  • How to boost your metabolism & burn calories
    from food Some people can eat the same thing and absorb more calories from it than others she explains Gender Women naturally have slower metabolisms than men This is because men have more muscle mass which burns more calories says de Mille Consider that a light boned middle aged woman who weighs 54 kg will likely only burn about 1 000 calories a day in a resting state In contrast an active footballer will burn about 3 000 calories Rev Your Engine Speed up your basal rate with three proven ways to increase your burn Lift weights Building muscle will increase your basal metabolic rate but not as significantly as you might think De Mille explains that 500g of fat burns about two calories a day at rest while each 500g of muscle burns about six This means that even if you add 2kg of muscle you might look fantastic but you ll only be burning an extra 30 calories a day That s half of a small apple or two peppermint sweets Work out intensely Exercise that spikes your heart rate is proven to boost your metabolism well after your sweat session ends De Mille cites a study of athletes who after working out vigorously on bikes exhibited elevated metabolic rates for 14 hours This means the harder the run the more benefit you ll reap post exercise Track sessions hill repeats and tempo runs are the best workouts for afterburn Eat scheduled small meals Some evidence suggests that frequent mini meals will increase your rate because each time food enters your body your metabolism has to work to digest it Enjoying snacks throughout the day is great with one caveat eat more frequently but not more food Don t Believe the Hype These oft cited boosters are bogus and some do more harm than good Magic foods You may have heard that certain foods like cayenne boost your metabolism but the effects are minimal And unless you re ready to commit to drinking green tea 24 7 you re unlikely to see any benefit from what has mistakenly been touted as a weight reducing miracle food Caffeine Your morning cuppa does cause a very slight increase in metabolic rate but the effect only lasts about an hour Studies looking at weight loss and caffeine consumption are inconclusive experts say Yo Yo dieting If you restrict yourself to a 1 000 calorie a day diet for two months or more you can do some serious damage to your metabolic rate Your body goes into a protective mode and designates calories to preserve vital functions like circulation and breathing Once you go back to regular eating habits your metabolism may take weeks or longer to normalise making it extremely easy to regain any weight lost Common Sense Approach The main lesson When it comes to boosting your metabolism the best way to lose weight is by following this age old rule Burn more calories than you consume Experts agree that

  • Should You Deprive Yourself Of Calories During Training?
    fuelling and that is an important distinction for an endurance athlete I refer to nutrition as the daily calories you take in through your main meals spread throughout the day These calories provide the vast majority of your nutrients building blocks proteins and oils fats Fuelling refers to the calories that you consume during and immediately following exercise and the primary purpose of these calories is to fuel training Your successful performance during any workout recovery from the workout pursuit of optimal body composition and support of training in terms of stress reduction stems from fuelling This is the most important factor in nutrition for an endurance athlete to get right but it s also the one area in which most athletes underconsume relative to energy costs The primary fuel that your body utilises during training is glycogen a stored form of carbohydrate No matter how trained at utilising fat you become you will always utilise plenty of your stored glycogen in activity Failure to replenish those stores during and following activity activates a series of negative and highly stressful events in the body An accumulation of these events results in impaired recovery a possible retention of fat and long term loss of muscle and an increase in overall stress on your system The peer reviewed research focusing on carbohydrate deprivation during low intensity exercise shows that there likely is an increase of lipid fat utilisation So at first glance it would seem like a good decision to limit carbs during a long low intensity training session but here lies the problem of simply applying myopic scientific findings into real life training approaches As a coach I have experimented with fat deprivation in training before and ultimately have never seen positive long term results The overall stress created by reduced fueling has always resulted in a decline in training performance impaired recovery and an increased frequency of illness and loss of motivation for training In the big picture it does not add up to progressive performance improvements I recommend you take a longer term and global view of your training nutrition Fuel every workout by wrapping the sessions with carbohydrates get in your proteins oils and nutrients veggies and fruits and allow the accumulation of training load consistently applied to increase your endurance and ability to utilise fat as a fuel source You will be a better trained healthier and well recovered athlete for it Matt Dixon is an exercise physiologist former professional triathlete elite coach and the owner of the San Francisco based Purplepatch Fitness Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session The Perfect Two Week Taper How to do a proper plank FILED UNDER All Nutrition TAGS About advice Calories Energy fuel how to should Tips train Most Read Popular Now Most Watched The 1 Workout To Get You Ready For Ironman Exercises to improve your reactive strength How Pain Tolerance Affects Performance Five tips for avoiding bike Injuries

  • How exercise can help control stress
    your ability to control stress Yoga In yoga or yoga type activities your mind relaxes progressively as your body increases its amount of muscular work Studies have shown that when large muscle groups repeatedly contract and relax the brain receives a signal to release specific neurotransmitters which in turn make you feel relaxed and more alert Recreational sports Play tennis racquetball volleyball or squash These games require the kind of vigorous activity that rids your body of stress causing adrenaline and other hormones Not Just Any Exercise Will Do Don t try exercising in your office Outdoors or away from the office is the best place to find a stress free environment Even a corporate fitness center can trigger too many work related thoughts for some people Stay away from overcrowded classes If you work surrounded by people a big exercise class may be counterproductive Solo exercise may be more relaxing for you If however you work alone you may enjoy the social benefit of exercising in a group A lot depends on your personality and what causes stress for you Don t skip a chance to exercise Take a break every 90 minutes and you ll be doing yourself a favour Ninety minute intervals are a natural work break period And four 10 minute exercise breaks will burn about as many calories as a solid 40 minute session Work break exercises can be as simple as walking or climbing stairs stretching or doing calisthenics Controlling stress comes down to making the time to exercise You re worth it Related Stories Swim Tip Getting The Correct Hand Position Should You Finish A Bad Training Session The Perfect Two Week Taper How to do a proper plank FILED UNDER Training TAGS advice Energy exercise how to level Manage Stress Most Read
