Try a couple of these out. My favorite is the first one:
Spice Up Your Food
Spicy foods contain chemical compounds that speed up the way bodies burn calories.
Pile on the Protein
The body burns more calories digesting protein than fat (obviously) and carbs.
Work Out with Your Buddy Joe
Caffeine in your daily coffee (if used in moderation) can help give you the energy boost for your workout and give your metabolic rate acceleration too.
Diet with Your Hands at 10 and 2: Avoid Crash Diets (He he)
Crash diets do help you drop the lbs BUT it's the muscle loss that accounts for the lower weight. When the muscles deteriorate, so does the metabolic rate.
Build Up Some Muscle
As mentioned above, loss of muscle means loss of calorie burning. Logically, the opposite is true: building muscles helps in burning calories.
Aerobic exercise helps boost your heart health and metabolic rate. And crank up the intensity as it helps increase the resting metabolic rate as well.
Wet Your Whistle
Water is key to a good metabolism. Dehydration greatly slows your ability to burn calories. It is recommended to drink 8 glasses of water a day and a glass before and after eating a meal or snack. (This also helps you feel fuller and curbs overeating).
Use Energy Drinks, Like the Shredded People in Commercials
They work. They boost your energy with caffeine and often also contain taurine (an amino acid) that helps burn fat and increase metabolism.
Eat a Lot and All the Time
Don't chair up at a Dunkin'. Eat well and keep snacking healthily during the day and your metabolism will continue to course through your bod throughout the day.
Nothing Wrong with a Little Tea Bagging
Adding Green Tea to your diet works like drinking coffee and getting the benefits of caffeine to boost your energy for work outs and metabolism but also contains catechins (a substance that helps boost metabolism for hours).
Try these out the next time you feel the battle of the bulge has you on the losing side.
