Fat Loss Has Nothing To Do With Calories
The notion of fat adaptation is invaluable piece of knowledge. To achieve being fat-adapted, I needed to focus on a crucial hormone called insulin. It is the master hormone for metabolism. Insulin is critical for health. Insulin regulates blood glucose for survival. Excessive glucose in our bloodstream can be toxic, therefore insulin removes it naturally. Insulin does its work. But too much of this hormone triggered frequently and over a long period is the primary reason for not losing fat.Fat Loss Has Nothing To Do With Calories

Loneliness Is In The Mind
I transformed loneliness into pleasant solitude and serenity. We are born lonely and will die lonely. I learned that dependency on others would not bring joy but disappointment and pessimism.

All emotions are ephemeral, and they don’t define us.Loneliness Is In The Mind
