Free Leucine to Keep Your Muscle That Helps You Burn Fat and Lose Weight
It is a fact that most people do not stick to diets. We have good intentions but it is hard to stick to them. There are constantly new diets being introduced and we think the next new diet will be the one that 'will work'.
There is a problem with starting and stopping all these diets. When you stop the diet because it either isn't working for you or you can't be consistent with it, you go back to your normal level of calories consumed. In the meantime, you have lost muscle along with the fat you (hopefully) lost. Along with that lost muscle, you lost the ability to burn calories efficiently because muscle burns fat for all of us.
So now, when you start eating more again, the extra calories turn more easily into fat. The body now has even more fat than before - and less muscle than before. People who have gone on repeated diets are in a cycle of losing muscle and gaining and re-gaining fat.
A pound of fat burns only 2 calories per day. So if you are 20 lbs (of fat) overweight, and you multiply 2 by 20, you are only burning 40 calories per day. If that extra weight were muscle, it would burn 50 calories per pound and result in 1000 calories.
A person damages their metabolism with this kind of yo-yo dieting, making it almost impossible to lose weight.
Now that you understand more about the connection between muscle and weight loss, there is something that can help. Weight loss and weight management programs with amino acids called leucine help the body build and repair muscle tissue and burn fat!
Leucine is the amino acid that signals your body to preserve muscle during weight loss. We say that 'Cinch is Powered by Leucine' because it helps you keep your muscle so you lose your fat.
When you use a leucine powered weight loss/management program, you can actually keep 100% of your important muscle mass - a healthier option because it is your muscle that burns your fat and improves your metabolism. This means the weight you lose is all FAT!
Some athletes take leucine because it initiates protein synthesis in the muscles for muscle building. In weight loss, this muscle building counteracts muscle breakdown that happens when you eat fewer calories (when you are on a diet).
Consuming leucine can be as easy as having a protein shake every day for breakfast, and if you need to lose significant weight it can be two meals for you each day. Eating snack bars or meal bars with leucine in place of other foods that are higher in calories or don't have the nutrition you need when you are trying to cut calories and lose weight are easy options. Sipping on tea that gives you energy and helps you get from one meal to the next without snacking is a Cinch!
