Speed Up Your Metabolism With These Centuries-Old Practices
As we get older, our metabolic rate slows down because the ageing process results to a decrease in muscle mass and an increase in the amount of fat stored.
And for all the things that we’re told can slow down our metabolism, there are also numerous ways we can rev it back up.
Here are 3 centuries-old practices that’ll help speed up your metabolism -
Chew your food slowly
It may not be what we eat, but how we chew our food that has an impact on how many calories we burn. Studies show that chewing your food really slowly can help you burn up to 10 calories extra per meal.
Get at least 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep
If you get too little sleep, your metabolism tends to slow down to conserve energy, triggering the release of the stress hormones cortisol. This can also result to an increase in fat cell growth and storage, negatively affecting one’s metabolism.
Steer clear of crash diets
Crash dieting and extreme calorie reductions slow down the metabolism, as it thinks the body is in short supply, by conserving energy. In times like this, the body breaks down the muscle and fat to provide it with the calories it needs to function. This results to slow metabolism - the lesser muscle you have, the slower your metabolic rate is.
