NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — If your weight loss has plateaued and no matter what you do you just can’t seem to lose weight your workout might be to blame! If you’re trying to lose weight and boost you metabolism you need to work out in a specific way in order to accomplish this quickly.
WHY should you care about boosting your metabolism?
Boosting your metabolism makes losing weight faster and easier but a sluggish metabolism can STOP your weight loss dead in its tracks no matter how hard you try!
What you need to know…
Keep in mind that your diet (what you eat or don’t eat) is responsible for 90% of your weight loss and your workout makes up the last 10%.Specifically if your over 40, female (this counts for males too) and have been more than 10 pounds overweight and have struggled with high blood sugar levels which cause you to store excess belly fat .
IF your weight loss is stuck, shelf your current work out and do METABOLIC workouts instead!
Here are three things you need to know when you’re trying to boost your metabolism.
There are tons of different workouts out there BUT NOT ALL OF THEM are geared for weight loss and reshaping. MOST are geared to build muscle, and can actually SLOW your metabolism and halt your weight loss efforts due to the stress they cause on your body which may cause your cortisol and insulin levels to rise which creates the prefect storm for weight gain and makes storing belly fat a disaster.
