Metabolism is the little engine in your body that burns calories all day and every day. Hence if you will be able to boost it then you can burn fat much easily.
Here are some expert’s tips on how to boost your metabolism:
- Calorie cutting:
Do not cut excessive calories in your diet as putting yourself on a very low-calorie diet couldn’t help you to lose fat. If you suddenly drop 1000 calorie from your diet, your resting metabolic rate will automatically slow down, because your body will now assume that you are starving.
So now the question come how many calories should you consume? It is totally depended on your level of activity, you can efficiently lose anywhere to half or one kilogram of your weight if you multiply it by 11 then the number which you get is the calorie intake you should take on a daily basis.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as far as metabolism is concerned. Those who eat breakfast tend to lose more weight than those who skips it. Metabolism slows down when you sleep and it does not start again until you eat something. Therefore if you bypass your breakfast, your body won’t burn as many calories until you had your lunch. It’s smart to start the day with solid 300 to 400 calorie meat to start your metabolism. Breakfast should contain high-fibre carbs in it as it controls hunger, and doesn’t change your blood sugar.
Protein can also boost your metabolism, due to which you can burn an extra 150 to 200 calories in a day. Protein is made up of amino acids which are very hard for your body to break, due to which body burn more calories to burn them for you. It doesn’t mean that you should change your diet strictly to protein but it mean that you should include at least 10 to 35 percent of your daily calories in term of protein.
- Eat all day long:
As it stated it doesn’t means the same at all. It mean that you should eat five to six small meal instead of three large meals in a day as it can keep your metabolism on work 24/7.
- Eat good carbs:
It is very important to keep carbohydrates in your diet, it should be in form of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, which have less impact on insulin level as well.
- Skip alcohol:
Drinking alcohol in between your meal can add up to 200 calories in your diet. It is also seen that the body burns off the alcohol first due to which the calories of the rest of the meal will be more likely to be stored as fat. So in short skip alcohol if you want to stay healthy.
- Drink milk:
Drinking milk can boost your metabolism and help in reducing weight as calcium present in milk along with other substances revs up metabolism telling your body to burn excess fat faster.
