The key to health is eliminating toxicities and deficiencies! - Dr. William R. Kellas

Healthy Habit # 1 — Keep Your Body in the Fat Burning Mode

Your Body is Like a Car or Household Appliance

It Needs Maintenance


If you could only have one car or one particular household appliance to last your entire lifetime, what good maintenance practices would you establish to make it last your whole life? More importantly, with the one and only body you will ever have, what maintenance practices are you implementing so that your body will stay optimally healthy through a long life?

Six Habits of Health

  1. Maintain a Fat Burning Mode
  2. Detoxify Continuously
  3. Have No Nutrient Deficiencies
  4. Keep Cellular Oxygen and Hydrogen High
  5. Maintain an Optimal Daily Schedule of Sleep and Activity
  6. Stimulate DNA Repair and Survival Mechanisms


Keep Your Body in the Fat Burning Mode — So That Your Mitochondria Last Much Longer!

over voltage

Why is the fat burning mode important? Because generally speaking, everything lasts longer at low entropy (IE, cool temperatures), and we want our human body to last a long time.

  1. Have you ever run a 110-volt-rated household appliance on 150 volt electricity instead of 110 volts?
  2. If you did that, you saw your appliance heat up way too much and, if you did if for very long, burn out too soon.
  3. Just like you would not want to run appliances at an over‑voltage, and "hotter than need be", you don't want to run your cells "hotter than need be", IE with excessive free radicals, because if you do that their lifespan will be reduced.
  4. There is one particular habit that reduces free radical damage more than anything else, and it's not part of most people's strategic thinking — namely, FAT BURNING!

Quintillions of free radicals are created in human cellular mitochondria when fuel (either fat or sugar) is metabolized (burned) to create energy. Far fewer free radicals, however, are created when fat is burned and not sugar.

  • Free radical creation, coincident to metabolism (creation of energy from fuel), is unavoidable. And the more free radicals that are created during cellular metabolism, the more damage to one's mitochondria and cells that will occur. In point of fact, far more free radical damage in the body results from free radicals created internally during metabolism than results from free radicals coming from outside the body, such as smog, industrial pollutants, and other toxic chemicals.
  • Human mitochondria can burn either fat or sugar to make energy, however, burning sugar generates many more free radicals (twice as many) as does burning fat. More free radicals means the mitochondria run "hotter" and receive more damage. So, burning sugar in the mitochondria is like running an appliance at a higher voltage — not good to do for long periods of time.
  • Unfortunately, most people in our modern era primarily burn sugar to make energy. To live as long and healthy as possible, you need to do the opposite, IE, you need to ensure that your cells burn fat to make energy.

According to Dr. Ron Rosedale click to read his bio:

"If I were to summarize in a single sentence what practice would best promote health, it would be this:

Health and life span are determined by the proportion of fat versus sugar people burn in their cells throughout their lifetime.

The more fat that one burns as fuel, the healthier a person will be, and the more likely he or she will live a long time.

The more sugar a person burns, the more disease ridden and the shorter a life span a person is likely to have."


Take Away: You will live longer and healthier if you ensure that your cellular mitochondria are predominantly burning fat, instead of burning sugar to make energy. Unfortunately, most people live virtually continuously in a sugar burning mode and by doing so, needlessly throw away significant potential (decades) for a longer and healthier life.


How You Can Ensure Fat Burning in Your Mitochondria

The primary cause of being in the sugar burning mode is a lifestyle that allows one's Leptin levels to rise too high. And, since most people don't know what is Leptin, they don't comprehend how they are undermining their health and lifespan, nor how to change directions.

Learn more about the impact of elevated Leptin level on metabolic mode, healthy, and longevity, and how to restore healthy Leptin levels by clicking below:

The major cause of having a sugar burning metabolism (that creates excessive amounts of damaging free radicals and other life-shortening problems) is having broken Leptin receptors in the Hypothalamus:

leptin to hypothalamus

Leptin is a chemical messenger that is made in fat cells. It circulates in the blood. Receptors in the Hypothalamus sense Leptin as blood moves past the Hypothalamus. How much Leptin is sensed by the Hypothalamus is the primary driver for whether our bodies burn fat or sugar. How this works is described below.

