Metabolism is your body process in which food is utilized to produce energy. Energy i.e the vital source of Life needed to fulfill everyday tasks. This is the energy that is required for your beatingheart, for your lungs to take breath for your legs to walk and run and for your brain to think. A metabolism might be fast or slow depending upon too many factors like, hereditary, your body working, your gender, your age etc.
"Do you know how to digest your food? Do you know how to establish, regulate and direct the metabolism of your body so that it builds muscles, bones and flesh? No, you don't know how consciously, but there is a wisdom within you that does know.” (Quote by Donal Curtis)
So how can you achieve this or speaking this is more accurate that how to boost your metabolism. There are several ways for doing so. Lets discuss some of them and see how it is possible.
:: Drinking Enough Water
Does water help to boost your metabolism? The answer is yes. When someone drink more water more fats start burning in return boosting metabolism. This is because your body needs water to break down every gram of carbohydrate. It is recommended to drink approximately 8-10 glass of water daily. If you drink less water that leads you to dehydration as a result metabolism slows down.
:: Increasing Calorie Intake
Increase your calorie intake can also lead to fast metabolism. When you cut down your calorie intake, your body thinks that you are starving. So when you are starving your body automatically slows down metabolism in order to fulfill the basic tasks as discussed before. (like heart beating, breathing, brain working etc) Now a days it is suggested by doctors or nutritionist that specially women must intake more than 1000 calorie a day in order to maintain a good metabolism.
:: Exercise Twice a Day
Break up your exercise routine. It is not right that you get up early in the morning do some exercise and think that you have done your exercise task for that day. No. Do exercise twice a day. First it is necessary to do exercise in the morning and then do exercise in the evening as well. This practice boost up your metabolism. If you do just a 20 -30 minute walk after dinner it will burn an extra 200-300 calories. In addition also try climbing stairs once or twice a day along with your daily routine activities. This will also burn hundreds of calories. In addition always try to have scale with you and keeping track of your weight, this activity also push you to exercise.
:: Laugh More & Take Less Stress
Laugh as much as you can. Watch a good funny movie or video daily. This activity also boost up your metabolism. Now you are thinking how is this possible. First tell you something else. When you take stress, the stress hormones in your body become active and start producing more fats. This in turn also slow down your metabolism. So think if u laugh more then what happens. Almost reverse of the process. So be happy.
