Simple and valuable rules to help us speed up our metabolism and lose weight and avoid metabolic problems in the body.
A healthy and balanced breakfast is the first step in the fight against excess weight. Having eaten properly in the morning, you will eliminate hunger until lunchtime and will not be distracted by unnecessary snacks.
A competent breakfast is rich in protein, fibre and healthy fats. For example, wholemeal products, eggs, nuts, vegetables.
There are plenty of healthy meals that are good for morning meals. Here are a few of these options.
PP breakfast options:
- All-grain bread with pieces of avocado and flax seeds, and pour olive oil on top.
- Oatmeal pancake with nuts or salmon slices, dressed with skimmed cream cheese.
- Whole-grain oatmeal porridge with almonds and bananas.
- Natural yoghurt dressed with a mixture of dried fruits and walnuts.
Sleep and water.
Short and intermittent sleep can severely slow down metabolism and disrupt metabolism in the body, thereby negate the process of weight loss. The same rule applies to water. Try to drink at least the minimum daily amount of fluid.
Interesting fact: Our body often confuses thirst with hunger. And when we just need to drink a glass of water, we go to the kitchen instead, looking for an unnecessary snack.
By the end of the day, our metabolism is slowing down considerably. And if you want to lose weight, take it as a rule, to go out after dinner. In this way, you will help your body to quickly assimilate the food it eats and not to store its surplus in the form of fat reserves. And also to accelerate the metabolism for a few more hours even after the end of the walk.
Good nutrition before bedtime.
Do not eat foods with a high glycemic or insulin index before going to bed. Even a harmless, fat-free cottage cheese eaten overnight can block the work of the somatotropin hormone. Which is responsible for burning fat in the body during the night’s sleep. Also, refrain from fruit and sandwiches. Replace them with vegetables, nuts and rich protein.
Don’t miss a meal.
Always carry a small portion of healthy snacks with you in case you miss a meal. Do not allow a long feeling of hunger, it causes a slowdown in metabolism and includes a function in the body to prevent burning fat. In so doing, the body protects itself from the harmful effects of hunger. A handful of nuts or dried fruits will help you avoid these situations
