It is no secret that exercise will increase your metabolic rate temporarily, but increasing metabolic rate for the long term is a step-by-step process which includes raising your basal metabolic rate as well as your body’s resting metabolic rate. There is no need to worry as this step-by-step process is not as confusing as it seems, however, it does take an overall commitment to exercise and a desire to lead a healthier life.
What exactly is Resting Metabolic Rate? Often referred to as RMR, Resting Metabolic Rate is the energy that the body needs to perform the most basic functions when your body is at rest. These essential basic functions include breathing, circulating blood and basic brain functions. Basal Metabolic Rate is the total number of calories the body burns while at rest.
If you are hoping to increase your Resting Metabolic Rate in order to lose weight, it is important to evaluate your diet. If you are not doing so already, it is important to eat healthy. Ensure that you eat a healthy breakfast and snack on good for your body options such as fruits, raw vegetables and nuts during the day. Also important is eating more protein foods, and plant-based foods are a good option as they are low in calories and fat. It is also necessary to monitor and control your calorie intake.
Make sure to drink plenty of water on a daily basis. If you are a fan of coffee, try to drink it black instead of adding sugar and milk. If you are a person that drinks a lot of tea, switch to green tea as studies have shown that green tea can increase the metabolism by 4% over a twenty-four hour period. Cut out sugary drinks as much as you can, until you can completely eliminate them from your diet.
Exercise also plays a huge factor in increasing the body’s Resting Metabolic Rate. When developing or revamping an exercise regime, it is important to increase your daily activity. Remember that every little bit helps, so find ways to exercise for at least 30 minutes each day. Incorporate some type of aerobic activity into the routine and also give weights and weightlifting a try to increase your muscle mass. By pushing your metabolism to a higher level, the body can burn fat and fitness goals can be pushed to a higher level.
