How to increase metabolism?
Low Metabolism can be linked to genetics, but it has more to do with how active
we are, and the amount of muscle tissue we have compared with fat.
Our muscles actively burn off the calories that we consume. They require more energy to work effectively. If we are living an inactive lifestyle, our muscles break down and they don't burn the calories like they should. Therefore, if our muscles are not breaking down the calories we consumed, it gets converted to fat cells.
When we are not active, our metabolism decreases, and as a result less calories are burned for energy and more are stored as fat.
A more active person slows the decline of their muscles mass and may even increase the overall muscle mass, depending on activity, and then the
metabolism is higher. This makes it easier for a person to lose weight.
So how do you increase your metabolism?
- Exercise that helps build
muscle, also helps increase metabolism. Any exercise will help.
- Eat smaller meals more
frequently. If you have a small, healthy snack in between meals you
can actually jumpstart your metabolism.
- Don't starve yourself when
trying to lose weight. If your body has nothing to metabolize, it
will slow down completely. Then when you go to eat, your body will
have a very difficult time breaking down food without it turning
straight into fat.
- One of the best low-impact
exercises to do is walking. Try walking for 30 minutes three times a
week. It will increase your metabolism considerably.
- Make sure you eat breakfast. If you don't start your day getting your metabolism going, you could have a hard time doing it when you eat a big lunch or big dinner.
The higher your metabolism is, the more fat you will burn, and the more weight you will lose and keep off. Of course there is more to weight gain and weight loss then metabolism. More of these things are covered in our regular newsletters.
