Boost your metabolism to turn your body into a fat-burning machine!

Recently, Gone Liftin’ graced you guys with a good article about the very best superfoods you can eat, called Superfoods!! 8 Foods That Ramp Up Your Metabolism.

In this post, we are going to discuss other variables that are necessary for optimizing your metabolism to turn you into a true fat-melting, calorie-burning machine!

We wanted to use this article from GeneticWar.com, as a reference point, as it outlines everything pretty damn good, as usual.

Your metabolism is one of the biggest factors in your overall health and fitness. It’s your body’s engine – and it means everything when it comes to energy and weight loss. There are 2 primary aspects of your metabolism. There’s your resting metabolic rate, which refers to your body’s ability to convert calories into energy when you’re at rest, and then there’s your metabolic potential, or your ability to increase metabolism during exercise. Both aspects of metabolism play a significant role in your ability to produce energy, get fit, and lose weight. So both deserve special consideration.

We are going to discuss the above mentioned 2 primary aspects of your metabolism – Resting Metabolic Rate and Metabolic Potential

Let’s get started!

Resting Metabolic Rate

Also known as your basal metabolic rate, or BMR, this number is an indication of your body’s ability to burn calories and fat when you’re not even moving. Although it’s largely determined by genetics, there are a few things you can do to increase your resting metabolism for the long term.

Boosting your resting metabolic rate is huge. If you can burn more calories while at rest, then you can burn more calories when you’re active, and as we know, burning more calories equals shredding fat!

What are good ways to increase your basal metabolic rate?

Change Your Body Composition

The first thing you need to do is think about shifting your body composition to one which is lower in fat and higher in lean muscle mass. The more lean muscle mass you have, the higher your resting metabolism. This is why men often have an easier time losing weight.

Hey fatso!! Lose weight and burn more calories! It’s as simple as that and nothing really to add to this component.

Get More Serious About Weightlifting

Hands down, resistance training is the best way to increase your lean muscle mass. If the gym isn’t the place for you, try a great muscle-building, metabolism-boosting home workout program like P90X – you can’t go wrong!

Lifting weights can be tricky and intimidating at first go-around, but when you get into it and learn the basics, the benefits are second to none!

Support Your Muscle Building Efforts

What this means is that if you are working out, make sure to supplement properly with Protein, Muscle Building Enhancers, BCAAs, etc.
