Is Your Metabolism Burning The Wrong Fuel? - By Dr. Len Lopez

The biggest reason people struggle with fatigue and weight gain is that they are burning the wrong fuel! The body is designed to burn ‘calories’ to produce energy. It does this by taking calories from the breakdown of carbohydrates, protein (lean muscle) or fats.

Successful weight loss occurs when you burn stored fats for energy. The patients I see who are always struggling with their weight, are burning carbs and proteins - NOT stored body fat. This is also a critical factor for those who suffer from fatigue and lack of energy… because you produce two and a half times more energy when you break down fats for energy versus carbs and proteins.

The first step in overcoming fatigue and weight gain is to find out how well your metabolism is functioning and determine if stress could be your problem. These are huge issues! I encourage you to use my ‘Online Health Quizzes’ at to see where you stand.

Don’t be confused. Weight loss is not just about how many calories you eat and burn. If you haven’t been successful with your dieting results, it could be because you are focusing on the wrong things. Burning the right fuel can dramatically change the results you achieve with your health program.