Leptin sensory receptors in the Hypothalmus drive a metabolic mode "switch". This switch can be in one of two positions: fat burning or sugar burning

If the Leptin receptors can sense plenty of Leptin, then the Hypothalamus metabolic switch will be set for fat burning. Otherwise, if Leptin is not perceived (by Leptin receptors) as being plentiful, then the swtich will be set to sugar burning, and the cells of one's body will be instructed to burn sugar and store fat. The Hypothalamic Leptin Metabolic Mode Switch operates as follows:

Just the Right Amount of Leptin = Fat Burning Mode

If no Leptin being sensed by the Hypothalamus, then one's body will be set to the sugar burning mode.

  1. Because Leptin is made in fat, the more fat that exists in one's body the more Leptin that will get made and will circulate in the blood. The amount of Leptin circulating in the blood stream will be approximately proportional to the amount of body fat a person has. The total number of Leptin molecules will be sensed by the Hypothalamus (gland in the brain).
  2. Since the amount of Leptin reflects the amount of stored fat in the body, when the Hypothalamus senses plenty of Leptin in the bloodstream, the Hypothalamus takes that to mean that a famine or illness is NOT OCCURRING, and “feels” no urgency or need to conserve fat and, therefore, signals for the body’s cells to burn fat.
  3. Conversely, if not very much Leptin is detected in the bloodstream the Hypothalamus takes that to mean that a famine or illness is occurring. The Hypothalamus will then panic and will send out the signal to all the mitochondria of the body to conserve and build up fat and to ONLY burn sugar in order to outlast the famine or illness.
  4. The Hypothalamus will continuously send signals to the cells of the body to burn sugar until the Hypothalamus can detect sufficient Leptin, meaning that fat stores have been built up enough so that the Hypothalamus believes the famine or illness is over.
  5. The above signaling switch in the Hypothalamus is a very powerful survival mechanism for ensuring that a person's body always has enough fat storage to survive a long enough period of time to outlast a famine or illness.
  6. The caveat is that Leptin signaling switch can malfunction, with insidious consequences.
  1. How the Hypothalamic Leptin switch "breaks" is normally the result of a gradual buildup of adipose fat. For instance, if a person consistently eats more food calories than he or she burns off in physical labor, then fat stores will build up until reaching the point where Leptin levels are so high that they damage the Hypothalamus's Leptin receptors. IE, when too much Leptin exists in the bloodstream, one's Hypothalamus's Leptin receptors will become desensitized to Leptin.

    This is similar to how strong smells that continue for a long time will desensitize smell sensors in the nose. In much the same way, if Leptin levels are really high too long they will overstimulate Leptin receptors in the Hypothalmus. And Hypothalamus receptors will stop detecting Leptin meaning that the Hypothalamus will measure Leptin levels as being zero, even though Leptin levels may actually be very high. When the Hypotthalamus believes that there is no Leptin in the bloodstream, then the Hypothalamus will panic and signal for the body to burn sugar even though fat stores and Leptin levels are very high. The switch for burning sugar gets turned on and won't go off.

  2. So, once a person accumulates an amount of body fat that is high enough to continuously keep Leptin levels high (and thereby continuously desensitize the Hypothalamus to Leptin), it will become very difficult to ever go back to the fat burning mode. It's almost like one is then sentenced by nature to always be in the sugar burner mode and to always try to store every incoming calorie as fat.

    And then by constantly being in the sugar burning, one's health is going to be damaged much faster because of excessive free radical production. If that weren't enough, eventually one's body will become insulin resistant (meaning the cells will stop responding to the signal to make more more fat). At that point, blood sugar will rise and glycation damage (proteins cross-linking with sugar) will start to become an even bigger problem than free radical damage.

    Being in the sugar burning mode has become the GREATEST MODERN CAUSE of chronic illness and early death.

