High Metabolism Diet  -  Lose Post Pregnancy Weight With These 5 Tips To Rev It Up!

Are you finding it difficult, not to mention incredibly frustrating, to lose post pregnancy weight? The fact is, many new moms go through the exact same thing...struggling to lose their baby weight. The solution? Put your metabolism in overdrive, that is, speed it up. In this article, we will talk about high metabolism diet tips to increase your metabolism so you can shed those post pregnancy pounds!

High Metabolism Diet Tip #1

Start your morning off right. Eat breakfast. Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast every morning lose more weight than those who do not. To wake you and your body up, and keep you feeling full longer, make sure you include protein and/or fiber into your breakfast. Some ideas are: nonfat yogurt with berries and a bit of whole-grain cereal on top (watch the sugar content in the yogurt you choose though, many contain high amounts; shoot for one that has 5 grams or less), whole-grain cereal or oatmeal with fruit and/or nuts on top, or a veggie omelette. If you are in a hurry, blend up a whey protein and fruit shake/smoothie!

High Metabolism Diet Tip #2

Drink green tea. Green tea contains antioxidants known as catechins. Catechins may raise your metabolism, according to recent studies. The caffeine in the green tea will also help to increase metabolism. Even more health benefits? Studies have shown that people who drink green tea tend to be at a lower risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease and strokes, to name a few. Aim for 3-5 cups of green tea per day for maximum benefits. A bonus is that it's calorie-free!

High Metabolism Diet Tip #3

Are you getting enough? It is very important to get enough to eat. Yes, believe it or not, eating on a very regular basis (approximately every 3 hours) will actually speed up your metabolism. If you do not eat enough, your body can go into starvation mode and actually store fat, which will slow down your metabolism and cause you to gain weight rather than losing it. It is best to eat 3 balanced meals a day with 2 healthy snacks (no more than 200 calories in each snack) in between.

High Metabolism Diet Tip #4

Stay strong! Including strength training in your regular exercise routine will send your metabolism soaring! Researchers at Penn State found that women who followed a strength training program for eight weeks burned an average of 130 calories per workout, and 240 more on top of that, just from having a faster metabolism. Strength training will burn calories and keep your metabolism revved up even after your workout is done.

High Metabolism Diet Tip #5

Eat your protein. Did you know that by including protein in your daily diet, that your body can burn twice as many calories digesting the protein than it will digesting carbohydrates? Also, to maintain the muscle, your body needs that protein. Protein is great for weight loss, but you want to make sure you are opting for lean proteins in particular. Some examples are fish, chicken, legumes and eggs. It is best to always include a lean protein in every meal and snack. This will help to keep your metabolism high as well as keeping you feeling full longer and keeping your energy levels up.

Basically, if you want to lose post pregnancy weight, yes, it can be challenging but keeping your metabolism up will help those pregnancy pounds to fly right off. As mentioned in this article, following these high metabolism diet tips will help to keep you feeling full longer by eating foods high in protein, keep you strong and energized and make sure you are eating the amount of food you should be, while, of course, keeping your metabolism revved.
