3 Ways to Get Fit Without Exercise
Updated: Feb 9, 2022
Getting fit can often seem complicated, challenging and time consuming, but it doesn't have to be. Simply understanding how the body works, learning why it stores fat and following the 3 tools outlined below can help you get lean fast, even in the absence of exercise.
It all comes down to a fat storing hormone called insulin. When activated, insulin signals the body to store fat cells. When lowered, our bodies tap into this stored body fat to be used as fuel for energy, by turning the stored body fat into ketones and transporting those ketones through the bloodstream.
Here are 3 ways to lower insulin levels and burn fat without sacrificing your time, energy or money:
1. Intermittent fasting
This is by far the best way to lower insulin levels overnight. Through simply refraining from eating any calories for a minimum of 14 hours throughout the day (this includes sleep), you lower insulin levels so much that your body taps into its stored fat cells to be used as fuel for energy. The longer you fast, the more fat you burn. Remember: your sleep counts towards your intermittent fasting time period.
