An Ideal Metabolic Pace for Weight Loss

92395524Weight loss is optimized by setting the  tone with healthy daily habits that focus on maintaining an ideal metabolic pace. If we were to balance the amount of energy we expend with the amount of “food” we consume and activities we perform, we may achieve an ideal metabolic rate for fat burning. If we understand that our bodies rely upon precision in the measurement of food and activities necessary, we may achieve optimal metabolic performance. Knowing that our lifestyles have an impact on our bodily systems, we are one step closer to understanding how to achieve the ideal metabolic rate for fat burning. Now, let’s imagine a possible ideal day.

A Morning Time Focused on Weight Loss with Proper Sleep and Diet

151595929We wake up after six to eight hours of peaceful, low- metabolizing sleep to snack on a “fuel” source such as, an egg and high fiber foods. This will allow your metabolism to speed up and to burn fat until “refueling” begins. So, you consume calcium-fortified foods and drinks, such as, milk and orange juice, to accelerate your metabolism.  In this way, you will properly support the morning activities of showering, dressing and getting on our way for other pressing chores.

Morning Time Physical Activities  to Boost Your Metabolism

Next is the workout. Ideally, a comprehensive workout occurs in the morning to raise metabolic activity to a fat-burning rate.  If this is not possible, consider a fast-paced jogging march, elevating your  knees to your  hips, for 23 minutes or more each morning. This will certainly speed up your metabolism for the daily events to come. If a morning workout is possible, you’ll enjoy a protein snack for metabolic enhancement prior to your workout and remind yourself of the benefits associated with exercise. Consistent weight training increases the resting metabolic rate by close to 10%. Aerobic (cardiovascular) activity–meaning any activity in which one foot is off the floor–for 23 minutes or more, three to six times a week, will undoubtedly increase your metabolism to help stimulate fat burning. Daily cardiovascular activity in which one foot is off the floor is ideal for 60 minutes daily, even walking.

Snacking For Metabolic Rate Maintenance

On the way to your next daily project, don’t forget a piece of fruit to maintain a proper “fuel” intake schedule.  When you arrive at your next stop, you’ll remember to stand up and walk for five minutes every hour to be in tune with a healthy metabolic beat.

Within four or more hours of breakfast, you may feast on the biggest healthy meal of the day, possibly including: lean beef, fish, white meat, chicken, tofu, or beans. Remember proteins are a basic metabolic enhancement. You can continue to snack on vegetables or fruits every three to four hours thereafter for metabolic boosts. Somehow, you also might want fit in two glasses of green tea or oolong tea to rev up the metabolism for a couple of hours.

Dinnertime Metabolics for Weight Loss

Soon, you’ll have an early light dinner since people do not require much “fuel” to sleep. You may wish to light a vanilla candle which is known to reduce food intake. After, you can plan your meals for the next day.

If you’re on a diet, you won’t drastically cut your caloric intake because this will have an adverse effect on your resting metabolic rate. Instead, you can schedule an appointment with a nutritionist to identify your appropriate caloric intake. This may be particularly important because  bodies require a certain number of calories to burn in order for body systems to function properly, including: breathing and heartbeats. You won’t forget the small stuff either. You might include red, green or chili peppers to add a temporary spike in the elevation of your metabolic rate by over 20%. By day’s end, you’ll have produced adrenaline to accelerate your resting metabolic rate. You’ll have selected foods that do not produce as much insulin as others because certain foods can create more insulin and slow the metabolic rate. Finally, a sound sleep awaits you, which results in a proper regulation of our resting metabolism.

And so ends a wonderful day of working with your metabolism to fuel your body, burn fat, and live life with energy and vitality. Let’s go ahead and do it all over again tomorrow!
