Do you know that the wrong kinds of training and nutrition could slow your metabolism? Here in this blog by CRB Tech Reviews we discuss how to shift it into a high gear.
Let me share good news: You can boost your metabolism! Might not to the extent of your friend you envy, but enough to make you feel less anxious about going back for seconds or having a piece of cheesecake.
Know More About Metabolism
Your metabolism refers to the number of calories you burn in a state of rest. These calories carry out functions essential for survival.
Your metabolism accounts for about 70 percent of the calories you burn per day. The higher the metabolism, the more calories you burn. This means you might be able to eat more calories than a person of similar stature and also maintain your weight. And when you are on diet, this means you might be able to eat more calories to for weight loss, which makes you happier and less-hungry.
Factors You Can Or Can’t Control
Your body frame, not based on your muscle mass, is another factor that affects your metabolism. The larger your body size, the faster your metabolism is likely to be, since your body needs to expend more energy to carry out essential functions across a larger area. And of course genetics influences everything.
Moreover your muscle mass also largely influences your metabolism. And you can directly influence the amount of muscle mass you have through your eating and exercise habits. By proper eating and training to get good muscle growth, you can enhance your metabolism.
How to Boost Metabolism
1. Train With Weights Regularly
Resistance training cause muscle damage, which is necessary for muscular growth. But you don’t have to wait for long to see a boost in your metabolism.
To fully gain the benefits of resistance training, make sure your workout focuses on all the major skeletal-muscle groups with multi-joint movements and multiple sets, and frequently aims at the 8-12-repetition range, and even the 12-20 range on occasion.
2. Go For High-Intensity Exercise
The style of exercise has a major impact on your metabolic rate. After finishing a bout of high-intensity exercise—think intervals or circuit-style resistance training—oxygen consumption is elevated in an attempt to get back the substrates used up during exercise. This rise in EPOC increases energy expenditure, mainly for up to 2 days, which further impacts the metabolic rate long after your session ends.
3. Eat Protein
Consume dietary protein to trigger muscle growth and repair. To maximize protein’s growth response, it’s important that you not only eat enough, but that you must eat it frequently throughout the day.
In addition to eating enough protein at each meal, it’s good to spread your protein out in equal amounts across multiple meals rather than consuming it in just 1-2 large meals and a few protein-poor meals.
4. Don’t Diet Year Round
Long-term dieting practice can badly impact your metabolism, as it causes your body to begin conserving energy, which then lowers your metabolism. For every week you diet, make it a point to spend at least as many weeks off your diet. This will help enough time for your metabolism to be restored to pre-diet levels and enough time to increase muscle mass.
