Eating does not make you fat!

My previous blog entries were touching on a bit on the science of losing weight. On how drinking sufficient water ensures that your body works to turn your stored fat into energy. For today's blog, I am touching on how eating food does not make you fat.

Well the truth is eating food does not make you fat. In fact, eating more than 3 meals a day helps you to reduce weight. Hard to believe? Well here is the science part; your brain releases fat burning hormones, and these are released after each meal you eat.

So what does make you fat?

You don't get fat because of a lack of exercising, that's a myth.
You get fat because you're eating the wrong foods, the wrong types of calories per meal, and you're also eating meals in the wrong patterns each day.

So eating less is not the answer, neither is jogging everyday when the food you eat isn't the right food to induce your brain to burn fat.

On the next few blog entry I will begin to touch on proper nutrition and what foods you should eat and avoid. Also, demystifying some myths and facts about certain foods and eating habits.
