Reset Your Metabolism with These Easy Tips

Reset Your Metabolism with These Easy Tips
If you're feeling sluggish, it can be tempting to blame your metabolism. But a slow metabolism isn't just a symptom of aging or a side effect of medication, it also happens when you're not eating right and exercising regularly. The good news is that there are easy ways to kick-start your metabolism and get back into the swing of things, no matter how old or young you are!

1. Stay hydrated

The human body is made up of at least 60% water, so it's important to stay hydrated if you want to keep your metabolism high and your energy levels up. The easiest way to do this is by keeping water with you at all times, and drinking it throughout the day! If you're exercising or doing something that makes you sweat heavily, make sure to drink even more water than usual.

The recommended amount of water to drink for adults is 8 glasses of water. If you find it difficult to drink enough water, try adding our marine collagen for flavour (and it will help you get your daily dose of collagen).

2. Eat a balanced and nutritious diet

If you're not eating enough fruits and vegetables, your metabolism will slow down. Eating too much processed food can also slow down your metabolism since it contains lots of sugar, refined carbohydrates, and saturated fats that are difficult to digest. Try to avoid trans fats as well as hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. Instead of those foods try eating more fibre-rich whole grains such as brown rice or quinoa, these will help to keep you feeling full longer so that you're less likely to overeat later on. Protein is another important component of any balanced diet because it helps build muscle mass which increases resting metabolic rate (the number of calories burned when you're sitting still).

3. Take a supplement to support your metabolism

The best supplement to take is a multivitamin. There's no need to get fancy with it and buy some overpriced supplement that promises miraculous results, we like the Yalla Protein multivitamin which combines 13 essential vitamins in 1 capsule, and it won't break your wallet. The important thing is that you're getting all of the key vitamins and minerals your body needs, so don't worry too much about finding an expensive brand, you won't see much, if any difference in how your metabolism functions from one kind of vitamin versus another.

The recommended dose for this type of supplements is one per day, but if you feel like two might be better for you then go ahead! It's not going to hurt anything as long as it doesn't cause adverse side effects like nausea or vomiting, which could lead to dehydration.

4. Get your body moving

You might have heard that exercise can help you lose weight, but did you know that it also increases your metabolism? To be more specific, the more active you are and the more muscle mass in your body, the higher your metabolic rate. That means that when you're moving around a lot, whether it's taking walks, working out at the gym or going for hikes with friends, your body will burn more calories even when resting than if it was inactive. And since our bodies prefer to use carbohydrates as fuel instead of fat stores, this means we'll burn off those carbs rather than storing them as fat. The more you move, the better!

5. Try fasting

For a metabolism reboot, it's worth considering scheduling in specific times to consume your calories. It has been shown that multiple forms of fasting can help promote metabolic health and overal longevity. If you have any health or hormone issues, we advice you consult with your health professional before starting any type of fast.

6. Get enough sleep

Sleep is one of the most important things you can do to reset your metabolism. It's common knowledge that sleep helps us feel better, but it's also essential for keeping our bodies healthy and functioning properly.

It is recommended to get seven to nine hours of sleep per night for adults, and if you're not getting enough, your body will let you know by slowing down all its processes, including digestion. Your metabolism will slow down as well because it needs energy from food in order to work properly, so if you're not giving it what it needs via sleep or eating enough calories throughout the day, this can lead to weight gain over time.


To sum up, we can say that resetting your metabolism is not that difficult. It doesn't require any special equipment or knowledge of nutrition. All you need to do is make small changes in your daily routine and stick with them, consistency is key!
