You want to shed the extra pounds but you don't have the time or desire to go on a diet. Well, keep reading, you are in the right place
If you are reading this, it is because you want to lose weight. Maybe you have already tried and you are not able to do it or you are simply pondering whether to start losing the extra kilos. Be that as it may, welcome, because today we are going to discuss how we can lose weight thanks to accelerating metabolism, that is, the calories that humans burn at rest.
Having a fast metabolism is essential to being slim. People who eat a lot and do not get fat do so thanks to it, and the opposite happens to obese people.
Although having a fast or slow metabolism depends a lot on our genetics, there are certain adjustments that we can make daily to speed it up and thus lose weight quickly without doing anything else. Attentive:
1) Eat six 300 calorie meals
Eating more small meals throughout the day can help you feel full for longer while speeding up your metabolism. Why? Taking several meals (about six) throughout the day helps keep blood sugar level stable and prevents insulin spikes, which inevitably lead to weight gain.
Ideally, then, eat six small meals a day, about 300 calories each
2) try eating organic
"Our thyroid controls many body functions, including how fast we burn calories and how fast our heart beats," explains the Office on Women's Health (OWS).
Therefore, eating fruits, vegetables and cereals without pesticides keeps the metabolism strong, since we do not expose our thyroid to toxins. In contrast, non-organic products block our metabolism primarily by interfering with the thyroid, which is the body's thermostat and determines how fast it works.
3) Leave processed and trans fats
The trans fats are not only bad for the heart, but also slow the body's ability to lose weight. Eating processed with trans fats can cause insulin resistance, which occurs when cells in your muscles, fat, and liver don't respond well to insulin and can't easily absorb glucose from your blood, all of which ends up slowing down your metabolism.
4) Drink green tea, coffee and water
It is not only important to eat six meals a day, but also to drink throughout the day. Specifically, drink coffee, tea and water, as they accelerate the metabolism:
· Coffee - Numerous studies show that caffeine can help increase metabolic rate by up to 11%. In fact, six different investigations found that people who consume 270 mg of caffeine per day (about three cups) burn an additional 100 calories every 24 hours.
· Green tea: it is used, above all, to reduce abdominal fat. Numerous studies have shown that people who consumed this drink regularly lost 1.3 kilos more on average than those who did not.
· Water: Drinking water speeds up metabolism by 24-30%, according to several studies.
5) eat more protein
The protein - rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products may help boost your metabolism for several hours.
Numerous research shows that protein-rich foods further increase the body's thermal effect, that is, the amount of calories it takes for it to digest and process. The protein foods increase metabolic rate by 15-30%, compared to 5-10% of carbohydrates and 0-3% fat.
On a very simple level, your weight depends on the number of calories you consume, how many of those calories you store, and how many you burn up. But each of these factors is influenced by a combination of genes and environment. Both can affect your physiology (such as how fast you burn calories) as well as your behavior (the types of foods you choose to eat, for instance). The interplay between all these factors begins at the moment of your conception and continues throughout your life.
