Calories, Fat Storage And Weight Loss

Calories Versus Food Quality

You may now be wondering about how many calories you should eat, or whether you should be counting calories. Well, I don’t believe in calorie counting, especially for the average person who is trying to lose weight.

Here’s why: Calorie counting does not differentiate between healthy food and unhealthy food. It’s just a numbers game. Let’s say you are supposed to consume 2,000 calories per day in order to maintain a healthy body weight. Do you really think you will be healthy and maintain that healthy weight in the long-term if you eat 2,000 calories of sugary, carbohydrate-rich foods instead of 2,000 calories of nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables and complete protein each day?

10 Ways To Boost Your Metabolism

Primal Power Method Boost Your Metabolism

 10 great ways to boost your metabolism!

1)    Act like a caveman. By adopting a Paleo diet, which includes a good deal of protein. [Scroll down to the interview in this post for the definition and specifics of Paleo.] Digesting protein burns more calories than fat or carbs. So increasing your intake of protein increases lean body mass. Protein also keeps you feeling fuller, longer than carbs, so you can eat less and still be satisfied.

2)    Hydrate, hydrate, and hydrate some more. Water is essential for our bodies to work effectively. Dehydration triggers the body into conservation mode, which leads to a slowdown in metabolism. There’s another reason to reach for that extra glass of water: When you’re dehydrated, you’re more likely to eat more than when you’re sufficiently hydrated. The body often mistakes thirst for hunger.

3)    Pack on the pounds (of muscle). A pound of muscle burns 6 calories a day to sustain itself versus the 2 calories burned by a pound of fat. So 20 pounds of muscle will burn 120 calories a day, while 20 pounds of fat will only burn 40 calories. An 80-calorie difference that works for you long after your workout.
