Burn Fat Faster (BFF) every pound counts
Alan Choachoy (The Freeman) - April 5, 2014 - 12:00am

A common misconception among people is that our metabolism slows down as we grow older, causing us to gain weight faster.  But in reality, our metabolism is more directly related to our level of daily activity. The lesser activities we have, the slower our metabolism, and the faster it takes for us to gain weight.

 

Metabolism is our body's way of converting food into energy. We burn energy and calories when we are active. When we are not active, like when we are watching TV or sleeping, our body still burns calories and uses energy for breathing and healing. Remember that muscles burn more calories than fat. Thus, if we are overweight and we are not doing any activity, we burn fewer calories and our metabolism slows down.

 

Our goal here is to increase our metabolism by increasing our muscle percentage, so that it will burn more calories and fat even while at rest. Follow this simple METAFIT workout.
