Everyone wants to speed up their metabolism in some way, shape, or form. How does one achieve this seemingly far fetched goal, however? Well, there are steps people can take to accomplish this.
1.) Eat regularly! This does not mean large meals should be consumed all throughout the day. This means that one should have their three main meals, with two to three smaller meals (snacks) in between. This will keep the metabolism constantly going and not letting it venture into starvation mode.
2.) Drink more water. We have all heard this, however, it is true. Most individuals require a half gallon up to a gallon of water per day (depending on the size and health levels of people-it will vary) and this amount should be spread all throughout the day.
3.) Spicy foods help! If you can tolerate spices like curry, chili pepper, and other spicy ingredients, these aid in increasing one’s metabolic rate.
4.) COFFEE! For all of you coffee drinkers, coffee, in moderation, can help give your metabolism a quick boost. Just keep in mind that too much of anything can have negative side effects, so don’t overdo it.
5.) A morning workout. Some people love working out in the morning, and some despise it. Whichever type you are, it is beneficial to do at least a 10-15 minute exercise program to jump-start your brain, body, and organs. Plus, it will help wake you up and give you more energy throughout the day!
