Every time that I hear that someone is turning to weight loss supplements as opposed to natural ways of losing weight, it makes me shake my head in shame.
Learning the art of revving up your metabolism is one of the most powerful tactics to drop weight, hands down.
Some common ways of doing this include:
1. Having a healthy diet and eating right. Sorry for all you freezer-goodie lovers.
2. Exercising in the morning or in the late evening after a long fast.
3. Trying some different food preparation techniques like steaming lean meats or fruit juicing.
These common techniques will always be a good place to start, but constant determination and discipline are how you will finish and succeed.
The main reason that adopting a new diet and eating right are difficult is because we love having a routine. Once we start eating what we like at a certain time during the day, it’s hard to change.
If you love freezer goodies and saturated fats, why not try healthy and lean alternatives like real chicken as opposed to chicken poppers or baked chips instead of frozen french fries?
You know very well that freezer goodies are not metabolism boosting foods.
How often you exercise, and at what point during the day will really help with revving up your metabolism.
Do you know when most marathon runners practice their craft? They usually go out for an hour-long jog in the brisk morning air right after they roll out of be.
Do you know why they do this? It’s because a morning exercise routine is very effective way to increase your metabolic rate and supercharge weight loss.
Starting with a 20-minute morning walk is a great way to ease into a new exercise schedule.
Contrary to popular belief, steaming meats and juicing fruits are not just for infomercial actors.
Again, it might be difficult at first to adjust to a new diet, but always remember that with persistence and patience, good things will follow!
Now what’s all this cheering for steamed foods about? By steaming meats instead of cooking them in grease you can reduce sodium which helps to get rid of excess water weight.
Personally, I like to think that by steaming my foods, I’m preparing my meals to prolong my life as opposed to just stuffing my face.
And what’s all this talk about juicing fruits and vegetables? This is really a strategy for those who just have a hard time eating them because of the taste.
I’ll be honest, I really don’t care to eat a carrot that much, but when I turn it into liquid with a few bananas, it tastes absolutely delicious and is much more easily absorbed for my muscles after a workout.
Revving up your metabolism is so much more effective than any weight loss pill you’ll ever take. And weight loss pills aren’t usually delicious or leading to a new enjoyable hobby. Just keep your head down and stick to it to see the real favorable results in the end.P.S. If you're interested in the diet that I use when I want to get particularly lean, it's Eat Stop Eat. It's very progressive, and probably not like anything you've tried before.
