If you are trying to lose weight and there are still no results, you probably make some mistakes and in the following, we will present you those mistakes and plus, how to boost the metabolism.
*Late night meals*
The body doesn’t store more fat at night, but it is the food you consume that makes you gain weight. It was found by some researches that eating late doesn’t lead to more weight. The study lasted six months and included people that were divided in 2 groups. One group had meal after 8pm and the other ate the largest meal for breakfast. The first group had lost 10% more body fat and 11% more weight that the other group. The only problem about late meals, is when the meals are very high in calories.
*Small meals during the days will boost the metabolism*
This is another myth. The speed of the metabolism doesn’t depend on the meal’s number throughout the day. Each person should discover their meal frequency regimen. Consuming food on few hours will prevent overeating but it won’t accelerate the metabolism or help you lose weight faster.
*The extreme diets (low-calorie) will help you lose weight faster*
If a person consumes fewer calories than the body needs for proper function, the metabolism will decrease and it will be hard to lose weight. It was found by the researchers that the diets lower than 1200cal lead to biggest decrease in the resting metabolic rate (RMR).
*All of the calories aren’t created equal*
The body processes different food types as we burn 3% of all fat calories, 6% of all carb calories and 20 to 30% of all protein calories. People should focus on the proteins as they are burned faster even with no exercises. This process is known as TEF (thermal effect of food). If you ate 1000cal of ice cream and 1000cal of chicken, you’d gain more weight with the ice cream.
