| Turn Your Body Into a 24-Hour Calorie-Burning Machine
Muscle is the key to increasing your Fat burning when you are NOT exercising. The more muscle you have the higher your metabolism and the more you will burn after you are done exercising.
So how do you get more muscle. The most common way is lifting weights, but there are other ways. As lifting weights requires joining and going to a gym. So I found a great book that allows you to build muscle, work out and be healthier all in the privacy and comfort of your own home. It is called Pushing Yourself to Power.
The book basically explains how body builders of the past built muscle before someone thought about lifting weights. And it does it with pictures, descriptions so even the most inexperienced person can easily build muscle while losing fat.
Another tool many people use is Aerobic exercise. It is generally considered to be the fastest way to burn calories. Problem is, if you approach your cardio workout the way most people do (lower intensity for longer duration), your body will return to a normal rate burning fat very soon after you stop exercising.
To get the most out of a fat-loss exercise program, you need to increase your "after-burn." This refers to the calories you burn AFTER the exercise to replenish oxygen stores, remove lactic acid, reduce body temperature, and return to a normal resting state. And studies show that it is the intensity of your exercise that has the greatest impact on your after-burn.
Doing what is called Interval training helps do this as well. You exercise for more intense periods of time (NOT above your target heart rate) for shorter periods.
Like if you are lifting weights, or doing the exercises from the book above, you will increase the weight or resistance so you are fully exhausted before 10 reps. So if you find yourself able to do 11 reps, increase the weight.
You will do periods of activity at a high level close together with periods of less exertion in between the high levels of exertion.
There are many other things you can do to increase your metabolism. Some of which that have nothing to do with exercise.
In my book, The Ultimate Non Diet – Shattering the 12 Biggest Diet Myths - Secrets of Being Slim, Sexy, Slender and Healthy for life – I reveal to you many simple and easy ways to increase your metabolism. This allows you to Burn Fat even when you are not exercising.
