Slow metabolism is a major obstacle in your way to be fit and healthy. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t things we can do to give it a boost. The most important thing that one has to do apart from exercises and all is to space out the meals. Eating at regular intervals stimulates our body to work basically, boosting the process of digestion and absorption which requires a good amount of energy. Skipping meals, irregular meals timings, heavy eating at one time slows down the process of digestion and so also BMR. Practice eating slowly by proper chewing of the food. Avoid sitting or lying just after taking meals. Stroll for about 20 minutes.
Drinking of green tea, herbal tea or green coffee after meals may help boost the metabolism but the basics has to be followed.
