It’s hard to over eat with a fast metabolism.
Sound too good to be true doesn’t it?
Think back to when you were a kid or one of your children now.
They eat & eat and their weight doesn’t budge.
This is down to them being more active.
But also because their metabolism is racing as the bodies & brains grow.
It is true that as we age…our metabolism slows down.
But studies suggest only 1-3% per decade!
So blaming getting older as the main reason you are getting fat – is not valid.
The good news is that you can actually speed up your metabolism.
The reason your metabolism slows is down to muscle loss.
If you regularly strength train….. you can prevent muscle loss and even build more.
And it’s this focus on building muscle in the gym, that allows you to eat more whilst staying or getting lean!
Sounds good now doesn’t it.
3 – 4 weight session a week will speed up your metabolism again.
And allow you to eat a few treats without it going straight on the scales.
Having a strong body with adequate muscle will be like having a secret fat burning machine stored in you.
Burning through the extra calories consumed on the foods you love.
This is why resistance & strength training is a no brainer.
If you don’t always want to live a “clean eating” lifestyle.
Get a though weights session in & enjoy the foods you want to eat.
And at the same time – still lose body fat, get stronger and fitter!
