Take Control of Your Metabolism
Your metabolism is always running, even while you’re asleep. Its rate is determined largely by your genetics. A thermogenic like caffeine or chili extract may temporarily increase the rate, but long-term alterations require lifestyle changes. That’s what a news release from the Texas A&M School of Public Health suggests.
Because muscle burns more calories than body fat, weight training over time can help increase muscle mass and metabolism. Hydration and eating right are also important to your performance. Getting more leafy vegetables into your diet and not skipping breakfast are simple ways to improve your nutrition. It’s also important to make sure you get enough sleep each night, usually 7-8 hours, to help your body run efficiently the next day.
