I often talk about how important it is to be a fat burner instead of a sugar burner, but what does that really mean? Instead of diving straight into the science, let’s keep this simple: do any of these apply to you?
You know you’re a sugar burner if…
… you rarely feel completely full and satisfied after a meal. Stuffed, maybe. Bloated and uncomfortable, yes. But ready to go another 4-6 hours without anything else to eat? No way.
… you snack regularly. You typically graze throughout the day, even when you’ve resolved to stop eating so much between meals. If you don’t snack, you feel lethargic and moody.
… you often get “hangry.” You’re no stranger to apologizing for being irritable because you were hungry. Your friends and family know that a bad attitude = hand you some food.
… you crave carbs and sugar. A meal isn’t complete without potatoes, rolls, or pasta. Dessert is a must. And when you try to eat less sugar, you find yourself cranky and unable to focus.
… you have a hard time losing weight, especially around your middle. You’ve tried multiple diets, and even when you manage to lose a few pounds, your belly never seems to shrink.
