The Ultimate Ways In Which You Can Burn More Calories

BURNING TRUTHS

SKINNY PEOPLE HAVE FAST METABOLISMS
VERDICT SOMETIMES
"There are slim people with slightly low metabolisms who just don't eat very much," says Dr Atul Peters a bariatric and metabolic surgeon at Fortis Hospital,New Delhi."And there are heavy people with really high metabolisms who eat a huge amount."

LEAN TISSUE BURNS MORE CALORIES THAT FAT DOES,EVEN WHILE YOU'RE ASLEEP
VERDICT TRUE
"Your brain,heart,liver,and kidneys use a lot of energy,even when you're lying still," says Dr Peters. Muscle and GI tract don't use much at rest; fat burns practically nothing.You burn about a calorie at rest.A quarter of that is torched by muscle,and one fiftieth of it is burned by fat.

SOME GUYS CAN ONLY SLIM DOWN BY SLASHING CALORIES
VERDICT FALSE
"In 30 years,I've never seen anyone with truly low metabolic rate,"says Dr Micheal Jensen,M.D., an endocrinologist with the Mayo Clinic."People who think they need an 800-calorie diet often have resting metabolic rates of 1,500 calories." So why can't they slim down? They re often eating more calories than they realize.His fix: record everything for 2 weeks.Unhealthy trends may emerge.


CUTTING 500 CALORIES A DAY MEANS YOU WILL LOSE 500GM A WEEK 
VERDICT NOT QUITE
500gm of fat equals 3,500 calories,and you may loose it in a week,"But when you eat less,you lean tissue,so your basal metabolic rate goes down," says Dr Jensen.Surprise: you may gain more than a 500gm after a 3,500-calorie sugar stored as sugar cause you to retain water.
