“The single most effective method for boosting your metabolism is strength training. Strength training builds metabolism boosting muscle along with a large list of other benefits. Basically, muscle adds horsepower to your metabolism even when you are at rest. By adding strength training three to five days a week to your workout schedule. Strength training does necessarily have to be done at the gym. You can add a great workout to your routine with resistance bands and simple home equipment. “

“No other macronutrient has as strong of an influence on your metabolism as protein. Protein is highly thermogenic, which means it produces heat through metabolic stimulation. Approximately 25% of protein calories are used for the digestion process. “Kim Lyons –whose information is used here from the Muscle & Body magazine, recommends getting at least 1 g of protein per pound of lead body mass. “ If you do not know your lean body mass, you can eat .6 to .8 g per pound of body weight.”

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.”
