We often find that the extra kilos go away very slowly and that the balance needle is struggling to go down. Yet we have followed to the letter all the indications of the diet, without even failing once.
If despite our efforts we are unable to lose weight, and if there are no other pathologies, such as thyroid problems, it means that the metabolic mechanism has undergone a sudden slowdown.
Metabolism is nothing more than the set of biochemical processes, which allows us to extract energy from the foods we ingest.
3 daily habits to follow to reactivate your slow metabolism and stop gaining weight
The difficulty in losing weight depends on some factors, as explained in the previous article entitled “Let’s pay attention to these 2 bad habits because they are the cause of slow metabolism”.
Now, instead, let’s see how to reactivate this metabolic mechanism and try to lose weight.
The first habit to follow is to sleep properly. That’s right, sleeping the “famous” 8 hours a night is important to recover psychophysical well-being.
Not only that, sleep helps balance your hormonal status, hence your hunger and satiety level.
The second habit to follow is to eat often, not skipping breakfast or lunch and dinner.
Eating within an hour of waking up speeds up your metabolism which slows down during the night.
Fasting or skipping lunch or dinner, then, means getting very hungry at the time of the next meal and consequently eating more.
To speed up our metabolism, we never let a lot of time pass between meals. Eat little but often. Of course we prefer light but nutritious meals.
The third habit we should follow is to integrate more protein into our diet. Fish, meat, unripened cheeses, eggs. They are essential for speeding up the metabolism.
This does not mean completely eliminating carbohydrates from our diet. But avoid the refined ones, which are assimilated very quickly by the body and which lead to hunger in a short time.
Let’s also remember to exercise, drink plenty of water and eat seasonal fruit and vegetables.
So here are 3 daily habits to follow to reactivate your slow metabolism and stop gaining weight.
