Tips To Increase Your Metabolism
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you feeling sluggish in the day to day grind known as life. Well this could be caused by a simply problem, low metabolism. Your metabolism is like a fire, when you fuel it properly you will burn calories, and build energy efficently and effectively. The simple way to look at this is the slower your metabolism the less energy your body requires and uses. This causes us to store more food in the form of fat.

For many adults, their metabolism has slowed over the years as a result of many different factors and ultimately what ends up happening is the end up seeing what is known as "weight creep". So what is weight creep you ask? well it is simply when a person gains over the years. You can notice it when you go to put on a favorite outfit that once fit perfectly, but when you put it on, it now seems tighter and doesn't fit as nice. If this sounds like something you may have experienced, do not feel alone ? Most adults experience "weight creep," where the numbers on the scale gradually increase every year-- and before you know it, you're 20 pounds heavier than you were before.

In order for people to achieve consistent and sustained weight loss, and avoid weight creep, it is highly recommended to focus on improving your metabolism rate. Below are 5 easy to do tips for increasing your metabolism

TIP #1 to increase your metabolism Eat through out the day, five or six times a day if possible. I don't mean six full meals but rather your three daily meals and lower calorie high energy snacks. If you deprive your body of food it will begin to store the food intake instead of using it for energy

TIP #2 to increase your metabolism Portion control, is another important factor . Eating too much will cause your metabolism to slow down. Think of it if you have a fire, to keep a fire burning consistently you would put maybe one or two logs on it, but over eating is more like throwing 7 or 8 logs on it. When you do this is takes a lot longer for the fire to spark the logs and for them to burn. The same goods for the food you take in.

TIP #3 to increase your metabolism Increase muscle and decrease fat in your body. A good way to achieve this is possible with regular exercise. The right amount of exercise daily, combined with proper food intake will help to decrease your fat and increase your muscle. When you have a higher muscle that fat ratio, your metabolism will rise and your body will use the energy instead of storing it.

TIP #4 to increase your metabolism Another great tip that everyone forgets about is, to drink your 8 glasses or more of water a day. Water is the main component of the human body and it is also a key component to flushing toxins and waste from our body.

Hopefully you will find these tips for increasing your metabolism helpful. With only a few small lifestyle changes, it is easy to increase your metabolism, feel better and generally be healthier. Always remember that your body did not get this way over night, so the fix can not be expected the same way. But small changes over time lead to results.
