Dr. Al Sears MD tells the real secret for summer fat loss and how you can eat to lose weight. He explains how the glycemic index and glycemic load calculations can guide you.
As millions of Americans flock to beaches, pools, and resorts this summer, many people fear they are not bathing suit ready and plan to stay covered up with a frumpy t-shirt rather than expose their excess body fat. Dr. Al Sears, MD, America's #1 Fitness Physician wants to help more people achieve bodies that are beach ready. In his article, "Summer Secret To Fat Loss", (http://www.alsearsmd.com/2014/06/summer-secret-to-fat-loss/) Dr. Sears gives tips for losing weight.
He reveals that the key to summer fat loss is the hormone insulin and he explains how using the glycemic index can help keep insulin and blood sugar balanced. This can help burn fat rather than store it. By understanding the relationship between fat and hormones, a person can improve insulin sensitivity and burn away fat for energy rather than store it as excess fat. This makes it possible to eat to lose weight.
"You can cut calories and still gain weight. You can work out until you pass out and still have that spare tire belly.", Dr. Sears said. "Staying slim boils down to this: Hormones make you fat. The hormone insulin is your number one fat builder. If you don't pay attention to it, insulin can tell your body to pack on the pounds."
Dr. Sears explains how the glycemic index works and how important it is to eat foods that not only have a low glycemic value but also a low glycemic load.

"When you eat foods high on the Glycemic Index, you produce a storm of insulin. Carbs are the highest on the GI list. They spike your blood sugar, and high blood sugar levels require insulin to process it. Eventually your body gets tired and stops responding, which is called insulin resistance.", Dr. Sears explained.
He added, "Blood sugar that your body cannot process gets stored as fat. This is why foods with excess carbohydrates cause weight gain. The idea is to eat foods that do not spike your blood sugar. If you design your diet around foods with a low glycemic load, you will be able to burn fat naturally and get your body bathing suit ready when it's time to hit the beach."
