As we age, our metabolic rate slows down. This is usually due to a loss of muscle from a more sedentary lifestyle. I will tell you how to raise your metabolism and keep it raised, no matter your age!
First, let’s talk about some reasons you may have a metabolic rate that is “on hold.”
It could be from cutting too many calories, and your body is storing fat for survival.
Maybe you spend most of your time sitting, and you need to engage in activity.
Possibly you have done so much cardio, that your body is also storing fat…yes, this is a thing, ladies!
Even if you think your metabolic rate is completely shut off, you can turn it back on with a few simple tools.
- Eat enough protein to support muscles and prevent them from depleting.
- Exercise to build new, lean muscle tissue. Click here for a follow-along workout program that will take years off, and boost your metabolic rate.
- Get your thyroid checked if you are over 40 and female. Many of us (myself included) are not diagnosed until we have a lot of weight to lose and have other symptoms.
- Stop following trendy diets that cut out too many calories. This will stall everything.
Know that it is possible to get leaner while looking and feeling youthful and vital.
