Eat a Cheese burger for Fat Loss

A 4oz Cheeseburger has 300 calories, 12.0g of fat and 33.0g of carbs in each sandwich...
Now let's look at some facts we already know:
Food energy is the amount of energy in food that is available through digestion.
Each food item has a specific metabolizable energy intake (MEI). Normally this value is obtained by multiplying the total amount of energy contained in a food item by 85%, which is the typical amount of energy actually obtained by a human after the digestive processes have been completed.
So everything we eat can be burned
Your body has 2 fuel systems, so to speak. There is Aerobic and Anaerobic.
"Now, the Aerobic system uses oxygen to burn fuel, and the Anaerobic system doesn't. But one does not replace the other! What happens is you start out by burning fuel with your Aerobic energy system, and once you go past the point where there is enough oxygen in your system to provide Aerobic energy to your muscles, your Anaerobic system kicks in. Think of this as your SUPRA-AEROBIC zone."
To get there, you need to get your heart rate up past what is typically referred to as the 'Target Heart Rate Zone' using common aerobics lingo. You should use a Heart Rate Monitor to measure yourself while doing this program.
So for this we need FOOD!!!
Excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) is a measurably increased rate of oxygen intake following strenuous activity intended to erase the body's "oxygen debt."
In recovery oxygen (EPOC) is used in the processes that restore the body to a resting state and adapt it to the exercise just performed. These include: hormone balancing, replenishment of fuel stores, cellular repair, innervation, and anabolism.
EPOC is accompanied by an elevated consumption of fuel. In response to exercise, fat stores are broken down and free fatty acids (FFA) are released into the blood.
The EPOC effect is greatest soon after the exercise is completed and decays to a lesser level over time. One experiment found EPOC increasing metabolic rate to an excess level that decays to 13% 3 hours after exercise, and 4% after 16 hours. Another study, specifically designed to test if the effect existed for more than 16 hours, conducted tests for 48 hours after the conclusion of the exercise and found measurable effect existed up to the 38 hour post-exercise measurement.
So if WE PUSH...We will burn and burn and Burn....
So how much can we burn if we push????
Think about what you ate this morning.
Maybe it was a bagel, or a bowl of cereal to go along with that cup of coffee.
Now compare that to what Olympic gold medalist and swimming sensation Michael Phelps eats in the morning, and you might feel a little malnourished:
— three fried egg sandwiches with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, fried onions, and mayo
— one five-egg omelets
— a bowl of grits
— three slices of French toast with powdered sugar
— three chocolate chip pancakes
— two cups of coffee
For lunch, Phelps drinks 1,000 calories worth of energy drinks, one pound of pasta with tomato sauce and two large ham and cheese sandwiches (with mayo) on white bread.

For dinner, Phelps’ meal consists of six to eight slices of pizza, another pound of pasta with tomato sauce, and 1,000 calories of energy drinks.
Do you need to do this?
Not unless you are training as hard as he is...
What's the point?
Stop trying to starve your need to eat in order for your body to burn...and you need to be ACTIVE in order to Burn some more...
You can gain a lot of weight by skipping breakfat, having a salad for lunch, and a "lean" frozen dinner if you are not active...
The days of endless hours of long, slow, and boring cardio are a thing of the past. If you are looking for crazy results in a short amount time, high-intensity interval training is the only way to go.
