Three Simple Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

Before we discuss speeding up your metabolism, we have to understand what metabolism is. Simply speaking, the rate at which you burn calories is your metabolism. The trick is in knowing how to influence your body to speed up that rate. There are three easy ways to do this and help you lose weight.

The first and quickest way to speed up your metabolism is to start an exercise program. Fat cells are lazy. Muscle cells are active; in fact muscle cells burn over 70 calories/kg/day than fat cells do. Every muscle cell works at burning calories, even at rest. In fact 60 -70% of the calories you burn are while your body is at rest. The only way to develop muscle cells is to start and maintain an exercise program. Resistance training builds muscle cells faster than aerobic training. You don’t have to be a body builder to start and maintain a resistance training program. Ask a trainer what the best program is for you.

Eat small, frequent meals. Eat healthy snacks. Make sure that you eat breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, just like your mother told you. Your body has been without energy building material since the evening before. You have to get the whole process started again with breakfast. Eat five or six small meals each day instead of three large ones. During the time taken between meals or skipped meals, the body slows down the metabolism as a means to conserve energy. If you eat small frequent meals, you will probably eat less than if you have three large ones. Keeping something in your stomach will keep your metabolism up.

Drink six to eight glasses of water each day. The chemical reactions in your body, in fact over 90% of the, require water. If you don’t drink enough water, you body will store water rather than use it.

There you have three simple easy ways to boost your metabolism. Boosting your metabolism will, in itself, cause your body to lose weight. An exercise program will build muscle cells, which burn calories faster than fat cells. Eating smaller more frequent meals will keep your metabolism up and functioning. Drinking enough water will allow your body to use the water you give it rather than storing it; stored water is weight. It’s not hard to boost your metabolism; you can do it! All it takes is a little work and anyone can do that.
