Accelerate Fat Loss & Get Fit for Life in 8 Easy Steps

renew your life cover2. Increase your aerobic exercise. Aerobic exercise trains muscles to burn fat and increase metabolism. Aerobic exercise means exercising with oxygen, not being winded or out of breath. These types of exercises, which are fairly gentle and nonstop, change your metabolism and also train your muscles to burn more fat. Here’s a key point to keep in mind. Muscles burn fat ONLY in the presence of oxygen. For example, if you’re jogging with your husband and he’s breezing along and singing a song, and you’re so out of breath that you can barely put two syllables together, he’s burning fat but your fat-burning mechanisms have shut down. Muscles burn two kinds of fuel—sugar (glucose) and fat. Your muscles really do prefer to burn fat because it’s more efficient; there’s more of it so it lasts a long time and it produces lots of energy.

Does that mean you shouldn’t do high-intensity sprints every so often? No, as I’ll explain below, but you must make aerobic exercise part of your fitness program at least 5 days a week if you want to lose fat and tone up. By using the big muscles of the thighs and buttocks in an activity that is steady and nonstop (such as cross-country skiing, bicycling, rowing, walking, and hiking), and makes you breathe deeply but doesn’t make you out of breath, you’re supplying oxygen to the muscles, which promotes fat burning in the muscles and makes you burn more food calories.

Accelerate Fat Loss & Get Fit for Life in 8 Easy Steps

renew your life cover1. Increase your muscle mass. Muscle burns fat. It’s that simple. Exercise increases muscle, tones it, alters its chemistry, and increases the metabolic rate. When you exercise you actually continue to burn calories even when you’re sleeping but you must exercise correctly to get the best results. Before I describe the best exercises to lose fat and increase metabolism, let’s briefly explore why lean muscle tissue is so important. 

As I highlight in my world-renowned Complete Power Package consisting of 14 titles, Renew Your Life: Choose to Live Fully, more muscle means a faster metabolism because muscle uses more energy to exist than fat. Because muscle is a highly metabolic tissue, it burns five times as many calories as most other body tissues, pound for pound. In other words, muscle requires more oxygen and more calories to sustain itself than does body fat. When you have more muscle mass, you burn more calories than someone who doesn’t, even when you’re both sitting still, which is why people who build muscle have an easier time maintaining a healthy weight. They’re simply more efficient calorie burners.

If you increase muscle mass, you increase the number of calories your body is using every moment of the day, not just during exercise, but also at work, play, and even when sleeping. The addition of 10 pounds of muscle to your body will burn approximately 500 extra calories per day. You would have to jog 6 miles a day, 7 days a week to burn the same number of calories. Ten extra pounds of muscle can burn a pound of fat in one week (a pound of fat is 3,500 calories)—that’s 52 pounds of fat a year! Want to know how to increase your lean muscle tissue and my favorite fitness tips that I currently teach clients worldwide and also previously taught to students, staff, and faculty at UCLA for 30 years?

The Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple Cider Vinegar Nutrition Facts

A healing agent since Biblical times, apple cider vinegar is now known as a superfood by many nutritionists and other health professionals around the globe. It is said that Hippocrates, the Greek “father of medicine," relied on apple cider vinegar as a standard remedy. The current scientific literature and users of apple cider vinegar, which is rich in enzymes and potassium, have corroborated its ability to help in the healing of high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, acid reflux, achy joints, allergies, vaginitis/yeast infections, sore throats, and many other conditions.

There’s a difference between the raw, organic, unfiltered and undistilled apple cider vinegar sold primarily in health food stores and the distilled, clear vinegar that turns up on grocery shelves. The latter lacks the “mother of vinegar” — the cloudy sediment that proponents say contains most of the health-promoting enzymes, acetic acid, bacteria, minerals, and other nutrients from the apple, but which lacks “eye-appeal” to the general public.
