The Metabolism of a Sports Car

If I told you that I know of a diet plan, pill, patch, shot, soup, or other means that will allow your body to burn substantially more calories, would you be interested?  YES!  Before losing weight, I can’t tell you how many crazy things I’ve tried in order to get that deal….of course, unsuccessfully!  The great news is there is something that can cause your body to be efficient and rev your metabolism to the level of a sleek sports car.   The time cost is minimal yet the rewards are great and long-lasting. 

Our bodies store energy in two types of tissue – lean muscle and fat.  Lean muscle is more “active,” burning calories at a much higher rate than fat.   In fact, according to studies by the American Council on Exercise, one pound of lean muscle can burn between 35 to 50 calories a day, and a pound of fat burns only 2 to 3 calories a day!!

The more muscle you have, the more calories you burn.  To build more lean muscle tissue, all you need to do is strength training for two or three days per week.  It also has a positive impact on your food choices as well.  When you feel strong physically, it also translates into feeling stronger mentally and emotionally.  That’s a great deal! 

Making one small change, such as incorporating strength training, can have tremendous change in your overall health and sense of well-being.
