Spike Up Your Metabolism And Never Let It Slow Down
Metabolism is a series of chemical processes that occur within our body to expend energy. This is the energy on which we function. Metabolic rates are prone to manipulation and are subjected to increase and decrease based on the activities we perform throughout the day. A high metabolic rate is key in losing weight rapidly. The way our metabolism functions often depend on genetics and care must be taken to work it in such a way that our body continues to burn fat swiftly without slowing down drastically.
Before jumping onto strict workout regimes and stricter diets to amplify the metabolic rate, it is essential to learn about the Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR. This is the rate at which the body burns calories in a sedentary state. If the BMR remains within the normal range you would be spared from undergoing rigorous exercise sessions. On the other hand a low BMR must be altered by adopting some crucial lifestyle changes.
A faster metabolic rate is directly proportional to calorie loss. However, simply exercising without eating adequately yet healthily can put the metabolism in disarray. It is thus advised to incorporate proper food habits along with sufficient activities in our day to day lives to steady the BMR.
The quality of our health is solely in our hands and the onus is on us to determine how we choose to better it. Let us now look at some of the basic ingredients that are needed to construct a highly functioning and healthy body which would continue to sustain us for years to come.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids And Organic Food
Not all fats are harmful for the body. Foods containing the omega 3 fatty acids are considered rich in essential protein and do wonders for the metabolism. It has been observed that consumption of fish oil that has omega 3 fatty acids increase the metabolic rate significantly and the enzymes help break down the stored fats, contributing to as much as a 400 calorie deficit per day.
Consuming super foods or foods that are farm grown are also a great way to not only amp the metabolic rate but also help protect the immune system. The alternative to organic food contains numerous pesticides and not enough antibiotics and antioxidants resulting in the gradual slowing down of the metabolism.
Water (Flavoured or otherwise)
Rigorous swimming and jogging sessions, HIIT, aerobics, dance workouts won’t be nearly as effective if they were not complemented with an adequate dosage of water. Be it cold, lukewarm or water flavoured with citrus fruits, nothing helps loosen the stubborn fat than this miracle drink. Water needs to be replenished in the body after a rigorous workout to help maintain the balance. It aids in digestion, flushes out the toxic waste from the body and is a great way to detox the body.
High Intensity Interval Training

Couple that with Incumbent Cycling, a speciality at Passion Cycles in Exton that offer innovative cycling classes for weight loss and you would feel the difference in your body almost overnight.
