Before the birth of my second child, I had a sit-down job, when I spent 8 hours at the computer and got up only to have lunch. The most interesting thing is that for lunch I had light meals. For example, I could take mashed potatoes and stewed cabbage in the dining room, and just have a cup of coffee during the breaks. But at one point, I realized that I was still beginning to blur.
It saddened me, because I ate a little, but the sedentary lifestyle on the figure had a negative effect. I could not eat less, and then I began to think about whether I was doing everything correctly and how to improve metabolism.
First of all, I decided to review my diet. I feel very bad if there is a long period of time between meals. At work there were girls who did not have breakfast, then skipped lunch and ate some nonsense such as cookies in the evening. I can’t do that.
It is necessary to eat not 2 and not 3 times a day, but at least 5 times. Now I generally quite often chew something and, of course, these are not buns.
The more often we eat, the faster the metabolism. In no case should not skip breakfast. If you haven’t had breakfast, your body will decide that it is better to save energy and burn fewer calories.
Drinking water needs a lot. This should not be teas and coffee, but pure water. Drink 2 liters needed. I myself, however, do not drink so much, but I try. It even became a habit to drink a glass of warm water on an empty stomach in the morning.
Even if you eat small portions, as I wrote above, but at the same time spend the day sitting at a computer, coming home, and getting up to the stove, what kind of metabolism can we talk about? Need to move as much as possible. The most interesting thing is that the metabolism will increase not only during physical exertion, but also after some time.
Now there are a lot of new fitness areas – bodyflex, cycling, Body Low, etc. But, in fact, it does not matter what you do. It is certainly interesting to come to the mysterious training with the use of hammocks (!), But on the rug at home you can achieve results, the main desire!
Last spring I was interested in one experiment. During the winter, I had a tummy, and I decided to start pumping the press every day. I even wondered myself: can I? When I wanted to quit, I reminded myself: this is only 15 minutes a day. After a couple of months, the stomach disappeared.
No time? Try not to go home by bus, but to walk. Rising to your floor – do not use the elevator.
If you want to lose weight faster, you need to forget about midnight gatherings. It is necessary to sleep at least 8 hours a day. Interestingly, it is important not only the amount of time spent in a dream, but also the time of going to bed. Metabolism will be better if your head touches the pillow at 22-00, and not at 23-00 or 24-00.
The sun also has a beneficial effect on metabolism. No wonder that in winter we accumulate fat faster than in summer. It is equally important to spend time in the fresh air.
With a lack of such important trace elements in the body as calcium, zinc, selenium, iodine, the metabolism slows down and you should add more healthy foods to your diet or purchase a vitamin-mineral complex.
What do you think can improve metabolism?
