Have you ever wished you had a personal trainer? Well you do – we all do. There is one inside our bodies.
They work tirelessly helping us burn calories and lose fat. Your trainer has a name: Metabolism.
Anything and everything that your body does is done by Metabolism. The enzymes break down what you eat and create energy.
That energy gets your heart going, your mind going and gets your legs moving. If metabolism is moving fast, you’re burning more calories.
So if you want to lose weight fast, you need Metabolism to get busy and start burning those calories. In fact, with the right coaching, Metabolism will work 24 hours a day if you need her to.
How to Speed Up Weight Loss For Women
Get Your Mornings Going
Start your day with a good breakfast.
Do not skip breakfast. When you do skip this important meal of the day, your body gets paranoid and falls into a starvation mode and Metabolism slows down to a crawl as an energy saver.
So hearty breakfast is a must!
Your breakfast should have foods that digest slowly so that you’ll feel full longer.
A breakfast of lean protein, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats, is a power breakfast that will get Metabolism going.
An omelet made with eggs, onions and peppers along with a ½ cup of oats. Add frozen berries and Omega-3 fish oil to the oats.
Don’t Forget Joe!
A recent study has shown that when you drink caffeine, Metabolism increases as much as 16 percent. It stimulates the central nervous system, increases the heart rate and your breathing.
Water It All Down
Chase that cup of joe with ice-cold water.
Drinking 8 to 12 eight ounce classes every day raises your metabolic rate. Believe it or not, drinking water will burn calories too. Not many, but every one helps, right?
Keep On Track At Work Too
Protein For Lunch
Packing protein in every meal will build lean muscle mass and keep them maintained.
When it comes to burning calories, muscle burns more than fat, even when you’re just sitting around.
Try to get at least 30 grams of protein in each meal. Four ounces of boneless chicken breast or one cup of low-fat cottage will do the trick.
Make That Green Tea Please
Green tea is almost like a metabolism potion which promotes fat burning.
Research and study has shown that those who drank 3 to 5 cups a day for 3 months lost 4.6 percent of their body weight, which is approximately five pounds a year. This will speed up your weight loss.
Doctor Dairy To The Rescue
Some days, you just need the French fries and that’s okay. However, after a lunch, make your afternoon snack a dairy treat of either low-fat yogurt or 8 ounces of milk.
Calcium and metabolism are friends and work together to fight that fat in your body.
