Ten Ways to Change your Metabolism Speed

Ten Ways to Change your Metabolism Speed

  1. Metabolism jump start - walk or run in bursts of 30 seconds. When you do this, you will take in more oxygen into your body and this will cause the cells in your body to work harder in order to burn energy more efficiently.
  2. Eat fish - Good sources of omega three oil fish are salmon and tuna, or you could take a cod liver oil supplement instead. Or if you don’t like eating fish try these other alternatives instead flaxseed oil, walnuts or eggs that are high in omega three oils.
  3. Do resistance training - When you’re actually working against something, and you start to build muscle this alone will enable your body to burn calories, even when you’re resting up to a hundred more over a period of time. Muscle tissue tends to be active where as fat isn’t. If you work out for 30 minutes two times per week this will speed up your metabolism overtime.
  4. Drink green tea - Green tea has long been known to have very good antioxidant properties which is good for overall health. However studies have been done on people, and the participants in the studies were found to lose weight, rather than those who didn’t drink green tea. You need to drink about 5 cups a day in order to lose roughly about 90 calories per day.
  5. Don’t do crash dieting - When people are initially trying to lose weight, you tend to think that by cutting your calories down to the bare minimum you will lose weight faster. But that isn’t so. What you need to do is eat five to six small meals a day. This will stop your body going into starvation mode and holding onto fat stores.
  6. Exercise in two parts - Rather than exercising intensively for one hour or two hours and having small breaks in between, exercise for half an hour. Then do your second session later on in the day. Studies have shown that you burn more fat this way than you would do if you exercise in just one session. You will get more of a after burn effect and your body will still be burning calories in between.
  7. Eat Breakfast - With the way we tend to live these days a lot of people do tend to skip it. A ongoing study that monitored people who didn’t,and those who did eat breakfast found that over a period off five years that the people whom ate breakfast, lost weight and kept it off rather than those who didn’t eat breakfast.
  8. Eat snacks - Sometimes this can be frowned upon in diet and weight loss circles, but the thing is your blood sugar levels will remain constant throughout the day. This will conquer any cravings and also keep your metabolism nicely ticking over. You’ll find also that you will need less food throughout the day.
  9. Lower your intake of trans fats - We all know that these fats are bad for us, but the problem is due to their odd shape, they tend to bind to fat cells, which slow your metabolism down by clogging your liver up. Which is one of the major fat burning organs within your body.
  10. Eat organic fruit and vegetables - Food that has been grown without the use of pesticides, will keep your metabolism running better rather than ones that have been treated with pesticides. Food that has been treated with pesticides puts toxins into your body which interfere with your thyroid gland. So maybe it’s time to go organic.
