Working at different intensities of exercise determines whether one is burning more carbohydrates or fats as fuel. Higher intensities use mainly carbs, while lower and more prolonged intensity training makes use of fats.

Brown fat actually helps you burn fat!
Unlike the well known white adipose tissue, brown adipose is actually metabolically active, helping to shuttle and use fats as fuel as supposed to being stored in the body.
Hey y'all, I’m back from my honeymoon! Getting back into a post-vacation keto routine definitely requires good vibes and a crazy straw.
I made a rocket fuel latte for brunch, then made a delicious broccoli and bacon salad for dinner, with chicken, cheese, sunflower seeds, and Tessemae’s creamy ranch 😍
I’ll try to post some honeymoon pics soon - we had quite the adventure!
I haven’t tracked food in a long time. Today tracking helped me reduce my unconscious eating, it made me ask myself if I was actually hungry before putting something in my mouth. Need to tweak my macros, but kept carbs low and calories too. I need to drink more water also, but it’s a start.
With my food intake. For years I have tracked my intake on MFP, I have followed the boards and they always recommended that you set your Physical activity to Sedentary. With my Height of 5′2 and my weight, it sets me at 1200 calories. I went with that a long time. I did lose about 13 or 14 pounds using this method…
So in the beginning I was only considering being skinny. I didn’t think of anything else, I just wanted to be thin.
Now I am obsessed about being lean and strong.
I am upping my calories to over 1400 Calories. Trying to figure out how to eat more of healthier foods and protein.
So sitting here on call trying to make out my own meal plan for myself…
What is some of your go to staples? Looking for some new food ideas, I get so bored so quickly!
