Bulimia is a possibly critical eating disorder characterized by periods of uncontrolled food consumption. Binge eating is accompanied by an unhealthy cleaning of what is eaten. Purging techniques may include excessive activity, inappropriate use of diuretics or laxatives, rapid or self-induced regurgitation. One of the many negative effects of bulimia is a reduced resting metabolic rate. Therefore, you burn fewer calories when you are at rest. This works against weight reduction initiatives. A part of recovering from bulimia is dietary treatment, in which you speak with a dietitian to learn about the diet and start improving your metabolism to meet your fat burning goals in a healthy way.
• Eat smaller, regular servings throughout the day. Most people make the mistake of limiting calories and skipping daily meals, especially the morning meal. Skipping daily meals and limiting calories actually slows metabolism and stops weight loss. Start each day with a healthy breakfast that contains foods that provide energy and help you feel full longer. Some examples of healthy breakfast foods are wheat toast, low-fat yogurt, and egg whites. Always eat smaller portions that contain the right amount of calories for your preferred body weight, height, age group, activity level, and physique. Add healthy snacks like an apple, pear, or low-fat string cheese.
• Include high intensity aerobic exercise in your exercise routine. The highest level of vigorous activity frame increases your metabolism for many hours. When your system works to provide oxygen to your blood and lower its temperature, it uses up energy.
• Bodybuilding is another training option that can help increase metabolism. It even works when you sleep at night. Focus on bodybuilding workouts that affect your largest muscles. Improved muscle tissue also increases metabolism by increasing the amount of fat-busting enzymes.
• Drink ice-cold drinks, especially water. Along with lubrication and hydration, water facilitates the absorption of food. If you drink something ice cream, your system must also work harder to raise your body temperature.
• Do relaxation exercise routines to reduce the intensity of your anxiety. The feelings of anxiety and nervousness trigger an inflammatory reaction in your body. An inflammatory reaction slows food digestion and metabolism. Try deep breathing exercise routines, write in a journal, or do activities to reduce anxiety and stress to increase your metabolism.
