Thanks for the great tips!
This article generally has very good info. However two (related) things specifically stand out as questionable. Understand that we (on this board) are FAT or we wouldn't be here. Because we are FAT, we almost certainly have a carbohydrate intolerance, and an insulin intolerance. Given that, the advice for FAT people trying to exercise is different from the advice for LEAN people trying to exercise. The advice of this article is a one size fits all and is more aimed towards the lean people, i.e. not us!
1) Fasting exercise - It has been demonstrated that ketones are a superior source of energy, in general but also during exercise. Fasting, when it promotes ketone production, can provide all the fuel necessary to perform your exercise. Endurance athletes are now using ketones, both exogenous and from body fat, to help them be superior athletes. and in fact are exercising "in a fasted state". WARNING!!! this implies that your body is "FAT ADAPTED". Look it up and get there.
2) Ketones, CAN BE, though not necessarily are, a superior fuel source for exercise as well as after exercise. Carbs are great and almost required for sprint exercises, but they run out quickly. The old "carb load" stuff is fine as far as it goes, but it doesn't go very far because the storage is so limited. But after the exercise, eating a ton of carbs isn't a grand idea either (for us FAT folks). Small amounts of proteins, small amounts of carbs and high amounts of healthy fats will get you further.
My husband thanks you for this article!
Looks like another comments section has been hijacked by attempts to sell us supplements etc. Don't Sparkpeople ever monitor and ban these trolls?

I've tried so many diets that I can't even remember them all. The Three Week Diet is by far one of the best ones. It is simple and easy to follow and it works. The science behind it makes me feel safe and supported by facts not just hype and sales jargon.I highly recommend this diet over all the others claiming to be the best on the market right now.The amazing part is I've lost 37lbs of my stomach fat on this diet plan.
I have analysis your post. Nice material you done here. This information is useful to for all. http://truweight.in/
If you don't have enough time for exercises or don't want to start to calculate all the numbers of the calories , you can use weight loss supplements : http://healthydietsonline.com/weightloss/w
You can eat want you want , increase your energy level and lose about 12-15 lbs in a month.
