Feel like you’ve tried every fad diet under the sun? Step away from the cookbook and focus on making these healthy lifestyle tweaks instead to lose weight, fast. Adapt these tricks to kick start your metabolism.
BE A MINDFUL EATER:
It is easy to overeat when you are eating some extra deliciousness with no distraction. Always chew food longer and eat shelled food than non-shelled ones. It can trick your mind into eating less.
ADD AVOCADO IN YOUR DIET:
Simply adding some avocado to your lunch every day will fill you up enough that you won’t be mindlessly munching on junk food later.
PREP YOUR MEALS IN ADVANCE
When you plan an entire week of dinner in advance, you’re way less likely to go off course and indulge in foods that aren’t good for you. Moreover, you are more likely to get your intake of proteins, carbs, and fats.
INCREASE YOUR GREEN TEA INTAKE:
Green tea increases your metabolic rate by 4 percent. By having three cups of green tea a day, you could burn an extra 60 calories a day, which equals about six pounds a year!
TAKE IRON SUPPLEMENTS FOR A FASTER METABOLISM:
If you don’t have enough iron in your diet, your body can’t get enough oxygen to your cells, which slows down your metabolism. Taking iron supplements can speed-up your metabolic process.
STAY SUPER HYDRATED:
Increasing your current water intake by 1.5 liters a day, a person would burn an extra 17,400 calories a year, resulting in about a five-pound weight loss. Still not convinced to increase your water intake?
TAKE UP A NEW SPORT:
The more you do an activity, the more your body adapts to it, so you burn fewer calories. If you want to light a fire under your metabolism, consider cross-training. For example, if you normally walk, try biking instead
GET MORE SLEEP:
Sleeping less can actually make you gain weight. Always have 7-8 hours of sleep every day. When you’re exhausted, your body lacks the energy to do its normal day-to-day functions, which includes burning calories efficiently.
