7. Epsom Salt Bath
Soaking in a hot bathtub with some Epsom salt is a great way to relax, detox, and naturally increase your metabolism. Add two cups of Epsom salts to your bath two or three times each week to naturally keep your metabolism working at its best.
8. Get Your Sunshine One
Vitamin D does so much more for our health than we are even aware of. You can get plenty of vitamin D simply by spending some time in the sunlight. Higher levels of vitamin D in the blood have been linked to lower rates of disease as well as to a healthy metabolism. Try your best to get 20 to 30 minutes of sunlight on your bare skin each day.
9. Portion Control
The old saying “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper” is a good practice to get in the habit of. Make breakfast your biggest meal of the day but limit what you eat in the evenings when your metabolism is getting ready to shut down for the night.
10. Get Some Exercise
You don’t have to run a marathon to get the benefits that exercise has to offer. Simply get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. Try walking on your lunch break and getting some extra time in walking the dog each afternoon.
11. Don’t Forget Calcium
Believe it or not, studies have shown that those who get enough calcium each day tend to weigh less than those who don’t. Be sure to add some yogurt, hard cheese, or even some milk into your daily diet to keep your metabolism working at its absolute best.
12. Eat Protein Filled Snacks
Think of protein as fuel for your metabolism furnace. Instead of having junk food as a snack, try protein filled snacks such as peanut butter (or other types of nut butters), ham roll ups, or other types of protein filled snacks.
13. Don’t Forget HIIT
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Therapy. This has been a scientifically proven way to super charge your metabolism. HIIT simply means that you do short bursts of intense activity followed by a rest period. You can do this pretty easily by running to the bus stop, doing jumping jacks during television commercials, or any time you have a minute or two to get your heart rate going.
If you follow these tips, you cannot lose! Well, you can’t lose anything but a few pounds anyway!
