Have you been looking for an uninterrupted session of early morning workout? Do you think working out on an absolutely empty stomach the first thing after you wake up is a brilliant idea? Do you know you can't be more wrong? Yes, going through a rigorous training without infusing your body with adequate calories can do more harm than the wondrous results you were hoping for. “Fasted workouts” not only stalls the metabolic rate but also lead to dizziness and fatigue that tire you out within moments of your session. Adequate carbohydrates, fats, water and even glucose are essential to fuel the body before launching into a heart pumping workout routine. Although it might seem tempting to continue the fast until after the workout, in the hope of losing those calories faster, the low blood sugar as a result can lead to dire consequences in the long run. A protein powder shake, fruits, preferably berries are a few options that can be integrated into your pre-workout meals. However, substituting them with calorie laden foods, caked with sugar/ oil will do the exact opposite and hinder the rapid burning of the calories. Here's an overview on some of the edibles that generate miraculous results when consumed minutes before the workout: Bananas Pre-worko

Workout buddies are great as long as they are as motivated as you feel. Exercising like a lone wolf or going for an intense jog at the crack of the dawn might not always seem the best ways to get the job done. It is during such dire scenarios that the company of another individual who boosts you to try harder is much needed. Working out with small fitness groups or a fellow gym goer does wonders to your endurance and also your confidence. For most, workouts are a way to justify the careless manner in which they eat or lead a sedentary lifestyle. Such an adverse way of thinking only leads to harmful consequences and health conditions than positive gains. Let’s face it; shedding kilos to stay lean is tough work. The effort we put in at the beginning of the workout week starts to wane as the week progresses. The motivation that powered us to buy the gym clothes, protein powder sachets, swanky running shoes and even made us download a work-out music playlist is rendered meaningless after a few successful days in. Finding people to work out with isn’t that difficult even when all your friends have turned down the offer of an early morning sprint. Gym membership often include group training sessions that allow its clients to pair up with partners or groups of people who have

Metabolism is a series of chemical processes that occur within our body to expend energy. This is the energy on which we function. Metabolic rates are prone to manipulation and are subjected to increase and decrease based on the activities we perform throughout the day. A high metabolic rate is key in losing weight rapidly. The way our metabolism functions often depend on genetics and care must be taken to work it in such a way that our body continues to burn fat swiftly without slowing down drastically. Before jumping onto strict workout regimes and stricter diets to amplify the metabolic rate, it is essential to learn about the Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR. This is the rate at which the body burns calories in a sedentary state. If the BMR remains within the normal range you would be spared from undergoing rigorous exercise sessions. On the other hand a low BMR must be altered by adopting some crucial lifestyle changes. A faster metabolic rate is directly proportional to calorie loss. However, simply exercising without eating adequately yet healthily can put the metabolism in disarray. It is thus advised to incorporate proper food habits along with sufficient activities in our day to day lives to steady the BMR. The quality of our health is solely in our hands and the on
