speed up metabolism

Do you want to speed up your metabolism?

We could all use a faster metabolism when it comes to weight loss.

Follow these simple steps to speed up metabolism.


1. Don't skip breakfast. While you sleep your body goes into energy conservation mode by slowing your metabolism. Eating first thing will help speed up metabolism by giving it a good kick start. A good breakfast consists of complex carbohydrates like oatmeal or whole grain bread, egg whites, and fruit like bananas.

2. Eat 5-6 meals a day. You don't need to eat more food just more frequently. By doing this your body knows that its energy source is steady and will burn more calories instead of storing it as fat for later use. This is a key factor in speeding up your metabolism.

3. Change what you eat. Just as eating more frequently will speed up your metabolism so will what you eat. Eating foods high in sugar content will cause your blood sugar to spike forcing your body to store it as fat. Try to eat more whole grain foods, fruits, and vegetables. Make sure to also balance your meals with protein (like egg whites and lean meats) and healthy fat (essential fatty acids found in nuts and fish).

4. Drink Green Tea. Green tea has amazing fat burning properties. Numerous studies have shown the positive effects it has on increasing metabolism. You will find green tea in many diet pills because of this.

5. Exercise. Ok, that's obvious but most people don't do it. If you aren't exercising start by doing something whether it's walking the dog or playing with the kids. You need to move your body to speed up your metabolism and burn calories.

6. Interval Training. Have you ever noticed that some people do a ton of cardio but stop losing weight after awhile? That's because their metabolism has stabilized. Your body's metabolism will quickly adapt to it's environment. To fix this use interval training by starting off at a slower speed and kicking it up to high levels then back down. There are many ways to do this. The key is to push your body to different levels. If you do it right you can really speed up your metabolism and burn a ton of calories.

7. Weight Training. By building more muscle your body's metabolism will speed up to support that new muscle, causing you to burn more calories. Women shouldn't fear weight training you don't have enough testosterone to bulk you up. If you really want a faster metabolism weight training is a must.
