10 Ways to Speed Up Your Metabolism

#7. Strength Training

Strength Training

Strength training is not just for men, women often shy away from lifting weights thinking it will lead to muscle mass. But it doesn’t quite work that way, strength training causes microscopic tears in your muscles which your body then repairs using calories. It is a good way to stimulate recovery and burn some fat while at it.

#8. Drink coffee or tea

You don’t need a reason to drink coffee or tea but the good thing is these drinks rev up your metabolism. So go ahead, have that cup of coffee or tea and get your daily dose of antioxidants.

#9. Don’t refrain from carbs

In the short run, avoiding carbohydrates may seem like a good idea for a quick weight loss. But over time, your body gets used to it and reduces the production of certain hormones which result in burning of fewer calories. You can still eat good quality carbs and reduce them eventually to avoid a rebound weight gain.

#10. Eat Protein

Your body needs protein to maintain lean muscle. You can add a small serving of lean meat, nuts or yogurt to your meal to make it more protein rich. Eating protein can increase your post-meal calorie burnout by up to 35%.
