Metabolism Fact and Fiction

Learn the truth behind the folklore and use it to your weight loss advantage.

1-Your body burns more calories digesting ice cold beverages and foods.
…5 or 6 ice cold glasses of water could help you burn about 10 extra calories a day.

2 Drinking the right amount of water can help you burn more calories.
-All of your body’s chemical reactions, including your metabolism, depend on water. If you are dehydrated, you may be burning up to 2% fewer calories.
Try sipping one glass before each meal and snack to stay hydrated.

3-Dieting drops your resting metabolic rate, making it harder to keep weight off .
Lose weight by cutting 250 calories a day and burning 250 calories per day through exercise. That will help you retain or even gain muscle while you lose a greater percentage of body fat.

4-Hot foods will fire up metabolism

..eating about 1 tablespoon of chopped red or green chile pepper, which is equal to 30 milligrams of capsaicin, resulted in up to a temporary 23% boost in metabolism.

5-Eating more protein will rev up your metabolism .
Studies show that you may burn up to twice as many calories digesting protein as carbohydrates.

6-Grapefruit won’t work miracles for your metabolism, but it can help you lose weight.
The reason: Its fiber and water fill you up on fewer calories, so you eat less at your next meal.

7-Lifting weights boosts your metabolism more than a cardio workout.
When you strength train enough to add 3 pounds of muscle, you increase your calorie burn by 6 to 8 percent, meaning that you burn about 100 extra calories every day.

8- Tea revs your natural calorie burn.
Just one large cup of oolong tea increased calorie burning by up to 10 percent, a boost that peaked 1 1/2 hours later. Green tea raised metabolism by 4 percent for 1 1/2 hours.

9-If you have limited time, exercise at a higher intensity for a metabolic afterburn.

People who exercise at very high intensities experience a post-exercise boost in resting metabolic rate that is larger and lasts longer compared with those who work out at a low or moderate level.

Diets. UGH. I know.

I keep tryin to lose weight too, but it keeps findin me. Ha.

There are 2 things you should never eat before breakfast: Lunch and dinner.

By the time I finally get thin…FAT will be in.

Apple and carrot cake count as a serving of vegetables.

And just remember the immortal words of Miss Piggy:
Never eat more than you can lift.

    Hey girlfriend, how did ya know? I am keeping this post around for the great tips. Now I drink the water and add lemon of course, does that hurt or help? I like the chili peppers. Love the protein. Grapefruit is okay. Tea is good. Now what did you say about weights? Dang! And exercising at high intensity? Does that mean I gotta get up and move more? Dang!

    I am so hungry for Carrot Cake.

    Well like Scarlett Ohara, I’ll think about it tomorrow.

    Hugs!

    Burning calories is easy. Go ice fishing without a hat. The exercise is exhilarating and tough, the cold air steals heat rapidly – especially through the head, and the fish you catch make a healthy choice for a low calorie meal. (if you don’t deep fry them)

    All great tips, Angel. I don’t have any problem with exercise or eating healthy foods. I have a problem drinking enough water. I’ve done the eight glasses of water a day thing and I slog around feeling like a bucket of water and belching a lot. LOL!

    That last picture though, a prawn a spud and what looks like aspharagus, is that it…. never mind i’ll wait for FAT to come back in. :)

  30. Debbie says:

    Great advice Angel. Just 30 minutes of power walking each weak will do you good too. Substitute sugar with something else, cut out as much fat as possible, eat Olive oil, olives, beans, whole grains,…

    Nice change, Angel. I have been working out harder and harder lately… partially to lose the last 4 or 5 pounds before winter, and partly to escape the political stress, try to improve sleep habits, etc.. Healthy eating with very limited fat intake and LOTS of fruits, veggies and water is truly the key supplement to that essential exercise factor you mention.

    Great job with very well selected images.

  44. Jackson-dieting tips says:

    Dieting motivation is all about will power and believing in yourself. If you don’t have any motivation it is very hard to succeed in dieting. People who achieve something and reach their ideal figure and weight do so because they have heaps of will power – those that fail don’t have tons of will power.
