In this episode I discuss an important concept for weight-loss called the oxidative priority. Our body uses different foods – differently. Protein is used as building blocks for the body, whereas carbohydrates and fats are used as energy.
If you want to tap into burning your own body-fat for energy, it’s important to keep the amount of energy available in your bloodstream low. Because carbs are used before fat, controlling your carb intake is important for weight-loss. When you eat more carbs than your body can use, these get converted to triglycerides (fat) in your liver and are transported via the bloodstream to your fat stores. High levels of glucose from carbs and fats from carbs in the bloodstream prevents you from burning your body fat.