Working with the Human Body's Leptin Management System

Leptin can be too much, just right, or too little. Learning to keep it just right is really important.

OK, we understand that Leptin has to be within an optimum range for the body to burn fat. But, what is that optimum range?

leptin level meter

Too Much Leptin

  • A serum Leptin level that is above 9.0 ng/ml (top red area of "Leptin Meter") corresponds to a Leptin Insensitive Hypothalamus.
    • A Leptin insensitive Hypothalamus believes the person is starving to death and will send signals to the cells for sugar burning to occur and fat to be conserved.
    • In other words, the Hypothalamus will act just as if there were a real famine.
    • A Leptin insensitive hypothalamus means that your body has so much Leptin circulating in the blood that the Leptin receptors in the Hypothalamus have become insensitive to Leptin and can no longer measure the Leptin level.
    • In this mode, one can have hundreds of pounds of fat and huge amounts of Leptin and the Hypothalamus will still think Leptin is zero.
    So, when someone is in the high Leptin range, his or her body will try to increase fat storage even though fat storage is already too high. In this mode, the cells of the body will eventually become insulin resistant and blood sugar will eventually rise. In this mode it will be very difficult to lose weight nor matter how little food one eats because the "Hypothalamus" is trying to turn every incoming calorie into fat.

Just the Right Amount of Leptin

  • A serum Leptin level that is between 4.0 ng/ml and 9.0 ng/ml (green middle area of “Leptin Meter” corresponds to "no famine mode" or the desirable (and very healthy) fat burning, high energy mode, and less production of free radicals.
    • With Leptin in this range, the Hypothalamus is not concerned about conserving energy and burns fat freely. In this mode, you are more likely to not gain fat because your body’s cells will be burning fat to meet their energy needs.
    • In this mode your cells will experience far less free radical damage, meaning that your cells and tissues will stay healthier, longer.
    This is where you always want to be because your cellular mitochondria can age decades more slowly.

Too Little Leptin

  • A serum Leptin level that is less than 4.0 ng/ ml (bottom red area of “Leptin Meter”) corresponds to a famine or illness mode.
    • This could, however, just be the result of someone who is purposively reducing fat for a body building contest.
    • Whatever the reason for too little fat, the Hypothalamus will instigate a sugar burning, fat conserving mode.
    • That is because when Leptin is too low (under 4 ng/ml) the Hypothalamus believes that you have too little fat in your body for your own good, and that it must stop fat burning and signal for sugar burning so that you can survive the famine or illness you are in.
    • So, it sends signals to the body to conserve and try to build up more fat. It also tries to lower your metabolic set-point in order to to store every incoming calorie as fat.
    This is a very good thing if you’re trying to survive a real famine (or illness).

Salient Fact to Take Away

When the Hypothalamus cannot sense an adequate amount of Lepin in the bloodstream, either because there really isn't very much Leptin or because its Leptin receptors have become desensitized by the presence of too much Leptin, the Hypothalamus panics and commands the body to try to burn sugar and store fat. While burning sugar, one is growing old and diseased twice as fast because twice as many free radicals are being generated compared to if one's cells were burning fat.


  • Learning how to keep your Hypothalamus sensitive to Leptin and your Leptin level optimal is one of those practices that ACTUALLY drives long term health! Understanding and managing Leptin, which is really understanding and managing fat, is getting at the roots of health.

Getting and keeping Leptin levels in normal range is our number one Habit of Health.

Start by knowing where your Leptin level currently is!

You can get a blood test for Leptin (from your Doctor) in order to know where you are currently in terms of Leptin level.

Or, since Leptin is made in body fat which means the more body fat you have the more Leptin your body makes, you can estimate your Leptin level by simply looking at the fat percentage chart to see where your body fat most likely is, and if your Leptin level is in the the fat burning mode or not. Please note that women make about 15 percent more Leptin in their fat cells than do men, since women's hormonal processes are different. This means that women's fat burning responses are different, take longer, and must be sustained longer.

Once you get your Leptin blood test results (or make an estimate based on body fat percentage), you will know where you are at. You can then choose to adjust your life-style and/or diet to get your Leptin level into the fat burning range.

