We are always saying that we wish our metabolism was faster but what is it really and what role does it play within our bodies?
Metabolism is the system that converts what we eat and drink into energy. Depending on what our bodies need, metabolism can speed up and slow down at any time.
In wanting to speed up metabolism, it is important to understand that our metabolism is working with our bodies in our best interests. This also includes storing fat that will be burned up later for energy!
Understanding your metabolism and using the following tips can help to speed things up in a healthy way!
Eat Small Meals
Eating smaller meals every 3-4 hours can easily help speed up your metabolism! Eating more frequently, but in smaller portions, will keep your body working to burn fat for hours, keeping it engaged in a healthy way!
Eat More, Lose Weight!
Believe it or not, extreme calorie restriction wrecks havoc on your body, as it prevents lasting weight loss from occurring. In restricting your calories, your metabolism is slowed down, as it tries to conserve as many calories it can for your body's survival! So eat those smaller meals throughout the day with no worries!
Yummy Food to Include in Your Diet
Drink Water Throughout the Day
Drink 2-3 liters of water a day. According to WebMD, drinking 17 oz of water speeds up metabolism 30% within 10 minutes, reaching its maximum boost after 30-40 minutes! Such an easy task for such a big result!
It's as Easy as Sleeping Like a Baby!
Getting the appropriate 8 hours of sleep is extremely helpful to your body, and also plays a big role in how your metabolism functions. When you are sleep deprived, your metabolism is given the signal to slow down and use less energy. This often causes many people to binge eat later in the day. So take the time to snooze, your body will be able to work harder with more Zzz's for fuel!
