10 ways to boost your metabolism
1. Stay hydraded
You’ve heard it a thousand times, but why don’t you act? Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day. It is important to work your body better and burn unnecessary calories.
2. Never skip your breakfast
You may forget to eat, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should give him the attention he deserves. This will give your body the “kick” you need to wake up and start burning calories.
3. Drink less alcohol
Don’t overdo it with alcohol especially late at night, unless you want to make your metabolism slower. Research has shown that the day after a night drinking with your buddies, your metabolism is significantly slowing.
4. Eat more
Contrary to what you might believe, it is true. It is good to eat every 3 hours. Prefer cereal bars, whole grain crackers, fruit, juice or yoghurt.
5. Don’t stress yourself
Stress is responsible for many, but also increased levels of cortisol in your body, the hormone that dictates your body not to burn fat but keep it for protection. Find ways to discharge your body. Sports will help a lot.
6. Sleep well. It matters.
To sleep at least 7 hours a day is extremely important for your metabolism. Less sleep slows down your metabolism and this means you burn fewer calories. The same happens if you sleep too much, so keep balance.
7. Avoid light drinks
Light refreshments aree not good for your metabolism. Water is a much better choice, especially if you drink cold, as this will burn more calories.
8. Drink tea (green or mountain)
The polyphenols contained in tea helps to burn fat and increase your metabolism! If you want, and add a teaspoon of honey.
9. Put ginger in your diet
Ginger enhances the flavor in food and increases your energy expenditure. Use it everywhere from a juice to your salad.
10. Eat more oily fish
Fatty fish such as tuna, salmon and sardine increased levels of leptin, the hormone that controls appetite.
