The metabolic activity in your body gets a beating from junk food and supplements full of stimulants. Given below are some guidelines to boost metabolic activity which can help you lose your excess weight and rejuvenate your life.
Let us assure you that this is no magic. In fact it is the law of life. You create what you think. Now let’s ask you a question: what do you think about your obesity, the foods you consume? If you have negative thoughts that can prevent your burning fat, banish them immediately. Don’t ever think that you can’t lose weight. Don’t feel that your metabolic activity is slow and you may not lose weight even if you try.
Banish these thoughts, and change your mindset. Start thinking that losing weight is easy, or that you are happy now. When you adopt this positive attitude, you will notice that you are losing weight and your metabolic activity has increased, merely due to the power of thinking.
Remember that stress affects metabolic activity. If you’re over-stressed, you put on weight in the middle, stomach, and thighs because of the hormone cortisol, which is a by-product of stress. Apart from cortisol, stress also causes hormone imbalance resulting in weight gain, because of lopsided metabolism. Therefore reduce stress.
How do you bring down your stress levels? Begin to tell yourself that you should avoid stressful situations. Maybe many things are out of your control. Since you can’t control them, what you should do is control your attitude towards them. You should learn to relax, which de-stresses you, in turn increasing metabolic activity. To minimize stress and consequently lose weight, relax, meditate, take deep breaths, and eat natural herbal food.
Even if you are eating vegetables, remember that when they were mass-produced, they had been treated with chemicals, which will damage metabolism. Opt for quality natural food, which can be bought from your grocery or health-food outlets. Quality natural food tastes much better than processed and packaged food.
Detoxify your body. Eliminate toxins so that metabolism can be normalized.
