The best fitness advice around town! Joshua Jarmin, owner and trainer at Blueprint Fitness answers a reader’s question about fat-burning.
Q: How do you recommend I kick-start fat-burning when I first wake up?
A: I recommend you eat protein (preferably red meat) and a source of fat (i.e. avocado, almonds and so on) when you wake up. The protein will start the process of protein synthesis to help heal damaged cells from the previous day’s training session, and the fat will tell your body’s neurotransmitters to use fat as energy instead of carbs. Drink either water or coffee (no sugar added) to help get your body going.
