The following quick weight loss tips
are dedicated to increasing your body
basal metabolism. According to Wikipedia “Basal
metabolic rate (BMR),
and the closely related resting
metabolic rate (RMR),
the amount of daily energy expended while at rest in a neutrally
environment, in the post-absorptive state (meaning that the digestive
inactive, which requires about twelve hours of fasting in humans).
The release of energy in this state is
sufficient only for the functioning
of the vital organs, the heart, lungs, nervous system, kidneys, liver,
sex organs, muscles, and skin.”
The genius of these quick weight loss
tips is that a huge percentage of
energy for basal metabolism is provided by body fat. Increasing BMR is
means to increase the amount of body fat you lose even as you sleep.
Quick Weight Loss Tips
We can increase BMR both long-term as
well as short term by specifically
targeting vital organs to provoke your metabolism.
Fat loss in the body occurs in the
presence of a hormone called Growth
Hormone or GH.
a protein-based peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell
regeneration in humans and other animals.
When there is a high concentration of
GH in the blood, your body tends to
switch on its fat burning capabilities.
It does this by allowing the
of body fat into fatty acids. These fatty acids are then released into
blood and become available for use as energy.
The following tips show ways of
naturally boosting GH in your body.
first and probably most effective
way to naturally increase GH is using
High Intensity Interval Training or HIITs.
Unlike the famous cardiovascular
exercises that have for a very long time
been recommended for weight loss, HIITs tend to engage your muscles to
This is where your muscles breakdown and
stronger and even bigger muscles.
This process also referred to as
Protein Turnover or AminoAcid Movement is a
high energy intensive process by the body. This process is of-course
the Growth Hormone.
After a HITT session your body
significantly increases its basal metabolism
for the next one to two days. The primary source for the energy
this time of elevated protein turnover is often body fat. Keep in mind
elevate the production of GH making body fat available for energy
is what you hear a lot of trainers call the
What science is finding out is that
the amount of fat burnt in “after-burn”
is much more than the amount of fat burn during a cardio workout of the
period of time.
So opting for HIITs rather than cardio
for weight loss will result to faster
Another technique that achieves
similar conditions in your body is
The physiology of short-term fasting
mimics that of HIITs. During high
intensity exercises you increase GH concentration in the body. This
when you fast. High intensity training results to higher increase
movement, an increase in the release of fatty acids in the blood and
consequently an increase in fat burning. All these also occur in
The primary difference is that HIITs
take between 1 and two hours to do;
while short-term fasting takes 24 hrs to get the same effect.
Fasting beyond 24 hrs at a time will
negate any benefits as you lose…
