How Eating More Often Can Help You Eat Less

Three square meals a day is so passe nowadays. The "secret" to curb cravings and burn fat faster is to keep your blood sugar level by eating smaller meals more frequently. In today's world of desk jobs and driving everywhere instead of walking, it doesn't make sense to eat big meals three times a day. You're not going to burn up those calories right away -- they're going to be stored as fat instead! It's better to break up the calories you eat into 5 or 6 meals -- or, at the very least, 3 medium meals and 2 to 3 snacks.

Rest Is Just As Important As Exercise

When you get started on a workout, you want to keep it going strong, but you have to remember that you can do too much. Working out as much as you can, for as long as you can, and as hard as you can, is more likely to get you injured than in shape. Our bodies need regular rest to heal and to function optimally. It's a critical part of working out.

You see, every time you work out, you create damage in your muscles and other tissue. It's too small to really notice, but it's still there. Resting your body allows these tiny injuries to heal themselves. If you don't get enough rest between workouts, these tiny problems can add up to a larger, more serious injury. Rest also gives our muscles time to build themselves, so if you never get adequate rest, you won't see significant improvement. Not only should you take adequate rests between each individual workout, you should also alternate light and heavy workouts during the week, and have a much lighter week every 6 weeks or so.
