Fat Burning Truths And Myths

A common myth in the casual fitness world is that there is a “fat-burning” zone that will allow you to burn the most body fat. The fat-burning zone does exist!

However, exercising within it doesn’t measure up as the ideal exercise mode for losing body fat. Most important for fat loss is that the energy (calories) that is entering the body is less than the energy leaving the body.

There are lots of ways of making this happen, and increasing the use of fat for fuel is an excellent tool for superior body composition.

This article will give you 11 fat loss facts, covering everything from how the body burns energy to when and how to focus on enhanced fat burning so as to optimize body composition.
