WEIGHT LOSS TIP: Your metabolism is the key to long term healthy weight loss and the key to increasing your metabolism is to increase the amount of muscle on your body.
You can think of the muscles on your body as your engines that give you the ability to move and just like the engine in your car your muscles need plenty of fuel to power your movements.
Anything you can do to add more muscle will increase your body’s demand for fuel because it is just like adding more engines with a corresponding increase in fuel requirements.
The best news about muscle is that muscle burns fuel in the form of calories all the time twenty four hours a day and the more muscle you possess the more calories you will burn all the time.
Compare this to say aerobic training where you only burn calories for the limited amount of time while you are performing the aerobic activity. What all of this means is that one of the best things you can ever do for weight loss success is to build plenty of muscle and the good news is that you can build more muscle any time you desire.
Of course you must do the proper kind of training which means weight lifting but if you are serious about losing weight and having a healthy body then weight training is the best thing you can ever do and the new muscle you build will not only help you lose weight but will also give you a lean muscled body that will make you proud.
