Some people are very lucky and they can eat whatever they want because they have fast metabolism which prevents the storage of fat. On the other hand, there are people who can’t achieve positive results even if they try their best. this means that it is not the things you do to boost your metabolism but the things you do that slows the metabolism down.
You gave-up on carbohydrates
Carbohydrates perform very important body function when exercising on a regular basis because they provide the body with glycogen that gives the body energy. This means that if you don’t incorporate carbs in your diet, the body will not have enough glycogen that gives it the needed energy. As a result of that, you won’t have the required energy that keeps you moving throughout the day. Without energy, the body burns less calories during the day.
You cut the snacks out
Do not cut out the snacks throughout the day since they allow the metabolism to keep the workout at high level during the day. However, you should snack smartly, which means that you should consume walnuts and almonds because they boost the metabolism and help you burn more calories.
Do not be afraid to reach for coffee
In order to keep the metabolism higher, you should drink black coffee during the day since caffeine content increases the breathing and heart rate by stimulating the central nervous system. Moreover, drinking coffee will boost your energy and it will also give your metabolism a short-term boost that peaks in three hours after consuming it.
Too much heat
Avoid sleeping in warm places because sleeping in colder room will boost the body and start it to get warmer which in turn will help you burn some calories.
Intensify the workouts
You will get the best results from a high intensity workout because then the body consumes more oxygen through the workout forces and as a result of that it burns more calories. High amounts of oxygen consuming carries over into the post workout. As you can see, the next time you should definitely incorporate high intensity working and you can achieve that by working out for five minutes at low intensity and then you increase the intensity for sixty seconds followed by four minutes back at the lower intensity. In order to get the best results, make sure to repeat this for 20-25 minutes, 3 times per week.
Eating the breakfast wrong
In order to start the metabolism up for the upcoming day, you need to consume a healthy breakfast. The best choices are meals based on protein since proteins require more energy from the body in order to digest and break down. For instance, you should eat Greek yogurt along with lean meats, oats, eggs, etc. It should also be mentioned that consuming proteins in the morning will keep you full longer since the body needs more time to breakdown and digest proteins, and as a result of that, this will reduce the amount of calories you intake on a daily basis.
Keep dairy around
Make sure to consume dairy products since they will help you keep the metabolism going and it can also add mass to the muscles. In order to burn more calories, you should add lean muscle and strength training as it keeps the metabolism higher by keeping the muscles active throughout the whole day. At last but not least, the consumption of dairy helps to eliminate the waste from the body. The dairy’s calcium helps the body to metabolize the fats faster.