Remember Leptin is made in fat cells and that means that a main driver of Leptin level is the amount of body fat one has. So, scientifically speaking, in order to stay in the fat burning mode and live the healthiest and longest life possible, it will be essential to get and keep your body fat percentage in an optimal range.

Body Fat Corresponds to Leptin

If your body fat percentage is not in the optimal range for fat burning, then you need to learn and carry out the tactics for temporarily normalizing Leptin levels while you make permanent changes that will allow you keep your Leptin level in the fat burning range permanently, for the rest of your life.

As described in the previous tab, you know you are in a sugar burning Leptin range if your Leptin level is 9 ng/ml or greater or if your body fat level places you above the fat burning range (shown in the picture in the preceding section).

If you're in a sugar burning Leptin range, then you also know that your body's cells are being damaged faster than they should be (because your cells will be generating twice as many free radicals as they could and should).

If nothing changes your metabolic mode back to fat burning, the unhappy reality is that cellular damage will occur much faster than might have been. Consquently, you will experience disease and death much sooner than could have been.

That should be an incentive to take action. But, unless you know what to do, it is very unlikely that you will be to get your body back into the fat burning mode. So, learn the fat burning tactics described on this page.

It is possible to stop being a sugar burner if you follow the below tactics.

But, this is only possible if if you take decisive, correct action to change your metabolic mode permanently back to fat burning. That's what you now need to learn.

  1. The first thing to understand is that Leptin can beremoved from the blood stream during sleep.
  2. The second thing to understand is that low blood sugar can significantly reduce the production rate of Leptin in fat cells.
  3. The third thing to understand is that damaged Leptin receptors in the Hypothalamus can be repaired.
  4. A fourth thing to understand is that specific types of exercise can temporarily trigger fat burning regardless of all other factors.
  5. Finally, the presence of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone (normally released during pregnancy) overrides Leptin signaling and causes fat burning to occur, regardless of any other factor.

Using those five facts or tactics for overriding damaged Leptin receptors in the Hypothalamus, you can get your body back into fat burning.

So, we will teach you how to get your Hypothalamus and the cells of your body back to a fat burning mode and how to burn through excessive fat stores until you have the right amount of fat on your body to permanently maintain the fat burning metabolic mode.


# 1: Leptin can be cleared from the bloodstream each night so that one starts the day with low Leptin levels. What helps Leptin to clear includes:

  • 7 to 9 hours of restful sleep.
  • No food in stomach for three hours prior to sleeping.
  • Low blood sugar during the night (see below).

Getting more precise:

  1. Little sleep equals less time to remove Leptin from the bloodstream during sleep and, therefore, higher Leptin levels in the morning. So, sleep 7 plus hours each day.
  2. Little sleep equals very little repair of the endocrine system, including the Hypothalamus's Lepti receptors. So, sleep 7 plus hours each day.
  3. If blood sugar is high during the night, Leptin production will continue all night and won't be low in the morning. Unfortunately, most people's sugar rises during the night. So, learn to eat in a way that keeps your blood sugar low during the night.

# 2: The amount of sugar in the blood stream significantly changes the rate of Leptin production of Leptin in fat cells.

  • There is much more Leptin production with high blood sugar.
  • There is much less Leptin production with low blood sugar.

Getting more precise:

  1. Keeping blood sugar below 90 will significantly reduces Leptin production.
  2. Blood sugar that is between 90 to 105 will not increase or decrease Leptin production.
  3. The more that blood sugar is above 105 the more that Leptin production will be increased.

To keep blood sugar low, we recommend eating low glycemic foods and eating nutrient-dense food.


If you understood the above, then you will realize that the quintessential secret for lowering Leptin production temporarily (so that you can get Leptin level low enough to get back into a fat burning metabolic mode) is to keep your blood sugar low. Tactics for keeping blood sugar low, then, are what you want to learn!

Significant, prolonged exercise forces fat burning to occur.

