If shedding pounds continues to be just like a roller coaster ride for you, perhaps it’s time to have a look at your body’s metabolism. Helping the body take advantage of the nutrients you obtain at a faster pace is an important aspect to have you lose weight quickly and sustain it.
As opposed to dwelling on internal factors that will trigger slow metabolism, it makes more sense to look into 3 external factors you are able to control to manage metabolism. These are generally 1) the quality of food 2) how much water consumption 3) the quantity of physical movements.
You may be doing any or all of the 3 that may be causing your slow metabolism. Based on these 3, allow me to share 5 natural ways for you to turn your metabolism around for the better:
a) Take a whopping breakfast- during 8 hours of inactivity, your system went into hibernation mode conserving energy because it is unaware when it can obtain further energy again. Starting your entire day filled with nutrients tells your system it is now safe to begin burning fat and breaking down proteins again.
b) Eat 5-6 times each day at smaller quantities- for the similar reason as above, do not starve the body by going hungry then eating 3 full meals. Instead, constantly prompt your system to keep burning calories by eating more frequently but also in moderation.
c) Eat more fiber- fiber enriched foods such as fruits, oats, vegetables are easier to digest and as your body can easily use up nutrients from these, additionally, they help eliminate other toxins and wastes easier.
d) Drink up- on water, that is. Nothing beats water being the safest source to hydrate and serve as fuel to your metabolic activities–from the external activities you participate in right down to the most fundamental cellular activities. Drink no less than 8 servings of water each day by always keeping a full bottle handy wherever you are.
e) Being idle- insufficient activity is another main culprit why calories are often not being utilized as efficiently as we want. All the fat hardly needs any calories to maintain themselves. But if you work out or move around more, your muscles begin to grow and can require more calories to use to keep them fit.
A slow metabolism isn’t good news for many people. It might kill your weight and in many cases drag your spirits down causing you to be easily tired. What’s promising however is, through these 5 simple natural strategies, you can easily help your body to make use of your calorie intake fast so you can still enjoy eating while reaping the rewards.
