Everyone wants to lose weight quickly, but there is no magic pill that can make you thin in a month. However, there are several ways that you can jumpstart your weight loss by increasing your metabolism.
This is the most basic and easiest way to jumpstart your weight loss. Drinking a lot of water and detoxifying herbal teas will help you flush all the harmful toxins from your body, boosting your metabolism by improving the efficiency of your thyroid functioning. Drink five glasses of water daily at the very least to keep your body at its best. Drinking a lot of water and herbal teas, especially first thing in the morning and before meals, will also curb your hunger and prevent you from binge eating.
Your diet, your workout, and all the water that you consume will go to waste if you fail to get enough quality sleep. Good sleep helps to keep your hormones and your mood balanced. If your hormones and your mood are balanced, then your body will function more efficiently and will keep all your unnecessary cravings at bay. Make sure to give yourself a peaceful night of at least eight hours.
Drinking hot lemon water early in the morning before breakfast helps fire up your metabolism.
Another way you can fire up your metabolism is by having a health shot of lemon, honey, ginger, and turmeric first thing in the morning. It might taste disgusting, but it has a dramatic impact on your metabolism.
Being adequately hydrated before and during your workout can improve your workouts by decreasing fatigue. This can allow you to work out longer and burn more calories.
Exercises that keep your heartbeat up are another way to burn a lot more calories and jumpstart your weight loss. You can add exercises like planks, burpees, and jumping jacks to get your heart pumping.
Some studies have shown that people who have a habit of fidgeting or bouncing their knees can burn up to 500 more calories a day.
Spicy food burns more calories during digestion because it can fire up your metabolism. Add a few more spicy foods, like hot peppers, to your diet. You can add jalapeno in almost any dish you like, even in your eggs. Spices also add a ton of flavor with little to no calories.
I don’t care if you are in a hurry, EAT BREAKFAST. Skipping meals is one of those dietary pitfalls most folks indulge in. We don’t have time. We’re hoarding calories for dinner. We have a meeting. Stop making excuses for not taking care of yourself.
Spreading your intake out over the course of the day will keep you properly fueled, prevent you from overindulging, and keep your metabolism working at peak form. Don’t make your body guess when you will feed it again. Regulate your energy by eating at regular intervals.
Pre-slice vegetables and fruit. Put them front and center in your fridge so they are the first items you see when you need a quick snack. It also makes it really easy to toss them into omelets salads, casseroles and soups. If you don’t have time to slice your own fruits and veggies, you can find pre-cut/pre-sliced fruits and veggies in most grocery stores.
Losing weight is not meant to be sprint, it’s a marathon. These tips should be practiced along with a healthy diet and exercise for best results, but they may be able to give your body that little extra boost it needs to power into weight loss mode.
If you feel like you’ll never lose weight, get fit, or feel good again or think it’s not possible to get your energy back, motivation up, or body feeling and looking good again, the key to a healthy and vibrant life is RIGHT HERE.
