For about three to four hours after you begin eating a typical meal, your body is operating in what is called a “fully fed state.” Essentially, your body is operating on what you just ate. From that point your insulin levels return to pre-meal levels, and the body is fueled from stored energy that is being released in a catabolic process. I call this state “maximum metabolic mode,” which is the time when the most body fat is being burned. This mode can continue for another 12 to 18 hours until you eat again. This is because your bloodstream contains a steady supply of essential nutrients to stave off the breakdown of lean body mass while your endocrine system is signaling for the release of stored energy. The moment you eat anything that provokes a significant rise in blood sugar, this maximum metabolic mode stops. Because of snacking and eating too frequently, most people spend little or no time in maximum metabolic mode.
