These tips for losing weight and speeding up your metabolism will enable you to lose quite a bit of weight. You may even lose pounds and inches. Combined with an overall health and wellness program these tips to lose your extra pounds will really supercharge your entire program. Now everyone thinks that there is some magic secret to speeding up your metabolism but there is not. In reality it all comes down to eating the right types of food and having some type of daily activity.
Step 1: Try adding spicy foods to your menu. Foods like cayenne pepper, black pepper and even turmeric have been known to speed up your metabolism and increase your body temperature.
Step 2: Eat small meals throughout the day. I would usually recommend that you eat within the first hour of waking up and that this meal contain a nice amount of protein along with some good healthy fats like avocados or olive oil Chia seeds or flaxseeds.
After breakfast I would suggest that you usually eat every three 3 – 4 hours. So this means that you would have a nice breakfast followed by snow then you will have lunch and then a snack after lunch and finally a breakfast. Usually I recommend that females eat approximately 3 – 4 ounces of protein at breakfast lunch and dinner and then you can even have an extra answer to a protein as her snacks during the course of the day.
Now some people just do not do well with having breakfast so if you are someone that cannot really eat first thing in the morning and is perfectly fine just eat when you are able to.
Step 3: Make sure that you eat. A lot of people think that if they do not eat if they starve themselves that they would lose more weight but this is totally not true. If you do not eat your body will actually think that it is starving and it will burn your good quality lean muscle for fuel in save your fat. And to make it even worse whatever amount of food that you are eating is going to be stored as fat. So make sure that you are eating several times a day small frequent meals consisting of proteins vegetables and good healthy fats.
Step 4: Get up and move. Do some type of physical activity each and every day. You can go for a 30 minute walk first thing in the morning or even at the end of the day and let’s not forget that during your lunch break you can enjoy a great 30 minute walk. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Ride a bike or walk instead of driving. Play a game of basketball with your friends. Enjoy an exercise class with your friends. Just do something and move.
Step 5: Perform some type of resistance exercises. It doesn’t matter if you are using your body weight as resistance or exercise bands or even free weights. When you combine resistance training with cardiovascular exercise you will get the maximum fat burning results.
Step 6: Stick to your plan. A lot of people start with a lot of excitement when they first begin their weight loss program. And often times if they eat something that is not on your food plan they wind up getting terribly upset and give up their whole fitness and weight loss endeavor. I have to tell you that losing weight and keeping the weight off is all about making lifestyle changes.
So if you mess up one day or even two or three days do not become discouraged and quit. We are talking about changing your body and your health for the rest of your life. So just start back on your program the next day. In fact it’s not a bad idea to have a scheduled cheat meal every week in your program.
