“Increase metabolic rate, lose weight”

There are no forms of dieting that could stop you from grow bigger. Most are only fads and instead of giving you the results you once hoped for and worked for, they leave you frustrated and well, sometimes hopeless. Well, worry no more. There are these 7 effective moves towards a healthier, sexier you!!!

1) Sleep well, live well. According to studies, people who just have 4 hours of sleep at night have slower metabolism than those who have 8-hour sleep. Moreover, the former resort to overeating since they feel like eating would cover up the lack of sleep. You must have enough sleep for you to feel revived after every “wake up”.

2) Sweat  a little in the evenings. There is recent research that tells us that our metabolism tends to slow down  late in the afternoon or at the end of the day. So, in order for you to burn more calories, it is wise to do some evening walks and other exercise forms that would allow you to sweat it out and burn calories.

3) Do not be a slow mover! Move rapidly. As you move more, you burn more calories. Instead of taking a ride to a near-by  place, walking is a better choice. You must gradually make minor lifestyle changes. These are just so minor  you will not have a hard time. It is a  fact that these may be so easy for you will not need hard work. This could be as easy as using the stairs instead of taking the elevator, do gardening instead of watching TV too much all day long.

4) Eat more proteins. Diet studies show that protein intake stabilizes the amount of insulin in the bloodstream. It is highly-beneficial for you.

5) Eat meal on schedule. Skipping meals is skipping life. A drastic change for your body is not good. Never dwell on the idea that missing a meal would make your waistline look well-carved.  If you skip meals  you are living an unhealthy life. Whenever you do a sudden stop in eating, your body will react to it in such a way that it will slow down its metabolic rate.

6) Sweat out a bit with some exercise. Exercise does not directly result in  better metabolism because not all of its forms are really applicable.  But it leads to  better sleeping habits. And, sleeping increases metabolism.

7) Most of all grow lean muscles. Having more  of these lean muscles will mean a better   metabolism. A few push-ups and squats daily are of big help. Just bear in mind that it is not all about working out but considering the metabolism of your body .A good work out is great therapy for your  body and your spirit.

There you have it. Seven moves toward your goals. Never let go of the hope that you will have  a healthier, sexier and better life!!!
