We all want to know how to boost our metabolism, right?
Of course we do, because a fast-working metabolism can allow us to lose more fat, and feel a lot less guilty after we eat a ton of food.
A lot of people like to blame their slow metabolism on aging. "I wish I was 20 again so I could eat whatever I wanted", "being 40 sucks because my metabolism is so slow."
We've all heard or said those things.
The truth is that the metabolism slows down over time due to a decrease in lean muscle tissue. Remember, the more lean tissue your body has, the more calories your body will need to maintain its weight.
So what's the best thing you can do to keep your metabolism cranking?
LIFT WEIGHTS! Lifting weights and eating properly will increase lean muscle mass thus increasing your basal metabolic rate (how many calories your body burns at rest).
