Q. People who sweat a lot have good metabolism. Is this correct?
People with good metabolism sweat only when they move their body. If you don’t move your body very much but sweat a lot, you must be careful. For example, people with obesity have thick subcutaneous fat and visceral fat, so heat tends to build up inside the body and a little bid of walk causes sweat.
Q. Which is better to drink first in the morning to increase your metabolism and lose weight, hot water, or room temperature’s water?
A. Room temperature’s water.
Drinking water colder than your body temperature increases the metabolism and helps lose weight. Our body has the function to keep our temperature, so when we drink cold water, our body activates the metabolism to keep our temperature. It is more effective to drink room temperature’s water not only in the morning but also during the daytime often.
Q. Which is more effective to increase metabolism and lose weight, meat dishes or fish dishes?
A. Fish dishes.
Taking EPA and DHA contained in fish dishes in the body increases beige fat cells, which burn fat cells and increase energy consumption, that means increase metabolism.
Eating fish in the morning is more effective to absorb EPA and DHA.
Q. Which is more effective to lose weight, grilled fish or raw fish?
A. Raw fish.
When fish is grilled, EPA and DHA fall off with oils. Glutamic acid that is the protein of fish is broken down when it is grilled. Eating raw fish is more effective to lose weight. You can use the supplement of EPA and DHA as well.
It is good to drink green tea or mint tea after eating. Catechin contained in green tea and menthol contained in mint tea increase beige fat cells.
Q. How can we increase beige fat cells easily at home?
A. Cooling around the neck.
Beige fat cells increase by cold stimulation to the body. Cooling around the neck with ice belt or cold towel for 1 hour a day is effective. However, cold stimulation sometimes increases blood pressure, so it is important to be careful if you have high blood pressure or heart diseases.
Aerobic exercise increases beige fat cells. Light exercise like fast walking is more effective than hard exercises.
(1) Walk with a little wider step (2 to 4 inches wider than usual)
(2) When you need to climb up stairs, climb up one by one to increase energy consumption.
(3) While you are sitting, pull your stomach in without using the backrest of the chair.
(4) Zombie exercise
Pull your stomach in, straighten your back, stick your chest out, relax your shoulders, arms and hands completely, and swing your arms moving your shoulders back and forth one by one. Walk in a small step standing on your tiptoes. This exercise consumes more than double the energy because of wiggling the body.
It is not true that you have to move more than 20 minutes to burn your fat. You can burn your fat by exercising for short periods frequently.
