Weight Loss Science (Part 1)

Now, the fact that you are browsing blogs on our website probably means that you are already dedicated to your weight loss journey and have made tremendous headway already! What you might read in this two part article are things that you already know, but the purpose of this article is to go one step beyond and really explain why each step is extra important. As always, supported by science.

1. Exercise

If you are already a member of Delta Life Fitness, then chances are you are already doing this. Obviously, the purpose of exercise is the burn calories but it actually also burns calories for you hours after you leave the gym! As your muscles recuperate from the day's workout, it uses energy (aka fat) to power its strengthening...and this is all happening when you are sleeping! Even notice how you wake up sore the next morning? That's why!

2. Start your day with protein

Not only does eating breakfast help curb hunger throughout the day but so does protein. Eating protein releases a hormone in the brain called the PYY hormone which stops you from feeling hunger. Starting off your day with an egg or a protein shake can help you last longer to lunch or help you general eat less throughout the entire day.

Hope this was helpful to you! Delta Life Fitness wants to support your mental and physical wellbeing from home and we hope that our content has given your day just a little bit more joy. Stay home and stay safe!
