How To Boost Your Metabolism - 3 Tips For Losing Fat And Inches Faster

Updated on April 16, 2014

Are you searching for tips on how to boost your metabolism? This article has 3 top tips that you can start to apply today and they will not only help you reach your ideal weight faster, yet they will also prevent you from regaining your lost weight back.

Your metabolism or metabolic rate is what determines how fast or slow you burn calories in your body. It’s a simple equation, the faster we can get your metabolism going the easier it is for you to both lose and maintain lost body fat.

This is very important because research shows that within 5 years 95% of lost weight is regained again and in some cases more weight on top of that is gained too. Let’s take a look at 3 tips that can keep you on track. Another factor that is true is that your metabolism can be speeded up if it is quite slow at the moment, so please don’t be discouraged by your present results if they are not going well.

Tip #1) Make sure you eat or drink sufficient protein every single day. This is one of the biggest mistakes I see in people’s current programmes for burning fat. Protein holds onto your muscle mass and the more muscle you have the faster your metabolic rate. It’s a proven fact that muscle burns more calories than what fat does.

Tip #2) Eat 4 – 6 times every single day as part of this “how to boost your metabolism” program. By that I don’t mean eat 6 huge meals, but eat 3 regular meals and 2 – 3 snacks/protein shakes or bars depending on your lifestyle. It’s a fact that every time you eat your metabolism is boosted and your body burns calories to help digest your food.

Tip #3) Incorporate interval weight/strength training sessions 2 – 3 times per week into your exercise regime for 1 hour per session. Why is this important? Weight/strength training holds onto your muscle and if you wish can even build some more muscle too. Remember Tip #1? The more muscle you hold onto the faster your metabolism and more calories you burn (even while watching the TV or when you are sleeping!)

How To Boost Your Metabolism Conclusion

These 3 tips must be applied on a daily and consistent basis for them to work effectively. By doing so you will be able to permanently change your body composition and create a fat burning machine within yourself. Once your body fat levels are in the healthy zone and you have held onto or gained back sufficient muscle tissue then a fat free life will both be achieved and enjoyed.