  • After about 45 minutes of exercise, blood sugar is depleted and fat burning mode commences regardless of Leptin level and continues for an hour or two.

Stress hormones (adrenaline, cortisol) force sugar burning to occur.

  • Sugar burns faster than fat. If there is an emergency, nature wants a person to have “instant” energy. That’s why, when your stress level (adrenaline and cortisol) goes up, your body prepares for fight or flight, and you start burning sugar. So, if you can't manage stress, then it will be difficult to stay in the fat burning mode regardless of Leptin level since the stress hormones will keep pushing the body into sugar burning mode.

Elevated Leptin

Pain and Stress

Inadequate Sleep

Excessive Dietary Protein

When trying to predict metabolic mode a few additional factors, other than body fat percentage, come into play:

Pregnancy hormones override Leptin switching of metabolic mode and force fat burning to occur.

  • Nature does this to ensure a more constant energy supply to the fetus regardless of whether there happens to be a real famine going on and whether the mother is able to eat adequate amounts of food or not. Nature loves babies and rearranges a mother's metabolism to make sure the baby does well. This is the secret behind HCG dieting.

Women's bodies produce less Leptin than do men's bodies for the same amount of body fat.

How to Ensure That You Become and Stay a Fat Burner!

If you’ve come to realize that you are currently a sugar burner and, therefore, permitting extra life-shortening damage to occur to your body, you will undoubtedly desire to get the cells of your body back into the healthy fat burning mode. Here are the things you need to do to accomplish that:

Basics for Fat Burning

  • Initially (when first changing from sugar burning back to fat burning), reduce eating sugar and carbohydrate rich foods to as close to zero as possible. Once you are solidly in the fat burning mode, you can eat carbohydrate rich foods as long as you don't go back into the sugar burning mode.
  • It is mandatory to deprive one’s cells of their “habitual sugar fuel” in order to get them to eat fat again.
    • Doing this is kind of like forcing a baby to nurse from its mother's breasts (after an interruption in nursing). The baby will fuss at first, and want the bottle (because the milk flows faster and easier). The whole household has to endure the baby's cries until the baby is hungry enough to accept what it is offered. Cells are just like babies. They want quick-to-satisfy-sugar, instead of the healthier fat.
    • What we're saying is that both cells and babies will "fight and fuss" for sugar or a bottle until they realize they don't have any other choice.
    • We suggest reading the book "the Rosedale Diet" by Dr. Ron Rosedale to learn more about the importance of the fat burning mode and his diet suggestions and recipes. Also, we recommend the WIN powdered drink mix program. It provides a very low carbohydrate nutritional powders that will help one's cells get great nutrition while encouraging the cells to burn stored fat.
  • It's important for managing Leptin levels to eat during half the day only (less than 12 hours a day) and to get adequate daily sleep so that Leptin is removed from the blood stream each night.
  • It is, also, quite important that you don’t eat food any closer than 3 hours before going to bed so that your Leptin levels do not rise while asleep. The only exception to this would be drink some herbal tea or eat a small amount of a low carb food such as an egg. If you do eat within the two hours before going to bed, you absolutely must wait at least 12 hours before eating again (this 12 hours includes the time you are asleep).

Additional Tips for Fat Burning

  • We recommend that one consume Arginine and/or Ricatein in order to help repair damaged Leptin receptors more quickly. When Leptin sensors are healed and able to sense Leptin, fat burning will occur much more readily.
  • Exercise is helpful for switching from sugar burning to fat burning since 45 minutes of vigorous exercise forces the body to switch into the fat burning for a few hours regardless of Leptin level.
  • It is helpful if the break-fast meal contain very little carbohydrate — so that the body gets the message at the beginning of the day that fat is the fuel to be burned that day. Great break-fast meal can include nutrient dense meals such as WIN meals or fat-rich meals such as bacon, avocado, cheese-egg omelets, fish, etc.
  • Excepting a few "party-time" meals per month, the meals one eats should emphasize fat, with ample amounts of low-calorie vegetables and some protein (4 to 6 ounces per meal, depending on body size). To learn to eat this way (and enjoy those meals), we recommend the book by Ron Rosedale called "The Rosedale Diet".
  • Meditation and stress management can be very important for "stressed-out-people", because if one doesn’t keep adrenaline out of his/her bloodstream he or she will be forced into a sugar burning mode regardless of Leptin levels, since Adrenaline tells the body to immediately burn sugar (to enable fight of flight).

