How To Burn More Calories

There’s Nothing Wrong With Your Metabolism

So you want to burn more calories? The media will tell you that some people just have faster metabolisms, but this is false. Your body isn’t broken. Your body isn’t slow. There isn’t anything wrong with your body or your metabolism. In fact, the Oxford dictionary defines metabolism as the chemical processes that occur within a living organism in order to maintain life.” (Oxford Dictionary). Metabolism is a broad term to describe everything that happens inside your body to keep you alive. It doesn’t mean that you cannot lose weight.

Weight loss is all about eating less calories than you are burning. This can become difficult though when you are only burning a limited number of calories and have to reduce it even further. So what do you do? You need to increase your calorie burn. How do you do it? By doing the two things listed below.

1. Move More

It’s simple. To burn more calories, the first thing that you need to do is move more throughout the day. Your workout is only about 10% of your daily calorie burn. Think of it this way… Your workout is only one hour. It’s what you do in the other 23 hours that really matters for your calorie burn. If you spend most of the day sitting, invest in a stand up desk. When you are taking a break, make sure to go on a walk around the building. Pick the restroom that is furthest away and park at the back of the parking lot. Purchase a movement tracker and make sure to get 12,000 steps every day. MOVE MORE.

2. Build More Muscle

Now that you are moving more, build more muscle to move with. Muscle is a high maintenance tissue, meaning that it requires more energy (calories) to survive. This will work to your benefit because the more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn doing everyday tasks. Walking will burn more calories, brushing your teeth will burn more calories, even making dinner will burn more calories. THIS is why men tend to have a higher average calorie burn than women, and thus seem to be able to lose weight faster. They have more muscle and just naturally burn more calories doing the same amount of activity as someone with less muscle.

Build More, Burn More

In order to burn more calories everyday, you need to move move and build muscle. It’s that simple. When your goal is weight loss, it’s important that you burn as many calories as you can. These two factors will help you get there. For more help reaching your goal, speak with one of our trainers today!
