What Speeds Up Metabolism - Help Me Burn Fat Faster
I have been asked the question so many times over the years “what speeds up metabolism?” And it is now getting a lot more awareness as a topic of discussion in gyms and diet classes all over the world.
“Help me burn fat faster” is what I over hear gym members saying to instructors all the time. So, let’s take a look at some of the fundamentals that cause your metabolic rate to slow down and more importantly some solutions to get your “fat burning motor” speeded up again so you can burn more calories and melt fat easier.
First off all from the age of 25 we all start to naturally and gradually lose muscle tissue. Research shows that by the time we hit 50 years old due to this loss we will on average burn up to 1,000 calories less every day than we did in our youth. This is why you will hear people say “well I eat less now than when I was younger but I’m putting weight on.” That’s due to a huge change in your body composition.
To counteract this problem a lot of people cut back on calories which means they cut back on meals. That’s a huge mistake because each time you eat you boost your metabolic rate to digest the food you consume.
To cap it all only about 30% of the UK where I live are physically active. By doing a strength training workout just 3 times a week for 1 hour you will not only prevent muscle loss but hold on to it and boost your metabolism when you train as well. That’s a win-win situation.
This kind of training will help you change your body composition. The key to a fast metabolism is having a healthy body composition which is lots of lean muscle tissue and a healthy body fat level. Combined with eating 5- 6 times per day you can re adjust your metabolic rate and turbo charge your fat loss like never before.
Women should not be afraid to lift weights in fear of looking bulky like a bodybuilder. Due to the fact that females don’t have enough testosterone in their system it is extremely difficult for the ladies to gain muscle at all. But you will end up with a better shape and toned body.
What Speeds Up Metabolism Conclusion
Weight/strength training is not just for athletes and bodybuilders. It’s for regular women and men just like you. Even pensioners will benefit from training with weights.
Make sure that you eat your meals little and often and always stay within your calorific range for the day. Not only will this boost your metabolism but you won’t go hungry either. Get sufficient protein daily which is another factor in holding onto lean muscle while on a weight loss plan.
