Getting Rid Of Extra Calories

by : ChrisChew

To burn more calories 24 hrs a day is simple. Yes, I said simple but I did not say it is easy. That is because you must have a firm commitment and mental discipline to do it. However, it will get easier and easier when you adapt to your new lifestyle. By then, you will be able to burn off extra calories fast forever. You will no longer be fat and unhealthy.

So how do you burn more calories 24 hr a day? Here are some simple steps to burn more calories:-

?Build muscles. Muscles are active cells and they are great calorie burners. The more muscles you pack on, the more body calories you will burn because the calories you have eaten will be burned for energy by your muscles. It is estimated that with each pound of muscle you put on, you will burn an extra 35-50 calories everyday even when you are sleeping. You can see how much calories you will burn in a year just by multiplying these figures 365 days of the year. All these calories are burnt just because you have gained a pound of muscle. What if you have more muscles?

?Do your cardio exercises in the morning before breakfast. Make sure that your cardio exercises raise your heart rate sufficiently to burn more fat. The exercises must be intensive and will leave you puffing, panting and sweating. This is to make sure that you will continue to burn calories hours after you stopped your cardio exercises.

Do your cardio exercise 5-6 days a week. On top of that, because your carbohydrate store is low in the morning, your body will burn more calories from your body fat to fuel your cardio exercises so that you will lose weight and body fat consistently.

?Eat 5-6 times a day with about 3 hrs intervals between meals. Make the meals small consisting protein and complex carbohydrate. Complex carbs are carbs that are more difficult to digest so that they do not spike insulin quickly to be converted into body fat. So instead of eating white rice, eat brown rice. Instead of having white bread, substitute it with brown bread instead. Have plenty of fresh leafy fibrous vegetables.

The frequency of meals will tell your body that there is plenty of food and so your body need not store body fat for emergencies. On top of that, your digestive system will be constantly working to digest the food and so that means burning of calories.

?Do weight training 3 times a week with rest days in between. Do your weight workout in the evenings so that you will continue to burn calories in the night. Workout with compound exercises such as bench presses, squats, lunges, dead lifts etc to activate more muscle fibers and so that these large muscles will carry on burning calories for many more hours into the night. That means you will be losing weight even when you are sleeping.

?Take slow release protein supplement before bed such as casein protein. This is to feed your body throughout the night and help your muscles to recover from the day's activities and at the same because casein protein is slow to digest, your body will continue burning calories even when you are asleep.

So with a combination of all these activities, you will be burning body fat calories almost 24 hrs a day. Simple? Great. Let's start to lose weight by burning more calories round the clock now.
