Not only does what you eat have an affect on your fat loss goals, but how you eat is equally as important.
Once again, the only way to lose fat is to burn off the excess calories. Calories are stored as fat when you’ve consumed too many calories. Simple equation. You need to watch your caloric intake and not compromise your nutritional intake. In addition you need to get that metabolism up and there are several ways to do that. In addition, how you schedule your meals and your habits while eating will also have an affect on you.
The key here is a hormone called leptin. Leptin helps to regulate the size of your fat cells and also tells the brain when you’ve had enough to eat. It also does other things but for now we’re focusing on these two functions.
With fitness, bodybuilding, and weight loss training, there are several things you can do to increase your metabolism. One of the best two are exercise and fasting. When doing exercises, make sure to use the right tools and equipment. You can check these gym equipment names and prices guide for beginner using exercise machine. Both should be done under strict doctor supervision and not to be done hastily. Take time to build up to a good workout or fast that won’t interfere with your daily routines nor leave you vulnerable to injury or fatigue. Soon, in about a week you’ll be revving up that metabolism to something that will burn more calories while you’re awake and sleeping. Especially if you’re bodybuilding. Muscle eats up fat and calories when at rest and is why when sleeping you’ll feel that warm buzz.
You’ll also need to eat smaller portions, several times a day. It’s like when you’re building a campfire to keep it going you keep on tossing in more wood but not huge clumps at a time. This keeps your metabolism working on a steady flow and not big spikes that can cause rises in blood sugar levels.
Not everyone is the same and there’s room for experimentation here. Some people will have good metabolic increases with an increase in protein or carbohydrates. You’ll know what works best for you as you go through your daily routine and sleep cycle. Be careful to watch for salt in the foods because they’ll cause you to retain more water thus throwing off your true body weight and might make you try to exercise more or eat less.
Spicy foods do raise body temp and that could also help with burning off some excess calories but don’t overdo it. There’s no need to prove to everyone how many super hot peppers you can eat, just add some pepper and other hot spices sparingly, or if you can take it, to taste and fire up those engines.
