Metabolism: The whole range of biochemical processes that occur within a living organism. Metabolism consists of anabolism (the buildup of substances) and metabolism (the breakdown of substances). The term metabolism is commonly used to refer specifically to the breakdown of food and its transformation into energy.
Finding out your metabolic type could be the biggest step you make towards having the body you’ve always wanted.
That’s because different types of metabolisms respond differently to weight-loss strategies… and if you’re using the wrong strategy with the wrong metabolism type you’re not going to get anywhere.
That’s why diets that seem to work for your friends might do nothing for you: you have different types of metabolisms.
This metabolism type test will give you your exact metabolism type, as well as your #1 fat burning blocker that’s stopping you from losing weight.
Your #1 fat burning blocker is unique to your body and your situation – and is what’s stopping you from losing belly fat and burning away unwanted pounds.
When you try to lose weight without fixing your #1 fat burning blocker, it’s like trying to ride a bicycle with the brakes constantly on – you’re not going to get anywhere!
That’s because if you haven’t addressed your #1 fat burning blocker, your body will actually be fighting your efforts to burn more fat and lose more weight.
The end result? You wind up discouraged, frustrated, and in the same exact spot you were before… or even worse.
That’s why it’s so important to find out your exact metabolic type, and your exact #1 fat burning blocker.
Because if you don’t, then no matter how much effort you put in, how many times you deny yourself your favorite foods, and how many calories you cut every day… you’re just not going to get anywhere.
I know how unbelievably frustrating that is. I know how painful it is. And I don’t want that for you.
So take this quiz right now and find out your metabolic type and your #1 fat burning blocker instantly, and take the biggest step towards the body you’ve always wanted!
Lets start with exercise and how much time you should be designating to your work out regimen. Take a look at the time you are spending working out and taper it to about 3-5 days a week, maximum, with an hour at a time - as a maximum. Really, 30-45 minute workouts are more than enough. Keep in mind that resistance and weight training is the best way to enhance metabolism, as muscle burns more than fat - building muscle this way may be a good way to help repair your metabolism, as muscle content requires more calories than fat. Cardio workouts should be considered secondary and can be added in as part of the 3-4 day regimen, but a combination is best.
Fixing a damaged metabolism: Eating habits
The next step is to look at your caloric intake, and be prepared to increase this slowly. It is important to take this slow as to not gain weight back too rapidly, which will discourage you and may lead to another cycle of restricting your intake. Try to calculate how many calories you are taking in and add about 50-100 calories a week. The goal will be to have added about 500 calories after the course of a few weeks. As your body starts to be fed correctly, your body will be able to slowly lose weight once again. Keep it mind this takes some time and patience, but resist the temptation to over exercise and decrease your calories. The goal is to feed your body enough to allow your hormones to start to work efficiently once again. The thyroid hormones will increase, leptin levels will no longer think you are in starvation mode and muscle tissue will increase.
