At its most basic level, weight loss is about calorie balance. You must eat fewer calories than your body burns over a period of time…
So most diet-talk is about how to eat fewer calories. But what about the other side of the equation? How about getting your body to burn MORE calories?
Here are the five easiest ways to turn your body into a calorie burning machine:
1. Eat more
Yes, I know that you need to eat LESS to lose weight, but if you’re a typical dieter then you’ve probably eaten less and less on diet after diet to the point where you don’t know how to eat less except to stop eating altogether.
If you’re in that position, then your body has also learned to exist happily on very few calories by burning very few calories.
The fix? You need to eat more to get your metabolic processes going again. More protein, some fat and lots of veggies will do the trick. This ensures that you get the required vitamins, minerals, and calories your body needs to function optimally instead of just “survive”. Once you’re feeding your cells, you will be able to boost your metabolism and burn more calories.
