What is Metabolism?

Metabolism is the rate at which the body burns calories. The faster the metabolism, the faster the fat is burnt. There are some factors like age, gender, heredity, health issues and weight that influence the rate of metabolism. A sluggish metabolism can result in weight gain and a high metabolism can result in weight loss. If you want to lose weight or if you want to maintain your body slim and trim, you should boost your metabolism!

So, the question on everyone’s lips is: How to boost metabolism?

#1 – How to boost metabolism through diet

  • Eat Breakfast! When you don’t eat for a long duration of time, the metabolism slows down. The body starts to store the fat to avoid starvation. When you have a healthy breakfast, you can kick start your body for the day and boost your metabolism rate.
  • Eat small and often. It’s better to take five or more smaller meals instead of three heavy meals. Frequent meals stabilize the blood sugar levels and keep on supplying fuel needed for metabolism without any break.
  • Make sure you snack! Many people believe that snacking is not good for the body. In truth, healthy snacks improve the metabolism. Fresh fruit like apples and bananas etc., raw vegetables like cucumber and carrot etc. as a mid morning or mid afternoon snack are very effective in boosting your metabolism.
  • Hit the H2o! Drinking plenty of water, especially ice cold water will speed up the metabolism. When you drink ice water, it decreases the temperature of the stomach, so it works hard to bring back the temperature of the stomach to normal. This increases the rate of metabolism naturally.
  • Don’t Starve! It may be hard to believe that dieting reduces your metabolism, but it is the real fact. You should have at least 1000 calories of food a day as your body needs it to keep going. Think of food as fuel!

  • Foods rich in B-complex like eggs, spinach, asparagus and beans etc. or supplements must be taken to boost metabolism.
  • Nuts like almonds, cashews and peanuts etc. and green vegetables have rich magnesium content. All magnesium rich foods give a boost to the metabolism.
  • Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid to improve metabolism. There are many vitamins and minerals that are needed to boost
    metabolism.
  • Although natural foods are good, you can also go for supplements that contain all essential components needed to give metabolism a boost. Everyone cannot plan their diet correctly and eat accordingly. For these people, supplements are a blessing.
