Lots of people want to "boost"
their metabolism. I know that because
I receive a few hundred email
messages every month with questions
about boosting metabolism. The
need to boost metabolism is a legitimate
one. I believe that the main reason
so many people are overweight is because
their basal metabolic rate (metabolism)
is lower than it should be. This
means that they burn fewer calories 24
hours a day, even while they're sleeping.
Obviously, over a period of months,
this adds up to stored fat.
news is that you really can rev-up
your metabolism so that you're burning
MORE calories 24 hours a day, yes,
even while you're sleeping! I developed
the "Super Boost" to do
just that. Now, this isn't for
the folks who like to talk alot
about losing weight but don't
want to put any effort in to it. In
fact, this isn't even for those who
want to put a little effort in to it.
This is strictly for those who are VERY
serious about weight loss and health
and are willing to do what it takes!
All others need not read on.
Boost" takes a major commitment
on your part, but it works. It
will send your metabolism through the
roof! Please keep in mind that you should
gradually work up to this frequency
and duration of exercise and that
you should see your doctor before making
any changes in your eating or exercise
1. Do some
type of aerobic exercise (walking, jogging,
swimming, stationary cycling, aerobic
dancing, etc.) on a DAILY basis (preferably
in the morning) for 30 to 60 minutes!
2. Do an
additional 15 to 30 minutes of aerobic
exercise in the evening, five days per
week. Some people like to do this just before
their dinner meal to decrease their appetite,
but after dinner is fine too. In
the interest of injury prevention and not
getting bored with your exercise, try to
alternate the type of exercise you do. For
example, walking in the morning and aerobic
dance in the evening.
"intervals" into most of your aerobic
sessions. Intervals are a powerful tool
to help boost your metabolism. they are
explained in detail in my article, "Intervals
for Weight Loss."
4. Tone your
muscles with weight training six days
per week. Toned muscles supercharge your
metabolism! This should be done just after
an aerobic exercise session. You should
exercise each body part three times per
week - for example, lower body on Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday, and upper body
on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. This
can be accomplished at a gym or at home
with a few sets of dumbells.
eat breakfast! Skipping breakfast sends
the message to your body that you're "starving"
because you haven't had food in 18+
hours (dinner meal one day to lunch meal the
following day). As a protective mechanism,
your metabolism slows down. Food, especially
complex carbohydrates, fuels your metabolism.
