Learn How Does Your Body Burning Fat? Are you dreaming to have the nice looking perfect silhouette, with a nice shape or an athletic body? Do carrying a goal to burn  40 calories quickly and easily in the following 15 minutes, without even breaking a sweat? Do you think is something that you would like to try? Great your answer is yes, so let me with you what you should do to this type of result:

Go into the bedroom. Open up the closet. Look inside. Does anything need to go to the dry cleaner? What about that pashmina you spilled New Year’s bubbly on? Toss it in the laundry bag. Straighten a few hanging items retold your sweaters so the inside of your wardrobe doesn’t look like you had to flee the paparazzi. Good job. Now have a seat.

Bravo!! You’ve just smoked 40 or more calories in less time than it takes to put on your makeup, all you did was neater up your clothes. Magic, right?

Well, not really. You see, your body is already primed to be a fat-burning machine. All you need to do to start changing your body’s shape is tune up that fat furnace and it revving at maximum efficiency so you’re burning even more fat while going about the mundane rituals of life.

What Is Metabolism?

This fat-burning magic comes from your metabolism, a word you’ve probably heard tossed around a lot but maybe don’t understand. What is metabolism? Simply put, it’s all the various chemical reactions that happen inside your body, 24-7, that you alive. It’s being turned into energy that energy being burned off to your hair growing, your heart beating, your liver pumping out bile, your lungs transferring oxygen into your bloodstream your intestines turning Amstel Light into the urine (not that there’s a huge leap there).

It’s the engine room of your person starship, your never-ending calorie burn. while you may imagine that the majority of your calories burned while you’re engaged in some strenuous activity like riding a bike, diving into a pool or jiggy with your honey, you’re actually burning most of your calories, well, just keeping the lights on.

In fact, think of metabolism as your caloric 401(K) program. It’s not going to give you instant gratification, like hitting a slot machine jackpot. It’s a long-term strategy, but it’s a thing: Invest in it you’ll slow, steady, effective returns that will you happy healthy years to come.

Now, like any long-term investment, it needs a little maintenance from time-to-time. Learn the smart ways to tweak your metabolism, improving your burn just enough to gain even more over the long haul. (Or to borrow what they say in financial circles, it’s time to work less your calorie burn and have your calorie burn start working you!)

Prepare a few surprises, starting with…

Why Burning Calories in the Gym Is a Waste of Time

Whoa—did we just say what you thought we said? That burning calories in the gym is “a waste of time?”

Well, stay with us here. Burning calories in the gym is great. But the energy you expand while you’re in the gym isn’t as simple as those tired old LED readouts on the treadmill might make it seem. See, we all have three “burns” that make up our metabolism.

Burn

Basal (resting) metabolism: Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) accounts 60 to 70 percent of your overall metabolism, and surprisingly, it’s the number of calories you burn doing nothing at all: lying in bed staring at the ceiling or vegging on the couch watching TV. As we said earlier, it’s fueled by your body’s inner workings—your heart beating, your lungs breathing, even your cells dividing.

Burn Two

Digestive metabolism, or thermic effect of food (TEF): Simply digesting —turning carbs into sugar and turning protein into amino acids—typically burns 10 to 15 percent of your daily calories. Digesting protein burns more calories than digesting carbohydrates or fat—about 25 calories every 100 consumed. Digesting carbohydrates and fat burns about 10 to 15 calories every 100 consumed.

So pause a moment to think about this: Between 70 and 85 percent of the calories, you burn every come from either eating or just hanging around doing nothing.

So, what about the other 15 to 30 percent?

Burn Three

Exercise and movement metabolism: This part of your metabolism includes both workouts at the gym and other more enjoyable physical activities (we call this exercise-activity thermogenesis, or EAT) along with countless incidental movements throughout the day (that’s non-exercise-activity thermogenesis, or NEAT).

So why is it so to lose weight just by exercising? Why are there so fat in the gym? The answer is simple. Exercise only targets 15 to 30 percent of your fat burn. Up to 85 percent of the calories you burn in a given have nothing to do with moving your body! Does that mean you should quit the gym? Well, not.

Why the Fatter You Get, the Fatter You’ll

Fat doesn’t just show up at your door day, rent a room and alone quietly. Fat loves company. Fat’s organizing a cocktail party where nobody goes home and everyone hangs out around your midsection. The more fat you open the door to, the harder it will be to stop even more fat from inviting itself in. Here’s why:

Your BMR or resting metabolism—the body system that eats up the majority of your daily calorie burn—is determined by two things: your parents, and the amount of fat versus muscle in your body. And while you can’t choose who your are, you can improve the other part of the equation and turn your resting metabolism up a few notches.

The problem is that fat plays its own role in the metabolic game, and it’s literally working to slow down your calorie burn. See, the term “fat and lazy” is pretty accurate from a scientific standpoint. Fat is lazy, on a metabolic level. It barely burns any calories at all. your body to support a pound of fat, it needs to burn a mere 2 calories a day. Muscle, however, is very metabolically active.

This is key and why muscle is your BFF in the fat-burning process: At rest, pound of muscle burns three times as calories every just to sustain itself—and a lot of those calories that muscle burns off come from fat’s units. That’s why fat hates muscle, and why you should love muscle because muscle is burning fat off.

Fat actually fights back, trying to erode muscle and fit more of its fat friends into your body. The real villain in this internal happening now, in your body, is a nasty character visceral fat. Visceral fat is the kind that resides behind the abdominal muscles, your internal organs.

And visceral fat works its mischief by releasing a number of substances, collectively adipokines. Adipokines include compounds that raise your risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, inflammation and heart disease. Visceral fat also messes with an important hormone adiponectin, which regulates metabolism. The more visceral fat you have, the less adiponectin you have, and the lower your metabolism. So fat literally begets more fat.

A study published in the Journal of Applied Physiology showed that those biologically active molecules that are released from visceral fat can actually degrade muscle quality which, again, leads to more fat. The solution?

More Muscle

After age 25 we all start to lose muscle mass a fifth of a pound of muscle a year, from ages 25 to 50, and then up to a pound of muscle a year after that—if we don’t do anything to stop the decline. And on top of a slumping metabolic rate, loss of muscle strength and mass are empirically linked to declines in the immune system, not to mention weaker bones, stiffer joints, and slumping postures. Muscle mass also plays a role in the response to stress. And further research is expected to show measurable links between diminished muscle mass and cancer mortality.
