Tip Two:
Create an after burn effect:
“The afterburn effect, known as EPOC (excess postexercise oxygen consumption), is your body’s way of returning to homeostatis postworkout. While EPOC occurs after most exercise protocols, it is most elevated after intense burst of activity. If you push yourself in the gym or do intense intervals, you have the potential to have an elevated calorie burn for up to 48 hours. Forget the long cardio sessions and go for a short, high-intensity interval workout.” interval training chart

Tip One:

Increase Calories:
“You must fuel your body with enough calories to get your metabolism-regulating hormones back in check. It is critical to do this slowly. Over the course of weeks and moths, start adding 20-50 calories into your diet. Along the way your weight loss actually starts to pick up again. A reminder, increasing calories means you inevitably increase muscle-glycogen capacity, and glycogen carries water with it. This is a good thing! Water is not fat, and glycogen is fuel for high-intensity exercise.”
