How to Burn More Calories when Sitting on the Couch

A little attention to your muscles can make a big difference to your health and weight

The modern obsession with obesity is doing us a disservice in ways we may not even realise. It puts the focus on how much we weigh, our fat levels or our paunch. We focus on what we dont want. Its a classic mistake that any successful entrepreneur, chief executive or self-help guru will warn against.

.

So turn the tables and focus on what you do want. You dont have to ramp it up and set a goal to run a marathon or even a 5km.
It  a nicer way for people to work  towards increasing something,  rather than reducing something

.

The opposite of fat isnt thin: its toned, healthy and strong. Thats something worth aiming for, no matter what size you are or want to be.
It is generally a nicer way for people to work  towards increasing something, such as muscle strength or endurance, rather than reducing something such as obesity level, says Dr Sarahjane Belton, a lecturer in physical education at Dublin City University and former Ireland rugby international player.

.

Muscle-fat interaction is a complicated process acting at multiple levels, but research is starting to show that targeting improved muscle function strength and endurance  can be a realistic and beneficial strategy for targeting obesity.

.

Resistance training can help to strengthen your bones as well as your muscles

.

When fitness instructors meet new clients they assess what they call the five health-related components of fitness: body composition (your body fat percentage), cardio-respiratory endurance, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance.

.

Bone density

.

Yet most of us tend to work on just one of these, by perhaps going for a run every so often, but neglect the others. Its easy to forget about the muscles that keep us moving every day, but it is unwise. Resistance training can help to strengthen your bones as well as your muscles, improving bone density and reducing the chances of developing osteoporosis.

.

If your weight has you worried, there is good news there too. For starters, those with more muscle can comfortably eat more every day without gaining weight.

.

Your body has to burn more calories to maintain a kilo of muscle than it does a kilo of fat, personal trainer Zanna Van Dijk writes in her book Strong. Say hello to a faster metabolism and improved energy levels.
Those with more muscle burn more calories even when they are sitting on the couch watching television

.

Youve heard that dieting can make you fat? Well, one reason is that crash dieting can reduce the amount of muscle you have, thereby helping to lower your metabolism. With a slower metabolism you burn fewer calories per day, thus making it easier to regain weight, unless you do some form of strength work.
