For those of you who have a sluggish metabolic rate, a slight change in your lifestyle can do wonders. It is seen that regular exercise builds up the basal metabolic rate. Walking and running can prove to be beneficial but there is nothing like strength training. As one loses fat and builds up lean muscles, metabolism gets a significant boost.
Here are some tips that you should keep in mind while working out else it may lead to lethargy and exhaustion -
• Ensure that your water intake is sufficient, our body runs primarily on the essential fluids and lack of it can cause grave repercussions.
• Keep a check on your Vitamin D levels. Lower levels of Vitamin D can make you lose weight at a slower rate and can trigger increased production of hormone ghrelin which usually propels frequent hunger pangs.
• Do not cut down on your caffeine intake completely. Coffee, tea or green tea can keep you attentive and alert through the day.
• Get enough sleep and try keeping stress at bay.
Watch out for your daily calorie intake, eat less but at regular intervals and include a lot of protein.
