For anyone trying to lose weight, metabolism boosters are a great weight to kick your weight loss into high gear. I’m going to tell you several ways to do this absolutely free, without having to endanger your health taking pills and products that probably won’t work.
Your metabolism can de defined as the rate at which your body breaks down food and turns it into energy. If you have a fast metabolism, good for you! Your body burns energy quickly, and for this reason you will find it much easier to lose weight. If you have a slow metabolism, on the other hand, you’re going to find it more difficult to lose weight, as your body tends to burn energy at a slower rate. You could definitely benefit from metabolism boosters.
You will find a great many products marketed on the internet and even in health stores that claim to be metabolism boosters. The vast majority of these pills and potions are simply caffeine pills. Some claim to contain ephedra or a close alternative “bitter orange”. Ephedra is a banned substance in the US since 2004 due to the associated risks of heart attack and stroke. A few studies have shown some marginal increase in weight loss for people taking regulated amounts, but the increase was less than 1lb extra loss per month. Don’t waste your money or risk your health!
Natural metabolism boosters
There are plenty of natural metabolism boosters available to anyone without a huge cost or a health risk. First and foremost – increase your muscle mass. Having more muscle increases your metabolism (this is why men find it easier to lose weight than women.) Add some strength training into your routine as well cardio, and make sure to keep your protein intake up. This will ensure that you’re not losing muscle along with fat.
Eating highly-spiced food can increase your metabolism for several hours. This is not an excuse to eat a high-calorie, fat-saturated curry! Choose normal healthy meals, but add fresh chillies and ginger to give an extra taste boost as well as a metabolism booster.
Stay away from alcohol – alcohol is a sugar, and as long as it’s in your body, you will be burning the alcohol instead of the fat. Studies have shown that having just two drinks can decrease fat burning by 73% until the alcohol is out of your system. Hmm. Suddenly that glass of wine doesn’t sound so tempting!
In addition to these natural metabolism boosters, there are a huge number of natural foods (not protein powder or diet bars) that you can eat to help you get into that fat burning zone. You can download a free report and watch a very informative video right here.
