Fast Metabolism Tips

Two Different ways of making weight loss by different rates of metabolism, diet or weight.

These are some simple tips to help speed up your metabolism. Interval Training. Have you ever noticed that some people do a ton of cardio but stop losing weight after awhile? It's because their metabolism has stabilized. Your body's metabolism will quickly adapt to it's environment. To fix this use interval training by starting off at a slower speed and kicking it up to high levels then back down. There are many ways to do this. The key is to push your body to different levels. If you do it right you can really speed up your metabolism and burn a lot of calories.

Don't skip breakfast. While you sleep your body goes into energy conservation mode and it slows down your metabolism. Eating first thing in the morning will help speed up your metabolism by giving it a good start. A good breakfast consists of complex carbohydrates like whole grain bread, egg whites, and fruit like a banana. Eat 5-6 meals a day. You don't need to eat a lot, you just need to spread out your meals and eat often. When you do this your body knows it is going to get the next meal and doesn't worry about storing the food as fat. This is a great way to speed up your metabolism.

Change what you eat. Just as eating more frequently will speed up your metabolism and so will what you eat. Eating foods high in sugar content will cause your blood sugar to spike forcing your body to store it as fat. Try to eat more whole grain foods, fruits, and vegetables. However, a healthy diet, combined with proper exercise training program will eventually turn a fat body into a lean, muscular body, increasing the burning of calories 24 hours a day. Drink Green Tea. Green tea has fat burning properties.

Studies have shown the positive effects it has on increasing metabolism. You will find green tea in many diet pills. Exercise. You need to move your body to speed up your metabolism and burn calories. At least 30 minutes a day is needed. This will increase your metabolism for 4 to 8 hours after you stop exercising so you will be burning calories long after you stop exercising. Weight Training. By building more muscle your body's metabolism will speed up to support that new muscle, causing you to burn more calories.

Women shouldn't fear weight training you don't have enough testosterone to bulk you up. If you really want a faster metabolism weight training is a must. Muscle burns 73 more calories per kilogram of fat per day than does fat. So the more muscle you have, the higher your resting metabolic rate will be. The more muscle the better because it burns calories 24 hours per day. This is the only way to increase your resting metabolic rate, which is responsible for 60 to 70 percent of the calories you burn each day.

There is some thought that leptin may also play a role in regulating metabolism. If it has control of hunger, it makes sense that it might also work with metabolism. At times, the rate of your metabolism is in direct relation to how much you are eating and when you are eating, along with other factors like age and water intake. If lower levels of leptin trigger hunger, it might also mean your metabolism is stunted because the body feels it has to conserve what body fat it has stored away.
