Learn All The Tricks and Tips Of Increase Your Fat Burning, Metabolism

The role of being healthy. It seems that most of my adult life I have been facing the difficult of maintaining the health and fitness that I once had it high school. This isn’t to say that I have been overweight for a long time or that I am abnormal – at least from what I can honestly assess.

I think the big deal is my relative approach, which for me is that I was a 5% body fat level in my Senior Year of high school and now I would say that I am floating very close to 30% – I shutter just to think about that.

So, what do you do? Since I love reading, I have pursued to understand the concepts of gaining weight and ways to lose weight in a very healthy manner. Among all of my reading , recently, I came across ebooks; ebooks that I can learn from and access at home, at work, on breaks, etc. Anyway, found this book for 8 bucks online and have found it to be very beneficial in learning the role of the metabolism.

As I have and am learning, as you are able to understand the metabolism and the use of your personal energy store in the utilization of burning calories you can take steps to balance your calorie intake and the utilization of your resources. This book opened my eyes to ways to increase my metabolism while maintaining my current calorie intake – here are a few ideas I found in this ebook:

  • Start by understanding what a metabolic rate is – which is basically which is the rate at which an individual burns calories, base on the activity the individual. In this case, knowing your personal metabolic rate while resting is probably the best way to learn what options best assist you in increasing your metabolism.
  • Age, Sex, Height and Weight all are categorical pieces that create this resting metabolic rate.
  • Typically 70% of the metabolic rate is used daily through the “normal” bodily functions.
  • Here are ideas that I have generated from reading this book – ways to increase my metabolism:
  • Stand, don’t sit o Drink ice water (body want to maintain body temp – 98.6 degrees F
  • Keep moving – tap feet at your desk, move your arms and limbs while watching TV o Exercise in the cool weather – similar to the ice water concept
  • Stretch when you exercise – even the slow, methodical movements burn calories and strength building muscles
  • Consider where you calories are coming from – some calories create more energy than others (ie – the act of eating celery burn more calories that you can consume with that vegetable)

I have and am tracking my success of implementing and using many, many more concepts from this book, so you can share with me. Feel free to share other concepts you know of in this effort – maybe books, etc. If you are interested in getting your hands on this book – check it out here
