Increase Your Metabolism: Naturally!

  |  in Blog, Exercises, General, Nutrition TipsNo Comments

Yes, there are ways that you can increase your metabolism naturally! Start speeding up your metabolism through nutrition and fitness. Read below.

Metabolism-Boosting Foods
Food does some amazing things for our bodies, including fight disease, so it’s not a suprise that some foods naturally boost your metabolism. Try adding some of the following foods to your diet each day:

- green tea
- oatmeal
- grapefruit
- broccoli
- hot peppers
- low-fat dairy
- acai juice
- lean meats

Metabolism-Boosting Exercises
Burning calories means adding activity to our lifestyles, and exercise sessions are the real metabolism boosters. Try incorporating both cardio and strength exercises like:

- Cardiovascular: biking, brisk walking, elliptical trainers, climbing stairs, or aerobics class
- Muscle building: lifting weights, using resistance bands, push ups, squats, and chin-ups
- Circuit training: a combination of cardio exercise alternating with muscle-building exercises

Metabolism-Slowing Pitfalls

Just as there are natural ways to boost your metabolism, there are also natural ways you slow your metabolism–often without even knowing about it. Here are a few:

- Skipping meals–always eat breakfast!
- Sleeping less than 6 hours a night.
- Eating empty calorie foods–exchange them for low carb, low-fat, high nutrition foods.
- Choosing processed foods–exchange them for whole grains.
