Carbohyrate Burner vs Fat Burner

You know you’re a carbohydrate burner if you:

  • have belly fat
  • have trouble losing weight despite diet and exercise
  • need to eat every 2-3 hour (or will have symptoms of hypoglycemia if you don’t – edginess, mental fogginess, dizziness, shakiness, headaches, and intrusive thoughts of food especially carbohydrate craving)
  • yawn frequently mid-morning or mid-afternoon
  • have energy that tends to be labile (up and down) throughout the day
  • have cravings for sweets or feel the need to snack after a meal
  • have trouble falling asleep or waking in the middle of the night
  • have high blood pressure
  • have high cholesterol


You know you’ve become a fat burner if you:

  • don’t have belly fat
  • are your ideal weight (or moving toward it at a steady pace)
  • can go 6-8 hours without eating and not have symptoms of hypoglycemia
  • have good steady energy all day long
  • don’t have a craving for sweets
  • fall to sleep easily and sleep soundly
  • have normal blood pressure
  • have healthy cholesterol levels
