Its no secret that our metabolism plays a big role in how many calories be burn.
If our metabolism is high throughout the day we will burn more calories and be able to lose weight faster.
That’s why many women do everything in their power to keep their metabolism high at all times.
Turns out there are a lot of things you can do to keep your metabolism running long after you workout.
In this article we will discuss how you can keep your metabolism high, burn off more calories and lose stubborn weight faster.
How To Keep Your Metabolism High
Trigger the afterburn effect
Once you stimulate the afterburn effect your body will need more oxygen to consume post workout.
Which results in more calories burned after working out.
You can stimulate the afterburn effect by using a very intense workouts that get your heart rate up to 80% of your maximum heart rate.
The workouts do not be to extremely lengthy to trigger this effect.
Ideally you want to push your body hard for a short period of time than taking a short rest and repeating this a few times.
You could use HIIT workouts, tabata, sprints or lifting weights with high intensity to trigger this effect.
Example workout to trigger the afterburn effect
Sprint for 1 minute then walk for 1 minute repeated 8 times.
Your body needs energy to keep the metabolism running.
When I say eat enough I’m not talking about eating a lot of unhealthy food.
Just remember to not starve yourself and miss meals, because if you do your metabolism slows down.
Try to eat every 3 hours to make sure you eat enough throughout the day.
The fastest way to slow down the metabolism is to eat too little.
That’s also the reason why many women cannot lose weight despite being on a very low calorie diet.
Eat protein rich foods
Protein rich foods trigger the metabolism.
In fact lean protein sources such as chicken breast help your body to burn more calories.
Your body also needs a lot of energy to digest protein rich foods such as eggs or chicken breasts.
Aim for 3 meals per day where you eat protein rich foods preferably meats, fish or eggs.
Protein is the building blocks of muscles and you definitely need a decent amount of protein to truly get results.
Drinking water can boost the metabolism.
One study suggests that by drinking 500ml of water you can boost your metabolism up by 30%.
So make sure you are drinking at least 8 large glasses of water everyday.
