18 Sep Tip 20- Fix your Broken Metabolism
Posted at 18:28h Health In A Hurry 0 Comments
We lose about 10% of our metabolism with every passing decade. This is due to skipping meals, lack of activity and decreasing muscle mass.
The worst culprit (the one I did for years) is skipping meals. I’d get up early, drink coffee and not eat until lunch. By that time, my body was starving, so I would overeat. By starving my body I had triggered the mechanism that caused my body to store the majority of its calories as fat.
Today’s tip: Eat every three hours. You pack snacks for your kids, why not pack one for yourself? I always have a protein bar, an apple, and an ounce of nuts or seeds in my briefcase. Studies show that people who eat 3-4 times a day are the leanest.
