8 Easy Ways To Rev Up Your Metabolism

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.

Eat Your Omega-3s


Omega-3 Fats, oh how we love you so. Already recommended to be consumed at least twice a week by the American Health Association, salmon is a great addition to anyone's meal plan, especially if you're wanting to speed up your metabolism. As a protein, salmon requires more energy to digest, and similar to oatmeal, it slows down the rate of blood sugar entering the blood stream. Meaning, it'll make you feel full quicker and keep hunger and cravings throughout the day low.

Studies have found that consuming salmon, which has omega 3-rich fish oil and fatty acids, increases calories burned and resting metabolic rate (RMR). The higher your RMR, the more your body burns energy while at complete rest. So, the next time you're at the grocery store, consider spending a little extra on some salmon; this simple change in protein can be the metabolic kick your body has been waiting for.

It wasn’t too long ago that someone asked me how I was able to come up with so many different topics when it comes to vaginas. That’s kind of a funny story for another time. What I will say, as it relates to this particular one, is I find it to be quite fascinating that with the amount of vaginas that will be putting in some serious work over Valentine’s Day, there aren’t more articles like this out in cyberspace. I mean, because with as active as so many of them will be, shouldn’t they get some special V-Day treatment? I would certainly think so.
