So we know that amino acids are organic compounds that serve as the building blocks for proteins. We know that some amino acids are considered “essential,” because the body cannot make them on its own. Many of us are familiar with the branched-chain amino acids, commonly referred to as BCAAs in the world of fitness and health, those precursors to proteins (a.k.a. proteinogenic amino acids), like leucine, isoleucine, and valine. But how do they help us lose fat and lean out? Continue reading Lean and Tone with Aminos
From the end of October to the end of December, the average American gains 8-10 pounds. Well, it’s no surprise when we have three holidays focused around eating within a 90-day period, or make it four holidays if you count New Year’s too! Sure, making smart food choices is always going to be helpful. Yes, going to the gym consistently can make you leaner and stronger. But what about your internal system running the whole show? If your lymphatic system or adrenal glands get burned out due to environmental stressors, poor food choices (i.e. Halloween candy), or excessive use of stimulants, your body won’t be functioning in optimal condition, and that IS going to put a hamper on your upcoming holidays.
During intense workouts, tissue can be damaged at the microlevel and the usage of fuel stores goes up dramatically. Ultimately, these strong performances can push us to higher levels of leaner, meaner muscle, but in the short-term, some repair is necessary.
If you just can’t seem to lose those last 10-15 pounds or you have hit a plateau in your weight loss goals, it may be time to clean things up.
When our bodies absorb toxins, they coat them in fat to prevent them from causing harm to our system. As a self-defense mechanism, the body will not allow the fat that protects itself from the toxin to be removed. For if the fat is removed, the toxins are allowed to freely cause harm or illness to our body. How to fix this? Remove the toxins.
There are several great ways to get the toxins out of those fatty pockets. And once those fatty pockets are toxin-free, the body will let go of them, thereby resulting in weight loss! Continue reading Spring Cleaning from the Inside-Out!
