Eat More Often to Boost Metabolism!
I have lost 13 lbs in the last 4 weeks by eating more often! This has worked much better than all my previous attempts at salad-only or other starvation type diets.
It seems that our bodies will practically shut down our metabolism if we let ourselves go hungry. It is our survival mechanism. So, by eating small, healthy meals whenever we feel hungry, it tricks our body into "thinking" that there will always be food available. As soon as we eat (or don't eat) breakfast, our body knows if it can afford to turn up (or slow down) its metabolism.
I have also finally given up on the idea that there is a magic pill, and that I don't have to exercise. Simply walking for an hour (not jogging or running!) every day (when possible) on a flat surface will help burn those calories and replace fat with muscle. Since I live in a rural area, I have opted to use my stationary bike, rather than walk.
It is important, when exercising, to keep your heart rate at 65%-75% of its target rate for at least a half hour. Fat will burn off at this rate, while higher heart rates will use up more muscle to fuel the exercise.
Of course, before starting any diet or exercise program, you should always consult your physician!
