Understanding food quality requires both recognizing the nutrients that our body needs to optimize fat burning and avoiding those that lead to unhealthy eating habits.
Kim added: “Food quantity and training are key factors in the fat loss equation, but if sustained fat loss is the goal, it’s imperative to incorporate nutrient-dense whole foods while eliminating processed forms (in addition to portion control and regular training).
“For example, the liver plays a key role in whole-body detoxification, along with the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats.
“Without quality nutrient consumption, the liver cannot efficiently regulate the metabolism of fat.
“We need to understand the foods we should be incorporating into or eliminating from our diets to achieve sustainable fat loss.”
