Disregard Dieting Create Muscle To Burn Fat And Calories

You can attempt every one of the weight control plans on the planet, however you’ll improve in the event that you fabricate muscle to blaze fat. That is on the grounds that slimming down can bring about a lessening in your bulk.

Aerobic exercise is better than dieting because it does not cause muscle loss. But this there is more you should know about aerobic exercise that we will discuss in a moment.

Of course, no exercise will work on its own if you continue to eat unhealthy foods. Get that under control by simply eating healthy meals on a regular schedule. Your body needs a regular program so that it can properly utilize what you are providing it.

Start with a nutritional diet

If you eat a huge meal in the evening and skip breakfast and eat lunch on the run, your body will become confused. It will waver between feeling overfed and feeling starved. This confusion can lead to a variety of problems from fat retention to muscle loss as well as fluctuating energy levels.

Go back to what you were taught as a child. Make sure each meal covers the 4 food groups: grain, protein, dairy and fruits and vegetables. Forget fancy diets because they can leave your body wondering what to expect and how to utilize that altered food supply.

Aerobic activity has positive and negative results

With your dietary needs met, it’s time to exercise to lose body fat. As mentioned, aerobic exercise is one way to go because it does not cause muscle loss. The problem, however, is that you need to participate in a lot of aerobic activity to lose weight.

Cycling, running and walking exercises will burn calories, but they do not build much muscle. You need muscles because they burn a lot of energy all the time, not just when you are working out. They need to be constantly fed to maintain them. This is where strength training comes in. These are designed to build muscle which ultimately results in a higher resting metabolic state.

Amazing research results

Researchers have discovered that a test group who participated in a 20-minute circuit strength-training session burned 25% as many calories after their exercise as they did during it. They also discovered that such exercise elevated the resting metabolic rate for more than 12 hours after the exercise.

This means that long after working out, the benefits of the strength training were still being felt.

If you work to build muscle as part of your fitness plan, you will burn more fat and calories. And, you will burn them all day long, possibly even up to your next workout.

According to Tufts University, the University of Maryland and the University of Alabama, a strength training program that builds three pounds of muscle also increases the resting metabolic rate by 6-7% in both men and women.

Muscle building exercises work in three ways to reduce body fat.

  1. The exercises themselves burn calories while you are doing them.
  2. Your body continues to burn extra calories after you stop exercising to replenish your used energy resources.
  3. Your burn calories in your sleep because of the increased resting metabolic rate that is caused by your strength training exercises.

If you want to shed those extra pounds, forget dieting. You can build muscle to burn fat all day long, even when you are not working out.
