Revving Up Your Fat Burning - How To Increase Metabolism?

 


Visitors: 160

You always hear that the main way to lose weight is to increase metabolism, but are wondering how this can be done. To increase metabolism you have to speed up the process your body uses to convert the food you eat into energy rather than fat. When you metabolism is slow you find it hard to lose weight because your body is not burning calories at a fast enough rate. There are several methods you can use to increase the metabolic rate at which your body works.

  1. Always eat breakfast. Skipping meals actually slows down the metabolic rate of the body, so even if you are not hungry you should eat something in the morning. It also helps you from becoming hungry later in the morning and grabbing high calorie snacks to relieve the hunger pangs.
  2. Eat small frequent meals. Many diets refer to this as SFM and it does help the body to burn calories faster. Eating fruits, vegetables and grain in small portions at various points during the day speed up your metabolism and keep you from being hungry.
  3. Exercise. Doing aerobic exercises every day or alternating them with walking or jogging also helps the bodys metabolic rate to speed up.
  4. Tone up your muscles with weight training. This helps to release the built up energy from the muscles so that the body can convert more food. Exercising actually provides the fuel the body needs for the metabolism.

Drink lots of water every day. Everyone needs at least 8 glasses of water a day to flush out the burned calories from the body. This leaves room for the body to start burning more calories.
