The Easy Way To Burn More Fat

May 8, 2008
Burning fat to lose weight is not just a matter of eating less, or worse, eating hardly anything at all. Losing weight is not a matter of merely producing a lot of sweat for many hours everyday. Losing weight is not a matter of taking diet pills with questionable effects.

Losing weight is anchored on one bodily process: metabolism.

Metabolism is defined as the body's ability to break down foods in order to transform them into much needed energy. These foods include calories.

Simply put, the faster your metabolism is, the faster your body will be able to burn calories. On the other hand, the slower your metabolism is, the slower it will be for your body to get rid of those calories, and more calories will remain in your system calories which will build up into unsightly and unhealthy fat.

Want to burn fat and lose weight?

The quickest, simplest, surest way is to make your metabolism work at a faster rate.

And believe it or not, it's very easy to do this.

Muscles, Metabolism And You

Indeed, metabolism is vital for our existence, more so, for people who wish to shed some pounds. What powers metabolism, exactly?

The engines behind metabolism are your muscles.

Muscles are always on the move. They serve our bodies every second of every day, regardless if we're in motion or at rest. Our muscles work while we're working. Our muscles work while we're pursuing more leisurely goals. Our muscles work even while we're sleeping.

And when muscles work, they burn calories.

If you want to lose some weight, you have to increase your muscle mass. This way, you'll be able to accomplish two important things relevant to your goal:

1. You will be able to burn extra calories and fat while working out; and 2. You will be able to sustain a steady rate of fat burning throughout each and every day.

These, aside from the obvious benefit: you'll simply look better with a leaner, trimmer body.

Increasing Your Muscle Mass Doesn't Require Gym Addiction

Most people are under the mistaken impression that in order to develop some muscles, they'd have to spend countless hours in the gym. As a result, though many people realize the extreme benefits of increasing their muscle mass, they fail to pursue such an idea because the mere thought of what will be required is enough to tire them out.

Well, they're wrong.

Increasing your muscle mass doesn't have to involve sacrificing your life for some gym time.

In fact, you don't need to go to the gym at all.

The best way to increase your muscle mass is through a category of exercises called resistance training. Resistance training will develop your muscles by applying certain degrees of pressure so that they'd strengthen up.

Weight training falls under resistance training, mainly because of the stress the weights place on the muscles.

But weight training isn't the only type of exercise that can be considered under this group.

Simple pushups likewise accomplish the same aims, because the weight of your body will provide the pressure needed to build up your muscles' resistance. Sit-ups work the same way, and so do other similar workout routines. These are exercises you can carry out from the comforts of your own home, at any time.

Maintaining Is Just As Important

Once you develop some muscle mass, your metabolism rate will be faster, and you'll be able to burn more calories and experience less fat buildup. Better yet, you'd likewise be able to burn existing fats.

However, being able to lose weight is just half the battle won.

You also need to learn how to maintain your new figure. Maintaining your muscle mass, of course, is an essential ingredient to sustainable success when it comes to weight loss. Your metabolism rate needs to be preserved.

Additionally, do not deviate from your normal diet. Most people have the tendency to eat more once they experience some form of weight loss. For them, they feel that their goals have been reached and that they have to celebrate.

But losing weight is never a short term goal. Rather, maintaining a healthy weight is a continuous goal to be pursued each and every day, without fail.

If you have been accustomed to eating a medium-sized meal per sitting, then stick to it (but do try to cut down on food with unhealthy ingredients). Your body is used to the intake of such an amount, and it has proven that it can break them down efficiently. You may eat less, but not so much to deprive your body the nutrients it has come expect.
