Speeding up your metabolism brings many benefits to our body: it helps you lose weight, tone your muscles and even eliminate fat. But the big question is: how can we speed up our metabolism in a healthy way without starvation? One of the secrets is undoubtedly the consumption of proteins.
A fast metabolism helps us burn calories and lose weight, as well as eliminate unwanted toxins and build strong muscles. Protein intake increases the so-called thermal effect of food (TEF) and manages to speed up the metabolism for several hours.
Eating protein all day is very important. Proteins provide energy and prevent the body from consuming muscle fibres, and therefore destroying muscles. That's why it's important not to skip any of the 5 meals every day. If you eat meat or fish, you should include them in your main meals to get the necessary proteins. However, this does not mean that vegetarians and vegans do not have many (and good) alternatives.
Plant based proteins are increasingly chosen by those who want to keep fit and healthy. Here are some of the advantages of vegan proteins:
They are less acidic for the blood, since they contain more minerals.
They contain less fat
They do not contain cholesterol.
They have a high fibre content.
Do not overload the liver and kidneys.
They are easy to digest.
They have less calories and therefore are perfect for slimming diets
They are ecological and supportive for the planet. Do not forget that we need 9 kilos of cereals to produce one kilogram of meat, and those cereals could be used directly as food.
To obtain all the vegetable proteins we need, we must prioritize the consumption of certain foods:
Legumes, like chickpeas and beans. They are also rich in complex carbohydrates
Watercress, which also contains folic acid and calcium.
Artichokes, a diuretic and detoxifying food.
Asparagus, rich in flavonoids, folic acid and zinc.
Broccoli, rich in vitamin A, C, potassium and iron.
Nuts, which also contain omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, lower cholesterol and protect the heart.
Whole grains, such as rice or wheat, a source of slow assimilation fibres and carbohydrates.
Vegetables such as peas or spinach, which are also rich in vitamins A, B, C and E, calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium.
