Does Your Body Burn Muscle or Fat First?

Author: Ben Lewis (Admin)
Bio: Simply awesome!

I heard from a few people that your body burns muscle tissue before fat. That didn’t really make sense nor did it encourage me to want to work out.
It didn’t make sense to me that as a person uses their muscles, such as when they are lifting weights, they are at the same time losing
muscle. So I did a little research online and came to a common answer.

Fact: Your body can burn both muscle and fat.

Fact: Your body burns protein first. I think this is where people get confused. Just because your body burns protein first does not mean
that the protein is coming from your muscles. But since we think of meat (muscle) as protein, we automatically think if our body burns protein first
that must mean it’s burning muscle. Not so.

Here’s how it works in brief – I’ll link you to one of the articles I found so you can read further.

Your body cannot store protein so the first thing it burns is protein found in it various forms. Any protein that is not burned off as energy gets
discarded through the elimination organs (colon, bladder, skin, lungs, etc). The next thing that gets converted to energy is simple and complex
carbohydrates in the form of glycogen. Then comes the fat, and lastly muscle tissue.

So there you have it. The answer to the question “Does your body burn muscle or fat first?” is, your body burns fat first.

Here’s the article I promised you: Fat Or Muscle – Which Does The Body Burn First?

Bio: Super mom!

TidBit: You have to have energy to burn energy!

TidBit: To lose weight its 30% exercise and 70% diet.

TidBit: Drink a glass of water before every meal it will make you feel more full so you eat more correct proportions.

TidBit: Consistancy counts! it takes 4 weeks for you to notice your body changing 8 weeks for your friends to notice and 12 weeks
for the rest of people!

TidBit: But the best tip of all is, don’t quit! Make small goals to get you to your main goal. If you want to lose 50 lbs make a goal
of 10lbs a month or whatever works for you, then when you reach that goal make another small one. But don’t lose sight of the overall goal.
If your goal is to run a marathon take it a mile at a time. Run 1 mile for 2 weeks then the next 2 week run 2 miles. Find something that
keeps you motivated, take a picture of it, and put it somewhere you look at often.
