Increase Your Metabolism

If you want to lose weight or just have more energy here are some helpful tips. Don't skip breakfast. Also have several small meals 3-4 hours apart. Have high protein foods like turkey, chicken and fish. Always have high energy foods like fruits and veggies. Avoid sugar and refined carbs. They slow down your system and promote fat storage. Drink more water. This helps flush out toxins and waste products and if you drink enough it will beat even coffee or tea. Do strength training at least 2 times a week. Muscle burns more calories than fat and raises you metabolism 30-50 calories per lb of muscle you add. Cardiovascular exercise like walking can increase you metabolism for up to 3 hours even after your done. Try a walk after dinner and make it a habit, you'll be glad you did.
