How to increase your resting metabolic rate and burn fat while you sleep!

How to increase your resting metabolic rate and burn fat while you sleep!

Resting metabolic rate (RMR) is the number of calories your body burns at rest. It is influenced by several factors, including genetics, muscle mass, and age. However, there are several things you can do to increase your RMR and boost your metabolism.

  1. Build muscle mass - muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue, so the more muscle you have, the higher your RMR will be. Try incorporating weightlifting and resistance training into your exercise routine to build muscle.

  2. Eat protein - protein has a higher thermic effect than carbohydrates and fats, meaning it takes more energy to digest and process. Incorporating more protein into your diet can help increase your RMR.

  3. Drink green tea - green tea contains a compound called catechins, which have been shown to boost metabolism and increase RMR. Try drinking a cup of green tea in the morning and throughout the day to take advantage of its metabolism-boosting effects. We recommend trying our Matcha powder.

  4. Get enough sleep - lack of sleep can disrupt hormones that regulate metabolism and appetite, leading to weight gain. Aim for at least 7-9 hours of sleep per night to ensure your hormones are functioning properly. For help with sleep, check out our sleep drops.

  5. Stay hydrated - drinking enough water is important for overall health, but it can also boost your metabolism. Dehydration can slow down your metabolism, so make sure you're drinking enough water each day.

  6. Intermittent fasting - Intermittent fasting can help increase RMR by stimulating the production of growth hormone, which helps to build muscle mass.

By incorporating these strategies into your daily routine, you can increase your RMR and boost your metabolism. Remember, it is important to consult with a doctor or a qualified healthcare professional before making any significant changes to your diet or exercise routine.

In addition to the above tips, it's also important to note that a balanced diet, regular physical activity and a healthy lifestyle are also important to maintain a healthy metabolism and overall health.
