How Basal Metabolic Rate Works and Its
Connection to the Fat Burning Process
By Team iForce Nutrition
To understand and accomplish burning fat, you have to understand a few key things: basal metabolic rate, cell mitochondria and the process of energy usage for burning body fat.
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) can simply be described as the number of calories you burn while at rest, or sleeping. It’s the number of calories, or energy, it takes to maintain your body’s muscles, organs, and functions. Most people base their caloric intake while dieting for fat loss on their BMR. Considering you will most likely be awake and moving throughout the day, you will be burning many more calories than your BMR. This number can decrease with age or lack of activity. However, it can increase by gaining lean body mass (muscle) and through cardiovascular activity. It is the cell mitochondria that are responsible for providing energy during physical activity. They are known as the “cellular powerhouses”.
Fat burning is a two step process. First step, peripheral lipolysis breaks down stored fat and turns it into fatty acids that are released into the bloodstream. Next, the lipolisis step consists of breaking down those fatty acids for energy.
iFORCE is introducing a new fat burning product called TT-33. This is a unique fat burner because it is known as an “uncoupling agent”. Essentially, the product tells your body’s cell mitochondria to use fat instead of adenosine tri-phosphate (ATP) for energy. Remember what we learned about BMR and fat burning? The uncoupling agent comes in by forcing your body to use those fatty acids in the bloodstream as energy and caloric burning instead of the fuel it would have received from your muscles or somewhere else. This means your body will become a fat burning machine by stripping stored body fat and using it as energy!
TT-33 product is a true fat burner. No matter if you’re prepping for a contest or getting rid of the Trick or Treat candy, this product will pull fat from storage and use it! It doesn’t raise your heart rate like ephedrine products because it’s working on a cellular level. Think of it as cutting out the middle man.
