Exercise For Body Types
Exercising but Still Can’t Lose?
You would be shocked to find out how little is known about exercise when it comes to triggering fat-burning hormones. In “The 7 Principles of Fat Burning“, you’ll learn the essentials of using exercise as a tool to influence maximum fat burning. You will also discover a new approach that is designed to burn the most fat during exercise for your body type and why using the wrong kind of exercise can actually stop weight loss.
The liver is the main organ that is supposed to eliminate these toxic chemicals. It does this in two phases. In the first phase the liver tries to neutralize toxins that have built up in your body. In the second phase it will try to convert these neutralized toxins into less harmful particles, which can be eliminated through the urine and bowel. Your own excess hormones are also either deactivated or recycled within your liver.
There are two principal kinds of exercise: (1) low-intensity, low-pulse-rate endurance exercise, called aerobic; (2) higher-intensity, higher-pulse- rate resistance exercise, called anaerobic.
If you have an Adrenal body type, you will start with aerobic exercise, because the adrenals are already overworked and putting them into too much stress would make things worse. Overstimulating the adrenals can trigger the stress hormone cortisol, and cortisol can make you fat. With Adrenal types, intense exercise will block the rejuvenation and repair of the body. In some cases, the person will even gain weight with exercise.
Some people with large bellies think they need to just work their abs and the weight will melt off because the abdominal muscles are in the same location as this fat, but that is not how it works. This belly fat is not coming from a lack of exercising of the abdominal muscles; it is coming from the hormone cortisol.
The Ovary body type is a lower-body cellulite fat, which needs a combination of endurance and resistance exercise. Liver and Thyroid body types, on the other hand, respond best to anaerobic (intense) exercise. However, if you are fatigued, I don’t recommend you even start exercising.
Let the eating plan build up your energy, and then add in exercise. Athletes in training, on the other hand, are in a completely different situation and may actually want to train using both aerobic and anaerobic exercise. And for many young people and those who still have their full metabolic systems intact, weight loss may come easily from using either method.
Exercise n. a regular series of specific movements designed to stress and activate muscles, causing new cellular adaptations and developments – not merely the burning of calories.

There are two basic ways a person could exercise and many variations in between. You could keep the intensity low and exercise for a long time; you could also increase the intensity and exercise for very little time. Each action affects hormones differently.
From a hormone point of view, to create the maximum fat burning...more
You have no doubt heard that you should lose weight so you can be healthier, because obesity is a health risk. It is actually just the opposite. You need to be healthy first before you can actually lose weight. You are fat because some area of your body is unhealthy. If you have stubborn weight problems, you have unhealthy hormones. You can’t be fat and healthy at the same time.
Your weight is a symptom, not the cause. Shift all your energy and attention to fixing the cause by creating a healthy body and the symptom of weight will no longer be a problem...more
There is another “popular” idea that building more muscle mass (through anaerobic exercise) will cause the body to burn more calories.
This is absolutely true; however, what is the source of those calories being burned? Are they from sugar or fat?...more
The body, like a machine, needs energy to operate. This requires some type of fuel, in this case food in the form of protein, carbohydrates and fat, which is burned off into energy. You also have stored fuel—sugar and fat.
There are two energy-producing systems in the body that allow us to be in motion...more
Aerobic means with oxygen. For our purposes here, the aerobic energy system can be defined as burning fuel with oxygen. Your body burns stored fats and stored sugar in the presence of oxygen. An automobile uses a mixture of gasoline and oxygen as its fuel. Similarly, when the body is in the aerobic mode, it uses oxygen in the mixture as well. The aerobic system runs at a turtle’s pace – slow to moderate ...more
Anaerobic means without oxygen. The anaerobic energy system produces energy without utilizing oxygen; its ONLY source of fuel during the time of exercise is sugar in the blood or stored sugar in the muscles and liver.
This system does NOT initially burn fat fuel during the time you are working out. However, it does stimulate fat-burning hormones 14 to 48 hours later...more
1) Intensity (the power behind the exercise) and difficulty
3) Duration (total time of exercise)
5) Rest (The goal is to use exercise strategically to maximize and keep your body in fat burning and minimize fat-making stress hormones.)
Today we will discuss the first two: Intensity and Frequency...more
The first one is growth hormone. Remember that this is the antiaging, fat-burning, lean-body-mass-producing hormone, which also helps prevent the breakdown of proteins—like your bones, muscles, hair, skin and nails. It is stimulated by intense exercise (anaerobic) only. This hormone works through the liver.
The second one is glucagon. This is the opposing hormone to insulin, which gives the cells fuel between meals and is also fat burning. It too works through the liver and is stimulated only by intense exercise...more
The time should be between 25 and 40 minutes, not to exceed 45 minutes. You need enough intense exercise to trigger growth hormone yet not so much that it over stimulates cortisol, which tends to nullify growth hormone. The intensity should be high; on a scale from low to high, you should aim toward high. However, after a while the intensity is relative from person to person, so this needs to continue to increase over time. This also applies to the overall difficulty level (again a relative term from person to person). You should keep it at a moderate to high difficulty level ...more
If the stress gland is stressed, you want to avoid intense exercise. To improve the stress gland, the correct exercise is calming and less stressful. This type of exercise will burn fat mostly during and slightly after the exercise ...more
1. Keep the intensity low. Keep it light enough so you can breathe comfortably.
2. Start with 15 minutes per day and work up to 60 minutes per day. (Some people will find they can do more than 60 minutes, but the exercise period should be no longer than 120 minutes per day.) Over time you will get used to this and your body will plateau. When that happens, you could add in the anaerobic exercise.
3. Exercise every other day at first with rest in between. After two months, you could progress to daily...more
The fat-burning hormones are stimulated by intense exercise. Anaerobic exercise is intense. The more intense it is, the greater the triggering of fat-burning hormones.
The Benefits of Anaerobic Exercise
Even though this system uses primarily sugar as fuel during exercise (NOT fat), it can help stimulate fat burning because of the fat-burning hormone effects 14 to 48 hours later ...more
If you have an Ovary body type, you need to combine BOTH aerobic and anaerobic exercise. You should do this by exercising every day with anaerobic and either every other day or even daily with aerobic.
The type of fat the Ovary body type has is a superficial cellulite. It is mostly below the bellybutton. So the best type of exercise is lower body—walking, running, treadmill, soccer, basketball, jazz dancing, step aerobics, etc. Focus on working the muscles of the hips, thighs and buttocks. Force these muscles to use energy from the surrounding fat layer ...more
