I eat lots of protein, slow burning carbs, and I STILL can't lose weight, even with a 6 day a week exercise routine. Do I have insulin resistance?

I eat lots of protein, slow burning carbs, and I STILL can't lose weight, even with a 6 day a week exercise routine.  Do I have insulin resistance?

Weight loss: Exercise may build muscle, which can add to weight, even though you are more trim. However, most of us eat more than we think, and exercise less than we think. Recommend getting a fitbit or equivalent and use not only the exercise features, but the calorie/food counting features. If you tally up all your food every day, you may have some surprises. ...Read more

How does burning carbs while exercising work?

How does burning carbs while exercising work?

Like running yr car: Running your car engine requires gas (or electricity etc) and running your body requires fuel too--it uses mainly sugar(glucose). Carbohydrates and proteins you consume are converted to glucose which fuels your body. The faster u run or heavier you lift will burn more glucose. So, that is the basic of how exercises help burn off your carbs. So eat well and exercise more! good luck. ...Read more

If the body burns carbs first then dose that mean even if i reach calorie deficit i still wont be burning be burning fat?

If the body burns carbs first then dose that mean even if i reach calorie deficit i still wont be burning be burning fat?

It's more complex...: The human body likes to use glucose (a sugar, thus a carb), which comes from the food in the stomach & small intestine, and from the liver (where glucose is stored in a starch form called glycogen). As long as one is not eating enough to supply glucose to his cells, his liver will run low on glucose/glycogen, and his body will burn other fuels like fat (and even protein) to keep his cells working. ...Read more

No, life is not...: The answer is no. Life is not black and white, but rather an infinite number of shades of grey (or gray). See, even the spelling of grey (or gray) is not in black and white. Life's biological processes are all happening at the same time, so carbs / proteins / fats are all being metabolized in the body while a person is alive, but the rates or amounts of each type of "fuel" metabolism differ. ...Read more

How many calories of fat vs carbs and protein can I burn during a 600 calorie burning session during biking?

How many calories of fat vs carbs and protein can I burn during a 600 calorie burning session during biking?

Burning carbs-fat-pr: Seriously, this concept is butchered by personal trainers. Consider it 100% fat. Yes, you'll burn carbs (glycogen) along with fat but you'll replace the glycogen over 24 hrs. If you don't load up on carbohydrates you'll manage to keep blood sugar and Insulin levels low. Therefore, you'll be replacing glycogen by burning more fat. Avoid sweets and starches to do this successfully. ...Read more
