Top #10 Reasons We Love Carbs for Fat-Loss

Carbohydrates - The ‘Performance Fuel’ Macronutrient - or the devil for fat-loss?

What high performing athletes use to fuel their success in sport, what ‘Gym Junkies’ should be using to fuel their workouts, but what most people blame for their lack of results..

Unfortunately there is a major misconception in the fitness industry that “Carbohydrates” = Fat-Gain

Some would even describe ‘Carbs as being the devil’ - “As soon as I eat Carbs, I just blow up”

For most of us (barring any major intolerance’s or insulin sensitivity issues) the very reason you may not be hitting your performance goals in the gym, or body composition goals in the mirror is because we aren’t eating enough Carbs.

Not only are most Carbohydrate foods delicious and life without them can be miserable, there are actually #10 very valid reasons to back up our opinion:

Eating Yourself Lean: The PPS Approach to Body Transformations

THE CLASSIC APPROACH TO GETTING LEAN

In the Body Composition & Body Transformation world, the most common method to induce fat-loss is to ‘Eat Less & Move More’.
This is typically based around creating a ‘Calorie Deficit’
i.e. eating less food than you burn to encourage your body to use body-fat for fuel.

The only problem with this method in the long-term, is that the body will always adapt.

Which means; you have to continually reduce calories, or increase exercise to be in a caloric deficit and eventually you start to hit rock-bottom, causing your results will plateau.

The PPS Results Based Workout Formula

If surveying most novice gym goers training, for body composition or strength,
“What program do you follow?”

Most would answer with either;

“Nothing, I just randomly use what equipment is available at the Gym and smash it”

OR

They would follow a typical body-part split or what we refer to as the ‘Bro-Split’

I.e. Monday: Chest Day, Tuesday: Back Day, Wednesday: Leg Day and so on..

For anyone wanting to get stronger, burn body-fat or gain muscle we wouldn’t suggest either option and I’m sure if you have been in this situation before - you would probably agree...
