THE TRUTH ABOUT BURNING FAT!!!
SO, HOW DO YOU BURN FAT?
BURN MORE CALORIES THAN YOU EAT!
YEAH, BUT WHICH OF THESE DIETS WORK?
ALL DIETS WORK WHEN YOU BURN
OFF MORE THAN YOU EAT!!!!
….So, as long as you’re on a calorie-deficit…
ALL DIETS WILL WORK!!
…I know that sounds too simplified, but if your aim
is to SOLELY lose weight, then a calorie-deficit is key!
...BUT DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT....
AND LET'S NOT FORGET ABOUT MARK HAUB!!
Who's Mark Haub?
Almost every blogger out there who stresses the importance of maintaining a calorie-deficit in the hope of losing weight quotes ‘The Twinkie Diet’
(invented by Mark Haub).
This should come as no surprise since the diet basically consisted of eating predominantly junk food (with the exception of protein shakes, a few vegetables here and there and multivitamins).
So, What is The 'Twinkie Diet?'
Despite going on this crazy diet (consisting of Doritos chips, sugary cereals, oreos, and other sugar-rich processed foods), he (Mark Haub) maintained a calorie-intake of 1800 calories.
His daily calorie-expenditure was 2600 calories per day.
…10 WEEKS LATER, MARK LOST 27 POUNDS!!!
On top of that, Professor Haub also noted a reduction in his BMI (28.8 to 24.9), a drop in his ‘bad’ cholesterol (or ‘LDL’) by 20%, an increase in his ‘good’ cholesterol (or ‘HDL’) by 20%, and a reduction in his triglycerides (a form of fat) by 39%.
BY THE WAY, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, I’M NOT SAYING YOU
SHOULD GO ON ‘THE TWINKIE DIET!!!!!!!!‘
I’m just using Mark Haub’s journey as that final nail in the coffin. Calorie-in vs calorie-out takes dominance over everything else when it comes to burning off that unsightly fat….(sorry Gary Taubes ).
SO, YOU LOSE FAT WHEN YOU CUT YOUR CALORIE-INTAKE??
BUT JON, HOLD ON!!

……AND DOESN’T YOUR METABOLIC RATE DROP???????!!!!!…..
UHR, YEAH..THAT’S TRUE!!!
