We are here to tell all work out enthusiasts that there are several ways to boost your calorie burn. One thing is for sure is that a boost in metabolism never will happen if one continues to sit on the couch. An individual needs to get up and get only with a workout programme geared to what your body can handle. If an individual does not exercise, they are going to have a slower metabolism. During the winter months metabolism generally slows down unless the individual keeps their exercise going.
Metabolism, plain and simple, is the totality of the life sustaining chemical transformation within any living organism. This includes conversion of food into useable energy, which delivers the fuel for the body’s daily activity. Whether an individual does exercise or not their bodies still needs so many calories just to function, such as, to continue breathing, for the body to expend enough energy to help the blood flow through the veins and for the heart to continue to pump and much more. All of these natural things to survive require an element of energy. Performing certain daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, combing hair, brushing teeth require a certain amount of energy.
Now when an individual consumes more calories per day than they are burning, just through doing simple everyday tasks that person is going to start gaining weight.
In order to burn more calories and make our metabolism faster there are some tips to make this happen.
As mentioned above, the first thing to do is to get up and get going. One must burn more calories than the body requires on a daily basis just to get through the day. Figure out a workout plan geared to what the body can handle, and then gradually increase the plan every few weeks.
One important factor is to get the heart beating to where you can feel the beats in the chest. (Get permission from the doctor before starting any workout plan). Ideally, one would want to really kick up a speed on the treadmill for a few minutes and then back down to a slower speed and repeat. It is important to work the body as hard as possible and use many muscle groups throughout the body.
There is nothing wrong with using muscle power, even for women. Figure out an exercise routine that entails a head to toe strengthening exercise. Be sure to focus on all parts of the body, arms, legs, chest, trunk, shoulders and more. Always schedule a nighttime work out, if it is just a pep walk after dinner.
Increasing metabolism and boosting caloric burn has a lot to do with what foods we eat. Never skip a meal because foods always boosts metabolism. To boost metabolism and burn more calories means keeping three meals a day to no more than 500 calories with two snacks of no more than 300 calories each snack.
Be mindful of the foods chosen and remember that protein at every meal is essential to the health of the body. An example of an ideal day's meal is low-fat yoghurt to start the day and remember to never skip breakfast, a salad with meat such as, tuna or chicken at lunch, and fish for dinner. Excellent snacks are walnuts for example.
Other ideal energy releasing foods include fruits, fresh vegetables and whole grain breads and pastas. Try to avoid canned fruits and vegetables, due to hidden sodium and sugar content. Coffee also helps to speed up metabolism. While two cups of coffee offers needed energy, more than two cups can cause one to feel very fatigued.
If one does not get sufficient sleep every night this throws the body into a hunger mode and causes one to overeat.
Be aware of any prescribed medications and know that some medications slow the metabolism of the body. Some medications cause weight gain. While many cannot do anything about the medications they are taking, they can speed up the metabolism by following these tips to help counteract the effect of the medication.
Remember to speak with your doctor first before starting any exercise programme,
