✅ Your muscles are your body’s largest 𝘨𝘭𝘶𝘤𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘬 and what keep you 𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘶𝘭𝘪𝘯 𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦, which is what u wanna be.⁣

🧽 Think of your muscles like a 𝘴𝘱𝘰𝘯𝘨𝘦. The bigger and drier it is the more liquid it can absorb. ⁣

⁣🏋🏻 Exercise and restricting the time spent eating in a day, together make your muscles insulin sensitive and this big, dry sponge that is ready to absorb the glucose coming its way by way of carbs consumed from 𝘣𝘭𝘰𝘰𝘥𝘴𝘶𝘨𝘢𝘳 produced.⁣

💗 The bigger and more healthy your muscles, the more carbs you can digest and burn vs those same carbs being stored as fat instead.⁣

🤓 Choosing a diet that is low carb or low fat really doesn’t make a difference when it comes down to losing weight and body fat — AS LONG AS CALORIES AND PROTEIN are controlled.⁣⁣⁣⁣

🤩 Going low carb or low fat is thus totally a personal decision and taste. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣🧐 You have to choose the type of restriction that works best for you and that which you can sustain and be consistent with in the long-term.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣🤨 However, frequency of eating matters when you are lower carb or lower fat because of the anabolic response caused by insulin release. ⁣⁣⁣⁣

⁣⁣⁣⁣💪🏼 Your body can get away with a lot more if you have lean muscle mass.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

🚴🏻‍♀️ Aerobic exercise is any activity that gets your blood pumping and large muscle groups working.⁣

💗 This makes your heart work harder, pumping blood through your body more quickly. One of the benefits this consistent circulation has on your body is providing more oxygen to your muscles. Supplying more oxygen to your body simply makes it better functioning.⁣
