There are habits that seem unimportant, but they can disrupt the process in your body. Here’s a list of things you are doing it wrong and make your metabolism slower.
Why is that a problem? You are missing a simple and delicious way to temporarily speed up metabolic combustion. Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system, and it is estimated that drinking coffee high in caffeine can speed up metabolism by 15% in just three hours. Add it to the list of positive health effects of coffee: reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Solution: Consume coffee with caffeine. If you have problems with the digestive system, then it is better to switch to a variant with less caffeine in the composition.
Only eat porridge or pastry for breakfast
Why is that a problem? Regular meals enhance metabolism, but only intake of carbohydrates for breakfast hampers their digestion. Combined with this, you need to enter a little more protein for energy and increasing muscle mass.
Solution: Add 20 grams of protein at breakfast – the amount corresponding to one cup of yogurt with a low percentage of fat.
You are not hungry after training so you don’t eat
Why is that a problem? Training muscles exhaust and intake in the right amounts of nutrients an hour after training helps their regeneration.
Solution: Recharge your batteries with a mix of 10 to 15 grams of protein and 15 grams of carbohydrates.
Already the afternoon, and you still haven’t had drink the first glass of water
Why is that a problem? Your metabolism summarizes all the processes in your body produce energy – digestion, muscle contraction, eliminate harmful substances etc. In all, hydration plays a major role – if you are dehydrated, that system may be delayed or work at an optimal level, which again can slow metabolism.
Solution: Stick to the trick that makes you drink more water – set periodic alarm on your watch or smart phone that will serve as a reminder to drink water throughout the day.
You get up at the same time each day, except the weekends
Why is that a problem? Only one “crazy” night on the weekend may disrupt the rhythm of the genes that keep your metabolism fast.
Solution: Make sure during the week to go to bed at the same time, or maximum to get closer to that goal.
