how to burn more calories and have your desired body

Feb 29, 2008
Going on a diet and losing weight can be an extremely frustrating task. In reality it is not always as easy as just going on a diet and exercising. Weight can come off very slowly and in some cases not at all even if youre doing everything right. So what is it that you are doing wrong? Well it isnt you, its your body. Your body reacts against you and fights to keep the store of fat in your body; the metabolism slows down to stop you from losing weight.

However, weight loss is possible if you learn the proper strategy. The following are some of the best ways we've found to increase your body's metabolism and in the process burn calories.

Start drinking green tea at least 3 times a day. Green tea is a great help to your metabolism and can help keep it high while you continue to burn more calories. Not only does green tea contain caffeine to keep you going but it also has certain plant chemicals that can aid your metabolism.

You have to keep your workouts ever changing. Don't get stuck in a rut and train at the same times and doing the same exercise. Your body will soon become used to it and stop working with you and start working against you. Not only will your body get bored but so will you. Keep your workouts fresh and different and remember to change the intensity and the difficultly of the exercise program as you become more proficient.

Without adding any more time to your workout schedule, add to its intensity. Throw a couple more weights on the barbell or add more resistance to whatever exercises you're doing. If you're creative, there are any number of ways to make your workout more intense without lengthening the time.

Develop some "nervous habits". Really! Start tapping your fingers or your legs; click your fingers. Every little movement adds to the number of calories you burn.

Focus on what you eat rather than how much you eat. By this we mean don't stop eating. Instead, make sure your meals are comprised of healthy foods. And be sure to eat a healthy variety. If you skip meals, your body will react by slowing your metabolism, which will actually cause you to lose less weight.

Don't forget the liquids. Fluids, especially water, should be a part of any healthy diet. Most health experts suggest the equivalent of five bottles of water daily. Add more water, and your metabolism will increase, which causes you to burn more calories faster.

Don't get bored at the gym. Get out into the fresh air and the sunshine and get some proper exercise. Research has shown that when exercising outside and in the fresh air, people worked harder and for longer. Whether it's due to the sun or the air doesn't really matter; get yourself out and about and get you fit and healthy.

So now, armed with these suggestions for how to burn more calories at a faster pace, it's up to you what you do with this information. If you'll put it to use, in no time at all, you'll be the more fit person that you desire to be.
