The holiday season is upon us and we are all surrounded by those yummy treats that we all like so much. The problem with these yummy treats is they are loaded with SUGAR! Sugar is the body’s preferred source of energy, hence the body loves to store sugar for later energy needs and the storage depot is your body fat. Storing fat on the body is a natural survival process. Your body is ensuring that you will have energy for later use. The problem arises when you don’t burn up that extra energy and continue to store more and more and more fat and then you wake up one day and you have 50 extra pounds hanging on your body.
Most people at this point will employ two strategies, one, eat less or better or, two, begin to exercise to burn off the fat. Both strategies will work but are hard to employ and results can be slow to achieve. Therefore to combat the battle of the bulge we offer the Ideal Protein weight loss program in our office. Ideal protein is a high protein, low carb, muscle sparring, fat targeting, weight loss program developed for athletes over 25 years ago.
Most weight loss diets or work out regimens are happy to see you lose weight, but what if that weight is not just fat but also muscle. Muscle is the fat burning engine of the body. If you loss muscle then you won’t have the capability to burn as much fat.
Ideal protein is specifically designed to spare your lean muscle mass and target only your stored fat. Then when your weight is off you still have your fat burning engine revved up and the fat stays off. Call our office and sign up to come to our ideal protein class to learn more now! (480) 892-0022.
