Metabolism is the process our body uses to convert our food into energy.  A high metabolism will allow our body to burn any excess calories, sugar, and carbs that we take in.  However, as we age and as we gain excess weight our metabolism starts to slow down. 

There are many changes we can make in our day-to-day routine to give our metabolism a boost.  Here are some small changes you can make on a daily basis:

  • Add a natural diet pill to your daily regimen.  There is a wide selection of effective pills available today that help suppress your appetite and assist in boosting your metabolism.
  • Find a way to move more.  Exercise is always key to weight loss and increased metabolism.  Look for small ways to make more movement into your day.  You could walk on your lunch or coffee break, or take the stairs instead of the elevator.  The more small workouts you do throughout the day, the more you will increase your metabolism.
  • As we age we lose muscle mass.  If you focus on adding more resistance training to your exercise routine, you can increase your metabolism.  This does not mean you need to become a body builder, think handheld weights, pushups, squats, and lunges.
  • With our busy lifestyles and trying to be in ten places at once, we often don’t get the rest we need.  As tricky as it can be, try to get on a sleep schedule that includes a full 8hrs of rest per night.  If our bodies don’t get the rest they need they go into “stress” mode which can trigger hunger and evening snacking.
  • Drink more water.  If our body is not able to flush out toxins on a regular basis your metabolism slows down.  Carry water with you wherever you go to help ensure you stay hydrated.

These steps are simple, but are a move in the right direction to boosting your metabolism.
