I shared a few tips to Boost Metabolism a day back. You can find them here. Below are some moreย  –

Fuel yourself with Protein

Our body treats calories from carbs, fat and protein differently. It takes more energy for the body to digest protein which kicks up metabolism. Although you want to eat a balanced diet, replacing some carbs with protein-rich foods can boost metabolism.

Embrace antioxidants like Green Tea

Everyone is aware ofย  benefits of Green Tea and Chinese Tea. The best time to have green tea is between meals. According to a research, drinking 2-4 cups of tea may push the body to burn 17% more calories for a short time. You can have green tea during your workout too, for more energy.

Build muscle

Muscles weigh more than fat and uses more energy. The more muscle mass you have, faster will you be your metabolism. You can increase your resting metabolism 100 calories a day if you strength train for 30-40 minutes twice or thrice a week.

Eat superfoods

Certain foods like grapefruit and eggs are known toย  speed up metabolic rate. We have posted a lot of egg recipes in the past few weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

Laugh and Laugh more

10 minutes of laughter per day will help you burn more energy. Watch your favorite show and laugh ๐Ÿ™‚

Sleep

If you are not sleeping for 7-8 hours a day,ย  there are high chances of your metabolism to crash. This will cause weight gain. It is okay to catch up your sleep later if you slept less some day. So maintain yourย  zzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZ :P.

Elevate Iron and Vitamin D in your Diet

Iron is responsible to transport oxygen to tissues throughout the body. Low iron in body leads to fatigue, loss of appetite, anemia, and slow metabolism. Low Vitamin D causes weight gain. People generally keep a check on hemoglobin but miss on Vitamin D. You should get Vitamin D tests done if you are gaining weight.
