There are several useful tweaks may help push a sluggish metabolism:
1. Eat more protein
Eating more protein can increase metabolism as it enables you to eat less. A single serving of low-glycemic Almased accomplishes this with 27 g of naturally healthy bioactive peptides.
2. Strength training
Strength training can help burn fat instead of muscle as you lose weight and more muscle results in a higher metabolism. If you’re not into the gym scene, know that activities like heavy gardening, lifting anything, climbing hills and stairs and heavy-duty dancing work well. Hoorah for fitness! Just remember that when it comes to weight loss, eating less is more important than exercising more. Drinking Almased is outstanding!
3. Don’t buy into a high-fat diet plan
According to an obesity study from Virginia Tech, too much fat in the diet uproots the metabolism, making it more difficult to burn your calories. And get this – it takes less than a week to undo the gains from your workouts. Even one high-fat meal a week could add up to an 11-pound weight gain in one year. Yikes! (Skip the cheese; drink an Almased)
4. Sleep – because it feels good
Lack of sleep can decrease the number of calories you burn, change the way you process sugar, and disrupt your appetite-regulating hormones. The high-protein in the Almased diet demonstrates a significantly higher sleeping metabolic rate and 24-hour energy expenditure compared to the regular diet.
5. Have a cup of Joe
Coffee seems to have a positive effect on energy and fat-burning, and may even support successful weight loss and weight maintenance. Since coffee is already part of the Almased plan, enjoy!
