10 Tips For Quick Fat Loss; Start With Your Metabolism

Sep 10, 2008
Obesity is a widespread problem; it is not limited to one nation or even one age group. And over the years we have learned that dieting is not the answer to this epidemic. So you might be wondering what the solution is, and I will do my best to explain it and to give you some simple tips on what you can do to effectively lose fat quickly.

To begin, let us talk about the way your body uses food. Your body is designed to use the beneficial calories in ways that will enhance the functioning of the organs and bodily systems. Empty calories become stored, you guessed it, as fat.

So what we need to do is learn to eat the right foods at the right intervals and all will be right with our weight. I know I am over-simplifying here but it really is true. I am essentially referring to you learning to work with or in some cases learning to manipulate your metabolism so that it will function in a way that provides the best advantages for you.

The way to do this is simple really. You will need to learn a little bit about what foods are high in nutritional value and also learn something about how the metabolism of your body works.

Below you will find 10 tips for increasing your metabolism:

1) Incorporate physical activity into your daily lifestyle
2) Eat breakfast
3) Avoid sugar
4) Eat spicy foods
5) Get plenty of sleep
6) Drink lots of water
7) Eat smaller meals
8) Never skip meals
9) Avoid stress
10) Eat foods with high nutritional values

The reason I did not say to add a regular exercise routine into your busy schedule is because that alone can be a deal-breaker for some people. After all, we are busy enough as it is, who has the time to add the time involved to going to the gym. But there are simple things that anyone can do daily to increase our activity level and thus increase our metabolism rate; such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, taking the dog for a walk, or parking at the backend of the parking lot.

Skipping breakfast is a major mistake made by many people. Overnight your metabolism rate slows down in order to spread out the calories your body has available. This slowing down will continue until you feed your body, which will boost your metabolic rate.

Sugar enables the body to store fat so it should be avoided as much as possible. On the other extreme, some spicy foods can actually speed up your metabolism. Sleep is needed to rejuvenate your body, providing you with the energy needed to help keep you feeling fresh and energetic during the day. Water helps to flush out toxins from the body.

I am sure that by now you are starting to see how all of these things work together to establish your metabolic rate. The actual foods that you eat do make a huge difference as well as the intervals of your meals. You should eat small meals but eat them often. Plan your meals ahead of time because that can help to prevent the last minute grabbing for a quick high calorie fix. And do not skip meals because just as with your nighttime rest, your body will adjust the metabolism to spread out the calories as much as possible.

Stress can contribute to eating the wrong foods at the wrong times as well as triggering the release of a steroid called cortisol, which decreases metabolism. Do what you can to avoid negativity in your life.

Knowledge is power and after you learn about metabolism you will have the power to control and manipulate it. Metabolism is the key to fat loss. Forget diets and do not worry about joining a gym or jogging around your neighborhood, just learn about metabolism!
