Fat Burning Tips – Tricks to Boost Up Your Metabolism

Did you know that YOU can enhance your metabolism so that your body becomes a fat burning machine, day and night?

Let’s face it, we can only burn so many calories during the time spent training at the gym. In a fat burning program, it is very important to pay attention to the time that you spend away from the gym; the other 23 hours during the day. Is your body using that time to burn calories or store calories?

What is your fat burning potential?

The main reason people are overweight is because their basal metabolic rate (BMR) is lower than it should be. BMR is the rate at which your body burns calories to perform its normal functions of digestion, circulation, breathing, etc. This means that they burn fewer calories 24 hours a day. Obviously, over a period of months, this adds up to stored fat.

Here are some ways to increase your metabolism so that your body burns calories all day and night long…

  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals. Don’t starve yourself! This is an inevitable path to losing lean muscle tissue, which is responsible for burning calories. The more muscle you have, the stronger your metabolism will be, and thus the more calories you will burn throughout the day. That’s why some people who are quite lean and muscular can eat and eat and eat, without gaining bodyfat.
  • Performing moderate to high intensity resistance training and high intensity interval training (HIIT) will build the muscle needed to strengthen your metabolism. A common result of performing HIIT is that your body will be on a metabolism “high” for hours after your training session, making calorie burning easier than ever.
  • Eat whole, nutrient dense foods. Whole foods are called “nutrient dense” because we don’t need to eat as much of them (less calories!), yet they contain more useful nutrition – and they require more energy to digest which means more calories burned.
  • Look for ways to be active. Park as far from the store as you can rather than looking for the closest parking spot. Use the stairs rather than the elevator, etc. Look for the “hard” way to do things!
