10. Eat consistently throughout the day
The most effective way to stoke your metabolism, stay energized, and fuel your muscular growth is to provide your body with a steady stream of protein, fat, and carbohydrates (in their proper proportions).
“I like to compare my metabolism to that of a wood-burning campfire,” Guy says. “As you place fuel on the fire, the fire burns strong and continuously.”
Here’s why: When your body senses a lack of fuel, it responds by slowing down your metabolism and holds on to body fat for later storage, Guy says. Furthermore, getting too much fuel at one time can trigger an insulin spike, which encourages your body to store excess blood sugar as fat. Stay steady and consistent, and you’ll avoid both those pitfalls.
