This is Part 2 of Body Metabolism
How to increase Metabolism:
1) Build up on lean, mean body mass. How?
=> Match the amount of eating to the amount of activity one has.
Here are some guidelines in getting the right exercise:
For strength training
– Increase the amount of repetitions of a particular exercise.
– Add the level of resistance
– Utilize advance exercise techniques if possible
For cardiovascular training
– Insert intervals between exercises
– Perform cross-training and combine the exercises
– Add up on resistance and speed
2) Eat breakfast.
A lot of people are ignoring the fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Surprisingly, the ones who eat breakfast are thinner than the ones who do not. Metabolism can slow down considerably if breakfast is taken during mid-morning or if one waits until the afternoon to eat.
3) Avoid sugar.
Sugar enables the body to store fat. It is recommended that a person consumes food that helps sustain a even level of blood-sugar. Additionally, progressive exercise 2 to 3 times a week should be in order to stabilize blood sugar.
4) Eat spicy foods.
Hot cuisine with peppers can increase metabolism.
5) Sleep more.
According to research, it is riskier for people who do not get enough sleep to gain weight. Also, muscles are regenerated during the last couple of hours of slumber.
6) Increase water intake.
Water flushes out toxins that are produced whenever the body burns fat. Majority of bodily functions involves water, and lack of water causes the body system’s operations to decrease its speed, and produces unneeded stress as a result.
7) Eat smaller meals.
It is advisable to consume 4 to 6 small meals that are timed 2 to 3 hours apart.
8) Never skip meals.
People tend to skip meals in order to lose weight, which is a big mistake since it slows down metabolism.
9) Plan meals in detail.
Always prepare the right amount of food to be consumed at the designated intervals. Do not commit the mistake of eating meals in sporadic patterns.
10) Ditch the stress!
Stress, be it physical or emotional, triggers the release of a steroid called cortisol, which decreases metabolism. Also, people tend to eat excessively when stressed.
11) Guzzle up on green tea.
It can be used as a substitute for coffee. Tea has the ability to stimulate metabolism, and unlike coffee, it has no undesirable side effects when too much is consumed.
12) Include more energy foods in the diet, such as fruits and vegetables, beans and whole grains.
Achieving the desired body weight is never impossible if one has the determination and patience needed to stabilize the metabolism level, which plays an important role in weight loss. A person needs to realize that eating the right food and working out is not just a passing fancy, but a way of life.
