Ever wondered why there are so many diets around out there and people are
just getting fatter and fatter. We now know that fad and repeat dieting don't
work, so what Sightseeing
Elevator does! I have put together 10 fat loss tips below and if followed
will make things a lot easier for you on your road to fat loss.
Lets have a look at a few:
Burn Fat: Lift Weights - Muscle determines the speed of your metabolism -
the speed of your metabolism depends on how much muscle you have. That's why men
burn fat faster than women... They have more muscle. Women could burn fat faster
if they had more muscle.
Women are scared to lift weights because they will get bigger muscles!! If
only this was were the case. Women do not have the hormone levels to build big
muscles, however they can replace the muscle tissue lost through years of crazy
dieting, irregular eating habits and age.
Yes everybody is losing muscle, every year; every decade because we are
getting older, but only people who let their muscles waste away have slower
metabolisms as they get older. Keep your muscles and keep your fat burning
machine! The only way to do this is get strong and stay strong.
Toss The Scales - The scales tell you none of the things you need to know
about your body and everything you don't. They don't tell you how much fat you
have under your skin, they don't tell you how much skin for that matter. The
scales can't tell you how much fluid is in your body.
What your bones weigh and most importantly, how much muscle you have?
However, weighing yourself can turn a perfectly good day into a miserable day?
Don't let an inanimate, household item determine what kind of day you will have!
They are not accurate so throw them away.
Muscle Vs Fat - Muscle weighs two times as much as fat yet takes up half
Muscle is responsible for burning fat. Muscle is small when compared with
fat. Muscle never hangs off your body in unsightly lumps.
Muscle looks toned, tight, strong and lean. Muscle is tight and hard to the
touch and muscle is heavy. Fat is lumpy and soft and flabby, fat takes up a lot
of space, fat hangs off your body. Fat is also soft to the touch and does not
weigh as much as muscle.
Always Eat Breakfast - Research has concluded that having breakfast is
important to kick-start the metabolism for the day, the body slows down whilst
sleeping and food first thing in the morning actually awakens the body ready for
the rest of the day. Also try eating more fibre at this time as it helps the
digestive system work more effectively and will help keep the blood sugar levels
spread evenly throughout the day.
