How Much Will Kick-start Metabolism In A Morning?

Postby Meridith » Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:54 pm

I detest eating breakfast, it makes me feel physically ill, but since I've decided to lose a little bit of weight, I know that I should eat some... How much is enough? Would half a slice of toast do? I know little and often is the rule too... so I could top up with a slice of fruit a few hours later - but very early before school half a slice of toast is all I can manage... Am I slowing down my metabolism or getting it working with this?

Do a stretch/warmup each morning when first getting out of bed. Then eat breakfast. Don't exercise (jogging, aerobics, cardio) until either mid-morning or mid-afternoon. Walking you can do first thing, that's low impact, so doesn't matter when you do that. You will need to add something to the routine that gets the blood pumping though.

Metabolism is essentially the speed at which our body's motor is

running. The speed at which our body burns calories is called the metabolic

rate. It's how fast your "motor" is running when you're still in a

reclined position or sleeping. About 60-75% of energy is expended by the

body at rest in such activities.

The metabolism is based on the number of calories we burn throughout

the day. Our body constantly burns calories to keep us going whether we

are eating, sleeping, cleaning etc. People with a lower percentage of

body fat (i.e. muscular) have a higher metabolism than others that are

less muscular because muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than

fat. Some people have a slower metabolic rate and have a harder time

staying slim. Younger persons have higher (faster) metabolism because of

the increased activity of cells. A slow metabolism actually causes to

store fat. The slower the metabolic rate, the greater the weight gains.

How to build muscles to improve metabolism? What type of exercise is

ideal that speed up metabolism so that you burn calories even at rest or

sleep? There are simple exercises that speed up the metabolism.

Causes for Low Metabolism

* Fasting

* A low calorie diet

* Snacking throughout the day on high sugared foods (candy, colas,

cakes, gum).

* Eating or drinking too much sugar containing foods.

* Lack of physical activity.

* Underactive thyroid.

Metabolism Boosters

There are some natural metabolism boosters (natural foods) that

improves your metabolism. Do not take over the counter pills containing animal

thyroid extract that claim to boost up metabolism. These products may

have side effects as diarrhea, increased heart rate, excessive

sweating, nervousness, tremors, bulging eyes, etc.

How to Improve (Speed up) Metabolism

* Do not skip any meals

* Exercise daily

* Build your muscles

* Avoid alcohol, sugar, and fastings

*Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.

*Eat foods with high nutrition values

You are correct to eat a breakfast to keep your body from signaling your metabolism to slow down and conserve.
If you don't, especially after an 8-12 average fast (break-fast) over night without food or water, your body will sense you are starving and slow the metabolism down to conserve fuel.
In addition, it will more readily stock pile fat stores for what it has been signalled is a famine.

A half slice of toast will not do it.
Neither will a whole piece.
I would suggest a small to moderate portion of a whole grain bread (fiber to keep the calories moving out and to soak up fat) and a source of protein such as lowfat cheese, cottage cheese or an occasional egg.

Also, take a multi vitamin since during dieting you will probably not be getting everything in the way of vitamins and minerals that you need.

Then, have a mid morning small snack such as one of these

1 cup cantelope (35 calories)

1/2 banana




and a glass of skim milk.

This way you can spread a normal dieting breakfast over a few more hours.
You will get the food you need to actually lose more weight and will keep your blood sugar at a good level so that you won't get sluggish later on.
