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.
