Burn Stubborn Fat | How to Remove Cellulite
Ok, let’s get to today’s eye opening article from Sue Heintze that’s all about learning how to control your adrenoreceptors.
Below, Sue does a fantastic job of simplifying a very complex subject.
Adrenoreceptors: Your KEY to Burn Stubborn Fat for a “Dimple-Free” Body? By Sue Heintze
As women, in the fight against stubborn fat and cellulite, we are behind the 8 ball from the get-go.
Women’s bodies were made with procreation in mind and one of the reasons fat
is believed to be preferentially stored in these areas is for breastfeeding.
We’re built under the assumption that at some point we’ll be responsible for
another little human being; thus we are genetically programmed to have a
backup supply of fat so we can care for our offspring in times of famine.
So, as you can see it’s nature at work.
When women lose fat, typically we lose it from our upper body first. It doesn’t matter that we may have a lot more fat down below; our body will always take the fat from our upper body first.
That’s the pattern of fat loss for most women, and as frustrating as that is, unfortunately we can’t change that.
Yeah I know – bugger.
So, stubborn fat is doubly difficult – it is stored easily, yet is extremely hard to shift once it is stored. Let’s see why…
Adrenoreceptors are found in all body fat cells; and these adrenoreceptors are able to trigger changes within the fat cell.
They control fat cell metabolism as well as blood flow into and out of the fat cell.
Body fat contains two types of adrenoreceptors – beta and alpha. In basic terms, beta-receptors promote fat metabolism and alpha-receptors block fat metabolism.
Continuing in very basic terms, in the game of fat loss, beta-receptors are good, and alpha-receptors are bad to burn stubborn fat
According to research, lower body fat has been found to carry as much as 9 times more of the bad receptors than the good receptors.
This doesn’t paint a pretty picture.
So, if we move on to the process of actually losing body fat (normal or stubborn) first it requires us to mobilize the fat out of the actual cell and into the blood stream.
Lack of blood flow to stubborn areas makes it even more difficult to mobilize the fat out of the cell. If you have this sort of fat, you probably notice that it often feels cold compared to other parts of your body.
To Burn Stubborn fat circulation is a big factor.
We mobilize fat with high intensity exercise. This also has the added fat-burning effect of lowering insulin levels (the presence of insulin inhibits fat mobilization) so you’re getting a double whammy in favor of fat-loss here.
Second, the fat has to be burned off once it’s escaped from that darned cell.
If it has not, it can simply be shuttled right back into the fat cell again!
During high intensity training you are using mostly carbohydrates for energy as opposed to fat.
Essentially what these workouts do is prime your body for fat-loss by releasing fatty acids from the cells as well as raise your metabolism and fat burning ability for up to 38 hours following your workout (as a result of Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption or EPOC for short).
Research indicates there is a big surge of fatty acid release into the blood stream, minutes after completing a high intensity exercise session.
In other words, to burn stubborn fat you have to engage in high intensity exercise
– your fat has just become ready for step 2 – fat burning!
And most programs NEGLECT this essential step!
I’m sure you’ve heard the ‘fat burning zone’ poo poo’d of late.
However, in light of the above points, you shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss strategically placed, steady state cardio sessions in your attack on cellulite and stubborn fat.
If you neglect this second step, then you are missing out on the ability to truly obliterate troublesome stubborn fat.
And don’t forget – to get that beautiful firm, shapely, toned figure you still need to build or at least maintain your muscle mass so some heavier sculpting workouts are NECESSARY.
As you can see from reading this article Sue wrote, she and I REALLY do have a lot in common.
I’ve preached this type of training for targeting lower belly bulge and stubborn abdominal fat for the last 3 years straight.
And now Sue has mastered the process so YOU can burn stubborn fat (cellulite) too.
So whether you jump on this program or not….
…Do me a big favor will ya?
It will help you. I promise.
And best of all, it uses the power of FRUIT to help you burn more fat.
That’s right. Eating MORE of your favorite fruits can help you manipulate insulin to bust through ANY plateau.
You just have to be “smart” about it:
Keep going strong,
