Boost Your Metabolism and Burn More Fat

Metabolism is the key to weight loss, and all you need to know is the higher your metabolism, the more calories you’ll burn.  How do you boost your metabolism and burn more fat?  Your metabolic rate is influenced by your genetics, but exercising and watching what foods you eat can really boost your metabolism into high speed.

boost your metabolism and burn more fatNot all exercises are created equal when it comes to boosting your metabolism, so you must choose the best ones to obtain this goal.  You’re looking for exercises that do three things: burn calories during the workout, burn more fat and additional calories directly after the workout, and exercises that increase lean muscle mass which will then help you burn more calories and boost your metabolism.

Exercises To Boost Your Metabolism and Burn More Fat

When you do an endurance workout that has a steady speed throughout, such as cardio machines for 45 minutes plus, you are burning calories, but you’re not going to get the burning of calories afterwards or building of muscle mass, so this only meets one requirement and is not the best choice to boost your metabolism.

Interval Training is a type of cardio workout where you push yourself at a high intensity for a short period of time and then recover at a slower intensity of exercise. This will help you burn calories during the workout as well as give you burning of additional calories after your workout.

Strength Training or lifting weights is one of the best choices for boosting your metabolism because it helps you burn more fat and calories during and after your workout, and it helps increase your lean muscle mass. Time For Change Personal Training uses a combo of Strength Training and Interval Training to help you boost your metabolism big time and burn more body fat.

Foods To Boost Your Metabolism and Burn More Fat

Don’t waste your time working out if you’re going to miss the crucial step of feeding yourself the right foods.  A good workout and healthy diet go hand in hand, so you’ll need a variety in your healthy diet.  The recommended carbohydrate intake for adults is 50-70% of total caloric intake (stick with only complex carbohydrates), 15-30% for protein, and 10-30% for lipids (good fats and oils). Also, aim for an intake of 25 grams of fiber per day, and at a minimum, drink half of your body weight in ounces of water daily.
