3 Tips to Boost Your Metabolism

FIRE UP THE FAT-BURNING PROCESS

Your metabolic rate is the amount of calories your body burns - a higher rate means more calories burned faster and more weight loss. Having a high metabolism can also increase overall energy levels and make body systems function more efficiently! Amping up this process can be summarized into 3 of my favorite topics: fitness, food, and hydration!

 

FITNESS

HIIT workouts are a method of training in which quick bursts of exercise are followed by short recovery times between high-intensity movements. This kind of physical activity triggers a reaction in the body that keeps burning fat even after a workout session is over! In short, a more rigorous exercise routine means longer recovery time, and this repair process eats up additional calories. Mixing HIIT into your fitness program will keep your metabolism working at a speedy pace!

Also, since muscle is more metabolically active than fat, exercises that focus on building muscle can help to increase your body's calorie-crushing capacity. Incorporating weights into regular workouts will improve your resting metabolic rate by developing muscle mass that burns calories more efficiently.*

FOOD

Eating a meal can increase your metabolism for a few hours, which is why it's so important to have food at regular intervals throughout the day! Extra calories are required to digest, absorb, and process dietary nutrients - protein stimulates the largest rise in this process and can increase your metabolic rate by 15% to 30%! Getting enough protein will inhibit a drop in metabolism associated with losing fat due to its muscle-building potential, and as we just learned, more muscle means better metabolic rate!*

Diet and lifestyle changes are the key to feeling (and looking) amazing!

HYDRATION

Drinking several glasses of cold water a day can increase your resting metabolism - this boost may result from the amount of energy required for your system to heat chilled liquid to body temperature, and water is the best option for this process since it contains zero calories! Although the calories burned by drinking a single cup of cool water doesn't amount to very much in a day, making it a habit every day can add up to weight loss with minimal effort!

Drinking green or oolong tea may also help out your metabolic rate, since these teas can convert fat stored in the body to fatty acids which amp up overall fat-loss functions. Just make sure to ditch the added sugar and dairy product if you're going to be drinking up!*
