Increase Your Metabolism

View the original article

1. Maximize your muscle. Muscles are fat-burning furnaces.

2. Don't forget the cardio. It improves definition and blasts the fat that covers your muscles.

3. Be sure to stretch. It can help your muscles work better so you can more effectively isolate your problem areas.

4. Focus on your assets. Playing up your favorite body parts can boost your confidence and draw attention away from spots you want to minimize.

5. Don't starve yourself. Undereating causes your metabolic rate to drop and your body to hold onto fat.

6. Go graze-y. Eat 6 small meals a day to avoid blood-sugar spikes and minimize urges to binge.

7. Get real. Fuel your body with wholesome, nutritious foods, and limit your intake of refined carbs (anything sugary or white-flour based).

8. Drink More Water. Staying hydrated will help you feel full longer and keep you healthy.

9. Sleep tight. Get 7-8 hours of Z's a night.

10. Control what you can. Keep stress levels in check by managing your time, focusing on the present and not over-committing.
