If you’re anything like me, no matter how much fat you lose it never seems to be enough. Sound like how you feel? You just want to constantly exercise and get rid of every ounce of fat on your body? Unfortunately, that’s simply not possible due to our busy schedules.
There is, however, a way to burn extra fat during your busy schedule. With a faster metabolism, you’ll burn more calories on average during your ordinary daily routine. So how do you achieve a faster metabolism? Follow these two simple tips and you can accelerate not only your metabolism, but also your fat burning fitness goals.
Tip 1: Eat lots of food! Well not in terms of quantity, but more in terms of frequency. One problem many dieters run into is the starvation effect; they here that the only way to lose weight is to maintain a calorie deficit. This is only half true. If the dieter doesn’t take in food often enough, the body goes into starvation mode and stores every last bit the dieter eats as fat. In order to achieve a faster metabolism, you need to eat 6-8 meals spread out throughout the day. If you begin to think you’re eating too much food due to the feeding frequency, count your calories. The ideal number of calories for cutting fat is 12 calories per pound you weigh per day. Find that total based on your weight and spread it throughout the day in 6-8 meals and you’re on your way to a faster metabolism!
Tip 2: Take advantage of the effects of high intensity interval training. If you’re unfamiliar with this type of training, head over to the website in my bio and learn more. This type of training speeds up your metabolism tremendously. The added stress releases excess levels of catecholamines and growth hormone, your best fight fighting friends. Clinical studies show that base levels of these hormones stay elevated far above baseline for up to 72 hours after the session. By simply doing 15 minutes of intervals, you’ll achieve a faster metabolism for the next 3 days!
How difficult is that? With a small manipulation of your diet schedule and 15 minutes of intervals every other day, you’ll be burning more calories while you’re watching TV than everyone else does while there at the gym! Use these two tips for the next month and watch your fight fighting efforts finally pay off.
