Don’t give up so easily. You can boost your metabolism naturally if you are over 40, as long as you are following some simple tips.
8 Tips To Boost Your Metabolism Over 40
Interval workouts can be more effective than regular cardio as they keep your cardiovascular system busy while challenging your muscles. Your muscles can’t get bored and won’t get used to the same old thing. As you are challenging your body, your metabolism is speeding up.
Try HIIT workouts, Tabata and other circuit training, or if you prefer running, swimming, or biking, try interval workouts, mixing your speed up through fartleks and speed work.
Challenge Your Muscles
Exercise is important. Mixing up your exercise routine and challenging your muscles through weight lifting, body weight exercises – such as TRX and functional training – and toning work – such as pilates, barre and yoga – are all beneficial. Protein and other foods I will talk about soon can help your exercise performance and muscle toning as well.
Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water a day. Green juices, smoothies and herbal teas can be great to help with staying hydrated. Skip sodas, sugary drinks and coffee. Being hydrated keeps your body happy and prevents you from overeating. Ice cold water can even boost your metabolism just a bit more.
Proteins are the building blocks of muscle mass, which can boost your metabolism and help your waistline. Eat protein during all meals, including your breakfast to keep your body satisfied. Vary your protein sources. Don’t just rely on meat, poultry or fish, but go for easily digestible, nutritious plant-based sources, including beans, lentils, quinoa, chickpeas and plant-based protein powders, such as Organifi Complete Protein.
