Spring is officially here, and it is finally time for both our mind and our body to wake up. A long winter, however, has made us lethargic and slow. Read on to get a list of ways in which you can awaken your body and how to get a faster metabolism.
Frosty mornings are now behind us, and long sunny days lie in the waiting. Our body, however, still does not realize that its surroundings are changing, and that it has to adapt to thrive and to fully enjoy the new situation it finds itself in. It has slowed down, and it is still living within the cold winter days of which the last four months were made of. If you want to change this as quickly as possible, follow these tips on how to make your metabolism faster.
Eat within 1 hour of waking up
Eat your breakfast as soon as you wake up, so that you make sure that your body starts burning those calories as quickly as possible. Not eating breakfast because you are in a hurry in the mornings is extremely wrong (other thank unhealthy) if you want to get a fast metabolism, as you will not get the much needed nutrients that your body needs to warm up and go through the day.
Keep on moving
Stay active, and eat before you work out. In order to burn the highest amount of calories, eat a fruit and 20-30g of proteins before going to the gym or exercising. This way you will burn more fat and get more muscles.
No artificial foods
Before buying processed foods, look carefully at the label. If it contains saturated fats and artificial sugars, leave it behind. A healthy lifestyle usually does not include these metabolism killing chemicals. Instead, go for natural sweeteners such as honey.
Follow the natural flow of seasons
Respect your body, and try following the flow of seasons when you are choosing what food you will eat. Each season, your body changes the hormones its produces; try following a diet that respects it by adapting the food you take in to what the soil produces.
Keep on drinking
You can never go wrong: 30ml of water for every kg of body weight. If you are dehydrated or if you do not drink enough, your body will bloat as a consequence. Keep on drinking water to constantly get rid of the toxins!
I hope you found this list of tips on how to get a fast metabolism useful. Now go out, and live the sunny days that lie ahead to their fullest, following your usual healthy lifestyle!
