topics-09Keys to speeding up your metabolism!

You can speed up your metabolism by understanding a few things about your body and following simple tips. First, consuming the right foods will boost the rate at which your body burns calories. Protein, for instance, helps you build lean mass, while at the same time burning more calories than fat. This is because the protein molecules are so large it takes your body more energy to break them apart and digest them.

Consuming foods that are high in fiber, iron, and calcium also result in an increase of your metabolic rate. On the flipside, when you eat processed foods, your body doesn’t have to work to digest it. It simply dissolves in your stomach and your body gets accustomed to not having to digest.

Remember to stay hydrated, and eat steadily throughout the day, and finally, consider weight training as an investment into changing your metabolic rate.
