SHIFT YOUR METABOLISM INTO OVERDRIVE
Why is it that some people can eat junk meal in and junk meal out for years and remain thin and fit, while others blow up after a single time eating out with their friends? The answer lies in the different metabolisms that different individuals have.
Metabolic rate refers to how quickly you consume energy to keep your body running. What we see in the scientific world is that the smaller the animal, the higher its metabolic rate is relative to its body weight. The same applies to humans. As humans lose fat, their metabolic rate increases relative to their new size. This creates a positive cycle – the more weight you lose, the easier it is to keep it off. On the flip side, the more fat you gain, the harder time you will have losing it down the road.
Now here lies the problem in your fitness goals: chances are, you were never walking around with a 6-pack prior to starting your fitness journey. Which means that to get down to that level of bodyfat, a level much less than the fat that you are naturally programmed to carry, you have to get to dietary and exercise extremes. Extremes that only need to be supplemented with SHIFT.
