Ray Burton: As you get over 40, your metabolism starts to slow. It was never a problem for me before so I didn’t look into it much. But now I’m 43, and as I started research on how to boost metabolism, I realized it is a huge topic and that a lot of people want to speed up their slowing metabolisms.
So what we’re going to do today is cover how to boost metabolism, sculpt your body, burn off body fat, develop unstoppable motivation and much, much more over this and the next few posts.
I’m Ray Burton, author of “Begin At The Gym,” which is your complete blueprint to starting from scratch with the goal of losing weight and building muscle with no prior training experience.
However, in this series of articles, I’m going to answer specific questions submitted via e-mail in response to when I asked my readers what they wanted answered about how to boost metabolism so you can sculpt your body, burn off body fat and develop a lean muscular physique.
Basal Metabolic Rate – before we talk about how to speed up your metabolism, we need to talk about your basal metabolic rate (BMR).
BMR is used interchangeably with Basal Energy Expenditure (BEE) most times. All we care about is that your Basal Metabolic Rate is where we start fiddling with calorie intake if you are a numbers type of person. If you are not a numbers type person for dieting, then there is more on how to do that later.
For now, you need to know this if you plan to boost metabolism by the numbers.
