The body will use up most of the fat before it goes after the muscle unless the fat contains a lot of toxins and is locked. Here is an article for
you to read. en.wikipedia.org...
Try to eat healthier food. Avoid eating too many things that suppress the thyroid such as
goiterinogens. Many of the cruciferous veggies if well cooked are good but when raw pose a problem. Eat breads made with unbromated flour because
bromate lowers the creation of adrenaline.
If the SHTF it is important to know that aged foods can help keep muscle mass from deteriorating. Research Tyramines. Excess is stored as
octapamines in the muscles and can help with fight or flight responses. Too much and you can get crabby, just look at the bar fights for evidence of
that. If the body cannot process the Tyramines it will give you a morning headache, I am still working on the reason that the body doesn't break them
down. Shortage of copper can cause this as well as mineral imbalances.
Vanilla is a beta blocker which calms people and can help to regulate heartrate. Sometimes it has Propylene Glycol in it though and that has stronger
effects than the vanilla and it is not complete, vanilla has other good properties other than the chemical that gives it the vanilla taste. If you
want some good vanilla, go to an organic store and buy some organic vanilla extract. We are hooked on that stuff now, my wife would have a fit if I
told her this stuff was evil. I can't find anything bad about real vanilla if used in moderation but using too much of it can have some negative
effects. Remember that vanilla is a calmer and overconsumption can make you gain weight.
Fat can be used to build muscle also. It has some of the necessary building blocks in it. People don't understand that fat below the skin is
necessary and so is the brown fat. Eating foods consistantly that block blood vessel development during exercise means that big muscles will not be
able to work right and still be weak because of low bloodflow. These foods that block blood vessel growth are listed as anticarcinogens and they do
work for that but they also make healing properly a problem. If you want strength the muscles need blood vessels properly placed in them.
Eat homemade beef soups to build muscle and lower fats. Put some veggies in them to get minerals. Eat that soup with a sandwich made from real
Italian meats, not those crappy ones they have in the grocery store that are neutralized. Use good Italian bread made with unbromated flour,
something that is hard to find. A little mustard on the sandwich can help to keep the bloodpressure from elevating to high or just eat a piece of
celery or a slice of cucumber.
You have to experiment on your own to find the results you want. Remember not to overdo any one type of food, incorporate it into your diet. Eating
something aged boosts adrenaline so it should be eaten half an hour before work. Cereals are aged grain but too much is no good either, they give you
fast energy but you dive in an hour.
Fasting occasionally will help you be able to utilize fats in the body. It also helps to keep you younger as it helps regenerate the body. I used to
eat once a day for many years, eating when I got home from work. My dad taught me this saying that always eating is not good for us. Some people
can't do this but others do well with this. My wife can't skip a meal or she gets crabby. She eats different than I do. You have to find your own
nitch but must be aware that mineral and vitamin deficiencies can occur if doing this system. Everyone is different.
