A high percentage of people who take up exercise are looking to burn fat and therefore many fitness magazines, especially bodybuilding magazines, have praised the low intensity “magic” fat burning zone. The problem with staying in the fat burning zone is that while you are burning a higher percentage of fat, you don’t burn a lot of calories. Try interval training to increase your calorie burn, while also taking advantage of the fat burning zone during the low intensity interval periods. Ilen & Lauren Bell are the husband and wife team behind Black Fitness Today, born, in 2011, out of their motivation to change culture, build a platform and lead the charge. Plastered on the cover of the checkout lane magazine is a scrumptious pumpkin pie loaded with whipped cream next to glistening sugar cookies, candy canes, and gingerbread monstrosities. I’m not going to tell you to divide your food into tupperware containers, count calories, use a color wheel, workout for two hours per slice of pie, eat low-fat gravy product, and use fat-free whipped topping on Splenda-infused cobbler.
As soon as the family drama kicks in, you might find yourself binge-eating gingerbread cookies behind the Christmas tree, chugging jugs of eggnog, then feel guilty the rest of the month because you wish you had more self-control. Tradition: Every year since before you were born, your family gathers to bake cookies, drink hot chocolate, and build snowmen.
The more you restrict food and amp up your workout, the more difficult it will be to stick with your plan. Separate Your Emotions from Food: This is a stressful time, but you don’t have to use food as a coping mechanism. Know Your Trigger Foods: If you can’t stop before polishing off an entire plate of Dad’s frosted sugar cookies, then you might want to avoid those.
Plan to Indulge: Plan to make and bring your own homemade pumpkin pie (get our Wild Diet Pumpkin Pie here, Apple Pie, or other homemade gluten-free dessert). If having an alcoholic drink or two is part of your holiday celebration, then by all means, go ahead. Drink only the highest quality alcoholic beverages (steer clear from the “well” and mixed drinks).
Limit yourself to 1 or 2 drinks a night and watch your carbs—you might feel hungry but it’s just the liquor talking. If you do find yourself going a little overboard, use those extra calories for good rather than letting them fuel the guilt-monster. If you “accidentally” eat two heaping helpings of mashed potatoes or polish off the apple pie, use it to power a killer workout—take the nephews to the sled hill, hit the ski slopes, shovel the neighbor’s’ driveway, or hit the gym hard. If you want Paleo-friendly, low-sugar, low-carb, and truly delicious fat-burning holiday recipes, check out our Holiday Feast eCookbook.
You’ll find recipes for a traditional holiday feast made according to The Wild Diet (and Paleo-friendly), including Maple Brined Turkey with Apple Sage Stuffing and Caramelized Onion Green Bean Casserole. After years of frustration, sickness, and increasing flab, I stopped listening to the “experts,” “gurus,” and even my doctors.

Here's how your body uses fat and carbohydrates for fuel during exercise and a calculator that allows you to see how different levels of exercise intensity affect fat oxidation. When we exercise, our bodies typically use a combination of carbohydrate and fat to fuel our performance. How intensely we exercise is the primary determining factor of which energy source gets used. If you walk for 60 minutes, you might burn 500 total calories, of which 250 calories of fat get used up.
If you perform sprint intervals for 30 minutes, you’ll likely burn twice the amount of calories and though the percentage of those calories will be less than walking, the overall number of fat calories could easily be more. In using a 2005 published study on fat oxidation, we can make a strong educated guess on the percentage of fats and carbs being used during exercise for a given age and specific gender.
Interesting to note is that the study found men to switch from fat fuel to carb fuel faster than women and men always showed lower rates of fat oxidation when they were burning fat. Also keep in mind that the body has to get rid of excess carbs before burning fat so even a low-intensity activity will be a carbohydrate activity if you stuff your face with twizzlers and a 44oz Mountain Dew before you exercise. Control the carbs, eat healthy fats and mix in different kinds of cardio for your best fat burning results.
Low intensity activities such as walking burn a high percentage of calories from fat when compared to more intense exercises such as sprinting, which burns a higher percentage of calories from carbohydrates.
You must burn 3,500 calories to lose a pound and although walking can get you there, it doesn’t give you the biggest bang for your buck.
Their purpose is to help change the culture towards health and fitness in the African-American community, showcase those who are making an impact, and promote healthier living.
Get your FAT-BURNING goodie bag that will teach you how to quickly and easily eliminate belly fat and reach optimal health. That idea is part anecdotal evidence, past history, and part the socially accepted idea that we will all overindulge this time of year and gain an average of 2+ pounds (that we never burn off, by the way).
Before all your holiday activities gets rolling, figure out how you’re going to de-stress when something comes up.
Eat something else instead, preferably protein or fiber which are highly satiating (especially this time of year).
And when there is decadent food involved in an activity, remember that most people won’t even notice you’re not eating it. Unless you tell them, your family won’t even know it’s gluten-free, low sugar, and made with real ingredients. Plus: learn the 3 worst foods you should NEVER eat and the 7 best exercises for rapid fat loss. Avoid beer if possible, instead going for dry hard cider, dry red wine, or top quality liquor. Activated charcoal binds to the toxins (like leftover booze) and clears them from your system while you’re sleeping to help you avoid a hangover.
Or if you want something new, there’s the Beef Tenderloin with Bordelaise, Garlic Mushrooms and Greens, and Decadent Chocolate Cake.


My name is Abel, and a few years ago, I decided to seriously focus on my health and made some alarming discoveries.
I buried my nose in the research and experimented on myself like a lab rat until I found the truth. Protein (in the form of muscle) can also be used so understanding how the body draws on it’s energy sources is of great importance in achieving body composition goals. In our last post on healthy fats, we discussed how the preferential fuel of the body is fat but it can’t use that when we have sugar (from the carbs we eat) in our system. While a larger proportion of fat calories are used for the lower intensity activity, a higher overall amount of calories are used for the higher intensity activity. The best bet is to have the best of both worlds; periods of low intensity followed by high intensity exercise.
They also aim to serve as a platform for African-American fitness and health professionals and enthusiasts who are otherwise overlooked in traditional fitness media. Maybe it’s a breathing exercise, a quiet walk, a meditation, a break to watch a movie or listen to a podcast. Depriving yourself of your favorite comfort foods won’t help, and there’s no reason to sabotage your gut with wheat. Maybe it’s your take on a classic, like Goji Cranberry Sauce… or something new, like Decadent Flourless Chocolate Cake. The best time for sugar is directly after a workout, for sure (whenever that happens during the day).
I created this website to share these discoveries and help people achieve their diet goals, in a fun, healthy and sane way! There is never a situation where you body is relying on only one nutrient as the sole energy source. Maybe it’s just counting to ten in your head when something triggers your fight-or-flight response. You can set yourself up for success by loading your plate with 80 – 90% veggies and meats, leaving a little room for a treat or two.
As a bonus, your delicious home-cooked food could stop mom and dad from asking why you eat Wild! When it comes to fat + carbs, it’s the combination of the two that leads to fat gain.
If you’re depleted of carbs and try high-intensity exercise, the body turns to your precious muscle as a fuel source.
So a little bit of fat with something sugary will help slow gastric emptying and reduce the rise in blood sugar, but eating too much of both at the same can lead to packing on pounds.
