Getting older sucks. It does. Anybody who says otherwise is probably lying. Besides a whole bunch of things not quite working the same as when you were twenty, there is one for sure thing that slows down, your metabolism.
When I was twenty something, if I found that I put on a little extra weight, no problem! I would just head to the gym, start doing a little running, eat cleaner and the weight disappeared in no time. Oh I loved my twenties.
As I near the 50 mark, the weight doesn't seem to come off as quick. What is with that. I am sure there are others out there like me wondering "How can I boost my metabolism to help quicken the weight loss".
Here are some tips for you. Now it's up to you if you do it or not.
Eat protein often. Don't just consume the majority of your protein at dinner time. Spread it out. By eating protein with every meal and snack, you will develop more muscle retention and growth which will help boost your metabolism.
Get some sleep. You have probably heard that a million times. It's true though. By having a consistent sleep pattern, the release of hormones like melatonin and growth hormone will help govern your metabolic rate. If you have trouble getting a good nights sleep try the Isagenix Brain and Sleep Support System. It's awesome.
Reduce your stress. Stress is in everyones lives. I don't know if anyone lives without at least a certain amount of stress on a daily basis. The problem is it has a big effect on your body. Your hormonal systems get all mess up, which usually causes you to eat more and exercise less. That doesn't help the old waistline.
Do Intermittent fasting. Perform regular nutritional cleansing! No, not the poopy colon cleanse. Nutritional cleansing provides your body with a “reset” for your appetite, metabolism, and insulin sensitivity. Cleanse Days enable your body and metabolic processes to operate more efficiently.
Regular Exercise. Bet you never saw this one coming. It's no secret. No Exercise, No Metabolism, No Skinny Jeans. What exercising to do can be confusing though. You want to include a combination of resistance, aerobic, and stretching in your weekly routine. Your objective is not just calories burned, but to also boost your body’s metabolism and response to exercise through recovery and rebuilding.
So there you have it. No excuses to get off the couch and into your skinny jeans.
