1 Develop Muscles

It's a well known fact that Muscles produce more energy than fat, even if your in rest. This is why weight training is so important! It is the perfect way to spice up your slow metabolism even when doing nothing. So Ladies grab those weights and start pumping!

2 Move intensively

Cardio is also one way to highten your metabolism. It won’t build any muscles but it will cause you to use up more energy in hours after training. Try interval and HIT training this boosts up the best, because as soon as your heart rates down again it jumps right back up! The perfect combination for a training is weight training in combination with cardio. (DO CARDIO AFTERWARDS!)

3 Drink a lot of water

The body needs water to remove all of the toxins from your body, with to little water a day it may slow down your metabolism. Water also helps the organs function at their very best. They say drinking ice water will spice up that metabolism even more!

4 Eat more portions

Three big meals might have been the way you where eating all your life! I know i had the same thought, but apparantly eating more meals a day is healthier and more stimulating. It not only supports your metabolism but it makes sure your sugar level does not drop to a.. IM CRAVING EVERYTHING MOMENT…as we all have been eye to eye to the cookie jar one to many times during these cravings.
When I crave things, or I am really hungry I just eat several small bites and drink water with them. This will already send a signal to your brain that you are not only craving that delicious large extra cheese pizza, but food in general.
So stick to 5-7 meals a day! I eat every two hours, to make sure I keep on track. Once you get the hang of it, it will be fun. Oh and don’t forget breakfast, you are not the only one who needs to wake up, your metabolism does to!

5 Eat Proteins

Proteins are super super super mue importante for your muscle growth and are way harder to break down than fats or carbs, meaning it will take up more energy so longer without the munchies. This does not mean you should only eat proteins, although some follow protein diets, you must follow a healthy balance diet off the food chart. It is important that your food contains enough nutrients, certain vitamins and minerals needed to function optimally.
Healthy proteins can be found in tofu, eggs, fish, lean pig meat and ox, nuts, beans and milk products.

6 Drink Green tea

Green Tea has been known for it's metabolism booster and is used in many fat burners and or other supplements to help you lose weight. Drink a cup of tea with each meal, it will stimulate your fat loss process. Or check out Tiny Teatox from my previous posts here.

7 Avoid Crash diets

Crash Diets with less than 1000 calories are disastrous for your metabolism. These diets often cause you to lose weight fast, but it will affect muscle loss. Meaning that your metabolism will slow down and eventually make you fat or fatter than before! Unless you are really detoxing and cleansing your body and following a 2/3 day cleanse (with professional help) i would definitely stay away from the crash diet!

8 Sleep

Enough sleep will boost your metabolism, if you don’t sleep enough it will affect the way you crave and break down carbs due to glucose intolerance. Also when tired we tend to eat more.

I will post a food diary one of these days to give you some extra motivation, because we all know summer 2017 is coming (and everybody wants to look fab for Christmas and New Years.)
