If you have been worried by your increasing body weight and you want your weight loss program to work, you have to be concerned not only for your weight loss pursuit but also for your general health and general well-being. This is a very important thing to know.
You may have heard of many weight loss advices of reducing the rate at which you eat or in other word-to diet off the excess fat from your body and to also go through some regular exercise routines to fast track your weight loss journey.
But the problem with this type of approach to weight and fat loss is that reducing your calorie intake would lead to starvation of your body, your body would not lose the weight it should lose but instead it would use up precious muscle in your body for the needed energy it is deprived of with your low calorie diet.
This would lower your metabolism rate thus causing greater muscle loss and once the diet was broken the original fat returned, and you would have greater chance of gaining even more fat.
Eventually with this type of approach, your body would become used to the diet and then you will reach a point where nothing was happening-your are not losing any weight and so you are worried.
So what is the right thing to do?
Strengthen your muscle, yes it works. Recent study have proved that training yourself to strengthen your muscle is the best way to lose weight and burn off excess fat without the side effect of starving your body in any way. This works because in increasing the functional muscle on your body, you are increasing your body's metabolic rate and with this increased metabolic rate, you tend to eat more calories which means that you won't need to starve anymore for you to loss weight and burn your body fat.
In a sense, fewer calories have to be cut back from our daily intake of food and successful dieting (provided that you eat the right foods) will become more likely.
You just have to maintain a constant routine of exercise like walking around your house each morning. With this, you are surely on your way to proper fat burning and permanent weight loss.
