Are you looking for a new method to naturally burn more calories? If so then a new study has revealed how.
This study was undertaken at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, which looked at how interleukin-6, a molecule that helps to fight against infection could help with your weight loss goals.
What did this study discover?
In the study the researchers looked at mice and discovered that the fattest mice were deficient in interleukin-6.
The researchers injected some of the mice with this molecule and they discovered that their metabolism increased, along with feelings of satiety of fullness.
Increasing the amount of interleukin-6 could provide the following benefits:
- Faster metabolism
- Calories burnt
- Faster fat burn
- Reduced hunger
How to increase your own interleukin-6 levels?
To increase your own natural levels of interleukin-6 it has been suggested that if you lift weights that you pay more attention to the lowering or ‘eccentric’ part of the exercise.
When lowering the weights, try to slow the rate of the lower by 3-5 seconds for maximum results.
This is just one way to naturally burn more calories, it is certainly not the only way.
To ensure you experience the best results from your weight loss efforts, make sure to eat as healthily as possible and to get regular exercise.
Weight training is a good option, but you must find something that you enjoy. As otherwise it will be unlikely that you will stick to it long-term.
