I want 6 pack abs! Boost that metabolism!

We all want to get a six pack fast but getting a ripped midsection can seem like a thing of myth. we’re inundated with infomercials that tell us how easy it is to get a washboard stomach for three easy payments of $ 59.95. You may have even tried a few of these magic products and if you’re like most people had little to no success with them. Let me tell you that if there is a magic pill or machine that’s guaranteed to give you a flat stomach you probably have to qualify as a professional bodybuilder to get those shredded abs we see on TV. The truth about getting ripped abs is to remove the body fat around our midsection and rest of your body. If you focus on trying to boost metabolism you will see results slowly but surely. The beautiful thing about boosting your metabolic rate is that you burn fat even when you’re not working out.

Stay active: One of the easiest ways to immediately boost your metabolism is to get moving more often. If you have the choice to exercise in the morning or night (most of us do) then choose morning to kick start your metabolism. By working out first thing in the morning you do two things. First, you break your body out of its slow metabolism, sleep mode and force it to start burning fat. Secondly, you will continue to burn fat at a higher rate for the rest of the day because of the after burn effect of working out. Essentially, after burn is your bodies ability to continue burning fat long after youve left the gym.

Be sure to eat more, smaller meals more often. Typically, eating 5-6 small meals per day is ideal for keeping your metabolism at a high burn. Since we really don’t have to worry about where our next meal is coming from, unlike our ancient ancestors, it’s ok for our metabolisms to burn high all the time. Our bodies are programmed to slow our metabolism down if the time between meals stretches longer than about 4 hours. This is our bodies way of fighting starvation because our ancestors might need to go a day or two with out eating if they couldn’t catch food. So we trick our bodies into burning hot and inefficient all the time by eating meals frequently. This also helps to reduce cravings by keeping your blood sugar levels smooth. Remember, extreme dips in blood sugar cause our bodies to crave sugar, fat, and sometimes salt.

Here’s a tip indirectly boost your metabolism: Write down your goals and read them daily. Although the act of looking at your fitness goals will not burn any fat by itself, you will remind yourself of the “WHY” you’re doing what you’re doing. Maybe you’re going on a vacation to Hawaii this summer and you’d like to be in top shape and look’n good! Keeping your diet and fitness goals at the forefront of your mind will keep you motivated to hit the gym when you feel like sitting on the couch or ignore that extra slice of pizza at the office party!

If you want to get a six pack fast then do everything you can to boost your metabolism. Don’t try to be perfect just get moving. Just go for that run or walk on the beach or head to the gym. Don’t get bogged down in trying to formulate the perfect workout or diet plan before you start. Remember that action beats inaction even if the action is wrong. Why, because you can change an incorrect action but nothing will change if you never even try. So get out there and workout in the morning, eat more often than you did yesterday, and eat a lean protein with each meal. Do those things and you’ll produce results of some kind. Assess those results and then tweek things here and there until you achieve those rock hard abs.
