Increase Metabolism To Burn Fat While You Sleep

Written by Jim O'Connor. Posted in Exercise For Great Health


Boosting natural metabolism is a common goal most fitness minded individuals have


The big question is how to increase metabolism to the bodies most efficient output possible. A few basic steps can make such a big difference in turning your bodying into a fat burning inferno.

Imagine if you could easily turn your body from an effective fat storage machine into an emulsifying fat burning oven. Another words, you are able to burn more fat, at rest, without doing any additional exercise. To turn your body into a fat burning machine, and increase metabolism, all that is necessary is to follow a few simple natural metabolism boosters.

However, before we get into metabolism enhancers, it is important you fully understand what basal metabolic rate (BMR) really is. Your BMR is the amount of calories your body needs at rest to maintain normal bodily functions like a beating heart, maintenance of body temperature, and basic respiration. Your basal metabolic rate comprises about 60% of the total calories your body needs each, and every day. Thus, the more calories your body consumes at rest, the greater possibility of burning more unwanted body fat.

Rest-Your-Way-Towards-Better Health

Far too many workout warriors are not seeing the physical fitness program results they deserve


They think they are on the most effective, efficient workout plan possible; but they are only kidding themselves.

Take a quick glance around your fitness center. How many physiques actually do change? How many individuals look confused as they mill around from exercise to exercise working at 50% capacity? Honestly, how many people are simply wasting their valuable time in the gym?

If you are truthful, the answer is a whole lot of people. Most think they are on the best fitness program ever, but are really on an extremely ineffective, inefficient workout plan. The sad thing is they don't even realize it. It really does not have to be this way.

One of the most important aspects of any workout program is exercise intensity.

Especially in the world of strength training, intensity is a must for results. However, the newest fitness program buzzword is rest between  workouts. There is no such thing as overtraining, just under-resting.

Killer Weight Training Routine Secrets To Use

Written by James O'Connor. Posted in Exercise For Great Health


Your weight training routine will either reward you with excellent results, or totally break your heart


That is why it is important to be on the best strength training program possible that takes into account your personal goals .

Every weight lifting participant has an individual reason for wanting to be on a resistance training routine. Some want an increase in strength, power, and muscle size.

Others focus on muscle endurance, improving athleticism, or even improving their quality of life. As you can see, the reason people are on a weight training routine varies drastically. However, one aspect each of these participants have in common is a goal to improve.

Now for the unfortunate news. Most weight lifting workout routines are drastically flawed which leads to lack of weight training results. Why? Because of the strength training program fiction that riddles the fitness industry. It is very likely that some of the weight training routine principles you carry are severely flawed, and not backed by sound scientific studies. The result is poor workout program results.

So How Do You Lose Belly Fat Fast? Or, Is There Even A Possible Way For Fast Weight Loss?


As a result of all the myths riddling the industry, the answer is more than simple.

So what exactly are the myths swirling around how to lose stomach fat?

First off, let's clear up some confusion. The stomach is an organ which sits inside your body. It is really belly fat, or abdominal adipose tissue that you are referring to, not stomach fat. However, I do realize you are referring to the extra fat on the mid-section.

Why Water Is Important: Your Practically Free Weight Loss Tool

Written by Dr. Emeka Okwuje. Posted in Exercise For Great Health


Every new diet program, book or weight-loss guru eventually mentions water, but only after touting their diet pill, weight loss supplement, program, book or own personal fabulousness.


They have the order backwards, I am afraid. Water is important to your weight-loss efforts, no matter what you are using, eating or doing.

In fact, water should be mentioned at the start, middle and end of every diet book and program, regardless of who wrote them or what they are suggesting. Yes, water is that important, Whether you want to lose twenty pounds or just stay healthy.

Quick! What is the difference between feeling thirsty and feeling hungry? It may be harder to tell than you think and you may be reaching for a snack when all you need is a nice, big glass of water. The feelings of thirst and hunger may be similar because they are similar signals; they are both ways for the body to tell the brain that there is a need.
