5 Ways to Speed Up Metabolism

  1. 1. 5 Simple Ways to Speed Up Your Metabolism Brought to you by: http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
  2. 2. Eating, Metabolism & Fat Loss • When it comes to fat loss, diet and nutrition plays an important role • Food give you nutrients and energy and can in fact help you accelerate fat loss too. The secret to that? The quality and timing of eating • Burn more calories while at rest by watching what you eat, and also when you eat • Here’s 5 really simple ways to speed up your body’s metabolism © The Fitness Tribe | http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
  3. 3. 1. Do not skip breakfast • Breakfast does wonders in kickstarting your metabolism • Have a nutritious and fulfilling morning meal so that if you satisfy your appetite early in the day, this will help to prevent binge eating later on • You should be consuming solid food which includes a good balance of macronutrients such as complex carbohydrates (from whole grain like granola, oatmeal or wholemeal bread), along with some protein and fats (low-fat yogurt, milk, peanut butter) © The Fitness Tribe | http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
  4. 4. 2. Eat at regular hours everyday • Get into the habit of having fixed meal hours if possible and try to abide to them strictly • When you eat erratically and at times go for long hours without food, your body may enter starvation mode, i.e. metabolism slows down greatly, as it doesn’t know when to expect food intake again. • This leads to the storage of fats as a “back-up” source of energy • Once you start having your meals at regular timing with fixed intervals, your body becomes familiar with that routine • When food is given at those regular hours, metabolism continues to burn steadily instead of fluctuating © The Fitness Tribe | http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
  5. 5. 3. Ensure you consume protein every meal • Protein consumption will actually help to reduce your appetite, because similar to carbohydrates, it also gives you the feeling of satisfaction while having a meal • Protein also requires more energy to digest hence your net calorie intake from per unit of protein is reduced • In fact, when you consume a combination of protein and carbohydrates, you will find that you feel full longer as compared to eating carbohydrates alone © The Fitness Tribe | http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
  6. 6. 4. Resist the temptation to snack • Many people often reach out for a snack or a quick bite when they are feeling tired or worn out but the real reason for needing to eat a snack is often not real hunger • It could be just due to boredom or slight fatigue due to concentrating on a task for too long. • Instead of snacking, go for a 10 to 15 minutes brisk walk around your workstation or just out of the office to get some air • This should help in raising your heart rate which will give you a boost in energy levels • Drink more water if you have been glued to your desk the entire day and haven’t been hydrating yourself © The Fitness Tribe | http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
  7. 7. 5. Consume enough calories based on your body’s needs • Consuming too little calories slows down your body’s metabolic rate the same way as eating too infrequently or erratically does • Aiming for weight loss doesn’t mean that you have to slash your calorie intake drastically. In fact, that’s counter productive to your efforts • Instead, aim to gradually decrease the calories in your overall diet • One good starting point will be to cut out some of the unnecessary calories from junk food in your diet • Beverages are often a secret major contributor to your calorie consumption. Soda, fruit juices, caffeine beverages of coffee houses all contain high amounts of sugar which may actually be the culprit for your weight gain © The Fitness Tribe | http://www.thefitnesstribe.com
