Are your eating yourself Fat...

Many people want to lose body fat simply so they look good, however, having a high percentage of body fat is known to be one of the most serious causes of ill health. Elevated fat mass also increases the frequency of muscular aches and pains and reduces energy production causing fatigue.


Excess body fat is undoubtedly one of the biggest health threats facing both us and our children’s lives. The good news is that losing even a small amount of body fat (as little as 10%) can reduce your chances of developing numerous diseases.


Switching on Fat Burning
Your body has three main sources of energy. It can burn fat, glucose (carbohydrate), or protein. When we burn fat, we produce substances called ketones. These are produced normally, and when we measure these ketones in our urine, we know we are burning fat efficiently.


High levels of dietary carbohydrates, also known as high glycaemic load foods (e.g. sugars and starchy foods such as bread, rice, pasta and potatoes), work with the hormone insulin to “switch off” fat burning and increase fat gain
When your body’s blood sugar and insulin levels are low enough you will switch to a higher level of fat burning. This is the secret to KetoSlim. To burn fat you need to restrict high glycaemic load foods to a level where your body will produce less of the hormone insulin thereby increase the rate of fat burning. Eating less food is not the answer; you need to specifically reduce the high glycaemic index, carbohydrate-rich foods in order to “switch on” fat burning.
