6 Ways to Fire Up Your Metabolism

By Monica Ciociola
From Team Beachbody - Click here for resources, tools and information to help you to reach your health, fitness and positive lifestyle goals!

It can be discouraging when our results don't seem to match the efforts we're putting in. But instead of giving up on our fitness program, or worse, diving into the Twinkies (trust me, you'll regret it!), try making just a few, easy changes to your diet and lifestyle. Sometimes the smallest things—like getting more protein in the morning or enough rest at night—can lead to the biggest weight loss surprises.

  1. Lean proteinDon't skip breakfast. Eating lean protein in the morning will get your metabolism revved up for the day ahead. Protein from egg whites, for instance, will stabilize your blood sugar, make you feel full, and prevent you from overeating later in the day.

  2. Resistance band trainingResistance training. Working out with some form of resistanceresistance bands, weights, or a stability ballhelps build your muscles. And because one pound of muscle burns almost nine times more calories than a pound of fat, the more muscle you have on your body, the quicker your metabolic rate.

  3. Interval TrainingInterval training. Short 10-minute explosive cardio sessions followed by less intense cardio for the same amount of time will rev up your metabolism. For some of the best interval training workouts, check out Tony's all-new Power 90® Fat Burning System.

  4. Get your beauty restGet your beauty rest. Human growth hormone works directly on cells to increase your metabolic rate by 15 to 20 percent and can only be produced during the hours of deep sleep. So make sure you get a good night's sleep!

  5. Lean proteins with complex carbohydrates The Magic Mix. At mealtime, try consuming lean proteins from chicken and white fish along with complex carbohydrates from fruits and veggies. This magical combination will speed up your metabolic rate as food is transformed into usable nutrients and you'll build muscle and burn fat during the digestive process.

  6. Hot peppers, spices, green teas, and caffeineAy, caliente! Studies show that hot peppers, spices, green teas, and caffeine can give your metabolism a sudden surge by stimulating the release of stress hormones.
