Rebooting your metabolism

BOOSTING METABOLISM IS SOMETHING EVEYONE WHO IS WATCHING THEIR WEIGHT AIMS FOR.MEN BURN MORE CALORIES THAN WOMEN EVEN AT REST. AFTER THE AGE OF 40, YOUR METABOLISM STEADILY STARTS TO SLOW DOWN, THIS IS SOMETHING WE CAN’T CONTROL – AGE, GENDER AND GENETICS.

SOME TIPS TO REBOOT YOUR METABOLISM:

 

  1. BUILD MUSCLE – THOSE WHO EXERCISE REGULARLY HAVE A HIGHER RESTING METABOLLIC RATE – YES YOU BURN CALORIES AT REST AS WELL. HALF A KG OF MUSCLE BURNS 6 CALORIES OR 24KG A DAY JUST TO SUSTAIN ITSELF. POST AN EXERCISE REGIME, PARTICULARLY STENGTH TRAINING -> YOUR AVERAGE DAILY METBOLIC RATE IS RAISED.

  2. HIGH INTENSITY AEROBIC EXERCISE ALLOWS FOR A BIGGER, LONGER RISE IN RESTING METABOLIC RATE THAN LOW/MODERATE INTENSITY WORKOUT. THIS CAN BE AT THE GYM OF SHORT BURSTS OF JOGGING DURING YOUR WALKS

  3. ESPECIALLY IN RAMADAAN, WE TEND TO NEGLECT OUR WATER INTAKE -> MILD DEHYDRATION SLOWS DOWN YOUR METABOLISM. DURING A STUDY IT WAS FOUND THAT ADULTS WHO DRANK 8 OR MORE GLASSES OF WATER, BURN MORE CALORIES THAN THOSE THAT DRANK 4 GLASSES. BEFORE AND AFTER EVERY MEAL SNACK ON FRUIT AND VEG THAT HAVE HIGH WATER INTAKE. ENERGY DRINKS PROVIDE FALSE ENERGY THAT MAY INCREASE METABOLISM BUT WITH BOUTS OF ANXIETY, HIGH BP AND INSOMNIA.

  4. CHILLI PEPPERS RED OR GREEN, EVEN ADDED TO YOUR PASTA OR GRILLS CAN ASSIST WITH INCREASING METABOLIC RATE.

  5. THE MOST CALORIES ARE USED UP TO DIGEST PROTEINS SUCH AS LEAN STEAKS, FISH, CHICKEN, NUTS, BEANS, EGGS AND LOW FAT DAIRY

  6. CAFFEINE – 1 CUP OF COFFEE A DAY IS SAFE BUT RATHER TRY GREEN TEA, UPTO 2-4 CUPS OF REGULAR GREEN TEA CAN BURN UP TO 17% MORE CALORIES.

  7. AVOID CRASH DIETS!! THIS INTERFERES WITH METABLOIC RATE AND HAS DETRIMENTAL EFFECTS TO MANY OTHER SYSTEMS OF THE BODY
