Metabolism is basically a term that is used to define the chemical reactions in your body and there are ONLY 2 major ways to boost your metabolism.
There are people that claim to be blessed with fast metabolism and that’s not you which is why you are here.
How Can You Boost Your Metabolism?
There are many ways you can boost your metabolism but the thing is that those methods are usually meant for the short term boost.
And because this blog is for your long term health, I’m going to give you just 2 major ways to boost your metabolism which will stay with you for life.
1. Exercise More
This is the most important one of them all.
Do you know why most couples begin to gain weight after marriage? It’s simple.
Some couples feel like they’ve gotten what they want and they stop doing some of those things that made them attractive. E.g, working out.
They go to work, come home and sit in front of the TV for hours.
That’s a sedentary lifestyle which is a major contributor to weight gain and slow metabolism.
If you’re married I’m sure you can relate to this.
So, get more workout done. You don’t have to lift weights though.
You can go for runs everyday and see the difference in a few weeks.
Running, or jogging helps increase your metabolism and lose weight in a week.
Run for 30 minutes every single day and I promise you, the results will begin to show in a few short weeks. Trust me on this!
2. Always Get a Good Night Sleep
This is also as important as running for weight loss.
A good night sleep can have many major impact on your physical, social and psychological well being.
I’m not going to go into that for now, but you must know that an adequate amount of sleep, every night (except for nights you can’t help it) will improve your health and boost your metabolism.
Carve out a specific amount of time each day to your sleep. Sleep for at least 7 hours.
Don’t over-do it.
Many studies have shown that lack of sleep can make you feel hungry and sluggish, which is true. But also, too much sleep can cause the same effect.
So what’s the balance?
4 hours sleep is too small and 12 hours sleep is just too much. You know your body and you know what is good for it.
You also know how much sleep it needs to function adequately.
Use that, and don’t deviate from it.
If you focus exclusively on these 2 major ways to boost your metabolism, you can begin to lose weight as fast as possible.
