Some people are thankful for their high metabolism and some people hate having slow metabolism, but we all want what we don’t have. If you have a slow metabolism and want to boost it, then these 8 ways might help. I envy those that have a high metabolism because I love food and I want to be able to eat everything in this world without gaining weight. However, there are pros and cons to it all. Although it might seem ideal to not gain weight, it can suck if you have goals to build muscle. There are many arguments and factors that determine a fast or slow metabolism but follow these tips and see if they are effective to boost your metabolism, burn fat, and lose weight.


Pump it up

Lift weights to increase lean muscle mass. Every pound of lean muscle burns 14 calories a day.

Switch to HIIT

Instead of doing steady-paced cardio, switch to high-intensity interval training. I find it dreadful to walk for hours on a treadmill, so doing quick workouts with intense bursts of energy saves time. Jump ropes, sprints, and burpees are great HIIT examples.

Don’t starve yourself

Although being in a caloric deficit helps to lose weight, underfeeding your body on a regular basis will change your metabolism to adapt to the new lower calorie intake. It’s not sustainable for long term results.

Power up with protein

Consuming plenty of protein can make you burn an extra 100 – 200 calories a day.

Sip on black coffee

Studies have shown that caffeine can boost metabolism by 3 -11 percent.

Exercising has a ton of benefits, so stand up and move more throughout the day. If you work from home, get up and stretch or walk around your workspace every hour.

Stay hydrated

It’s important to drink water, but your body needs water to process calories.

Get enough rest

It’s important to get enough sleep at night because a lack of sleep can be linked to being overweight. It happens to be that when you lack sleep, you eat and crave more.

In conclusion, all of these tips have an effect on one another so you’d need to put in the effort for each of them. We are all in control of our metabolism and it’s important to make small lifestyle changes to boost it.
