3 Easy and Natural Ways to Boost Your Metabolism
Have you ever wished for a super-fast metabolism? Do you ever imagine what it would be like to eat whatever you want, whenever you want, without any consequences?
You’re definitely not alone. At Kaia FIT Las Vegas, we won’t deny that indulgent eating sounds fun (and tasty). But our bodies are biological machines. To treat our bodies right, we need to fuel them properly. You and your body deserve the very best. Anything less would be a great injustice.
If you search the Internet, there sure are a lot of interesting ways to speed up your metabolism. But what actually and naturally works? We’ve rounded up the most effective and healthy pointers to give your body that longed-for boost!
1. Food Is Fuel
Just like diesel doesn’t go in a gasoline powered car, there are ways to properly fuel our bodies.
In terms of nutrition, the very first step to speeding up your metabolism is eating small, well-balanced, whole-food meals throughout the day. Simply stated, it’s about eating the right foods at the right times. Take a peek at our Kaia Nutrition Programs; we’ve assembled easy and nutritious recipes that won’t break the bank or leave you feeling like you’re driving on empty.
Have you tried any of the recipes we’ve recommended? Which ones? How about the chocolate chia seed pudding? Which recipes have you prepared more than once? Have you shared any with family or friends? Which is your favorite?
We encourage you to start working our recipes into your daily eating if you haven’t already. In the meantime, here are some other quick, easy tips you can try now:
- Having a hearty breakfast
- Drinking plenty of water
- Cutting back on sugar
All of us are busy and have plenty in our lives to think about. That’s why keeping it simple is key!
2. Get Moving
Time to work out! You already know exercise is important. But did you know that after the age of 30, women lose around 1% of their muscle mass per year? Pretty scary when we think about it! But we have some good news: muscles are an automatic metabolism booster. What exactly does that mean? Let’s dive into what works best for speeding up your metabolism.
Now, get ready: it’s easy!
Simple body weight exercises like push-ups and squats can help with your efficiency. Exercises like sled pushes and body weight rows off a TRX can ease your mind, giving the same benefit as finding your Zen in yoga, and boost your metabolism! It’s a twofer that’s always a win in our book!
And it gets even easier!
When you’re not exercising with your sisters at Kaia FIT, metabolism-boosting movement can be as simple as lifting your kids or carrying groceries. The goal is to keep your muscles moving and healthy.
Like we said before, your body is a machine—and machines get rusty when you don’t keep them in use.
3. Get Some Rest
Once we women set our minds to something, there is no stopping us. That go-go-go, accomplish-and-achieve attitude kicks some serious glutes, girl! But we do need and deserve rest. Recharge and refresh the machine that is your body so you can keep running strong and keep that metabolism up.
Keep recovery in mind. Listen to your body. Know your body and understand what it needs. If you are in pain or feel overworked, take a recovery day—that’s totally acceptable. Although you may feel like recovery is not doing much for your metabolism, your body is in constant function. Lean muscle mass burns approximately 50 calories a day at rest—so even when you’re resting, you’re working!
Eating right, exercising, and taking care of yourself (including rest) is easier and way more fun with a good support system.
