For many people, is an elusive beast. They know that it’s possible and have seen it in others, but have yet to find the way to get it going for themselves.
Luckily, I’m going to let you in on 5 tips that will help you boost your metabolism and finally get the body you desire:
#1. Burn fat at the supermarket by shopping full. Many people make the mistake of going to the supermarket hungry. When you do that, you’ll be more prone to buy junk and foods that you shouldn’t be eating. By doing that, you’ve already set yourself up for failure before you’ve even begin dieting. If bad foods are around your house – you’ll eat them. So don’t buy them at the supermarket, and keep them out of your home.
#2. Sprint. High intensity interval training has been shown to boost and improve your bodies metabolism. What you do is sprint for 50 meters or 55 yards, and rest for 30 seconds and repeat 4-8 times depending on your fitness level. The cool thing about this exercise is not only will it help you lose fat, but it will also give you a strong butt.
#3. Swim. Swimming is one of those things that everyone knows is amazing but everyone is reluctant to talk about. It is excellent for a few reasons. For one, it is one of the highest calorie burning activities that a human being can participate in. It also strengthens you while relaxing you at the same time. And lastly, knowing you’re going to be in your bathing suit is a great motivator to get into great shape.
#4. Hang out with fit people. Peer pressure affects all of us, and hanging out with fit people and emulating their lifestyle is a great way to ensure that you’ll get in amazing shape. When you are with people who are eating healthily and exercising – chances are that you will as well.
#5. Keep trying. The most important tip that I can give you is to keep trying. Even if something doesn’t seem to be working in the beginning or you’re frustrated, you need to just keep moving forward.
