    1. Get up and get out: Exercise is one of the most important energy boosters there is. Living the life of a couch potato lowers your energy levels. Your heart and lungs do not work as efficiently supplying less oxygen to the cells. Oxygen is a key component in cell metabolism and less oxygen means a slower metabolism. As your metabolism drops you burn fewer calories and gain weight. A slow metabolism will also cause you to feel fatigued and run down.

    Exercise can reverse this energy drain. It increases cardiovascular efficiency, pumping more blood through the body and therefore greater amounts of oxygen, increasing the metabolic efficiency of the cells and the body as a whole.

    2. Boost your breakfast: Most people make the mistake of either not eating breakfast or if they do it consists of a big cup of coffee and some sort of sugar filled sweet roll. While it satisfies the taste buds it long term energy output is minimal. Once the caffeine wears off and your blood sugar drops you’ll be ready for that midmorning nap.

    Eating a breakfast high in complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereal with skim milk and fruit will give you a long sustained energy source that keeps your metabolism at its optimum level well until lunch.

    3. 8 Hours in the sack: Nothing recharges the batteries like a good night sleep. Sleep is the time when the body renews and heals itself. The best way to get more sleep is to go to bed earlier. That might put a damper on your channel surfing but your metabolism will thank you. Here are 5 ways to help improve your sleep.

    • Exercise regularly

    • Get on a schedule and go to bed about the same time every night.

    • Eat a high carbohydrate snack before bed.

    • Don’t drink caffeinated drinks before bed.

    • Avoid alcoholic beverages before bed. You will not sleep as soundly with alcohol in your system.

    4. Know your prime energy time: Are you a morning person or an evening person. Your body’s energy runs in cycles, with high energy and low energy periods. Make a note of your energy cycles, when they are high and when they are low. Plan your major tasks at your high energy times and you’ll breeze right through them.

    5. Have fun: Do things that make you happy. Take the time to partake in activities that you enjoy everyday, if possible. It doesn’t have to be the same thing everyday but taking the time to do something fun decreases stress and helps to motivate you.

    6. Take a break: Taking a break from work every one and a half to two hours helps refresh our minds and bodies. If your mind starts to wander or you find yourself wishing to take a nap during work get up from your desk and take a walk and get some fresh air. Movement is your body’s best friend and helps jump start your metabolism giving you the energy to get through the day.

    7. Alcohol is a downer: Alcohol, as we all know, is a depressant. While it can make us loose our inhibitions at the end of the night your reaction times are slowed and drowsiness takes hold. What you may not realize is the fatigue and slowed thinking will continue the next day. Even if you only have a beer or two a day you may notice a vast difference in your energy levels if you eliminate the alcohol.

    By following these seven tips you can boost your energy and increase your metabolism and before you know it your fatigue and lack of motivation will be a thing of the past. And who knows, you may even burn a few extra calories and lose some weight.

    Yeah – great question – EAT! THat will actually help raise your metabolism!

    Strange hua?

    In fact, a few different personal trainers at my gym told me that people are supposed to eat every 2 hours! By actually eating HEALTHY foods every 2 hours it helps raise your metabolism and therefore helps you loose weight!

    Also you should have one cheat day a week. She (my trainer) always says to stick to a diet 6 days a week and then have a cheat day 1 day a week – that doesn’t mean to go crazy and knock yourself out by eating only chocolate and hoards of it – but go out to eat, eat that slice of cake – enjoy it! And then, then, get back to your normal days or not eating it.

    This really helps your body not get too adjusted to the same routine. Your metabolism will slow down if you are staying on the same calorie intake day after day. So you are supposed to change things up. Plus this gives us all something to look forward to!

    Anyway – I do hope this helps. I have lost weight and have kept it off doing this. Good luck.

    Exercise and eat small but frequent meals.

    Your metabolism gets lower if you allow too much time between meals and your body goes to starvation mode. Avoid fad diets, eat balanced diet with enough protein and little sugar and your metabolism will be just fine.

