
