Boost Your Metabolism Quickly For Weight Loss

Jun 11, 2008
By now you probably know that having a fast metabolism can help you to lose weight because it burns fat quickly. Many people try to boost their metabolism through many methods and often, these methods can be unsafe. A lot of diet pills will make claims that they can boost your metabolism but these are often false or they have no proof to go along with the claims. Boosting your metabolism is a good idea but you can do it by adopting methods that are safe for your health and diet.

Eat Small Meals - Eating can help you to lose weight because it keeps your metabolism moving. Instead of eating just three meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner, you can help your metabolism by eating smaller meals and more of them. Have a small breakfast and then another small healthy meal two to three hours later. Your metabolism will keep burning the extra fat and because you are eating continuously throughout the day, you won't have to wait for it to startup again. Eating more meals in smaller portions does not have to be junk food and unhealthy fast food. You can have salads, whole grains, fruit and other foods that are healthy and filling.

Weight Lifting - You don't have to lift weights just to gain a lot of muscle. Weight lifting is actually a good source of exercise that can help you in your bid to burn fat while it builds muscle. Although you may be concerned that you will have huge muscles like a body builder, you can actually lift weights and achieve lean muscle instead of large ones. This can help you to boost your metabolism and in many cases you will burn fat even when you are not active.

Get Plenty of Sleep - From the moment we are teenagers, we begin to lose hours worth of sleep. From that young age our body stops receiving the amount of sleep that it will need to help us get through our day. To compensate with a lack of sleep, we begin to drink coffee and energy drinks. These will not help us with our health or weight problems. Getting a lot of sleep every night is a good and safe way to boost your metabolism. A lack of sleep can cause you to overeat unhealthy foods, while getting enough sleep can help to regulate your metabolism and appetite.

Cold Water - In the summer drinking ice cold water is a great way to cool down but did you know that cold water is another way to boost your metabolism? We should drink water regularly instead of consuming beverages like soda and coffee that are high in caffeine and sugars. Cold water is refreshing, burns fat and boosts your metabolism.

We all want to boost our metabolism but there is no reason why it needs to be done using unsafe methods. If you have an especially stubborn metabolism, consider talking to your doctor as it could hint at a health issue such as diabetes.
