In a nutshell, every time you eat, your pancreas releases insulin which acts like a taxi and transports the glucose released from food to where it needs to be. Some of it is used for immediate energy, some goes to the liver for later use and some goes to muscles and other body tissues. Now if you have well trained muscles, they will be very effective in receiving these calories, because they need them for energy, however if you are a couch potatio and can’t spell the word ‘lady push-up’ the chances are those extra calories from food will be stored as fat.
Bottom line – get up and start flexing those guns. That’s one of the reasons why athletes can ‘eat what they want’
The metabolic balance plan helps to keep your insulin and blood sugar in tight rein, prevents dips, cravings and excess consumption of food therefore less fat storage.
How hard are your muscles working?
