19 Sep Tip 21- Fix your Broken Metabolism (Part 2)
Burn calories, don’t cut them. Muscle is the key to keeping a high metabolism. A low calorie diet (less than 1000/day) will destroy muscle. The only way to add muscle to your frame is to keep moving. It doesn’t have to be a heart pounding, sweat inducing power workout. A recent study on fidgeting shows that small movements can play a big role in weight loss. Most study participants burned an extra 850 calories/day (the equivalent of an 8.5 mile walk) just by being more active.
Today’s tip: Take the stairs. An extra 10 minutes of stair climbing a day will burn 12 pounds of fat a year.
Walk more. An extra 10 minutes of walking per day will burn almost 5 pounds of fat in 12 months.
