8 Easy Ways To Rev Up Your Metabolism

These tips are peak health when it comes to attaining the body that you want.

Wellness

Since the 1980s, businesses have come out with products that guarantee a quick-fix to improving a slow metabolism. Between pills, teas, and dietary routines, consumers fall for one fix after the next, with hopes that their metabolism can be expedited. However, in the last decade, researchers have released studies that support a healthier, safer way of speeding up the metabolism than consuming pills and enhanced teas.

This way encourages the consumer to increase their exercise routine and implement specific foods into one's every day diet to boost one's metabolism. Boosting your metabolism alone will not lead to significant weight loss. Nevertheless, boosting your metabolism in addition to eating healthier, and exercising frequently will lead to weight loss; and it will have you zeroing in on your goal weight in no time.

Below, check out the eight healthy tips, two workout routines and six dietary suggestions, that will inevitably speed up your metabolism faster than you could have ever imagined.

Get Into High Intensity Workout Routines

Looking to speed up your metabolism? Try replacing your standard workout routine with a High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout routine instead. HIIT is a workout routine set up in a ratio between high-intensity exercise and low intensity/medium intensity exercise. Meaning, the workout routine has you work out at your maximum effort and then it requires you to take little time to rest before you're at your maximum effort again. For example, you could run around a track at your maximum speed, and once you have completed running around the track, you rest for 30 seconds to a minute, and do it all over again.

The benefit of HIIT compared to a traditional workout is HIIT has the ability to increase your metabolism for hours after your workout by stimulating the human growth hormone. This allows you to burn fat faster, burn more calories after your workout is over, and develop the same or better cardiovascular conditioning in faster time.

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.
