Wouldn’t it be wonderful if when you gained a few pounds you could simply find the dial on your metabolic thermostat and turn it up? As you turn the dial you would burn off the weight you gained. If only it were that easy.
Well new research reveals some interesting info about how we burn calories and why some of us store more than we burn.
This new information can help you increase your metabolic power, burn more calories, and lose more weight (not to mention reverse the aging process).
So how can we avoid ending up old and fatter?
The answer lies in one word:- mitochondria, the power in your cells. We know that oxidative stress is primarily a by-product of burning calories and oxygen inside your mitochondria to create energy.
As we use oxygen, around 5 percent results in the production of free radicals. These damage the mitochondria, which will lead to impaired energy production, this causes a reduction in your metabolic power and thus your ability to burn calories.
But the good news is that you can reverse the damage that’s been done to your mitochondria and in the process turn up your metabolic fire. That’s exactly what this program does.
As an metabolic exercise physiologist, I have created this program to increase the size, number and efficiency of your mitochondria (what could arguably be called your ‘fat burning cells’ this type of training helps your body become more effective at taking in oxygen, which in turn makes the muscle cells produce more mitochondria and makes the mitochondria you have more efficient.
The end result is you burn more calories, not only when you exercise but when you are at rest as well. It increases your metabolic fire. The rate at which your mitochondria transform food and oxygen into energy is called your metabolic rate. And it is determined by two factors:
- The number of mitochondria you have
- How efficiently they burn oxygen and calories.
The more mitochondria you have and the more efficiently they burn oxygen –> the faster your metabolic rate –> the easier it is for your body to burn calories –> the more energy you have.
Fortunately, you have the ability to dramatically influence both of these factors. The answer is what this system is all about and what makes JOIN JJ Weight Loss so unique.
To understand how you can increase your metabolic power, you first need to understand how the mitochondria work and how they burn calories. Then you must learn what can go wrong and slow down your metabolism.
Once you have identified the causes of mitochondria problems, you can fix them and learn how to give yourself a metabolic tune up. There you can burn more calories easily and more efficiently, making it much easier to lose weight.
Your mitochondria are the parts of your cell that convert calories and oxygen into energy. The more you have and the more efficient they are, the more calories you can burn both when exercising and AT REST
One of the reasons yo-yo dieting doesn’t work is because you lose mitochondria and replace it with fat. When this happens you cut your metabolic power in half.
You need to engage in a specific type of program that is individually prescribed to improve the number and efficiency of your mitochondria if you want to keep weight off.
When you undergo weight loss by increasing your mitochondria number and efficiency, your demand for calories goes up. This means you will be able to increase your calorie intake substantially and keep your weight off effortlessly!
