Your metabolism is totally controllable by you. You can lose weight easily If you speed your metabolism up naturally and safely.
Increasing your lean muscle mass enables your body to burn more fat as it takes more effort to sustain muscle than it does fat. Therefore, more lean muscle mass you have, faster your metabolism is likely to be. Therefore, your exercise regime should include not only fat burning exercises but also some muscle building exercise. Women should note that this does not mean you have to get ‘beefy’ but just tone up your muscles.
Protein also plays an important part in this process. Women should generally consume about 100 grams of protein per day and men 150 grams. This can be quite difficult to achieve unless you take a protein supplement. You then know exactly how much protein you are consuming and it is much easier to control.
So message is: 1. Don’t skip meals – you will end up putting on weight. 2. Build lean muscle mass by doing a combination of weight training as well as fat burning exercises. 3. Make sure you are consuming right amount of protein per day to aid in building lean muscle mass.
