Home LifestyleDining Boosting Our Metabolism

#metabolism

Our metabolism is all the chemical processes that occur within our body that are keeping us alive- not the number of calories we burn. Nowadays, however, ‘metabolism’ has become synonymous for your metabolic rate, which is the amount of calories you burn.

Having a higher metabolism means that we are burning more calories. This makes it easier to lose weight and keep it off- meaning that doughnut you decided to indulge in won’t be the end of the world.

Our size, gender, genetics, and age all play a part in our metabolic rate, but there are ways that we can control it. Here are 10 scientifically proven ways to increase metabolism, and keep your body burning like a high performing furnace.

Pump some iron and eat real food to boost metabolism

Dumbbells and dead lifts are your friends. Muscle not only weighs more than fat, it is also more metabolically active than fat. Every pound of muscle on your body uses about 6 calories a day just to stay alive. If you put on a little muscle mass, you can ramp up your resting metabolism and look leaner. Strength training for even just half an hour twice a week can raise your resting metabolism significantly. In addition to your interval training, remember to add some weights to your routine!

So, plan to set aside 2 days a week to strength training. There are great workouts that you can do with minimal equipment at home, at a park, or at a gym. Think about joining a workout class if you need some extra motivation, and keep track of your improvement over time- you’ll feel great when you’re able to see your changes!
