This Diet Is NOT Long Term: The Results of Speeding UP The Metabolism Has Lasting Effects

When it comes to weight loss, a fast metabolism makes the difference between reaching your goals and spinning your wheels without seeing much progess. Not only does a speedy metabolism help you burn more calories, but it allows you to eat more during your weight loss journey, making you more likely to stick with your new lifestyle for long-term results.


The Metabolism

How To Speed Up Metabolism

While there is some evidence that components in certain foods, such as the phytochemicals and caffeine in green tea, may have a marginal effect on your metabolism, being more active may have the greatest impact. Physical activity, such as walking or swimming, helps your body burn more calories, but being more physically fit may actually increase your BMR. That's because muscle burns more calories than fat. Incorporate regular aerobic and muscle-building activity, such as situps and pushups, into your routine.

Burning Calories

There are three ways your body burns calories. The first is called your basal metabolic rate, or BMR, which consists of the calories needed to support basic body functions from breathing to brain function. The BMR makes up the bulk of your metabolism, burning 60 percent to 70 percent of calories consumed. You also burn about 10 percent of your calories through food digestion, which is referred to as the thermic effect of food. The third way you burn calories is through physical activity, which not only includes exercise, but also the calories burned doing everyday activities.


The Magic of Water and Weightless

Your body needs water to process calories. If you are even mildly dehydrated, your metabolism may slow down. In one study, adults who drank eight or more glasses of water a day burned more calories than those who drank four. To stay hydrated, drink a glass of water or other unsweetened beverage before every meal and snack.

How To Stay Fit After This Diet

Instructions

  1. Do cardiovascular workouts to burn fat. Running, swimming and bicycling are good examples of cardio workouts. Do cardio three to five days a week for 30 to 60 minutes to lose 1 to 2 lbs. a week. You could reach your 15 lb. fat loss in less than eight weeks with a successful cardio regimen.

  2. Eat several small meals throughout the day. This will help you stay full and keep blood sugar levels stable.

  3. Add fruits and vegetables to your diet. Fruits and veggies are low in sugar and fat. Eat lean meats such as pork and chicken -- and avoid foods high in calories and fat like desserts.

  4. Drink lots of water. Water helps boost metabolism, which burns more calories and eliminates fat.

  5. Be consistent with your diet and exercise routine. Keep in mind that it takes time for weight loss to become visible.
