You might be wondering if the title of this article is click-bait, but no it’s not! Indeed, you can speed up your metabolism and lose weight by eating more.
So, what’s the secret? Its Portion control, know what to eat and what time to eat. Once you have this in check you will be on your way to having a leaner body in a short matter of time.
Let’s look at the steps, shall we?
If you start to skip more than 3 or 4 hours without a meal, your system goes in starvation mode and starts storing fats in the wrong places. So, before you go to bed, there is no way your body’s metabolism is going to speed up if you’re on a 1200 calorie a day diet, but if you are eating one big meal in the morning and another big meal at night. Regardless of how unbelievable it might just sound give it an attempt!
As opposed to a few regular size meals every single day, make it 6 small meals! Take a typical meal you normally would eat for your meal and spread it out into two meals. For example, start your entire day with a fantastic breakfast filled with complex proteins and carbs. Eat half of your lunch three hours later and at lunch time eat the rest. Then, three hours after lunch, eat a small meal of vegetables and lean meats, or veggies and fruits, then three hours later eat the other 50 % of your dinner, and finally a higher protein snack a few hours later, before bedtime.
Types of Foods.
Do not Eat sugary Foods, artificial sweeteners and saturated fats. They are lower in fiber and water; therefore, this will slow down digestion, which can cause weight gain and leave you feeling bloated. Instead, fill whole grains to your diet, fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes. If you’re thinking about going vegetarian, many leafy green vegetables also contain protein, we have an article covering this on our site. Fruits, vegetables and whole grain products provide complex carbohydrates which aids in keeping our energy levels up minus the spike in blood sugar levels that is often brought on by processed, sugary foods.
