Need to get slim? Top seven tips for boost metabolism & reduce weight.

1. Eat breakfast every morning!

Whenever you skip your breakfast, you send a message to your body caloric deprivation, which is in a state of fasting for several hours. What do you think your brain will do in these circumstances? Brain will direct the metabolism to slow down to save the calories your body's reserves. Eventually, this habit cause a temporary slowing of metabolism

2. Do not go below 1200 calories per day

If your calorie intake is not sufficient to support the basal metabolism, which will be inevitably slow. Remember that weight loss diets often offer such a calorie cut. After a few weeks, you actually lost weight but you'll also inherited a slower metabolism and you should expect a return of pounds

3. Do not sit after a meal. Walk!

To absorb and digest the food we eat, our body expends energy. Therefore it follows an increase in metabolic activity during the hours after a meal. This is what nutritionists call the thermal effect of food or, more cleverly, thermo genesis food borne. The magnitude of this effect varies by type of the food ingested. Hold for the moment till we return to this point later. Activity such as a little walk after a meal will increases the metabolism & it increases the thermic effect of food. However, if you sit long after a meal, you lose an opportunity to further boost your metabolism and burn more calories

4. Eat more complex carbohydrates

We mentioned previously that the magnitude of the increase in metabolism after a meal depended on what we ate. This means that if you eat a meal high in fat, your body will spend few calories to digest it. In fact, lipids absorbed and digested easily, which is not the case for protein and complex carbohydrates. For example, after a meal rich in protein, your metabolism can literally get carried away. It has already been observed in some people an increase in metabolism of more than 30% after eating a meal high protein. So you store less calories by eating a steak than eating cheese fondue.

However do not conclude to eat steak for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Too much protein is bad for the body, especially for kidneys. Instead, eat more complex carbohydrates (there are many in fruits and vegetables). These foods cause a marked elevation of metabolism, even if it is not as strong as that caused by the digestion of proteins.

5. Avoid heavy meals for 22 hours!

Eating a big meal an hour or two before going to bed is the freeway to reap calories at night. Because of the low dietary thermo genesis that follows, it is advisable to take the last meal of the day at least 4 hours before bedtime.

6. Drink plenty of water

The biochemical activity related to metabolism requires lots of water. If you are not drinking enough water, your metabolism will slow down.

7. Exercise regularly

If you're sedentary and you decide to do 30 minutes of moderate exercise per day, you are not only enjoying many benefits of exercise, also your metabolism will accelerate. By achieving that you will spend 50 to 75 and more calories per day, without even lifting a finger!
