The healthy way to raise your BMR is to increase your exercise. Avoid fat burners or fat burning supplements – exercise is still the only effective way to raise your basal/resting metabolic rate.
Exercise Also Helps You to Lose Weight
Let’s say you eat a 1.6oz packet of peanut M & Ms (approx 240 calories).
- If you jump rope, you can burn off all these calories in about 22 minutes.
- If you walk at 3mph, you can burn off these calories in about 48 minutes.
- In addition, exercise helps to raise your resting metabolic rate, which makes it easier to lose weight.
- Finally, exercise also helps you to lose weight by boosting your motivation to stick to your weight loss program.
Note: all calorie-burn figures are approximate. They are based on a 150 pound woman. If you weigh more, you’ll burn more calories. If you weigh less, you’ll burn less calories.
