Metabolism And Weight Loss

If you are trying to lose weight or just wanting to maintain your body weight as you age, increasing your metabolic rate (the amount of energy expended per day) is the key to sustainable weight loss. Many diet and fitness experts will have you believe that the key to weight loss is burning more calories in harder and harder workouts, and/or by imposing drastically reduced caloric diets. Both approaches are flawed and dangerous to your health. Only a sustainable increase in your daily metabolic rate will achieve permanent weight loss. There are many ways to give your metabolism a boost – including exercising at the right intensity, eating right, and putting on more muscle.

“Aerobic exercise” also known as fat burning exercise is low intensity activity that allows your body to combining oxygen with the nutrients in your body to burn fat as fuel. During aerobic exercise you teach your body to burn fat as the primary energy source. Most sedentary people have a carbohydrate dependent metabolism. However, fat is a much more efficient fuel providing more energy than carbohydrates per gram. And who doesn’t want to burn more fat?

STRENGTH TRAINING

Additionally, strength training with weights or other forms of resistance will increase muscle mass. Muscle is more metabolically active than fat; therefore the more lean body mass you have the higher your metabolism will be. Incorporating a sound weight training plan to your routine will significantly speed up the weight loss process….

Exercise Tips for the New Year…

  1.  The key to sustainable weight loss (as opposed to the “yoyo” weight loss and weight gain of trendy weight loss fads) is a high resting metabolic rate as well as balanced nutrition. Your resting metabolic rate, or the calories you burn throughout every minute of the day, is much more important for weight management than the calories you burn while exercising. One pound of muscle burns about 15 calories, one pound of fat burns 3 calories.
  2. Strength training 3 times a week for 30 mins (at gym with equipment, fit camp with own body weight, at home with resistance bands/dumbbells with the 24Fit Workout)
  3. Take part in your favourite cardio exercise (dancing, walking, running etc.)
  4. Over 35? Step up your strength training. By your mid-30s, most people still look young, but are already experiencing the BIG Three of aging: deteriorating lean muscle mass, worsening posture, and crumbling joints.
  5. Choose “Periodisation Training” (24 Fit Workout DVDs) over the “Militarisation of Fitness“. Teach your body to be fat burning machine v  rather than just burning carbs.
  6.  Use a post workout shake after training which accelerates lean muscle growth, which in turn revs your metabolism and burns more fat, and speeds up recovery. Eating soon after your workout not only speeds the recovery process, it also can prevent you from feeling deeply ravenous and overeating later on. Recovery shake = 10-20 of protein.
