How do you increase your metabolism quickly?

I was anorexic for about a year but i’m better now. My metabolism got totally ruined though and i need to find an easy way to get it back in shape so that i can still loose weight by exercising instead of by not eating because lately i have gained a lot of weight back by eating normally again very quickly after recovering from my issues with eating dissorders. I hate being fat… HELP!

    sounds like you might still have some issues with your body- it’s weight and appearance. I wouldn’t rush to gain weight then lose it- even with exercise.

    Exercise is always a good thing, but give your body a chance to adjust to the trauma you’ve put it through. Gaining weight is accomplished by taking in more calories than your body burns making fuel. Stick to whole foods and vegetables, complex carbohydrates and avoid simple carbs like processed sugars, white breads, pastas, etc.

    take a look at the food pyramid for an idea of what you should be eating the most of and stay on track as best you can.

    Eat a good breakfast everyday!
    Like:
    Oatmeal with brown sugar and apples
    Eggs with toast
    Blueberry muffins with yogurt
    Cereal with low-fat milk and strawberries

    Also before you go to bed try to do at least 10 crunches OR have a 15 minute walk!Also, try to drink at least 7-10 glasses of water everyday!

    Eat 5 times a day – 3 small main meals (they should fit on a smaller plate like a bread & butter plate) and then 2 decent snacks in between (they should fit on a small saucer). Eat roughly 3 hours apart as this is how long it takes for your food to digest and if you eat more after it’s been digested your metabolism is constantly working hard and will ultimately get faster.

    Here’s an example of what to have in a day:

    Breakfast – 2 or 3 fruits chopped up and topped with a thin layer of plain low fat yoghurt and sprinkled with oats & raisins

    Snacks – 1 piece of wholemeal toast with banana

    Lunch – 5 pieces of veggie sushi

    Snack – a small handful of raw nuts, small handful assorted dried fruit

    Tea – steamed veggies, small piece of veggetarian quiche

    In between snacks and meals you should drink water, real fruit juice (it’s best if you can make it yourself) or green tea – if you want.

    Oh, and don’t forget exercise! Exercise 4-5 times a week for at least 1 hour.

    Metabolism is essentially the speed at which our body’s motor is running. The speed at which our body burns calories is called

    the metabolic rate. It’s how fast your “motor” is running when you’re still in a reclined position or sleeping. About 60-75% of

    energy is expended by the body at rest in such activities.

    The metabolism is based on the number of calories we burn throughout the day. Our body constantly burns calories to keep us

    going whether we are eating, sleeping, cleaning etc. People with a lower percentage of body fat (i.e. muscular) have a higher

    metabolism than others that are less muscular because muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than fat. Some people have a

    slower metabolic rate and have a harder time staying slim. Younger persons have higher (faster) metabolism because of the

    increased activity of cells. A slow metabolism actually causes to store fat. The slower the metabolic rate, the greater the weight

    gains. How to build muscles to improve metabolism? What type of exercise is ideal that speed up metabolism so that you burn

    calories even at rest or sleep? There are simple exercises that speed up the metabolism.

    Causes for Low Metabolism

    * Fasting
    * A low calorie diet
    * Snacking throughout the day on high sugared foods (candy, colas,
    cakes, gum).
    * Eating or drinking too much sugar containing foods.
    * Lack of physical activity.
    * Underactive thyroid.

    Metabolism Boosters

    There are some natural metabolism boosters (natural foods) that improves your metabolism. Do not take over the counter pills

    containing animal thyroid extract that claim to boost up metabolism. These products may have side effects as diarrhea, increased

    heart rate, excessive sweating, nervousness, tremors, bulging eyes, etc.

    How to Improve (Speed up) Metabolism

    * Do not skip any meals
    * Exercise daily
    * Build your muscles
    * Avoid alcohol, sugar, and fastings
    *Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.
    *Eat foods with high nutrition values
