How to ‘’turn on’’ your metabolism in the morning
During sleep, your body slows down and turn off many processes. Also, your metabolism is slower. Because of this, you should try certain advice that will give a boost to your metabolism. According to one study, led by scientists from Germany, a person should drink 16 ounces of water as soon he/she wakes up. The water will boost a metabolism for 30% for up to an hour or even longer. After the study, many experts say that it is a good to start your day with a glass of water. Also, you should continue hydrating during the whole day.
The common mistake is that you can save calories if you skip breakfast. Many experts say that breakfast is important for good health. A study, conducted by the Harvard University School of Public Health, found that people who skip breakfast just once a week, have 20% higher chance of developing type-2 diabetes. This is because our insulin levels are flat when we go to sleep. When we wake up, they can go down or spike and then crash after lunch.
One of the most effective strategies to speed up your metabolism is to prevent large insulin spikes. They also make our body stores fat. The best way to achieve this is to eat food rich with protein and fiber for breakfast. Fresh fruit, oatmeal and eggs are the best choice. Besides they will keep your insulin levels normal, you will feel full and satisfied for a longer period. You should avoid food rich in refined carbohydrates (sugary drinks and white flour).
