SECRET TIPS TO SPEED UP YOUR METOBOLISM
Despite the ever growing popularity of dieting programs and
weight loss pills, cutting-edge research continues to show that
the secret to losing weight is not cutting carbs or counting
calories – it's what steps you take to speed-up your metabolism.
So what is metabolism?
Your metabolism rate is the rate at which your body burns
calories. People with a high metabolism rate can eat more
without gaining weight. So if we are able to find ways to
speed-up our metabolism, it means that our bodies will be able
to burn more calories during the day and we would lose weight.
Here are some ways that you will speed-up your metabolism which
will cause you to lose effective weight – naturally:
Eat more smaller meals during the day.
Eating 5 or 6 smaller meals instead of 3 large meals during the
day will raise your metabolism naturally and is a key component
to weight loss. Doing this will also stop you from having the
tendency to binge and consume far too many calories as you will
never get to the stage of being extremely hungry . Eating more
frequently will also amp up your energy and keep your insulin
levels constant. Try to eat your last meal before 8pm.
Drink Lots Of Water.
Continuously drinking water throughout the day is essential to
losing weight. Our bodies are over 70% water and it needs a
large amount of this liquid to maintain its daily functions. You
should drink at between 2 to 3 litres a day.
Our bodies are over 70% water and it needs a large amount of
this liquid to maintain its daily functions. Water helps to
flush our systems and remove harmful toxins. When you don't
drink enough water, your body actually holds onto the water.
This in turn will leave you bloated.
Water is also a great no-calorie source to fill up your stomach
which helps keep you feeling fuller. If you actually drink ice
cold water you will burn more calories. This is because your
body has to heat up the ice cold water and it uses energy
(calories) to do so. This is otherwise known as the "thermogenic
effect". You can burn an additional 100 calories a day by
drinking one gallon of ice cold water!
Add some form of resistance training to your exercise.
Increased muscle mass is crucial in speeding-up your metabolism
rate. If you can add 1 extra pound of muscle, it will burn about
50 extra calories a day. It goes without saying that you should
include some form of weightlifting program into our exercise.
However a lot of people, especially women, believe
weightlifting will cause them to become too muscular. This is in
fact a common misconception. It is very hard to put on a lot of
muscle and it takes time. On the other hand, putting on a bit of
muscle will help you burn those extra calories more easily.
