Five Ways to Rev Up Your Metabolism
Even if a slow metabolism runs in your family, you don’t let genetics decide your metabolic fate! Here are five tips to rev up your metabolism:
Get into some HIIT
Not sure what HIIT stands for? Well, we can let you in on the secret… it stands for High Intensity Interval Training and it’s a sure fire way to stoke your metabolic burners. Rather than jogging at a slow-pace for thirty minutes, throw in a series of sprints to get your heart rate up and burn up those fat stores.
Up your Omega 3
Most of us know we should be eating more fish as part of a healthy diet, but did you know that the fatty acids in fish give your metabolism a boost? As well as fish and seafood you can try flaxseed oil, walnuts, or eggs fortified with omega-3s.
Get some guns
Want to boost your base metabolic rate? Then start pumping some iron! People with higher levels of muscle to fat burn more calories at rest than those who don’t. That means your metabolism is running at a higher rate, even if you skip a gym session.
Drink green tea
Green tea is a natural source of antioxidants and lights a fire under your metabolism. Not only does Zing Green Tea taste great, it also improves fat oxidisation which in-turn helps you manage your weight more easily. Include a few cups of Zing Green Tea throughout your day and watch the weight drop off.
Eat frequent small meals
Although it can be tempting to eat large, filling meals (particularly at the end of the day), your metabolism will benefit from a different approach. Split your three meals into six smaller ones to give your metabolism a much needed boost.
