Education is power and understanding metabolism can be a game changer. Knowing that you have some control over your metabolism can be VERY motivational.
This is how you can take control of your metabolism and long-term health.
Do more NEAT activity
NEAT (Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis) accounts for 15-20% of the calories you burn each day. That is significant. Staying busy through non-exercise activities like gardening, cleaning, shopping, playing, fidgeting, etc. can have a big impact on your overall calorie burn each day.
Add lean muscle
How? Try strength exercises plus protein. You can add lean muscle at any age by doing exercises that challenge your muscles plus get 20-30 grams of high-quality protein. Muscle is responsible for most of the calories you burn. Body fat burns very little. More muscle = more calories burned, every day.
Eat Protein First
Protein has the highest thermic effect compared to fat or carbohydrates. That means, it takes more energy for the body to breakdown and process protein, compared to fats or carbs. You’ll burn more calories eating protein than other foods.
