Your Metabolism Is In Your Hands
Stop giving excuses that you were born with a weak
metabolic system! Your metabolism is in your hands;
your metabolism can be as fast as that of a sprinter.
All you need to do is to make certain changes in your
lifestyle along with an hour of dedicated exercise.
Metabolism is the process in which enzymes inside the
body's cell break the food every time you eat and convert
it into energy that keeps your heart beating, your mind
thinking, and your entire body moving.
The faster your metabolism works the more calories
you burn. The more you burn, the easier it is to drop
pounds and to remain fit and healthy. Minor day to day
changes can help you get a better metabolism. Here are
certain tips which can do wonders to get you a superb
metabolism, keeping you fit, healthy and good looking.
Have a good breakfast everyday. Never skip your breakfast.
If you don't, your body goes into starvation mode, so
your metabolism slows to a crawl to conserve energy.
Make sure that you have a healthy breakfast. Try a mix
of lean protein with complex carbohydrates and healthy
fats, like this power breakfast like an omelet made
from one egg and two egg whites and a half cup of mixed
peppers and onions, plus a half cup of cooked steel-cut
oats mixed with a quarter cup of frozen berries and
a teaspoon of omega-3-loaded fish oil. Drink a lot of
water. At least 8-12 glass of water should be consumed
Pick up protein diet for lunch during work hours. Cramming
protein into every meal helps build and maintain lean
muscle mass. Aim for about 30 grams of protein-the equivalent
of about one cup of low-fat cottage cheese or a four-ounce
boneless chicken breast-at each meal. Brew up some green
tea. It's the closest thing to a metabolism potion.
Slow your workout sessions- It is not as easy as it
seems to be. While strength training count till 3 as
you lower the weight back to the start position. Slowing
things down increases the breakdown of muscle tissue,
which is a good thing. The repair process pumps up your
metabolism for as long as 72 hours after your session
Sleep early and sleep well- When you sleep less than
you should, you throw off the amounts of leptin and
ghrelin hormones that help regulate energy use and appetite
that your body produces. People who sleep less than
7.5 hours per night experienced an increase in their
body mass index. So make sure you get at least eight
hours of rest.
