The Fat Burning Science

The science behind burning fat is fascinating and involves various processes in the body.

To achieve your desired physique and shed unwanted fat, it's important to understand the science behind fat metabolism, sustainable nutrition, and regular physical activity. Staying committed and patient and letting science guide you can help you become a healthier and leaner version of yourself. To better understand this science, let's review some important key points.

Visceral Fat

Visceral fat and your risk of chronic diseases.

Visceral fat, also known as intra-abdominal fat, accumulates in the abdominal cavity surrounding the internal organs. Unlike subcutaneous fat, found just beneath the skin, visceral fat is located deeper in the body and can wrap around organs such as the liver, pancreas, and intestines. Visceral fat is considered more dangerous for health compared to subcutaneous fat. It has been linked to a higher risk of various health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain cancers. It is also associated with metabolic disturbances and increased levels of inflammation in the body.

Toxins can accumulate in visceral fat.

According to scientific studies, adipose tissue is a site of toxin accumulation. The process of storing toxins in visceral fat is one mechanism the body uses to protect organs from the harmful effects of toxins. However, excessive accumulation of visceral fat can lead to a buildup of toxins, which can contribute to the development of obesity-related diseases. In contrast, subcutaneous adipose tissue (scAT), found beneath the skin, is less likely to accumulate toxic substances. Reducing visceral fat through lifestyle interventions such as regular exercise, a balanced diet, and healthy weight management can help reduce the accumulation of toxins in visceral fat and improve overall health outcomes.

Toxins in processed food can accumulate and get stored in the body fat.

Processed foods are making us sick.

When people consume processed foods that contain toxins, these harmful substances can enter the body and potentially get stored in fat tissues. When individuals lose weight or undergo metabolic processes that mobilize fat stores, these stored toxins can be released back into the bloodstream, which can harm overall health and well-being. The human body is naturally designed to remove unwanted toxins continuously. However, if the digestive system, liver, and kidneys are not functioning optimally, these toxins can severely damage your health. Therefore, it is crucial to include detoxification in any weight management program.

Not all calories are created equal.

It was previously thought that weight gain and weight loss were governed solely by the laws of thermodynamics (aka calories in vs. calories out) Emerging research seems to point otherwise; not all calories are created equal. The same 100 calories that you take in guzzling a can of soda is a lot different inside the body than 100 calories in your broccoli.  According to researchers at Tufts University, Americans consume more calories of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) than any other source.  It is practically in everything.  It increases triglycerides, boosts fat-storing hormones, and drives people to overeat and gain weight.  It is a cheap alternative to cane and beet sugar.  It is not metabolized by the liver and increases the risk for type-2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Our bodies and organs are stressed by chemicals absorbed through processed food, such as pre-packaged meals, soda, candies, cookies, potato chips, etc. 

At Pro Weight Loss, releasing toxins while losing weight is essential.

Every weight-management program should have a detoxification program. Many commercial weight loss programs do not include detoxification products. This is because they focus solely on weight loss, not overall health. Such programs often sell artificial products that can cause more harm than good and lead to further intoxication. While they claim to help you lose weight, they do not promote healthy weight loss as Pro Weight Loss would.  

If you are finding it difficult to lose weight even after maintaining a healthy diet and exercising regularly, toxins might be hindering your metabolism and fat-burning processes. Fat-soluble toxins tend to accumulate in the body when the detoxification system is clogged, which could lead to long-term problems such as weight gain, fatigue, diabetes, and more. By supporting your detoxification system, eating better, sweating more often, and stressing less, you can help eliminate the toxins that may be holding you back from reaching your top health goals.  Schedule a free phone consultation with one of our team of experts to discuss how we can assist you in your endeavor to lose weight and eliminate toxins from your body.

Weight loss can be a challenging journey, filled with ups and downs. Many struggle to find a diet that helps them shed pounds and keeps them satisfied and nourished. That’s where a nutrient-based weight loss program comes in. Unlike calorie-based diets that focus on processed food, drugs, or hormones, a nutrient-based approach emphasizes the importance of nourishing your body with the right foods to maintain a healthy weight while feeling full and satisfied.
