How can I speed up my metabolism ?

Your metabolism burns calories and turns them into energy. A person with a high metabolism will burn more calories than a person with a slower metabolism — even if they eat the exact same things and do the exact same activities.

A person’s metabolic rate is not permanent. As a matter of fact, nearly every person will experience a metabolic rate change in their life. There are several factors that can change your metabolic rate, one of the biggest factors being age. As you get older, your metabolism will likely slow down. The good news is that there are several natural ways (sans harmful diet pills) that you can speed up your metabolism.

– Eat several small meals 2-3 hours apart during the day, instead of 3 larger meals. This is because your metabolism gets revved up for a few hours after you eat, while your body digests the food. It then slows back down until you eat again. If you eat every 2-3 hours, your next meal will come just about the same time as your body is done digesting your previous meal. This keeps your metabolism running strong all day long. It is important to eat smaller portions, so that you don’t cancel out the benefits by eating extra calories.

– Exercise – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism in two ways: it gives your metabolism a boost for a few hours, plus it helps you build muscle. People with more muscle mass have a higher metabolic rate because muscle burns more calories than fat. If you lose 10 lbs of fat and replace it with 10 lbs of muscle, you will still weigh the same, but your will look better, your clothes will fit better, and your will use more calories throughout the day.

It is important to remember that these are only short term remedies, so you have to keep doing them to keep your metabolic rate up. Even though your metabolic rate may not be as high as it used to be, these tips will still help you shed more calories than you would without them.
