Boosting your metabolism after 30 can be complicated.
Your body is ageing.
Internal processes of your body can slow down too. It can have negative effects not only on your looks but also on how energized you feel during your day.
But the good news is that there are little-known tricks (that most people don’t know about) that you can take advantage of to put your metabolism in high gear.
This will help you lose weight quickly & easily AND you will more energized.
#1 Take cold shower
This takes some courage, because when you have just woken up, this is not the thing you want to do the most. But the truth is that if you.
Try this method:
- 1 min of warm shower
- 15 sec of cold shower
- 1 min of warm shower
- 30 sec of cold shower
Not only it will kickstart your blood circulation & put your metabolism into higher gear but it also will make you will feel fully awake.
No drastic changes are required!
Simply start turning that shower knob to the “colder” side for couple of seconds. Then turn it back.
The trick number 2 is…
#2 – Eat before bed
You have heard these things for sure. Don’t eat after eight (six, seven) p.m. right?
This myth couldn’t be more wrong.
Study done by researchers at Florida State University found that eating a light snack before bed can actually improve your nocturnal metabolism.
We know: what’s a ‘light snack’? Anything less than 150 calories, preferably rich in protein
#3 – Drink More Cold Water
It is no secret that people who drink water instead of sugary drinks are more successful at losing weight and keeping it off.
However, drinking water may also speed up your metabolism temporarily.
Studies have shown that drinking 0.5 liters of water increases resting metabolism by 10–30% for about an hour
This calorie-burning effect may be even greater if you drink cold water, as your body uses energy to heat it up to body temperature.
Studies also show that drinking water a half an hour before you eat can help you eat less.
Little-known trick #4 is…
#4 – Drink Coffee
A Harvard study of more than 19,000 men found those who got 200 milligrams of caffeine a day were less likely to gain weight over a 12-year period than those who didn’t. Caffeine helps stimulate fat use, especially during exercise.
Next trick is…
#5 – Eat Spicy Foods
Peppers contain capsaicin, a substance that can boost your metabolism.
One study of capsaicin, at acceptable doses, predicted that eating peppers would burn around 10 additional calories per meal.
Alone, the effects of adding spices to your food may be quite small. However, it may be slightly useful when combined with other metabolism-boosting strategies
#6 – Cool down your room
Turn down your thermostat to 17 degrees Celsius.
You will burn 7% more calories than if you were at 23 degrees, says a study from the American National Institute of Health Clinical Center.
#7 – healthy morning rituals
Make sure you eat breakfast.
Eating a nutrient-rich morning meal (like oatmeal with almonds and berries, or a spinach-and-feta omelet with a slice of whole-grain toast) shortly after getting out of bed literally wakes up your metabolism.
Eating breakfast gets the engine going and keeps it going.
It’s hard to argue with these results: According to the National Weight Control Registry (an ongoing study that tracks 5,000 people who lost an average of 66 pounds and kept it off more than five years), 78% of those who keep it off eat an a.m. meal every day.
