Four Ways to Boost Your Metabolism
One of the key ingredients to weight loss is learning how to boost your metabolism. We have come up with our top strategies to get your metabolism moving naturally and speed up fat loss.
Eat Breakfast - It really is the most important meal of the day. When you chose to skip this meal, your body goes into starvation mode because you are not breaking your fast from the entire time you were asleep. So your metabolism slows down in order to conserve energy. When (not if) you are preparing breakfast, pick something that will fill you up and give you energy. If you have some time on your hands whip up a vegetable omelette with a piece of toast. Or if you are rushing out the door, reach for a plain greek yogurt and mix in some whole grain granola.
Eat Protein - Protein has a high thermogenic effect, meaning you can burn about 30% of the calories the food contains during digestion. Make an effort to incorporate a serving of protein with each meal. This will help keep you feeling fuller longer.
Eat Regular Meals - This is so important to keep your metabolism running. In order to prevent your body from going into starvation mode like we talked about in #1, you should aim to eat at least every 4 hours during the day.
Drink Green Tea - The benefits to drinking green tea go on and on. It is full of antioxidants and fat burning properties that will improve your blood flow. Drink it day or night, hot or iced.
Notice a pattern? It is so important to nourish your body by drinking plenty of fluids and consistently eating whole foods. This will help your metabolism naturally speed up and give you more energy.
