Hi, the post was very informative and interesting…
I will share my tips on weight loss. High-protein low carbohydrate diets are an excellent way to lose weight. Most of us consume far too much or the wrong types of carbohydrates and not enough protein. The end result is that we have become predominantly a sugar (aka carbohydrates) burning race. Our body uses three main sources of energy, fats, carbohydrates and protein. If you are consuming lots of carbs then your body will tell itself to use that as its main energy source as out of the three it finds this easiest to draw its energy from. The end result is that your metabolic rate will slow down and burn less body fat at rest, and fat loss becomes more difficult.
