Exercise and Metabolism
Aerobic exercise may improve your weight loss results, even though it doesn’t cause permanent changes in resting metabolic rate. It can cause up to a 48 hour post-workout increase in calorie expenditure. In contrast, strength training can increase your metabolism by up to 15%. This is due to increased muscle mass, which takes more calories to maintain than fat.

My job requires me to sit on my rear a lot. My sister recommended Pound Melters and I have lost 55 lbs so far. I have received many compliments even though I still have a long way to go. Exercise feels great.

Before and After Pound Melters
Weight Loss Success Story
I have had an ongoing weight problem since puberty. I have also had chronic back pain that forced me to have back surgery in 2005. My back issues have made it hard for me to exercise without feeling like I’ve been in a car accident. On top of this my family loves to eat and I love to cook. I tried different diet plans, including diet medication and it made me jittery and then feel super hungry when I stopped taking it. I started going to Pound Melters on January 11, 2012. I lost 40 pounds after less than one year. I lost the weight by drinking a lot of water, counting calories, very minimal exercise, and taking the Pound Melters medication! Since I’ve lost the weight my back feels better and I no longer have constant pain. My friends and family keep complimenting me on how good I look, I feel better about myself, and this gave me confidence that I’ve never had. Thank you Pound Melters for helping me with my weight problem!
