Are you a carb-burner or a fat-burner? (how to create a fat-adapted metabolism)

How do you know if you're a carb-burner or a fat-burner?

And what is a carb-burner?

Well, a carb-burner is someone whose broken metabolism forces them to eat constantly (usually craving starchy carbs and/or sugar), robs them of energy, ages them prematurely and dulls their mind.

The BIG problem is that almost EVERYONE eating a modern diet is a carb-burner!  Especially considering that the government has promoted a diet ridiculously high in carbohydrates at 50-60% of total calorie intake, so the masses heed this erroneous advice and destroy their metabolisms.

How do you know if YOU are a carb-burner?  Well...

- If you skip breakfast, you CRASH...
- If you don't snack, you get GRUMPY and maybe even "hangry" (aka, hungry + angry)
- If you don't eat carbs every couple hours...your thinking SLOWS and you have no energy...
- And come late afternoon? You barely have enough energy to drag yourself home from work.

Fortunately, there's a SIMPLE fix for this.

Using this nifty metabolic "bio-hack", you can develop what is known as a "fat-adapted" metabolism.  This type of super-metabolism allows you to tap into body fat STORED on your belly, hips and butt for energy... instead of it just sitting there useless, taunting you every day as it swells bigger and bigger.

This metabolic adaptation also can allow you to skip breakfast without craving carbs, allows you to snack if you want to (not because you are forced to), eat tons of fat-laden "forbidden" foods and power through your day with limitless energy, a focused mind and a fantastic mood.

How is this possible?

Well, as a carb-burner, you rely on a VERY limited supply of "carb energy":

- 1,600 calories in muscles (glycogen)
- 400 calories in liver (glycogen)
- 100 calories in blood (glucose)

But those calories stored in your muscles are OFF limits unless you are exercising intensely, so that leaves just 500 calories for normal day-to-day activity before you are forced to refuel (eat more carbs).

No wonder you get SO hungry, SO fast after wolfing down your favorite bagel or so-called "healthy" bran muffin!

Not only that, but forcing your body to utilize fat for energy provides stable energy and balanced hormones as opposed to the VERY unstable energy of a carb-burner and that totally out-of-whack hormones that occur in people that are carb-burners.

What is it like on a daily basis when you are fat-adapted?

The average person has about 135,000 calories stored as body fat -- that's 270 times MORE "fat energy" than those 500 calories of stored "carb energy".

So what do you think happens when you are able to tap into that gigantic tank of energy that's conveniently parked on your belly, hips, thighs, arms and butt?

Well, those who have become fat-adapted know exactly what it's like...

And it's something they'll NEVER give up...EVER.

- They wake up refreshed after deep, restful sleep...
- They don't "need" to eat breakfast if they don't want to...
- For lunch, they GORGE on delicious fat-rich foods...
- Afternoon arrives and their mind is STILL sharp and energy levels are very stable without the crashes and dips of a carb-based metabolism...
- Come evening, there's NO energy crash and their mood is fantastic...

And those frequent doctor's visits, medications and surgeries? Well, they are a thing of the past.

The best part? They simply can't get over how that stubborn fat they THOUGHT would never go away, just steadily disappears, day after day, month after month.  In fact, the biggest problem they have is buying new clothes and getting rings and watches resized!

So what IS this bio-hack that allows you to become fat-adapted?

Well, the first step is all explained here in this detailed blueprint on this next page

P.S. One of the other really cool things about becoming fat-adapted is that your monthly grocery bill get sliced by 30-40% or more. That can be several hundred bucks per month!  Here's how you can do it:

Ingredient #1: A Magnificent Metabolic Booster...

Ever wonder why the Japanese live so long and are so slender?   It's green tea, but NOT the normal kind -- it's a super-potent form called Matcha, found ONLY in Japan, that's got 3x the antioxidant power.

Importantly, it's got 137 times MORE of the antioxidant EGCG, which improves virtually EVERY part of your metabolism -- accelerating body fat breakdown, preventing fat accumulation and speeding up metabolism itself.

Ingredient #2: The World's Most Powerful Antioxidant...

This metabolic rock star is what gives chocolate its melt-in-your mouth, satisfying quality.  Infused with relaxing minerals like magnesium and potassium, cacao butter ALSO has the antioxidants epicatechin and resveratrol that cools the inflammation that makes you fat, especially around your belly.

Ingredient #3: A Potent Blood Sugar Blocker...

Want to add a little Christmas deliciousness to your morning metabolic boost?  Just add some cinnamon -- a powerful blood sugar reducer that LOWERS insulin, your #1 fat-MAKING hormone.

Cinnamon's power comes from, MCHP a compound that mimics insulin, meaning less insulin is needed and less fat making happens!  It also lowers "bad" cholesterol (LDL) while having no effect on good (HDL) cholesterol.

Protect yourself from mercury in fish with this nutrient

You've probably heard many times about the potentially harmful quantities of mercury in some types of fish.  Fish that are highest on the food chain accumulate the most mercury in their tissues, such as shark, swordfish, marlin, tilefish, etc.

That's why most health authorities warn of eating high mercury types of fish more than once a month or so.  Mercury toxicity is thought to cause many health problems over time if we eat too much of these types of fish.

However, I learned something interesting recently that I have to give credit to expert health author, Chris Kresser... Chris pointed out some very interesting research that shows that selenium basically protects your body from mercury toxicity.  Essentially, if the food is higher in selenium than mercury, the selenium binds to the mercury and therefore doesn't allow the mercury to bind to tissues in your body, such as the brain.

According to University of North Dakota researcher Nicholas Ralston, if the fish you eat contains more selenium than mercury, this selenium will basically protect your body from absorbing the mercury and you don't have to worry.

So the question remaining is...

Which types of fish contain more mercury than selenium, so we know to avoid those?

According to the Western Pacific Fishery Council, "regardless of the amount of mercury in fish, if the selenium level is higher, the fish is safe to eat".  The main types of fish that contain MORE mercury than selenium are some types of shark, pilot whale, tarpon, marlin, and swordfish.  Most other ocean fish contain more selenium than mercury and therefore offer a level of protection to you against the mercury contained in them.

What about freshwater fish?

Again, I have to thank health author Chris Kresser for digging up this research, but according to a study conducted by the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) and the EPA, approximately 97% of freshwater fish from lakes, streams, and rivers in the western US are safe to eat in terms of mercury to selenium ratio.

Now keep in mind that PCBs and other chemicals may still be an issue with some types of fish in localized polluted rivers or lakes. This varies widely based on how clean each water body is in different areas.  Local health authorities would have information on the safety of eating fish caught in local rivers and lakes in terms of PCBs and other pollutants.

However, this isn't the whole story just yet...

We still need to discuss issues with fish oil, the omega 3 vs 6 topic, farmed fish, and a few other issues.  The video below is a MUST-watch and discusses several important things:

1.  Issues with the fish oil that you might be taking currently.  It turns out that many fish oils you buy have become rancid and can actually CAUSE inflammation in your body instead of fighting it.  You'll see how to avoid these harmful fish oils.
2.  It will discuss the 5 WORST cooking oils that are actually harming your skin, joints, organs and causing runaway inflammation throughout your body.
3.  It will discuss several other issues with certain types of fish and what you need to look out for.
4.  Powerful tips to FIGHT inflammation in your body with specific nutrients

Never eat this type of fish (plus the type of fish oil CAUSING inflammation in your body)
