A higher metabolism helps you feel good with higher energy levels, keeps your body functions going at optimum, and becomes an automatic weight control mechanism for you. Here are ten tips on how to boost your metabolism for fast fat burning.
Eat your breakfast - If you don’t eat breakfast, you slow down your metabolism and send the body into survival mode, thinking it’s starving because you’re going a long period of time without food. Literally, break the fast that your body has been on since dinner. Go ahead and enjoy a balanced breakfast.
Eat the majority of your food earlier in the day – Dinner should be your lightest meal. This helps your body process and burn the food when you’re aware and moving around and burning more calories per hour.
Don’t starve – Dropping your calorie intake below 1,000 calories a day will signal to your body that you are in starvation mode, and will slow down your metabolism.
Eat frequently and eat more – Smaller, more frequent meals keeps your blood sugar stable and provides a steady source of energy to fuel metabolism.
Exercise – Exercise provides a boost at any time of the day, but when done in the mornings, it is especially helpful by raising your metabolism all day. Add weight training or progressive resistance exercise that builds muscle for ever more results. Muscle burns more calories than fat, and the more muscle you have, the more calories you burn, even at rest!
Hydrate yourself – The energy burning process of metabolism needs water to work effectively. Keep drinking those glasses of water regularly.
Get enough B vitamins – Vitamin B-12 is essential for energy. To ensure you’re getting enough B vitamins, consider taking a B complex. Your energy levels will rise, and alongwith, your metabolism too!
