1. Eat every three hours or so as this will keep your metabolism running in ‘high gear’ for extended periods. If you are unable to eat every 3 hours try incorporating protein shakes into your routine.
2. Drink several cold glasses of water a day. Odd but true because your body needs to work on warming up the water in your body.
3. Eat the right fat such as nuts, eggs, avocados, nut butter like almond and peanut butter.
4. Get plenty of rest, as a sleep deficit reduces you’re the ability to metabolize carbohydrates and impairs the function of your endocrine system.
5. Eat organic when possible as growth hormones and antibiotics found in most modern food production hampers your immune system and slows down metabolism.
6. Utilize Omega-3 fats as the consumption of oily fish with omega-3 increases the fat-burning enzymes in the body and lowers the level of fat that is stored.
7. Grab some extra protein as your body needs this to maintain lean muscle and the bonus is that it boosts post meal caloric burn.
8. Stay active whenever possible. Tough to do when you’re stuck behind a desk but you have to keep certain enzymes working to burn the fat and keep your metabolism working!
9. Enjoy your tea or coffee because the caffeine will definitely keep your metabolism rolling and fundamentally help you burn calories.
10. Eat fiber rich foods with a target of at least 25 grams per day as your body needs to work on breaking down the fiber and thus increases your metabolic rate.
