Boost Your Metabolism!

Metabolism is defined as the rate at which your body burns ingested calories. By speeding up your metabolism, you will lose weight and look great in that new swimsuit!

Eat Breakfast

Many people believe that if they skip meals, they will lose weight. Actually, skipping meals slows down the metabolism. To jump start your day, eat a protein rich Greek yogurt with a piece of fresh fruit. Strawberries are always a good choice, as they slow the breakdown of carbohydrates into sugar.

Drink Water

Everyone should drink plenty of water, but we all have different needs. To figure out how much water you should be drinking on a daily basis, multiply your weight by 67%, and that will give you the number of ounces of water you should be consuming. If you are exercising, you will be perspiring and losing water. You will need to add twelve ounces of water to your regimen for every thirty minutes of vigorous exercise.

Cardio

To get your heart pumping and those calories burning, you need to amp up your metabolic rate with some cardio exercise. Doing aerobics, the treadmill, or going for a brisk walk for 40-60 minutes a day for four to five days a week will rev up your system. Be sure not to overeat after you are finished with your workout, and stay hydrated.

Green Tea

Green tea contains an antioxidant called epigallocatechin gallate, which stimulates the metabolism, therefore promoting weight loss if consumed on a daily basis.

Foods that Boost Metabolism:

  • cinnamon
  • avacados
  • strawberries
  • spinach
  • garlic

  • salmon
  • blueberries
