Fat Storage: You’re a Natural!
Way back in the caveman days when our ancestors used to hunt for food and gather what they could from the ground, they never knew when their next meal would be. It wasn’t guaranteed that they would have a meal the next day so they needed a way to store energy. That stored energy was in the form of fat. Those who were most efficient at storing fat became those who were more likely to survive.
That was a long time ago and our genes are still pretty much the same as then, except there’s one problem. We have no shortage of food! We always know when our next meal is going to come, and with vending machines, convenient stores and fast food it’s likely you won’t be hungry for more than hour.
So what can you do about fighting this uphill battle?
- Eat the proper amount of food. If you stuff yourself, your body is going to store the excess calories as fat.
- Strength train. Working out will help you build muscle, which will in turn help increase your metabolism, meaning you will burn more calories even while doing nothing.
- Don’t skip meals. Eating small meals throughout the day will help keep your metabolism high and keep your fat storage relatively low.
