Regular weight training triggers a quicker metabolism and helps you reduce body fat. Weight training increases your lean mass, and this results in a faster metabolism because muscle burns more calories than fat. Twice or three times per week, train your body. You’ll be doing more than just reducing your body fat, your heart, health, and mood will improve.
SAY YES TO PROTEIN
Keeping your metabolism going and burning fat efficiently while retaining as much muscle as possible is dependent on taking in a high amount of protein. Your body will burn carbohydrates first, because this is your main energy source. Once it runs out of carbohydrates, it will begin to use your fat as fuel. You don’t want your body dipping into your hard-earned muscle to use as energy. It is for this reason that it is of prime importance that you eat as much protein as possible while losing the weight.
SAY NO TO PROCESSED FOODS
Through the excessive heating and cooling processes, which are required in order to give processed foods extended shelf lives, vital nutrients are greatly diminished. What this means is that if you’re eating processed foods, then you’re getting lots of empty calories – calories that come with few or no nutrients that your body needs. So either you’re not getting these nutrients, which is bad for your general health, or you need to eat a whole bunch of calories in order to get them. On the other hand, if you’re consuming “nutrient dense” foods (fresh foods that aren’t processed), then you can get all the nutrients you need with many fewer calories.
