Weight Loss Tip

Today's weight loss tip is to eat 5 to 6 meals a day while cycling. Now, this lesson on how to lose weight quickly on eating 5 to 6 meals a day does not mean you can eat whatever you want, not at all.

Eating frequent meals and snacks keeps your metabolism burning at a much higher rate than people that only eat 3, 2 or even only 1 meals a day. Think about this for a second. Every time you eat your body produces heat and the heat accelerates your metabolism as it's breaking down your food. After digesting the food your body dips into your fat storages burning fat for energy. Eating smaller meals more frequently will have your body dipping into your fat storages a lot more aiding in weight loss. Not only that but keeping your body away from high blood sugar levels limiting fat storage.

Want to learn more on how to lose weight quickly? That is where cycling comes into play. Mostly, calorie cycling is having high days and low days and not keeping your calorie intake the same. What I have learned and what has worked best for me is cycling the carbs and keeping your protein and fat intake the same.

Having high and low days with carbohydrates increases your metabolism while burning calories and staying elevated on low days. Just remember that your metabolism try' s to maintain your homeostasis meaning a resting metabolic rate, and keeping thing the same so by cycling your calories your metabolism has to keep guessing resulting in more calories burned while doing absolutely nothing.
