Is the number on the scale not going down, despite your efforts of healthy eating? Several factors, other than your diet, can slow down your metabolism. Spring is in the air and other than spring cleaning your diet, read on to learn how Almased can help get your metabolism moving again.
5 TIPS ON HOW TO RESET THE METABOLISM
1. Get enough sleep
Americans get an average of 6.8 hours of sleep. Experts recommend at least seven to nine hours a night. Lack of sleep can wreak havoc on your metabolism in several ways. It can cause insulin resistance, glucose intolerance, which then can lead to type 2 diabetes. These are variables of an equation that can lead to weight loss plateaus. Try to establish a regular sleep routine and while counting sheep, you can start counting down the numbers on the scale.
2. Start your day with a high-protein meal
Make sure to have a high-protein breakfast to jumpstart your metabolism for the day. According to researcher Heather J. Leidy, Ph.D., in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Physiology at the University of Missouri, a high protein breakfast can prevent body fat gain by reducing hunger and daily food intake. Almased has 27 grams of protein per serving. Create a delicious breakfast smoothie with the recipes provided on almased.com to ensure you’re getting enough protein in your breakfast.
3. Make sure you’re hydrated
Most people are not drinking enough water, and that can be detrimental to weight loss and overall health. You should be drinking half your weight in water in ounces. For example, a 160-pound person should be drinking about 80 ounces a day. Keeping yourself hydrated while on Almased can keep your hunger at bay throughout the day.
4. Keep stress under control
The stress of life can take a toll on your weight loss goals. Stress can cause an increase in the hormone cortisol, which is linked to increased abdominal fat. Learn how to meditate or take a breather when work or life becomes too much. Free smartphone apps are available to help you take a 4-5 minute break to de-stress. Meditating can help you reset your stress hormones and prime your body for weight loss and a positive mood.
5. Lift weights
Going for a run can help get your heart pumping but weight training can really get your metabolism revving. How? By increasing muscle mass, you increase your resting metabolic rate which in turn, causes your body to burn more calories. This is why adding weight training 3 times a week to your exercise program can really get your metabolism moving. Plus, when you use Almased, the high protein in Almased can support muscle retention as well as growth.
