Discover New Methods for Losing Weight


Many people believe that if they start exercising they will become hungrier and tend to eat more and fear that they will put on weight due to the fact that they will be consuming more food. What they don’t realize is the fact that your blood sugar levels determine when you feel hungry. When your blood sugar drops you will begin to feel hungry and seek food to increase the level again.

A proper exercise program and eating plan helps to normalize fluctuations in your blood sugar levels and in doing so you won’t get that starving feeling as often. Strength training exercise activates your muscles which in turn burns fat rather than carbohydrates so this reduction in the burning of carbohydrates maintains your blood sugar levels in a more balanced manner.

By raising your metabolic rate (the rate your body burns fuel) from proper exercise the cells of your body will burn oxygen more efficiently and that in turn helps you to use the nutrients from your diet more effectively. It also helps to eliminate waste products and in doing so you are getting better nourishment from the foods that you eat.

By getting more nourishment you don’t require the same quantities of food to feel fulfilled. This makes it less likely you will suffer from unstoppable food craving that can lead to bingeing and eating unhealthy foods.

Another benefit of strength training exercise is the fact that you are increasing your body temperature and this will help to mobilize the fat in your body that is used for energy rather than the food. Your resting metabolic rate will also be raised after strength training exercise for a considerable amount of time effectively helping you to burn more fat and improving the ratio of body fat percentage in your body.

No other type of exercise will do this as effectively as strength training. No low intensity exercise such as walking, jogging or cycling can maintain muscle tone and raise your metabolism. Modern exercise programs are now concerned with what happens after an exercise session where as old fashioned exercise was only concerned about what happened during an exercise session.

The other part of the puzzle is your eating plan. The new way of eating works with 4-6 small meals every 2-3 hours and really cranks up your metabolism. Each meal needs to have 20-30 grams of protein and the balance of raw and cooked vegetables. A small amount of complex carbohydrate in the form of rice, pasta or sweet potato completes the meal.

The new way of losing excess body fat works on the principal of burning more calories each day rather than reducing calories. This is a much more effective way and also focuses on more rather than less as with dieting, more food, more energy, more activity, and more effective body fat loss.

The old way worked on less, less food, less energy, less movement, and less enjoyment out of life. This way is much better, try it and see for yourself.
