A Cool Trick to Redirect Calories to Muscles Instead of Fat

Activate glut-4 to put calories into muscles
Want a cool trick to help your body decide how to use those calories you just ate? Exercising right before and shortly after a big meal can help to activate a protein inside your muscle cells called Glut4. GLUT-4 is a protein that, when increased, tells your body to put calories into muscle tissue, instead of fat cells.


Here is how you activate your glut-4


Step 1: Do 60 -120 seconds of exercise right before eating (i.e. squats, lunges, push-ups, etc.)

Step 2: Eat a meal

Step 3: 90 minutes after your first bite, do another 60-120 seconds of exercise


Doing this will allow more calories to flow toward your muscle cells than fat cells.
