Studies surprisingly show that an increased intake of dietary fat leads to an increased breakdown of subcutaneous fat, but only if no carbohydrates are consumed. Another important indicator in these studies is that no muscle tissue is lost. The process goes on for 5 – 6 days until the body slows down the metabolism.
A diet with plenty of kilo-calories, fat and protein, and zero carbohydrates?
You may have heard of something like that before. Yes, that’s right, Dr. Atkins’ diet. He was an American who claimed to have helped 10 million in the USA lose weight. The kilo-calories from fat and protein often exceed the maintenance range in this kind of diet and yet these people lose weight. How does that happen?
In order to break down each food component – protein, fat, and carbohydrates – the body prepares one or more specific enzymes. Always as much as required at the moment. In this case, body fat is recruited as a source of energy through the same enzyme that breaks down the fat consumed from food. When this fact is understood, it will become clear why a low-fat diet makes it difficult to lose weight, if maintained for a longer period of time. When larger amounts of dietary fat are consumed, more enzymes for breaking down body fat are also provided.
MCT – synthetic triglycerides – are the most readily available form in the energy supply process in the body of all fats. Take 8 – 10 ml at every meal on low carbohydrate days.
Other fats, whether from plant or animal sources, do not supply the body with energy directly because of the number of processes they have to go through before they are used as a source of energy.
If you use anabolic steroids, you know your liver functions are impeded and you quite likely have high cholesterol levels in your blood. To improve the functioning of your liver and lower your cholesterol levels, you should use L-glutamine, L-carnitine, taurine, lecithin, MCT, choline, and inositol, as well as various mono- and polyunsaturated fats.
