There are a lot of factors that affects a person’s metabolism. They include: body weight and type, age, hormonal changes; specifically in women, muscle mass or the lack of it, type of diet, stress, genetics and the type and amount of physical activity you get on a daily basis. Boosting your metabolic rate involves a lot of factors, and will become relatively easier once you have a plan and are committed to sticking with it.
The key is to have a set course of action to raise your metabolic rate and religiously keeping it on course. Once you realize a breakthrough, that will allow you to feel better about yourself, enjoy your day more and have that extra time and energy to spend with your friends or kids. The end result usually is a combination of eating more of the right foods and actually doing less of the monotonous and strenuous cardio type of exercises, while at the same time losing weight and fat and sustaining your true body weight.
So Here Are Some Steps To Boost Your Metabolism
By function… means the body’s personal biological processes of: circulation, digestion, respiration etc. This is known as the body’s basal metabolic rate or BMR.
If there is any additional activity or burning of calories through exercise, etc. its considered additional to the BMR. Whether you gain or lose weight is always determined by your metabolism rate.
Your basal metabolic rate is also affected by other factors as discussed and the BMR declines naturally as you grow older. The good news is the lost BMR rate can be elevated doing the following:
Raising Your BMR Rate
So by you participating in a regularly scheduled strength training program, you can automatically elevate your metabolism rate effectively and naturally, while enjoying the benefits of increased strength, tone and improved overall cardio fitness.
Perform High Intensity Workouts On A Regular Basis
A person who say performs a slow 30-minute jog will burn an x number of calories during that run, and a certain amount directly after that run.
However, the same person will burn the same amount of calories if they run for just 20 minutes at a higher intense rate, as the body is pushing itself to a higher level. This also results in the body to take longer to cool itself down afterwards. This also usually results in more calories burned in the first hour after the intense run.
Why Eat Multiple Meal During The Day
By also making sure that you eat well balanced nutritional foods with good protein, carbohydrates and fat, you’ll improve the effect even more.
