You do not eat more than your friends and even more you diet when they don’t. Still there is a huge difference between your weight and theirs which you cannot explain. The one to blame for it is your metabolism.
Since the metabolism is responsible for the way your body burns energy the target of any program meant to get you into shape is to speed it up. It is common knowledge that a fast metabolism burns the extra calories while a slow one makes them become the fat we hate.
There are certain steps you can follow to increase the rate of your metabolism. They must be followed thoroughly and the results will not be late to appear.
Exercise regularly and change the routine at least once a month. Your body will appreciate the activity but if you do the same thing over and over again no spectacular change will happen.
Eat often but eat small quantities. Instead of devouring a whole bucket of food, ingest small quantities so the hunger will never be around the corner to make you eat without control.
Most of all do not skip over breakfast. Your lifestyle must be in concordance with your need to be fit so listen to your body about the matter. When you wake up the metabolism is set up to look for food.
Do not ignore this calling for it will be responsible for how much food you ingest the entire day.
Make sure you rest enough. Getting enough sleep is a precious weapon against gaining weight. The lack of sleep forces the body to preserve resources and unbalances the metabolism.
This is why no matter how much you work out or how strict is the diet you are following the weight stays put if you do not sleep enough.
