excess calories are part in what causes fat. So to burn fat either here are the choices I suggest...
1) Lower calories
2) Take a stim/non-stim fatburner
3) suck it up and deal with fat.
If you diet right you won't lose muscle, just fat.- Join Me: Tex89 M-Sten RX Log... Dicing that iron -

To answer your question, it's intensity. At complete rest an RER (vCO2 / vO2, for simplicity. RER is measured at the mouth, not at the cellular level 'RQ') value of 0.70 is indicative of ~100% fat metabolism. As intensity increases, RER increases to 1.0 (100% carbohydrates). RER values can reach higher than 1.0, but that has to do with lactic acid production, carbon dioxide production (buffering), etc. Also, the more fats you eat, the higher your fat metabolism will be. As such, the more carbohydrates you eat, the higher carbohydrate metabolism will be. As time of exercise increases beyond 1.0hr a shift from carbohydrates to fats is commonly observed.
Note that at lower intensities, a lower total caloric expenditure will take place as opposed to more moderate or vigorous exercise. In the end, it boils down to kcals in vs kcals out

I would develop a combination of low intensity steady state cardio and high intensity interval training, LISS and HIIT. I would do a little research about both of those, when you do LISS you need to stay at your target heart rate, when you do HIIT the bursts must be at your body's absolute max. Search these two things and you will find a wealth of knowledge. Also while cutting TONS of BCAAs or the hard earned muscle will go away.

your almost always going to loose some muscle with a cut. People are right about BCAA's tho. Get some research, also don't believe anyone or anyones idea that you can turn fat into muscle.

oh no i know u cant turn fat into muscle. so ur sayin when i cut take BCAAs?
11-13-2009, 01:44 PM
