Tricks to Boost Your Metabolism

tips to boost your metabolism with a las vegas personal trainer
Do you ever wonder to yourself, “I need all the help I can
get!” when it comes to your metabolism?
If you’re like me, you may not have the greatest genetics or
have been blessed with a rocking metabolism.
Let’s avoid all the “sciency” stuff. Your metabolism is your
ability to burn fat at rest (for instance, while you’re reading this).
Now because you’re over 30, your metabolism may not
function as well as it used to. I remember being able to chug
all my friends’ milk shakes in high school…
… those were the days šŸ™‚
Now if I look at a milkshake, I can gain weight. Ha! Maybe
you can relate?
Anyway, exercise and diet are just 2 ways to increase
your metabolism. But for a lot of us, that’s not enough.
So what can you do?
Here’s 1 simple trick to boost your metabolism…
In 2009, Ā ResearcherĀ Wouter van Marken Lichtenbelt made the
discovery about Non-shivering thermogenesis. Non-shivering
thermogenesis is essentially the heat your body creates when you
feel cool, but not enough to cause shivering.
He wanted to see if this can improve your metabolism…
“More frequent cold exposure alone is not going to save the world
from obesity,” says Lichtenbelt. “But is a serious factor to consider
for creating a sustainable environment along with a healthy lifestyle.”
Recruiting a group of otherwise healthy adults, Lichtenbelt
exposed them to 59 degree temperatures for several hours a day-
a cool, but not freezing, temperature.
After 10 days had elapsed, Lichtenbelt then looked at their
rate of non-shivering thermogenesis.
As a result, he found that all subjects’ showed an increaseĀ 
in thermogenesis (a fancy way of saying “metabolism”),Ā 
burning more calories.
“Indoor temperature in most buildings is regulated to minimizeĀ 
the percentage of people dissatisfied,” the author said.
“This results in relatively high indoor temperatures in wintertime.Ā 
This is evident in offices, in dwellings and is most pronounced inĀ 
care centers and hospitals.”Ā 

By lack of exposure to a varied ambient temperature, wholeĀ 
populations may be prone to develop diseases like obesity.”
What You Should Do
Having trouble losing weight? If regular exercise and dieting aren’t
enough, consider lowering the temperature on your thermostat-
even if it is a bit chilly outside.
Doing so, according to research, could give you the boost in your
metabolism that you need.
After all – we need all the help we can get, right? šŸ™‚