  4. bob writes:

    Exercise. Eating more total food will raise your metabolism but usually not enough to counter the extra calories youre taking in (you will probably gain weight). But eating the same amount of food but over say 6 meals a day will raise your metabolism and not your calorie intake. People with high metabolisms never seem to sit still and keep moving even if they are sitting.

  5. joshbason writes:

    Yes actually. To kickstart and fire your metabolism, you have to eat. And eat and eat and eat. But not 3 large meals a day. What you’re gonna want to do is to separate those into about 7 or 8 smaller, slightly balanced meals. Small. Like, maybe a few ounces of chicken for protein, and a few ounces of vegetables for vitamins. And the next one can consist of noodles and a peice of bread. And drink lots of water to go with this, after all, it is actually considered a nutrient. Keep each meal under about 6 oz each. But make sure you get your Recommended Daily Values for vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, fiber, and proteins. What this does is propel your metabolism forward like a train. Instead of a boost, and then slowing back down, only to pick back up again with the next meal, this process doesn’t let the metabolism even have a break. It keeps a constant flow of nutrients and you will always have energy. No crashes throughout the day. Which is good. More energy for exercise, which can be simple of rigorous. Just a light jog from your car in the lot to your office is a nice dose of exercise. So remember: small portioned, balanced meals; water; exercise. Best of luck

    Eating foods high in protein raises the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) a little.
    Doing aerobics raises BMR, while youare doing a work out, but it gets back to base line in 20 mins.
    Doing resistance-training elevates the BMR for 24-48 hrs.
    Having small frequent meal rather than a couple of large ones is also a strategy.
    Try these.

    Caffeine will boost your metabolism…most weight loss product on the market will caffeine and a main ingredient. Also eating a high protein and/or high fiber foods right away in the morning will start your metabolism but will also give you a feeling of fullness longer. That will increase the calories burned through the day. Finally one of the best and probably most natural way is to work out right away in the morning, this will also get the body started and gets your metabolism working

  8. Scott L writes:

    1. You can raise it by increasing your lean body mass (muscle). This requires resistance training. The more muscle tissue you have, the more energy your body requires for maintenance.

    2. Eating good quality, lean, low carb sources of protein. Since protein requires your body to consume calories to convert it to either glycogen or fat, it actually helps your body burn calories. This is a process called thermogenesis.

    3. There are some indications that you can create a slight metabolic increase by drinking 6-8 glass a day of icewater. Since the water is near freezing wehn it enters your body, your body has to expend energy to raise the temperature of the water.

    4. Eat regularly. Don’t keep your body guessing as to when it will be nurished. If you nurish it constantly at regular intervals, it is less prone to enter “starvation mode” to protect stored bodyfat and lower metabolism.

    You can add a B complex vitamin w/your meals. Try B6 or B12.

    Tips to increase your metabolism

    Interval training – great way to boost metabolism

    Increase your protein intake : It helps in building muscle tissue. More muscles burn more fat and increases your metabolism.

    Eating foods that speed up metabolism –

    Eat breakfast everyday : Do not skip breakfast. Breakfast is break the fast that we have done overnight. Skipping breakfast makes your metabolism slower and makes you hungry which you tend to compensate by eating a lot later.

    Eat smaller, more frequent meals (eat 4-6 six small meals) – More frequent meals keep your metabolism charged .

    Exerecise to fire up your metabolism and burn more calories – Try 30-60 minutes of physical activity a day. It increases your metabolism .

    Take the stairs and park your car further away from the shops – You will end up burning more calories.

    Yes. You’re right. Besides exercise, eating the right foods and eating frequently can help you raise your metabolism naturally. What this means is:

    1) Eat more “slow release foods” – complex carbs that the body takes longer and requires more energy to digest. This results in a steady rise in metabolic rate. Complex carbs are high fiber, whole grain foods, veg and fruits.

    2) Eat small, frequent meals at least 5 to 6 times a day.

    3) Eat more protein. The body has to burn more calories to digest protein, thus increasing the metabolic rate.

    In this way, the body is made to burn calories throughout the day which is a good thing for weight loss.

    Hope this helps.
