Burn

The third phase of your cycle

At this third phase, your body is still high in hormones like progesterone and oestrogen. Your metabolic rate may be increased here due to this change in levels. The good news is that your immune system is really firing on all cylinders and your body is able to burn fat most effectively.

BURN PHASE – NEED-TO-KNOWS

TRAINING FOR YOUR BURN PHASE

Your Burn phase is often the best time for endurance training and events like long distance runs, because your body burns fat more effectively and stores up carbohydrate. And it’s a great time to go to the gym for a dance class – your body is perfectly geared for aerobic exercise – it needs a lot of oxygen to burn fat.

THESE EXERCISES ARE ALL ABOUT ENDURANCE, SO IT’S UP TO YOU. YOU CAN SPEED IT UP TO ADD AN ELEMENT OF CARDIO, OR SLOW THEM DOWN AND JUST CONCENTRATE ON THE REPS.

FOOD TO FUEL YOUR BURN PHASE

Fat is actually one of the most efficient fuel sources for your body. But not all fats are the same – monounsaturated and polyunsaturated are ‘good’ fats – and they can be found in things like avocados, olive oil, nuts and seeds.

YOUR BODY’S ABILITY TO USE CARBOHYDRATES MAY ALSO BE INCREASED HERE IN THE BURN PHASE, SO YOU MIGHT WANT TO CONSIDER A FEW MORE CARBS.

POSITIVE EMOTIONS

Your body is still high in hormones like progesterone and oestrogen so you might be feeling more emotional at this stage. But this isn’t necessarily a bad thing – now is the time to comfort a friend, or engage in some diplomacy at work. Your metabolic rate is high, so it’s time to get out there and burn some energy.
