Why you are not losing fat pounds?

You watch what you eat and exercise every day, but you still look porky in a swimsuit. What is the story? Our fat storage capacities and metabolic rates were not created equally. While some people can manage their weight easily, others have to struggle throughout their lives. Variations in muscle mass and metabolic rate account for some of these differences.

Muscle is a highly metabolic tissue. If you have more muscle, then you will burn more calories during the day. Your activity levels during the day also make a difference. If you move regularly- even if it is just to fidget in your chair- you will burn more calories than if you sit motionless.

You can burn more calories if you increase your muscle mass. You will be amazed at the progress you will make if you go to the gym and lift weights just two or three days a week. Also, become more active throughout the day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park an extra block from wok. At home, get up to change the TV channel, rather than using the remote control. Do this, and you can turn yourself into a calorie-burning dynamo.