Important Lifetime Habits For Avoiding Sugar Burning Mode:

  1. Don't eat empty calorie foods very often (such celebration foods should be reserved for real celebrations) because empty calorie foods spike blood sugar, producing more Leptin out of whatever fat exists in the body. When Leptin levels spike too high, the Hypothalamus’s Leptin receptors will be damaged and one's metabolism will switch to sugar burning and fat storing until those Leptin receptors are healed. If damaging the Leptin receptors occurs frequently, then it is only a matter of time until one VIRTUALLY ALWAYS BURNS SUGAR AND STORES FAT, and health starts to decline.
  2. Don't eat food close to bedtime. Stop three hours minimum before going to bed. Otherwise, blood sugar Leptin levels will rise all night instead of being cleared out of the blood during the fasting that occurs during sleep. One will then start then day with spiked blood sugar and spiked Leptin. Eating just before bedtime is a huge bad habit.
  3. Don't live in a state of fear, jealousy, constant "rush" or feeling of stress. These feelings can cause one to become a sugar burner because the body can’t tell the difference between these emotions and “real danger”. The release of adrenaline and cortisol switch the body into sugar burning. Sleeping earthed or meditation are two ways to combat such feelings.

What Can I Expect if My Body is in the Healthy Fat Burning Mode?

what can I expect

Being in a fat-burning body is a great situation, but isn't very common in our modern world. It means that:

  • You may likely live many years longer than most people.
  • Your brain will function better and, especially, your memory will remain sharper in your advanced years of life. This is because your brain tissue will NOT undergo excessive cross-linking with sugar (cross-linking makes your memories irretrievable). You will be much less prone to Alzheimer's and Dementia.
  • You will maintain your muscle tone and bone density years longer than most people because your body will burn fat at night while you're asleep instead of burning your muscles and bones to make energy while you're asleep.
  • You will be less likely to experience high blood sugar and its hosts of unhappy challenges — cardiovascular disease, joint stiffness, kidney disease, etc.
  • You will be less prone to addictive behavior, because your Hypothalamus will NOT be constantly stressed through fluctuating Leptin levels.
  • You will NOT be prone to weight gain.
  • You will NOT be irritable if you miss a meal because your body's cells will continue to burn fat even if your blood sugar is low.

What Can I Expect If My Body is in the Unhealthy Sugar Burning Mode?

what can I expect

Most people don't choose to be in a sugar-burning body on purpose, but nevertheless become sugar burners because of their lack of knowledge regarding how Leptin determines metabolic mode. If your body operates in the sugar burning mode, this is what you'll get:

  • You'll likely live 10 or more years less than you could have lived.
  • You'll eventually experience significant difficulty in remembering things. This is because your brain tissue will cross-link with sugar, making it impossible to retrieve your memories. You may experience Alzheimer's.
  • You'll eventually lose a great deal of your muscle tone and bone density. This happens because while you're sleeping, your body will dismantle proteins to make sugar to keep your heart beating.
  • You'll eventually experience high blood sugar and its hosts of unhappy challenges — cardiovascular disease, joint stiffness, kidney disease, etc.
  • You'll be more prone to addictive behavior, because your Hypothalamus will constantly be stressed (see below) and will seek to remedy this stress through other stimuli.
  • You'll eventually become overweight (unless you constantly diet or exercise).
  • You'll be prone to mood swings and addictive behaviors. The reason is that the Hypothalamus controls not only metabolic mode but also mood. When the Hypothalamus is unable to sense Leptin, it won’t be “relaxed” (fearing a famine) and will seek “relaxation” from other stimuli such as alcohol, drugs and sex.

