Increasing Muscle Fat Use

Increasing Muscle Fat Use
Excess calories— consuming more calories than you expend— leads to obesity and poor metabolic health. It also leads to fat accumulation in muscles that causes insulin resistance. A review of literature by Danish researchers concluded that improving the capacity of muscles to use fat could prevent muscle fat accumulation. Exercise is the best way to increase muscle fat use because it triggers large increases in metabolic rate. Techniques such as promoting glycogen depletion, fasting and high-fat diets promote muscle fat use, but these effects are temporary. The best advice for fat loss remains the simplest: do regular aerobic and resistance exercise and cut down on caloric intake. (Obesity Reviews, 12: 852-858)
