13 Natural Steps To Activate Your Body’s Own Natural Fat Burning Hormones
We all know someone who seems to be able to eat anything and everything, yet they never seem to gain a pound. These people seem to have naturally high metabolisms that burn off all their calories and gives them plenty of energy.
Now while you can’t change your genes so that you get that super high metabolism, you can do things to naturally increase it.
Keep reading and discover 13 natural steps you can take to increase your metabolism so that you become a fat burning machine that has energy to spare!
1. Get Your Rest
It is a proven fact that not getting enough sleep makes you grumpy and fat. Rearrange your schedule so that you get 7 to 9 hours of sleep almost every day. Your body uses this time to “reset” your metabolism for the next day as well as cleaning out old hormones while making new hormones.
2. Eat Frequent Meals

When you skip meals, you tend to overeat at the next meal or you snack because you are hungry. Eating 3 regular meals each day with two snacks will stop you from being hungry while keeping your metabolism running smoothly all day long.

The majority of your diet should be made up of vegetables, protein, fruits and whole grains. Processed foods contain toxins and stop the body from working the way it should, especially when it comes to your metabolism. Eat the way Mother Nature intended you to eat: natural foods and organic meats.
5. Cold Showers
Try ending your morning shower with a 10 second blast of cold water. This immediately improves your circulation and stimulates the metabolism.
6. Don’t Forget Breakfast
Your metabolism naturally slows down overnight. You can tell your body that it’s time to get back to normal by eating breakfast. Try eating some protein in the morning to really get your metabolism up and working.
