The metabolism may slow as the body ages, but there are many ways to keep it on point and therefore help your weight loss efforts with Phentermine 37.5mg. Learn about some of the best options for keeping your metabolism high and your body working for you.
Consume Protein, Fat, & Carbohydrates With Balance in Mind
Make sure you eat protein, fat, and carb sources in balance to give your metabolism a boost.
“‘PFC Every Three’ is a term I coined that refers to eating a combination of protein, fat, and carbs every few hours to keep blood sugars stable and metabolism turned on,” says registered dietitian Cassie Bjork, RD, LD.
Eating breakfast remains a key weight management practice.
“Your metabolic functions will slow during sleep, which is why it’s so important to properly replenish your body with a nutrient-dense breakfast,” says registered dietitian Rachael DeVaux, RD. Opt for a high-protein breakfast, like cottage cheese on a high fiber cracker. “Not only is consuming protein important for maintaining muscle mass while decreasing breakdown, amino acids are harder for the body to break down, causing you to burn more calories in doing so.”
Quit Counting Calories
While it’s important not to consume an excessive number of calories every day, it shouldn’t define your weight loss efforts.
“When you’re on a mission to boost metabolism, counting calories is the last thing you want to be doing,” says Bjork. “When you deprive your body of the energy it needs, it fights back and actually conserves energy by slowing down your metabolism. When you follow a strict calorie-counting diet, you may not be eating enough, so you’re more likely to feel tired and irritable, have outrageous cravings, and get frequent headaches.”
