How to Speed up Your Metabolism

Updated on April 20, 2012

Natural Energy Supplements

A slow metabolism can be the culprit of many physical problems and difficulties. One of the most common is losing weight. There are those that have a high metabolism, and then there's everybody else. The biggest question is how to boost your metabolism to get it burning fat again. The other thing that comes with a higher metabolism is energy.

There are several ways to do this. One product that really helps boost your metabolism is B12. This is a natural product that does not give you a gittery feeling as some other products may. Another product that works really well is Ephedrine. Ephedrine has gotten a bad reputation, but if it is taken as directed it is perfectly safe. It is also really good for people with low blood pressure.

Diet Changes to Speed up Metabolism

Another thing that makes probably the biggest difference is your diet. You can actually reverse your metabolism by eating more protein and vegetables. The foods that slow your metabolism down are starches such as bread, pasta, and rice. These foods are automatically turned into sugar in your body.

Another thing to stay away from is coffee and tea. Both are good for your body if you don't put any sugar or creamer in it. Generally, most people do add these things though and any benefit is lost.

      Thank you for a very useful Hub. I love black coffee although it gives me the gittery feeling you mentioned, so I add a bit of creamer and it works as long as I am on the move. I am always looking for something natural and perfectly safe to give me a boost of energy in order to keep up with my grandchildren. Have a wonderful day!
