And stop counting!
Let’s talk about How to boost your metabolism
Not everyone is lucky to be blessed with a good metabolism. Some of us have to work on our metabolism levels so that we can maintain healthy weight levels. There are many ways by which you can boost your metabolism, with regular exercise and mindful eating topping the list.
Today, we will be discussing how to eat to boost your metabolism. With simple, insignificant changes in your lifestyle, you can boost your metabolism easily. Let’s have a look at how you can do this:
Switch to Plant-based Foods
Research has stated that those who strictly follow a low-fat plant-based diet have shown increased metabolism in their bodies. This diet also helps tackle insulin resistance and excess body weight in adults.
In a comparative study spanning over 16 weeks, it was noted that a low-fat plant-based diet could help you knock off those extra pounds a lot faster than going to a diet. After all, getting to the happy weight gradually and in a healthy way is our ultimate goal – and switching to a plant-based diet to lose weight will help you get there faster.
Eat at Regular Times
Balance and regularity are key to contributing to a healthy metabolism level in your body. If you go for long hours without eating, the body may burn calories slowly, leading to the accumulation of fat cells. You can cut down on this tendency by eating moderate meals at regular intervals, say 3 to 4 hours apart.
Eat Enough Calories
If you’re one who skips meals to lose weight, here’s a word of caution. Skipping meals or not eating enough can negatively impact your metabolism. This is because your metabolism slows down so that your body can conserve energy to keep you going for a longer period.
Eating enough and eating healthy is key to make sure your metabolism levels are just where they need to be. And we all know by this point that it’s not about counting calories, right??
Include Lots of Vitamin B
The vitamin B family (B1 – thiamine, B2 – riboflavin, and B6 – pyridoxine) is pretty instrumental in boosting your body’s metabolic rate. Including wholesome foods in your diet that are also rich in vitamin B is very important. Try having Brussel sprouts, oranges- real oranges, not orange juice-, peanut butter, broccoli, spinach, and whole-grain foods in your meals. This will not only help you keep up with the vitamin B levels essential for your body but will also help you with weight loss.
Incorporating these small changes in your lifestyle will definitely have a huge impact not only on your metabolism but also on the overall health of your body. A mere effort isn’t enough; effort in the right direction is what you require—following trends without understanding how your body functions and what your body actually needs won’t make sense. But yes, tried and tested methods are always welcome!
I hope these tips on mindful eating will help you lose weight in a healthy manner.
