Metabolism is an important factor that can help an individual to maintain their weight but it also depends on a few things. There are individuals with high and fast metabolism rates.

The metabolic rate of the body per individual is certainly varies from one another. People with more muscle tissue will have higher body metabolism than those with more fat.

As your body metabolism increases, it’s easier for you to lose weight. This is because weight is something that is closely linked to the body’s metabolism system that works to burn excess fat.

As such, someone with high body metabolism; you can see they eat a lot but the body is still lean.

Here’s a few tips on how you can increase your metabolism;

Build muscle
Even if you do nothing, your body will constantly burn calories. However, this metabolic rate is higher in individuals with more muscle.

Each pound of muscle consumes 6 calories a day to maintain its shape, while fat burns just 2 calories per day. After a workout session (strength training), the average rate of metabolism will increase.

Drink a lot of water
An individual who drink plain water instead of sugary drinks are more likely to lose weight and maintain weight. This is because sugary drinks contain calories, so replacing them with plain water indirectly reduces your calorie intake.

Drinking more water also helps to improve metabolism, as the body needs water to process calories. The effect of calorie burning will be better if you drink cold water, as the body will use energy to adjust it to body temperature.

Aerobic exercise may not really build your muscles, but it can increase your metabolism rate within hours after doing muscle-building activities. The most important thing is to strengthen your desire and inspiration to do it.

High-intensity workouts provide greater and longer metabolic rate increases compared to low or moderate-intensity exercises.

Stand up
Sitting for a long time is not good for your health. This is because it will only burn calories at low rates and tends to cause weight gain. If you stand up in the afternoon while doing and finishing your work, you can burn more extra calories.

Green tea and oolong
Both of these tea drinks are said to help boost metabolism by up to 4 and 5%. This type of tea help to convert the body’s fat into free fatty acids, which can burn up to 10 to 17% of fat. It is a low-calorie beverage, but it is good for reducing and maintaining weight.

Healthy snacks
Eating more often will be able to help you lose weight. When you eat a big meal in a go, it will keep you full for a short time of period the only and your metabolism will be low and slow.

Consuming healthy snacks in small quantities for every 3 to 4 hours, will give a shock to the metabolism and causes calorie burn to be more than normal.

Spicy food
Chilis contain capsaicin which is a natural chemical that can increase your metabolism. The effects may be temporary, but if you regularly eat spicy foods, they may increase their benefits. However, not everybody can receive and take spicy food too often.

Your body burns more calories digested by protein rather than fats or carbohydrates. For a well-balanced diet, you can replace some carbohydrates with protein-rich foods to boost metabolism at night.

Some good sources of protein include lean meats, turkeys, fish, lean meat, tofu, legumes, nuts, eggs, and low-fat dairy products.

If you are a coffee enthusiast, you will definitely enjoy the energy and increased attention you get. If you take it in moderate quantities, one of the short-term benefits of coffee is that it can increase your metabolism by 3-11% and is just like green tea – it also helps burn fat.

Coffee helps you reduce fatigue and improve endurance during exercise.

Lack of sleep tends to increase the risk of obesity. This may be due to the negative effects of not getting enough sleep on the body’s metabolism. Insufficient sleep is also associated with increased blood sugar and insulin resistance, which is linked to the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
