Exercise is very important if you are looking to lose fat fast and get a fit and healthy body, but a body needs more than just exercise. Diet plays just as important a role in keeping fit and healthy. Not just any diet, but one that is adequate for your exercise and fitness regime, and includes healthy fats.
A certain amount of fat is necessary to keep healthy cell membranes throughout the body. Eating healthy food will ensure that the cellular processes in your body will be healthy also.
Eating bad foods, such as those that are processed, and include chemicals, will certainly go towards breaking down the cellular structure due to lack of proper nutrition. The cells will have to compensate for impaired cell structure, and have to work much harder. This is when diseases infect the body.
You need a balanced diet to keep the body balanced, ensuring normal hormone production, muscle building at a normal rate, and good rate of fat burning. Minerals and vitamins that we consume will be absorbed and used for enzyme regulation.
There are many reasons we tend not to eat healthily. It could be that it is too difficult and time consuming, much easier to get a pre-packed meal, with no real regard to what chemicals might have been added.
Supermarkets make it easier for us to just buy the pre-packed food. The added chemicals, salt, sugar etc very often enhance the taste and we do tend to like the taste of fast food, so we are tempted to buy them as treats.
We have also been mislead for years into believing that the good fats have been added to the bad foods, when they either have not, or such a small amount it made no difference.
Also it is so very easy to eat out, we then don't know what is added or taken away from our food. Restaurants might not use the proper oils, but go for the cheapest option to cook with.
If you want to lose fat fast and develop a healthy body, you have to learn to eat the right foods, this means we need to know what oils are added to our food.
