A ton of research has been devoted to investigating why some people lose weight while others don’t, why some people succeed at keeping weight offonce they’ve lost it while others don’t, and what factors tend to influence your ability to successfully maintain a healthy body weight.

And basically, what it boils down to is… your metabolism.  375x321 make the most of your metabolism  ref guide 5 Ways to Create a Fat Burning Metabolism

Very simply, leaner people have a higher metabolism than fatter people. The reason…lean people have more fat-free mass OR lean muscle than their fatter counterparts. Since muscle burns roughly 50x times calories than fat it would make sense that having more lean muscle would be a predictor of long-term success in weight management.

Point to Remember #1:

Resistance training builds lean muscle and is therefore ESSENTIAL to boosting your metabolism and thus helping you lose weight and keeping it off for good.

Point to Remember #2 – Best Predictors for Keeping Weight Off

A very interesting study out of the journal Obesity Research found that the best predictors for weight maintenance after weight loss were the following:

• an increase in dietary restraint during weight loss,
• a high baseline resting metabolic rate (as a result of resistance training),
• a rather stable body weight (ie. no excessive fluctuations in weight gain/loss), and
• a low frequency of dieting

Point to Remember #3 – It’s All About Lifestyle

I don’t know how many times I’ve said this in my life but it needs to said again…You can’t maintain a healthy weight without a consistent effort towards improving your lifestyle. You need to make healthy eating and resistance training workouts a regular part of your life, especially if you’ve been battling excess weight for most of your life.

Here’s a simple reason why. A large meta-analysis on metabolism published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition revealed that formerly obese subjects had a 3–5% lower metabolic rate than control subjects.

Now many people would just say “Well, being fat is just in my jeans!” And that may be partially true BUT… the researchers in this study found that whether the cause of this lower metabolism was genetic or acquired, the existence of a low metabolism was likely to contribute to the high rate of “weight regain” in formerly obese persons.

These findings only further demonstrate the need for boosting your metabolic rate! And this doesn’t occur by spending endless hours doing cardio and following low carb diets!

5 Tips to Create a Fat Burning Metabolism:

Here are 5 ways that you can immediately start revving up your metabolism for the long run so that you can achieve and maintain your ideal for good!

1. More RESISTANCE TRAINING, less cardio

Lean muscle doesn’t come about by doing cardio 7 days a week. You need to stress your muscles to develop them. Use your body weight, use resistance bands, use machines, use dumbbells, or any other form of resistance. The key is impose weight bearing resistance against your body! Use Fitter U if you haven’t already.

2. Eat RAW FOODS every day

High amounts of food enzymes found in raw foods allow your body spend more energy on metabolism and less on digestion. Here’s how you can start.

3. Eat small meals throughout the day

We’ve all heard this before and for good reason. Keep your fire burning by adding small amounts of wood to it throughout the day – that’s the analogy. This is much more effective than stuffing your face full of food once of twice a day.

4. Drink GREEN TEA

Green tea has been shown to boost metabolism. Researchers believe that antioxidants in green tea can cause the body to waste calories as heat, which increases your caloric burn.

5. Add some SPICE to your meals

The following herbs and spices are well-known to speed up metabolism: cayenne pepper, jalapeno peppers, ginger, peppermint, and cinnamon – just to name a few.
