The Missing Link In Weight-Loss (Part 1, Increasing Metabolism)

Simple Steps to Rapidly Burn Fat (Part 1)



"Are you ready to get that sleek, strong, defined look you have always wanted?"

When it comes to losing body fat and controlling weight, your metabolism needs special attention. Your metabolism controls how many calories you burn each day. When you burn more calories than you consume, your body weight must drop. However, when diets have you drastically restrict your calories, your metabolism plummets as well. This is because your body down regulates as a survival mechanism and you lose muscle.

When your metabolism dips, you have to eat less, just to maintain your weight and eat even less to continue weight loss. This is one reason that many "diets" only work short-term. You MUST learn to increase your metabolism and keep it up, as you lose body fat.

Metabolism is regulated by:

Resting metabolic rate (RMR) (calories burned by carrying out normal bodily functions)

Physical activity

Thermic effect of food (calories burned through processing food)

Here is the GOLDEN SECRET: "When you increase these three factors, you give the 1,2,3 knockout punch to slash your body fat."

Your resting metabolism rate (RMR) burns approximately 70% of your total calories per day.

Your physical activity and the thermic effect of the foods you eat make up the remaining 30% of calories burned.


Increasing activity and performing stimulating training sessions

Increasing lean muscle tissue

Eating adequate and proper nutrition

In this two-part article we will address the importance of simply moving more and stimulating your body with fat burning and muscle generating workouts.


There are always opportunities to move more during the day. For example you can:

Park further away from work, the store, or anywhere you are going

Take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator

Get up and walk during work or while at home inside or outside

Dance while and home or work, with or without music. "I know many of you love to dance!"

Basically, start noticing more opportunities to move. Motion just feels good; it gets the blood moving, clears the head, and keeps you limber and loose.

Every time you move, you increase calorie burn, and you may be surprised at how quickly these extra calorie-burning activities add up to your overall total. Just think, 10 minutes of activity 3 times a day, could easily burn an extra 120 calories per day, which leads to an extra pound of weight lost per month.

Think about that fact throughout your day and MOVE!

I have a client, named Megan who wanted to lose 60 pounds for her wedding. We basically did a plan of moderate circuit training, increased daily movement, and a slight reduction in calories. She lost 1-2 pounds per week and never felt deprived and looked amazing on her wedding day and is hooked on exercise!

Getting that body you want can be a fun and very rewarding journey. It does not have to be hard, it only has to be effective. To lose weight, simply take in fewer calories than you burn off.

Everyone has unique desires that bring them great excitement, joy and fulfillment. It is my intention to help people take rapid action and stay consistent in order that they may live their dream."No matter where you are in life, you have the power to re-invent yourself the second you choose to." -Jason Scott Johnson.Experience the new exciting new book on transforming your mind and body: Recreate Yourself: Simple Steps To Rapidly Burn Fat and Sculpt Your Body
