Simple Ways to Lose Your Weight: 4 Ways to Help Boost Your Metabolism

Simple Ways to Lose Your Weight: 4 Ways to Help Boost Your Metabolism

Losing weight doesn’t have to be a grueling and painful process. There are simple ways to lose weight without counting calories, restricting the foods you can eat or limiting portion sizes.

However, boosting your metabolism is paramount to losing weight.

By boosting your metabolism, you’re increasing the amount of time it takes for your body to burn the calories it consumes and that’s huge.

Simple ways to lose weight: build muscle

Our bodies are constantly burning calories, even when we’re not doing anything and this resting metabolic rate is much higher in people with more muscle. When you work out, muscles are activated all over your body, which increases your metabolic rate—or how fast your body burns calories.

Simple ways to lose weight: drink more water

The body needs water to process calories, which is why your metabolism slows down even if you are only mildly dehydrated. In one study, adults who drank eight or more glasses of water a day burned more calories than those who drank four. Try drinking water before and after every meal and snack so you can get your daily water fix and keep those pounds off.

Simple ways to lose weight: don’t be afraid to snack more often

Don’t eat large meals with hours in-between because that is what's making you hungry throughout the day. Your metabolism slows down between meals so having a small snack every 3-4 hours keeps your metabolism going, so you burn more calories throughout the day. This also helps with portion control because people who snack regularly throughout the day eat less at meal time.

Simple ways to lose weight: avoid crash diets

Avoid crash diets. They’re called crash diets for a reason. Some crash diets ask you to eat fewer than 1,000 calories a day and that just won’t work. You need more nutrition than that.

Try a diet meal delivery program like bistroMD
