Fat Loss Studies Reveal Crucial Component for Losing Fat

Components Crucial to Weight Loss Many fat loss studies have been conducted through the decades. Most recently, blueberries have been found to help with increasing fat oxidation rates. Exercise is a proven treatment for obesity through the years without much debate. There is some confusion and debate with the amount of fat lost when it comes to the macronutrient's fat, protein, and carbohydrates when compared with one another.  Exercise Exercising produces the hormone irisin, which burns the white fat cells that store fat, and creates brown fat cells that keep burning calories after your done exercising, and according to Dr. Komaroff of Harvard Health, "We already have a proven treatment that profoundly protects our health: exercise" (Publishing, Harvard Health).

Macronutrients are crucial nutrients for your body to absorb. They are used for the storage of fats, energy for your muscles, helps children to develop properly, balances out your fluids, immune system, hormones, and used to form RNA, DNA, and ATP. 3 Essential Macronutrients Your body utilizes three essential macronutrients in large amounts - fat, proteins, and carbohydrates - for your body to function properly by using their amino acids, and fatty acids, and to provide the body with energy (Streit).  Fat Fats store fat soluble vitamins and nutrients inside the liver and fatty tissues and contain essential fatty acids such as cholesterol, and triglycerides, to help keep your body warm and protect organs (Dutchen). Triglycerides are packaged into chylomicrons for transport through the bloodstream, activating lipoprotein lipase once they reach fat and muscle tissues, which means they break them down to be absorbed by muscles for energy and fat for storage (Biointeractive).

Boost Metabolism Without Reducing Calories

Eat Healthy Without Worrying About Calories Metabolism is more about energy than weight loss. Usually, articles and other materials for boosting your metabolism are related to weight loss. It is true that metabolism has to do with burning calories, but obese people usually have a high natural basal metabolic rate. Metabolism is more about the energy it receives from your diet and how it is disbursed throughout your body for vital functions.  Calorie Restrictions is Bad Calorie restrictions and rapid weight loss makes it increasingly difficult to lose more weight as it disrupts your basal metabolic rate (BMR) by slowing it down; a faster BMR burns more calories at rest, but it does not necessarily lead to weight loss because obese people usually have higher BMR's naturally (Cleveland Clinic). Metabolism is Not About Weight Loss or Gain Research has shown that people who consumed more of their daily calories as protein, had a higher metabolic rate (Olsen). You gain weight by taking i
