Importance of a Healthy Diet

When it comes to mastering your metabolism it should come as no surprise that diet comes first. It comes second and third too! Making smart changes to your diet is the quickest way to start shifting your metabolic gears in favour of burning fat fast.

Follow these tips and no matter where your metabolism is now, it will quickly adjust to where you'd like it to be. 

Stay at a Caloric Deficit

The first pillar of a successful diet plan is to be sure that you're not overeating calories. Now before you get nervous, this doesn't involve you having to do much math at all. Instead we're borrowing an old trick used by bodybuilding and fitness enthusiasts. Take your weight, in pounds, and multiply it by 10. This is the area you want to keep your calorie consumption in. 

If you weigh 220lbs that means you will eat 2200 calories a day. 175lbs? 1750 calories a day. It doesn't get much simpler than that.

Never Let Yourself Go Hungry 

Now this may come as a shock, but to keep your body's metabolism burning, it is very important to eat often. There's no quicker way to cause your metabolism to shut down then to start starving yourself. Your body shifts into a low metabolic state when you go for longer periods of time without eating as a survival mechanism. Unless you use some fairly complicated dietary strategies when this happens you will retain fat. You may even pack more on as you lose muscle!

Your goal is going to be to eat five or six meals a day, but to still eat in the area of your caloric number we determined above. By never getting hungry you are also setting the mental stage to be able to maintain our fat loss program. Believe me, experience has shown personally and with successful clients that if you avoid the feeling of restriction day in and day out you are much more likely to stick with any diet. This one included.

The net caloric deficit will make sure you are losing weight. Your metabolism being high from eating five or six meals a day will aid the fight to be fit by taking off extra fat all day every day.

Eat The Same Meals Often

If you're worried about having to count calories to keep yourself in the fat burning zone, there's an easy solution. Eat the same meals often. This removes over thinking the diet and impulse eating. I'd suggest coming up with two or three breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Rotate them as necessary to avoid being bored. No this isn't eating whatever you'd like. But it is a diet that will quickly get you the body of your dreams!

Pick A Free Day

One day a week eat anything you choose, within reason. Not only will this keep you sane, but it will act as an extra safety net in making sure your metabolism hasn't frozen. Sundays seem to be the favourite choice of many, but pick any day that best fits your schedule. Only eating clean six days a week reaffirms that this is an eating plan that doesn't require an iron discipline to follow. You always have Sunday to look forward to!

Follow these four tips and you will be amazed at how fast the fat melts away.
