Firing up your metabolism can be quick, simple and easy.

You might have a metabolism with the speed of a tortoise, a

cheetah or anything in between. Men tend to burn calories faster

than women, even while resting. Unfortunately for most people,

metabolism slows steadily after the age of 40.

Although you can’t control your age, gender or genetics, you can

improve your metabolism. Learn more about your “fire within” that

does the fat burning for you, so you can master your weight loss


1. Eat 5 to 6 meals a day, including breakfast

Having a small meal or a snack every 3 to 4 hours keeps your

metabolism raving, so you burn more calories throughout the


2. Start your day with exercise

Working out first thing in the morning also helps you burn

calories all day long – even when you’re eating and not just

when you’re snoring away in bed.

3. Drink more water

dehydrated (even the slightest bit), your metabolism may slow


4. Eat your omega-3’s

Omega-3’s balance blood sugar and reduce inflammation –

important in regulating metabolism.

5. Lift weights

Not only does muscle weight more than fat, but it uses more

energy too. For example, a woman in her 30s who strength-

trains for 30 to 40 minutes twice a week for four months will

increase her resting metabolism by 100 calories a day!
