Key Concept #3: Your Body Prefers Burning Fat Over Carbohydrates - Mark Sisson - @ThePrimalBlueprint
Did you know?
We’ve evolved to be fat-burners (must be why we’re so adept at storing it on our bodies!). It’s easy to see why.
Fat burns slow and evenly, providing all-day steady energy levels.
Carbohydrates burn quickly, and they’re gone in an instant, leaving you groggy and depleted unless you “carb up.” Furthermore, carbohydrates are an inherently unreliable and fleeting source of energy for our body, with most people only able to store about 400-500 grams of carbohydrates on the body at any one time.
Our storage capacity for fat, on the other hand, is virtually endless. Just ten or fifteen pounds of body fat, which is the bare minimum available on even the leanest individuals, can provide tens of thousands of calories.
Luckily, reducing carbohydrates and increasing fat intake sends the epigenetic signals necessary to help us revert back to fat-burning, and it only takes a week or two to get things moving in the right direction.
Become fat-adapted, enjoy boundless energy. Free yourself from the shackles of a carbohydrate-based metabolism/dependency.
Every small change WILL become a
big difference in your life.
