5 Simple Ways To Boost Your Metabolic Rate
Everybody wants a fast and efficient metabolism. Your metabolic rate is the rate at which your body breaks down food to use as an energy source. The more effective your metabolism, the more energy you will have and the better you will feel. You will also find it much easier to maintain your weight. People with an efficient metabolism don’t gain weight as quickly from high calorie foods.
Here are 5 easy ways to kickstart your metabolism
- Consume protein with every meal
Protein is able to boost metabolism due to its thermic effect. This means it requires more calories to break down and absorb, especially when compared to fats and carbohydrates. Good protein sources to include are meat, poultry, whey protein powder, eggs, nuts and seeds. Protein also promotes satiety, reduces cravings, and is required for muscle growth and recovery.
- Up your water intake
Drinking more water can significantly reduce your calorie intake, as well as boost metabolism. Drinking water can curb cravings, as people often think they are hungry when they are actually thirsty, so drinking water can also promote satiety and reduce appetite.
- Get into weight training
Weight training is an essential component of any workout program, as muscle is more metabolically active than fat, thus having muscle automatically increases metabolism. This means even if you are at rest, you are actively burning more calories. For the women who are reading this, you needn’t worry about getting bulky. Women lack the testosterone levels to get bulky like males. Glutamine is an amino acid that is excellent for stimulating muscle growth and repair, as well as improving muscle recovery.
- Look after your liver
Your liver performs more functions in your body than any other organ. Did you know it’s your major fat burning organ? People who have a fatty liver find it almost impossible to lose weight. They can be eating very little food and still the pounds won’t come off. Weight loss is so much easier when your liver is healthy. I have formulated Livatone Plus with specific ingredients to make your liver a better fat burner.
- Get your thyroid checked
Thyroid disorders are incredibly common. A mildly underactive thyroid can go undiagnosed for many years because the symptoms can be subtle and easily dismissed. Finding it hard to lose weight is a typical symptom, others include depression, fluid retention, constipation, thinning scalp hair and dry skin. Ask your doctor for a blood test checking the hormones TSH and T3, as well as thyroid antibodies. T3 is the active thyroid hormone and requires selenium for its production.
