Your Metabolism… Another piece to the puzzle
July 21, 2010

Is your metabolism running at a snail’s pace? A very important bit of knowledge you need to know is; just what is your metabolism? It’s commonly misunderstood, and understanding your metabolism is the only way you can start to speed it up. Yes, you need to know who your enemy is and how he operates before you can defeat him! Or in your case, making your metabolism work for you and not against you.

What is Metabolism?

“Metabolism is the rate at which your body burns its way through calories just to keep itself alive–to keep your heart beating, your lungs breathing, your blood pumping, and your mind fantasizing about the Caribbean while crunching year-end accounting figures. Your body is burning calories all the time, even while you’re reading this sentence. The average woman burns about 10 calories per pound of body weight every day, the average man, 11 calories per pound.

There are three main types of calorie burn that happen throughout your day…

Calorie burn #1: The thermic effect of eating.

Between 10 and 30 percent of the calories you burn each day get burned by the simple act of digesting your food. Now that’s pretty cool–satisfying your food cravings actually makes you burn away calories. But not all foods are created equal. Your body uses more calories to digest protein (about 25 calories burned for every 100 calories consumed) than it does to digest fats and carbohydrates (10 to 15 calories burned for every 100 calories consumed)…

Calorie burn #2: Exercise and movement.

Another 10 to 15 percent of your calorie burn comes from moving your muscles, whether you’re pressing weights overhead, running to catch the bus, or just twiddling your thumbs…

Calorie burn #3: Basel metabolism.

This one’s the biggie. Your basal, or resting, metabolism refers to the calories you’re burning when you’re doing nothing at all. Sleeping, watching TV… –your burning calories all the while. In fact, between 60 and 80 percent of your daily calories are burned up just doing nothing…” Fat Wars

Knowledge is power.
April 28, 2010

Just like if you don’t have the right tools for the job; it is near to impossible to complete the task on time or up to code. Knowledge works the same way. Unfortunately most of us fall victim to a system driven by people determined to get rich. Believe me fitness and diet programs are big business, they make millions off the masses jumping on and off fad diets and ridiculous home exercise equipment. With just a bit of knowhow its incredible how you can turn your life around, and at the same time keep your money in the bank!
