10 Ways to Speed Up Your Metabolism

A high metabolic rate means you burn calories faster and can loose weight easily. But most of us are not so blessed with a high metabolism but fortunately, that can be taken care of. Here are 10 ways to speed up your metabolism so that next time you will not blame your slow metabolism for that weight gain!

#1. Don’t hit that snooze

Wake up and get some sunshine! Resist the temptation to hit that snooze. When you wake up early in the morning and get some bright light (basically the sun), your body clock adjusts naturally which further regulates every system in your body including your metabolism.

#2. Exercise

This is no brainer. If you are up, you better get going. Go for a morning run or hit the gym. Whatever you do, get your body into running a gear to keep burning calories throughout the day.

#3. Change the intensity


You might have heard about High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), this is a great technique to loose weight and kick up your metabolism. Whatever kind of exercise you do whether it’s swimming, walking or running, increase the intensity for 30 seconds and then come back to your normal pace. This forces your body to burn more energy.
