Do you feel stuck in your weight loss? Do you feel sluggish or fatigue? It’s possible you may have a slow metabolism. Many of us do without even knowing it. We may not realize it, but it may be our habits that are holding us back from achieving our goals. So how do we change it?
Eat at regular times. Our bodies automatically burn calories, but eating at different times makes this process much harder. Try to eat every 3 to 4 hours in order to train your body. This means you’ll get in at least 3 meals and 1 snack. It’s going to prevent your body from creating excess insulin, reducing your risk of diabetes. Also, eat your breakfast within 1 hour of waking. Doing so will get the day off to a great start. Not only will the rest of the meals be less calories but you’ll be more energetic. And, don’t eat within 3 hours of bedtime. Doing so creates more insulin and interrupts your sleep.
In women, their periods. At their time of the month, women lose iron out of the blood which makes them feel fatigue. It acts like the domino effect as it slows down their metabolism. This is why it’s so important to eat iron-rich foots such as broccoli, dark leafy greens, tuna, chicken and apricots. These foods will restore their energy and keep their metabolism up to its normal levels.
Your fiber intake is low. If you want to kick your fat burning into high gear, change your diet to include high-fiber foods. These are foods such as apples, oatmeal, pears, whole-wheat pasta, raspberries, peas and lentils. Other high-fiber foods include oranges, bananas, almonds, pinto beans and mangos. These foods will boost your fat burning by nearly 30 percent, helping you shed those pounds much faster. Try to get at get least 25g a day for a healthy weight loss.
Vitamin D is absent from your diet. Vitamin D is essential to make sure we have strong muscles. Without it, headaches and joint pain can easily creep in without much notice. One easy way to get Vitamin D is from the sun. Get outdoors and enjoy sports or reading in the grass. Or, you may get it in the form of food. Try delicious foods such as salmon, tuna, eggs, mushrooms or cheese.
Eating a low-calorie diet. Every diet has a person cut calories, otherwise nobody would ever lose any weight. However—think of calorie cutting as eating ice cream. If you eat too much, your stomach is upset. If you eat too little—you want more, right? Calories and your body are no different. When your body gets too few calories, it feels as if it’s starving and goes into fasting mode, slowing your metabolism down. Most of us need 1,200 calories a day or our weight loss is going to be at a stand-still.
Metabolism has the ability to kick your weight loss into action. Make sure your diet is rich in foods that boost your calorie burning. Think of it almost as energy to your body. Once you’re out of energy you feel fatigue, but once you eat an apple you feel energetic. You’ll be better off eating these foods each day.