In What Ways is Burning Fat Instead of Sugar Extremely Important to Having a Great Life?

# 1 — Having Cells That Burn Fat Is Important Because It Helps to Avoid Mitochondrial DestructionYou Could Be Young For Decades Longer!

  • Creating energy by burning fuel (fat or sugar) in our cellular mitochondria is necessary to life, but, also, destructive to our mitochondria. It is destructive because free-radical production occurs while creating energy. Free radicals (oxidants) do damage to our mitochondria and cells. This is very similar to how burning gasoline in an automobile engine is necessary, but destructive to the engine of the automobile (by releasing heat).
  • Fat burns more efficiently than sugar. In fact, for the same amount of free radicals released, you can get twice as much energy from fat as from sugar. That means that being in the fat burning mode instead of the sugar burning mode will "age" you much more slowly than being in the sugar burning mode. In other words, at age 70 chronologically, you can feel and look decades younger if you had been a fat burner your whole life.

# 2 — Having Cells That Burn Fat Is Important Because It Helps to Avoid Glycation DamageYou Could Avoid Alzheimer's Age Spots, and Senility!

  • Sugar burning naturally leads to high blood sugar and all of its problems, brain tissue glycation (Alzheimers and Dementia), age spots on skin, wrinkles on skin (and internal wrinkles where you can't see them on your organs), kidney disease, digestive troubles, etc. Having a healthier and younger functioning body and a life more free of pain and discomfort are two main reasons a person should want to be a fat burner. That's even more important than living longer.

# 3 — Having Cells That Burn Fat is Important Because It Helps to Avoid Mood Swings

  • When a person is in a fat burning mode, energy is constant because there is always fat available to be burned to create energy.
  • That is not the case for sugar burners. When a sugar-burner uses up all the sugar in the blood, that person will then experience a loss of energy, or a mood crisis as the body is temporarily unable to supply energy. It takes awhile for the body to access stored energy or start breaking down muscle and bone proteins to make sugar to get energy. This up and down energy creates a moody person.

Can You Boil This All Done For Me? What are the Real Keys to Creating the Kind of Life That Ensures Fat Burning

  • The main secret of the fat burning lifestyle is maintaining low low insulin, low Leptin, low stress hormones (like cortisol). Here's some keys of that life style:
    • Eat meals that don't spike blood sugar. Such meals consist mostly of healthy fats, proteins and non-starchy vegetables. Particularly, uncooked, non-starchy, non-sweet vegetables and sprouts are great to eat in virtually unlimited amounts. Also, uncooked, undamaged, mono and polyunsaturated fats can be consumed in moderate amounts. Proteins are good as long as one doesn't eat too much protein per meal (excess protein can be converted into sugar). A good rule of thumb is to divide your weight by twenty-five and limit the protein for a meal to that many ounces. For example, a 125 pound person could eat 5 ounces of protein per meal.
    • Sleep sufficiently for Leptin to be processed out of the blood each night. That means don't wake up tired. The body uses sleep to repair itself and clear Leptin from the blood.
    • Fast 12 to 16 hours daily. Having 12 to 16 hours daily of no eating time (including sleep time) helps the metabolic system repair itself. Remember, metabolism (turning food into energy) does damages to the mitochondria and cells. The metabolic system needs daily time to self-repair. 12 hours of no-eating time is doable for anyone. 16 Hours a day is even better.
    • Exercise daily. Exercise is very helpful for establishing the fat burning mode, by helping to keep blood sugar very low, which keeps Leptin production low and forces fat burning to occur. Exercise should be significant enough to promote deep breathing and should continue for 30 minutes or more in order to ensure that the body enters a fat burning mode. (When all blood sugars are used up, the body must burn fat to continue its exertions.) The graph below shows the effect of exercise duration in terms of stimulating fat burning.
    • fat burning exercise
    • Lastly, repairing damaged Hypothalamic sensors (the ones that detect Leptin) can be critical for quickly moving from sugar burning mode to fat burning mode. Two supplements that help repair these sensors include: Embla Arginine and Risotriene.
