Our metabolism slows with age👶👧👩👵. The average woman packs on 18-plus kgs by her 50s🙊, if she doesn’t combat the roller coaster of hormones, muscle loss, & stress that conspires to slow her fat-burning engine. But midlife weight gain isn’t inevitable.😃
To boost over-40 weight loss, make sure your each meal is around 400 calories✅, the amount needed to fuel your body while keeping you satisfied, translating into effortless weight loss.💃
The Metabolism-boosting Food Rules🍴 to live by–
1⃣Eat just enough so you’re not hungry–a healthy snack🍎🍑🍌 midmorning and midafternoon between three meals will keep your metabolism humming.
2⃣Caffeine☕️ is a central nervous system stimulant, so your daily java jolts can rev your metabolism 5 to 8%.
3⃣Boost your fiber intake by switching to whole wheat bread🍞, pasta, & eating more fruits🍊 and vegetables🍆. Fiber can rev your fat burn by 30%.
4⃣Drink 6 cups of cold water a day to raise resting metabolism by about 50 calories daily–enough to shed 2.5kgs in a year.
5⃣Always choose organic👌 when buying fruits & vegetables; non-organic versions tend to have the highest levels of pesticides💥.
6⃣Make sure protein🍳🍠 is a component in every meal. Protein can up postmeal calorie burn by as much as 35%.
7⃣Iron-rich foods are essential for carrying the oxygen your muscles need to burn fat.
8⃣Vitamin D🌞 is essential for preserving metabolism-revving muscle tissue. Sources: tuna, shrimp, tofu, fortified milk and cereal, and eggs.
9⃣Skip the second cocktail🍸. When you have an alcoholic drink, you burn less fat, & more slowly than usual, because the alcohol is used as fuel instead.
1⃣0⃣Consuming calcium🍼 through dairy foods such as fat-free milk & low-fat yogurt may also reduce fat absorption from other foods.
