 You might think it has all to do with what you eat. However it has nothing to do will what you eat. The culprit is how you are sleeping. Research published in the Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology( a fancy term for hormones) and Metabolism found that a lack of sleep can impact your brain in such a way that pushes you towards the pantry, not away from it.

 Eat your carbohydrates later in the evening , not first thing in the morning. We have all been told that eating our carbs early in the day because that is when we are most likely to "use" them rather store them. Otherwise called insulin sensitivity.

Avoid TRANS FATS at all cost. Eating just a tiny amount of this ingredient can increase your risk of heart disease and promote accumulation of visceral(located inside the abdominal cavity, packed between the organs ) fat – a dangerous kind of belly fat that’s almost impossible to get rid of.

 This is from 'Engineering the Alpha' by John Romaniello & Adam Bornstein. PLEASE take note. I agree with all of them. 1. Fat doesn't make you fat. It is necessary for hormonal balance. 2. Heavy weights don't make you bulky. Don't fear them, they are your friend. 3. Yoga is not for girls. 4. Muscle does not weigh more than fat. But fat does take up a lot more space than muscle.

 1. Lifting weights means you can eat more without getting fat. 2. It’s higher intensity than most cardio so raises your metabolism. This causes quicker (and longer term) fat loss. 3. Lifting weights will not make you big….cupcakes will make you big 4. lift like a man …look like a goddess

 When you diet you usually restrict your carbs, fat or both. When you really restrict your fat intake, it may lower your testosterone. Low carb diet could reduce your thyroid hormone ( you know the one that regulates your metabolism).

 Have your attention? Good. The best fat burning exercise changes from person to person. The best fat burning exercise is something you're no good at (for me it's burpees burpees) .Cause the more efficient or the easier the exercise is for you, the less fat you will burn. 30 min of treadmill walking doesn't cut it. Please try something different today Your waistline will thank you.

 Hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated oils. Otherwise known as TRANS FAT. This has been linked too heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Along with sugar it is enemy number one. These things are added to make food taste good. BEWARE!

 Weight loss and gain are driven by hormones. Insulin is the hormone you need to get under control if you want to burn fat and lose weight. Eating too many foods that break down into sugar, releases insulin into the blood, and then your fat burning ability is down the drain. You may already know this but it is good to hear it again SUGAR IS THE ENEMY! Make one simple change and your results will sky rocket.
