Boost Your Metabolism!

Wed, 5 Jul 2006

Turbocharge your body's calorie burn-rate! To keep your metabolism at top speed, use these tips from researchers at Moses Taylor Hospital in Pennsylvania:

  • Don't skip meals or snacks, especially breakfast - you'll activate your body's starvation response and actually slow your metabolic rate! Small meals throughout the day keep your furnace burning at a steady pace.
  • Go aerobic - choose a routine with enough intensity to make a difference! Walking, biking, cross-country skiing, swimming, and step aerobics are all good choices.
  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes - after a half-hour, your body starts tapping into stored energy (a.k.a. fat) to keep moving!
  • Shake it up - change your workout every six weeks. Your body will have to work harder to adapt to a new routine!
  • Avoid alcohol and smoking - both keep your body from burning belly fat!
