Types of diets that work and diets that do not

Atkins Diet, Weight Watchers Diet, Paleo Diet, Ketogenic Diet, Intermittent Fasting Diet, Vegan Diet and more… The question is any of these are going to lower our level of insulin? The answer is the ones that will going to work.

Fitness CoachSo the question is what lowers the Insulin?

Carbohydrates as you may already know, low carb diets are very healthy. When you cut the sugar out, when you cut the HIDDEN sugars out such as bread, biscuits, juices, soft drinks, alcohol, flavoured yogurts, fruits etc.
One needs to avoid combining protein with sugar. So it is a great tip that when you are in a restaurant you do not order a breaded piece of meat, sweet and sour chicken from a Chinese restaurant etc., that would greatly spike insulin way more if you eat these separated.

In my next Blog I will go through the 7 mistakes which are commonly found when someone is struggling to lose fat without success. If you avoid these mistakes you cannot fail!

What really stops you from losing weight

The Insulin Hormone. A lot of people know this as relating to diabetes, but it has another function. It is the hormone that puts fat not only on your body, but mainly on your midsection. It also prevents you from losing weight, it’s called the fat storage hormone and here is what people don’t realise…

IN THE PRESENCE OF EVEN A TINY LITTLE BIT OF INSULIN ALL FAT BURNING HORMONES ARE SHUT DOWN.

It means that even if you consume half a glass of juice, glass of wine or even a piece of fruit you will not lose weight until the next 48 hours. Having said this I am not saying one should not consume fruit. What I am saying is that when one wants to lose fat should not consume any type of sugar.

So when you see a person with belly fat you can be 100{2f30dbfe3776189acf88705bf11097058fd5359cdb1e09ff4682f12a82d16044} sure that that person has too much insulin. WHEN INSULIN GOES UP A PERSON GAINS WEIGHT – WHEN INSULIN GOES DOWN A PERSON LOSES WEIGHT. We need to create the absence of insulin to lose weight.

In my next Blog I will be discussing this in more detail!

I expect to lose weight!

“ I expect to lose weight! “ This is what a so called frustrated client told Jake, one of my Trainers, this morning…

One need to really understand that to lose weight / fat is the most unnatural thing for the body. It’s do not get fat in the first place. In know this will sound negative for you but it`s the simple truth and I am honestly not intending to portray what people do want to hear like everyone is doing out there.

Here I want to make things clear and tackle Fat Loss in real terms with a real and holistic point of view

PEOPLE DON’T LOSE WEIGHT TO GET HEALTHY. THEY HAVE TO GET HEALTHY TO LOSE WEIGHT. IT’S GET HEALTHY FIRST AND THEN LOSE THE WEIGHT SECOND. Why ? Because your weight is the symptom, it’s not the cause. It’s the symptom of an unhealthy body. Losing weight, it is actually very unnatural to the body, your body doesn’t like to lose weight. It goes against its purpose to survive. So the weight is the tip of the iceberg. The real thing is something that is making you fat.

There are two main factors happening in the body which makes you fat and these are Hormonal changes, Insulin and lack of circulation.

In the coming Blog I will be tackling these subjects into detail so as everyone out there can be aware of what is happening in his/her body.Mariano Farrugia

The good thing is that with the progress happening in the fitness industry we are very well informed how to make our body healthier and how to lose fat and keep it at bay. Sadly this is not what the social media is portraying. Fitness in general is lacking self respect through social Media. This is my point of view as it is Fitness Models showcasing their abs all year round and portraying a lot of one size fits all approaches and a lot of unspoken truth.

Think. Make good choices and then take concrete actions.

Be accountable
