We’ve covered the role of carbs, fats and proteins, and hinted at how carbs and fats are used as a fuel. Starting a transformation program is an exciting time to kick start your fat loss and crush your health and fitness goals! We want to keep things simple so you can focus on working hard, and not getting lost in the weeds of all this sciency stuff.

A simple breakdown that will give you structure, but not overwhelm
Your body is like a factory, and the more you workout the more employees you hire to run things. When you eat food, it’s like boxes coming in on the conveyor belt for those employees to assign throughout your body. If you have enough employees to manage these boxes, they’ll be put it to use and everything will work well. If you don’t exercise often, then those boxes will stack up and be put in storage.
It takes time for your body to interpret your new fitness changes, which means it takes time to hire on these new employees in your factory. The reason we work out, isn’t for instant results – it’s to develop a more efficient system in your body to handle the income of carbs and fats, so they’re put to use more efficiently.
