Yes, we all know them. Those people who stuff pizza, ice cream and fried chicken down their mouths, and yet still maintain that slim physique. Damn them and their high metabolism. I know. I say, don’t worry about them and start focusing on YOU. Stop blaming your genetics for your slow metabolism. Although genetics do play a role on the rate of your metabolism, there are still ways to boost your metabolism. So, no excuses ladies and gentlemen.
By definition the metabolism is the “rate at which the body burns calories” and the “process by which the body breaks down food and converts that food to energy.” Everybody has an average number of calories that are burned at rest. For some this number could be high for others this number could be low. However, whatever the number might be, there are a few ways to boost your metabolism throughout the day.
Gain Muscles: The more muscle mass one has, the more calories they will burn throughout the day. In fact muscle burns 3 times the calories as body fat does. So don’t be scared to lift weights ladies.
Never Skip Breakfast: Having a healthy hearty breakfast within the first two hours of waking up will get your metabolism up and running.
Drink 8-12 Cups of Cold Water: Drinking cold water burns about 30 calories with each cup, and since water is a zero calorie beverage this is basically a win win situation.
Drink Green Tea with Caffeine: Drinking green tea with caffeine spikes your metabolism, but only for a short amount of time. If you constantly drink it throughout out the day the benefits are substantial.
Capsaicin Pepper: Adding capsaicin pepper to your meals also boost your metabolism, but like green tea it only boost it for a short amount of time. But hey, what’s the harm in burning some extra amount of calories?
Exercise: Exercising daily keeps you burning calories hours after you’re done with your workout. The best exercises for boosting your metabolism is HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training)
Keep it Cold: When your environment is cold your body has to work to keep your body warm, which burns calories in the process.
Remember you are beautiful no matter what size, shape or form you are! The mission is to get healthy.
