Markus Rothkranz: Losing Fat By Using Fat

Some people believe that jogging and exercise will burn fat, and while most of the time it can help, Markus Rothkranz explains why it’s not the best or easiest way to burn fat. He has seen people jogging late in the afternoon for years. These people think that they are working off the fat that they have, but they really aren’t. They are working off their lunch, the drinks that they’ve had during the day and the snacks that they’ve had in the afternoon. The body has three sources of energy. The first is food and always will be food. It takes about five to six hours for food to get through the body. Most people eat every few hours, which is too much. When you eat too much, the food doesn’t get used for energy and is turned into fat.

Once food is turned into fat, it’s hard to get rid of as fat is the emergency food supply. It’s what the body turns to in an emergency situation when the body doesn’t have a substantial amount of food at one time. Glycogen is another source of energy. This doesn’t get used up a lot. The key to losing weight and fat, you need to exercise on an empty stomach because after at least 8 hours, the body has no choice but to use stored fat for energy. The fat will get burned off, and you’ll begin to lose weight. As long as you have fat, the body can survive as long as you have water and a few nutrients for survival. The only way to lose fat is if the body has nothing else to use as energy, not by just exercising.

General Mills Getting Rid Of Artificial Colors

Some great news is coming for all of the people out there who enjoy a big bowl of cereal for breakfast. The General Mills company has decided that they will no longer be having additives to their products and they are getting rid of all the artificial colors and flavors from their cereals. For cereals such as Trix, there will be an exchange of the dyes used in them to be replaced with natural coloring foods like fruit or other spices to get the job done. According to an article found on reddit and written by Eater, General Mills will be working extra hard to get all of this done by the end of the 2016 calendar year. It will be tough but I am pretty sure that they can do it, too.

After all this is a great motion that they are becoming a part of as many companies and restaurants are fighting against using fake ingredients for things. It should be an improvement for sure to see all of this happening and taking place within the food industry of the United States. Hopefully it will cut down on unhealthy habits and even make us feel more energetic and ready to conquer the day. Christian Broda also said that it is going to be a great thing that they are doing this and even if it takes some adjustment to the new flavors, in the long run it is for the better.
