Burn more fat and conserve precious carbohydrate stores while reducing the likelihood of gastrointestinal (GI) distress. That’s the simple bottom line of this book. Metabolic efficiency describes the relationship between fat and carbohydrate oxidation across a variety of exercise intensities. Many athletes are extremely inefficient at using their almost unlimited fat stores as energy during exercise and rely too much on very limited carbohydrate stores. The purpose of Metabolic Efficiency Training: Teaching the Body to Burn More Fat is to provide athletes of all ages, abilities and sports sound nutrition and training concepts that will improve the body’s ability to burn fat.
This book will provide very specific nutrition and exercise recommendations that will guide you through each training cycle with the end goal of improving your ability to use fat as fuel. Gone are the days of needing to consume a high amount of calories during training and competition. By improving your body’s metabolic efficiency, it is possible to significantly reduce the amount of calories you need during exercise. The end result will be improved health and performance with significantly reduced chances of GI distress.
