Answer #1

Just FYI in case you want to know the proper spelling, it’s “metabolism”.

And speeding it up? Exercise.

Exercise will reduce body fat and increase lean muscle mass. By increasing lean muscle mass, metabolism will increase and aid in the weight-loss process. Muscle tissue uses more calories than fat tissue because it has a higher metabolic rate. Aerobic exercise, like walking, swimming or cycling, has the added bonus of speeding up your metabolism for 4 to 8 hours after you stop exercising.

my friend was trying to do the same, she started eating small meals at 2 hour intervals. she kept this up for a while and ended up losing some weight, if that is your goal. small meals every 2 hours.

or what i did to lose 20 lbs was eat less, the average 3 meals a day but smaller portions, quit candy/soda pop, and stopped in-between snacking.

i wouldnt say thats a way of speeding up a metabolism but it did work at losing weight.

Answer #3

Exercise…..once you start doing exercise, you burn more calories even at rest.

Answer #4

Green tea can help with that if you have some disability to not let you exercise. But I agree 100% with Dara exercise and muscle tissue will help you tremendously in weight loss. But you also have to eat right

Answer #5

The only enemies there are in foods are sugar, hydrated oil, margarine(a big no, no x_x) and substitute butter. Keep an eye out for those Unhealthy foods that are labeled “healthy” for you such as Orange, muffins, “whole wheat bread”, so called healthy cereal, certain salad dressings( a lot of these just turn into sugar as soon as you eat ‘em). Hundreds of so called healthy food are just as bad if not worse for you than just reg food. Those so called healthy snack bars such as Sunbelt, nutragrain, etc, are like candy bars in disguise.

Getting to the topic of carbs, Ditch whole wheat. Whole wheat will create increase in blood sugar and insulin just as much as any other believe it or not. But you needn’t cut bread out or reduce your fiber intake. Sprouted grain bread, rice, spelt bread, millet, quinoa, sweet potatoes are good alternatives.You get your fiber and it’s just good for you(or at least a h3ll of a lot better). Fruits and veggies are also a good source for fiber and are obviously healthy for you (and diet that cuts this out of your food intake is a rip off, and the people are insane O_O) Some people claim you need to cut fats from your diet, that’s miss information as well. You need to eat fat to loose fat. Fat does not make you fat. The right kind of fat increases your metabolic system to burn unwanted fat. Good fat can be found in things such as whole eggs, avocado, olive oil, raw nuts, coconut oil, and REAL butter. Bad fat that you want to avoid would be things such as canola oil/vegetable oil, hydrated oils, margarine, substitute butter, and processed foods.

Processed foods contain artificial sweeteners, high fructose, corn syrup, processed soy products, hydrated oils, and many harmful chemicals to your body. Here’s some good for thought: the liver breaks down fat and harmful chemicals in your body. If you cut down on the processed foods which contain these chemicals you cut down the work your liver has to do in breaking these chemicals down. In cutting down or even eliminating these chemicals(which may be near impossible) you enable your liver to spend more time breaking down more fat.

Try regulating your blood sugar by watching you sugar consumption. Over 100 insulin kicks in to lower your blood sugar. Insulin signals to your body to store fat. If your blood pressure is to low you’ll feel fatigue, tired, perhaps even hungry(which low blood sugar can also be a result of starving yourself). In the 90’s is supposedly “the fat burning zone”. But you don’t have to have a blood sugar test to watch your blood sugar, just watch what you eat.

Going on a crash diet or just flat out starving yourself will hinder you more than help. It kicks in your body’s “starvation mode” in which your body will store every last ounce of fat it can. It makes you fatigue, tired. Not only this, but it will DESTROY your metabolism in the long run. So you may be slender now, but later on when you develop a healthy appetite, you’ll def. have to watch what you eat or you’ll gain do to damaging your metabolism. It’s not good, don’t do it.

Another thing, f*ck counting calories. You’re actually able to eat more calories then what the media will have you think. If you eat the eight foods you can eat a lot more than you think.

Also, you have to remember everyone is different. The portions of food I consume may be larger, or ever smaller than the portions of others. I have to eat every few hours, though I’m sure I eat more when I’m at home. I snack a lot through out the day ad have med. size meals(not small meals). I’m not fat, no where near it, & actually becoming toned now that I’m working out. I’ve a friend who eats even more than me(mind you I eat A LOT, I can down nearly 10 plates piles high at a buffet and still be hungry). He’s so skinny you can count vertebrae down his back. The key to a healthy metabolism and eating is knowing your body. Eating the right portion size for you. They can be large, HUGE, or even small(note: if you’re hungry most the time then your portions are too small). Don’t be afraid to eat. And f*ck dieting, they’re not good for your metabolism anyways. Just know what to eat, and ENJOY the foods you eat. Don’t be afraid to splurge on junk food once in a blue moon either(within a bit of reason). And exercises a few times a week. Exercises could be anything from swimming to dancing to parkor(sp?). As long you’re moving and challenging your body. And don’t forget to enjoy your exercises.

Best of Luck 1_~
