Treat yourself and your sweet tooth, with these fat burning chocolate truffles.
Did you know fat is the macro that affects your blood sugar the LEAST?
The past several months, I have been learning more about macros, specifically which macros or combinations to help with fat loss and increasing metabolism. I am learning about the female hormones, how our metabolism works and how to deal with weight loss resistance.
As I am learning, I am also testing on my own body. I am testing different foods, different macros percentages and different workouts. So stay tuned, as I will be sharing more in the future.
High fat and low carb diets have been proven to help with weight loss, especially those in weight loss resistance, insulin resistance and those with a history of diabetes.
