Two Simple Ways To Turn Your Body Into A Fat-Burning Machine
#1 Become Metabolically Flexible
One of the reasons some people are always eating/hungry is because they lack METABOLIC FLEXIBILITY.
A lack of metabolic flexibility will make it difficult for your body to metabolise fat for energy efficiently. The implication of that is, your body has to always rely more on glucose (carbohydrates) to fuel cellular activities. Even though you have tons of energy stored as fat, you don't have the metabolic flexibility to access the energy. So you eat and eat and gain weight.
One's ability for metabolic flexibility is dependently on the function of the mitochondria — the powerhouse of the cells.
If your body can metabolise fat efficiency, you will have the flexibility to switch fuel sources throughout the day. What that means is you won't always be hungry (you won't get hungry as soon as your last meal disappears from your stomach). Your body will be able to switch to the fat-burning mode, instead of relying on carbohydrates at all times.
