I’ve struggled with my weight in the past and realized for health reasons I needed to get the weight off. I could not figure out why I was struggling so much with this issue. I started doing a little research and I picked up a book called the Glucose Revolution.
The book pointed me in the direction of the culprit, my mitochondria.
The mitochondria make energy for the body by burning sugar and fat.
I did not realize that my mitochondria were dormant (sleeping) until I picked up the book Glucose Revolution. Suddenly, it all made sense. I was very sedentary, I gained a lot of weight in my midsection and I was always out of energy.
After reading that the mitochondria were responsible for burning sugar and fat to make energy I realized I had to take action. I started walking up to an hour a day and lifted weights three times a week and gradually that belly shrunk.
In other words, I woke up my mitochondria.
