Slow metabolism? Here's how to improve it

All the tips to get rid of that fat you don’t need in your life.

1-Protein intake is really important

In a fat-loss diet plan, you need to increase your protein intake at least 40%, keeping the levels high will ensure you keep hold of all that hard-earned muscle whilst you are losing body fat. You can get your protein from lean, nutrient-dense sources like chicken, smoked salmon, tempeh, and beans.

 

2-Circuit training twice a week can make the difference

For a hard-hitting and efficient full-body workout, circuit training is the preferred method to increase fat burn. Circuit training boosts fat burning after the session because the rest periods are kept very short and the exercises put high demand on your body. Squats, push-ups, and lunges are the best exercises for fat-loss plans.

3-Beware of carbs: develop a strategy

If you cut carbs out completely you are likely to experience cravings and that’s no good for you or anybody that’s why you need to be strategic about it. Besides,  healthy, complex carbohydrates (from unprocessed, plant-based foods) are essential for our energy output as they break down to produce glucose. Also, keeping each meal ratio to about 20% carbohydrates might help boost metabolism and increase fat burn.  

4-Alcohol consumption

Decreasing alcohol (or cutting it from your diet almost completely) will likely do wonders for your metabolism. Alcohol supplies almost twice as many calories as equivalent amounts of protein and carbohydrates. Plus, it is an irritant to the lining of your stomach, gradually weakening your liver and kidneys.

5- Your plate should be 40% fat

Fat has gotten a bad reputation in the past since it has the highest number of calories per gram compared to other macronutrients like carbohydrates and protein. But, it's highly satiating so you'll stay fuller for longer and will likely feel calmer around food in general.

"Fat is actually one of the secret weapons for effective fat loss because it provides energy with the lowest impact on your blood sugar and insulin levels," says David Kingsbury, a celebrity personal trainer and online fitness coach.
