Weight watchers should know that high metabolic rate will help to lose extra pounds as you will burn more calories. Unfortunately, some people do not have great metabolisms like others and reasons could be many. Also, metabolism ages faster than we do which means the tendency to gain more weight will keep increasing as we age.

Apart from ageing, genes, hormone fluctuations, muscle loss are few more reasons why we have poor metabolism which makes it difficult to lose weight. But you don't have to worry as you can always rev up your metabolism naturally by following below-mentioned tips an tricks.

1. Eat more protein

Protein is very vital macronutrient we know that by now for weight loss. But many do not know the reason behind the same. Food's intake spikes metabolism for a few hours and the same is known as thermic effect of food (TEF) and during the same more calories are burned and protein's intake boosts your metabolic rate by 15–30%, compared to 5–10% for carbs and 0–3% for fats as it takes a long time to digest the same. 

Also, proteins keep your fuller for a longer period of time and also it promotes the growth of muscles which will, in turn, help you burn more calories. Some of the best sources of protein are fish, lean meat, paneer, legumes, tofu, nuts, beans, eggs, and low-fat dairy products.

2. Do more resistance training

Muscles are more metabolically active than fat which means you will burn more calories even when you are resting. So, in the gym try and increase more weights and do resistance training often. If you are not a fan of strength training, then you can go for High-intensity interval training (HIIT) as the same also boosts metabolism for some hours.

3. Get quality sleep

Lack of sleep is directly linked to many health issues and one of them is obesity. Also, lack of sleep will increase hunger hormone ghrelin and decrease the fullness hormone leptin. So, that's why sleep-deprived are always hungry and struggle to lose weight.

4. Drink more water

Dehydration is equaled to poor metabolic rate as our body needs water to process calories. So do not forget to have 8 glasses of water every day. Also, go for fresh fruits and vegetables, which contain water naturally over junk food.

5. Eat spicy food and drink green tea

Spicy foods can kick your metabolism too. The effect is mostly temporary but in longer run it will help. Apart from this trick, one can also go for oolong tea or green tea as drinking them also help in the same.
