The Three Revelations Behind Every Fat Loss Success Story
Healthy fat cells = healthy metabolism.
That statement may be pretty surprising to some people…
But to others, it could make perfect sense.
You see, your fat cells produce some of the most sophisticated fat burning hormones known to man.
And, when you gain weight (or lose it!) then you’re in for a rollercoaster ride of EPIC proportions.
Now, diet plays a very BIG role in the health of your fat cells.
Too much sugar and you may see spikes in your belly, thigh, or even butt fat layers.
But if you eat the RIGHT foods, the RIGHT way, and perform the RIGHT exercises, then you may see those same areas shrinking, leaving tight, toned, and sexy muscle tissue in its place.
Fat Cells and Metabolism
Okay, so your fat cells may not control EVERY aspect of a healthy metabolism.
But they do produce and secrete powerful hormones that interact with the areas of your brain that may control your metabolic rate.
Although there are over 80 proteins made and secreted by your fat, there are TWO that are pretty important.
Now, when you are healthy - meaning you carry a healthy weight, have low inflammation levels, and eat right – then chances are, these two powerful hormones are rising and falling together – like they naturally should.
But when your weight starts to increase…
And your internal inflammation levels increase…
Then chances are ONE of these will RISE (no added benefit) and the other ONE will fall, leaving you fighting an uphill battle to control and regulate everything from your metabolism to blood sugar control.
So what causes weight gain?
Too much added sugar…
Too many calories in and not enough calories out…
Too much processed junk food, diet and regular soda consumption, and not enough of the RIGHT foods all contribute to the rise in your weight – as well as a rise in your internal inflammation levels.
And these contributing factors cause your adiponectin levels to fall and your Leptin levels to rise (without any added benefits), therefore throwing off your body’s ability to burn fat for energy.
Now, as a review, lower adiponectin levels may reduce insulin sensitivity, increase your risk for Type 2 Diabetes, BOOST WEIGHT GAIN, and increase inflammation in your veins, arteries, and cardiovascular system (as well as other areas).
Leptin, on the other hand, tells your body when you need to burn calories (or when you’re full). And increasing weight may easily cause
Leptin resistance (increasing leptin levels that your body does not use).
When you have resistance to leptin – although the levels are high – your brain and cells can’t use it, therefore your metabolism suffers.
So what should you do?
Regulate Your Hormones
There are THREE things you should be doing to boost your adiponectin levels, therefore reducing your weight in the process.
They are: eat more fiber, watch your calories and exercise, and omega-3 fatty acid supplementation.
Let’s take a closer look at them individually.
Fiber is important for maintaining the health of your digestive system.
And, it also may be good for boosting your adiponectin levels!
In one study, researchers studied fiber-rich cereal consumption and found that people who ate MORE fiber-rich cereal had a 24 percent increase in adiponectin levels.
And other studies show that a fiber-rich diet may increase circulating adiponectin levels anywhere between 60 and over 113 percent!
2. Omega-3 Fatty Acids
The omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, have been shown in research to reduce inflammation, cholesterol, and triglycerides while boosting overall health.
But in numerous studies, the same omega-3 fatty acids known for better heart health may also boost circulating adiponectin levels, therefore promoting better metabolic health.
One study showed that daily supplementation with the omega-3 fats, resulted in an increase in adiponectin by a whopping 14 to 60 percent.
3. Caloric Intake and Exercise
Of course, you would naturally think that a lower calorie diet and exercise would boost your overall weight and fat loss, right?
Well, now, you can add increased adiponectin levels to the list.
Common sense would say that eating less calories AND exercising would promote greater weight loss.
And that may be the exact reason why this combination works for effectively for boosting adiponectin.
In fact, this combination has been shown to boost adiponectin by 18 to 48 percent!
The Blueprint for Success
A lot of people make a BIG deal about losing weight and fat.
They may overcomplicate the matter by over-thinking and over-analyzing what they need to do in order to lose the most fat and weight possible.
By going back to the basics – eating right, exercising, and including essential fats – you may find yourself losing more fat than ever before.
As you can see from the above results, including fiber-rich foods, omega-3 fatty acids (fish or supplements), monitoring calories, and boosting exercise may all boost your adiponectin levels!
And this could lead to greater fat loss and a slimmer you in no time at all.
