What if we told you can have better control a key part of your metabolism – how many calories you burn?
Here are 3 ways – for better long-term outcomes:
- Choose Protein First. If you consume 30 grams of protein, it takes about 30 calories just to process the protein. That is much more than it takes to process carbs or fat. So shift your diet by replacing some fat and carb grams with protein grams.
- Add muscle – activity plus protein. You add muscle by doing exercise that challenges your muscles and then getting good amounts of good protein. (See Note at Bottom). Who cares about muscle? We all do, because muscle burns most of the calories you burn. Body fat burns very little. More muscle = more calories burned, every day.
- Improve Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). But…what’s THAT?
 DO consult your doctor before starting a new exercise program, start very gradually to avoid injury or other health issues.
It’s the number of calories that we burn at rest to “keep the engine running.” It is actually most of the calories we burn! Our body burns calories even when we are sleeping in order to keep our organs functioning. So, even when we are resting, we are still burning calories. The majority of those resting calories are burned by your muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories that you burn at rest.
Important Take Away: You can improve your lean muscle mass with high-quality protein and exercise.
Remember! High Quality Protein, like UNJURY® Protein + Exercise = Lifelong Success.
