Do you workout hard and fail to see significant fat loss results? Are you eating clean but still can't seem to lose the gut? If this is the case, you are probably having an issue with your metabolism. Eating is one way to fix your metabolism.
Determine if You Have a Metabolism Issue
It is really quite simple to get an idea of how well your metabolism is working. Each night for 4 nights take your temperature right before going to bed. Write down what number you get. When you've completed 4 straight nights, average the numbers to determine your average body temperature. It should be very close to 98.6. If it is lower than that, you have an issue with your metabolism that needs to be fixed.
You've Got to Eat to Rev Up the Metabolism
The first thing you need to do in order to increase your metabolism is start eating. Most likely you've damaged your metabolism by restricting carbs for too long or by cutting your calories for too long. The body is amazing because it adapts quickly to these situations. If you do anything for too long it will get used to it and adjust accordingly. If you push up your cardio to an hour per session it won't be long before your body adapts and stops letting go of fat. The same is true of how you eat. If you have honestly been eating clean and you show a metabolic issue, you will need to eat more in order to stoke the metabolic furnace.
Eating to Fix Your Metabolism
Metabolic repair is definitely feasible. By eating more clean foods for a period of time (usually 2 to 4 weeks) and doing short, intense cardio sessions along with intense weight training sessions, your metabolism will kick in gear again. It is important during your training to keep the rest periods short. These things will assist in boosting your metabolism. Avoid long periods of cardio. In fact, keep your cardio sessions around 20 to 25 minutes.
Eat clean foods and lots of them. Include fruit because the insulin spikes it will cause will make you want to eat more. This is a good thing when you are trying to spike your metabolism.
