3 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

by | Aug 9, 2017 | Nutrition

Remember those carefree days when you could slam four beers, a plate of dry ribs, and a bunch of fries in one go and not feel like Homer Simpson?

A lot of us guys experience waist inflation in our 30s and beyond, but even past 30 your body is still on your side; you just have to know how to shake it from hibernation.

Here are 3 ways to boost your metabolism and burn fat without even trying:

  1. Start your day with water – Metabolism is what happens when your body breaks down food into energy to strengthen and repair itself. Like a screaming steam engine, sometimes all it needs is some H20 to get rolling. Grab for a large glass of water when you first wake up – even before coffee – and aim to drink four glasses daily.
  2. Change your breakfast – Nix the sugary cereals and opt for protein-rich foods for men  like eggs at breakfast. A good breakfast gives your body the kick in the pants it needs to burn fat all day, and stops you from wolfing down a mid-morning doughnut.
  3. Eat more like Popeye – Eat more vegetables like spinach, broccoli, and red cabbage (all rich with minerals and vitamins) will help nourish your muscles like none other. Your body  burns energy to feed your muscles, so the more muscle you have the faster your metabolism  will run. If you really want to go for it, check out some guy-friendly kale recipes here.
