Weight Loss Author Reveals 3 Secrets For Raising Your Metabolism
Date:2/3/2013

San Diego, Ca. (PRWEB) February 03, 2013

John Barrett Hawkins, author of Penitentiary Fitness: The Amazing Weight Loss Formula speaks before a group of overweight individuals and explains how weight loss works: "The word calorie is defined as a unit of energy, and the word metabolism describes the rate at which the body burns energy on an ongoing basis. Fat is the body's backup supply of energy. Weight loss occurs when you achieve a negative energy balance, which requires the body to burn fat for fuel. The faster your metabolism is, the more efficiently your body burns energy.”

In Penitentiary Fitness John Hawkins identifies three success secrets for raising your metabolism. He writes: "High intensity interval training spikes your metabolism. Your metabolic rate is determined by the mitochondria, the power plants within the body’s cells that mix food with oxygen to create energy. The goal of interval training is to raise the heart rate to 90% of its maximum capacity through short intervals of intense activity, such as sprinting. This type of exercise forces the mitochondria to become more effective at processing oxygen, which enables the body to burn energy at a greater rate, 24-hours a day.

John Hawkins also writes about the importance of doing resistance training to develop more muscle mass. He asserts, "For every pound of muscle you gain the body expends an additional 50 calories per day just maintaining itself. With resistance training you create micro tears in muscle fibers. Muscle growth occurs when the tear is repaired through a combination of proper nutrition and rest. This treatment also increases the metabolism, because your body burns more energy during sleep as it repairs the micro tears."

When asked about the role that diet plays in metabolism John Hawkins says, "A high-protein diet is best for stoking the metabolism. During digestion the body burns 30% of the protein you consume compared to 8% for carbohydrates and 2% for fats. This is known as the thermic response, which describes the amount of energy that is required to digest your food."
