Eat What You Like and Still Lose Weight


Did you say there's a way I can eat what I like and still lose weight? Is that even possible? Is there really a way I can lose weight without counting calories, carbs, fats, and without doing all the other stuff that these diet experts tell me?

Yes there is. First of all, to put it bluntly, diets just don't work at all for long-term weight loss. The main reason why diets don't work is because they take you out of your comfort zone. Diets say things like "Okay put down the cheeseburgers & fries and start eating rice cakes all day."

Now the all new popular Rice cake diet by "Dr. Whoever" may work just great while you're on it but how long can you just eat just rice cakes. Basically, the amount of weight you lose on a diet is equal to the amount of time you're willing to put up with the diet's silly restrictions.

The worst part about being on a diet is the period right after you finish the diet. Most people tend to gain all their weight back and more after a diet because they go back to eating even more of the regular foods they liked in the first place.

Being on a strict diet for any period of time only increases your cravings for the food you loved in the first place. It increasing your cravings to a point where you overeat so much that you gain weight.

To eat the foods you like and still lose weight you simply have to increase your metabolism. Your metabolism is your body's fireplace. This fireplace will burn all that ugly body fat off you if operate it correctly. Here are some (6) simple ways to increase your metabolism:

1. Eat More!
That's right. Instead of eating 1-3 big meals a day try eating 5-7 smaller meals a day. Remember your body's metabolism is like a fireplace. Think about this way: when you eat 1-3 big meals you are basically putting a real big log on your fireplace and anytime you put too much on a fire it goes out.

When you feed yourself small meals spaced about 2-3 hours apart during the day you are putting small pieces of wood on your fat-burning fireplace. These small meals keep your fireplace burning throughout the day.

What happens when you don't put any wood on a fireplace? It goes out right? The same thing happens when you eat less than 3 meals a day. Waiting 4-6 hours between meals is too long, to keep your fireplace going remember to eat SMALL meals every 2-3 hours.

Just eat enough in each meal to satisfy you and not so much that you fell full.

2. Build Muscle
Did you know?
* That just 1lb of muscle burns off a pound of fat every 70 days!
* 3lbs of muscle will burn off a pond of fat every 23 days
* 5lbs of muscle will burn a pound of fat every 2 weeks.

Building muscle doesn't mean you have to start Bench pressing, squatting, or buying fancy equipment. To build muscle you can do simple bodyweight exercises like pushups, crunches, and bodyweight squats.

Walking up steep hills at a moderate to fast pace will build muscle in your legs. All it takes is 10-20min a day 2-3 times a week with weights or your own bodyweight. Don't worry about what the scale says when you put a few pounds of muscle.

Good-looking muscle weights more and is more dense than ugly body fat. If you put on five pounds of muscle it will seem like you lost 5-10lbs.

3. Become a lil' active
Notice that I said become a lil' active. By adding just a little bit of physical activity to your regular daily routine can increase your metabolism. Getting more active doesn't mean you have to sign up at a gym and take tae-bo or start participating in marathons regularly! There are many ways that you can easily become a little more active to lose weight.

For example:

* When you go to a store-instead of trying to get the best parking spot take the worst one all the way at the back of the parking lot so you have to walk more.

* Throw away your TV remote & get up to change the channels.

* Stop using the elevator. Take the stairs or at least take the stairs half way up.

These are just a few examples of ways that you can start adding a little physical activity to your daily routine. It may not seem like much in the beginning but all the extra calories you burn by doing these little activities adds up to you losing more weight.

Could you save gas by walking to certain locations or is it possible that you can ride a bike to certain locations instead of driving? Just be creative and start thinking about how you can gradually add some extra physical activity your daily routine.

Don't be a couch potato be a Fat-burning hot Tamale!

4. Have some Green Tea?
Studies show that green tea helps you lose weight by increasing your body's metabolism. Green tea helps you burn an extra 80 calories a day which adds up to 8lbs a year. For all you diet-conscienc people aout there green tea also helps to reduce cravings. 3-5 cups a day Safe and naturally

5. Workout in the morning
Morning workouts keep your metabolism elevated throughout the day. An elevated metabolism throughout the day only means that you'll burn calories and lose more weight. If your workout out at night you may still burn fat while you workout but as soon as you go to sleep your metabolism will slow down and you'll miss out on all the extra fat that you can burn during the day if you exercise in the morning. When you sleep your metabolic rate is at its slowest.

6. Eat breakfast
After your morning workout eat breakfast. Don't skip breakfast and wait until mid-morning or afternoon to eat, your metabolism will run slower causing you not burn any extra fat. Think about this way-Your metabolism is a fireplace that'll burn fat all day for you if you operate it correctly. When you eat breakfast you are basically throwing a logs onto that fireplaces to get it burning fat.

Eating breakfast will help stop those cravings you may have later on in the day and along with working out in morning eating breakfast will also keep you energized throughout the day

So lets review:
* Most Diets don't Work
* To eat what you want & lose weight, you have to increase your metabolism
* To increase your metabolism:
1. Eat More frequently
2. Build Muscle
3. GET ACTIVE
4. Workout in the Morning
5. Eat Breakfast
6. Have some Green tea
