If you think you’ve lost all hope in your weight-loss plan, don’t give up just yet. What I have is the knowledge of many powerfully effective ways to boost metabolism fast and I have compiled a “Quick-Pick” list just for you to take maximum advantage of. You have nothing to lose but fat so let’s go!

My Quick-Pick List of the BEST Ways to Boost Metabolism FAST! And How to Use Them!

1. Drink plenty of water.

Okay, I’m not saying drink a certain amount of water everyday, like the typical 8 glasses you hear about. Just drink when you’re thirsty (and don’t wait until you’re mouth is dry and you’re dying of thirst) and drink until you’re not thirsty anymore. Every body is different so just stay in tuned with yours. Repeat as necessary.

Here is the benefit. The water not only helps to cleanse your system and regenerate your cells but can also help you to retain less water. Sounds ironic, huh? This is because when your body isn’t receiving enough water, it holds onto what it does have for survival. However when it’s getting a good amount of water, it releases the retained water because it no longer has a need for it. Strange how that works, isn’t it?

2. DO NOT skip breakfast! I repeat DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST!!

When you sit down and enjoy a healthy breakfast, you are actually giving your metabolism a booster jump and helps it to wake it up from “starvation mode”. When you are sleeping at night, your body’s metabolic rate slows down significantly because you don’t use that much energy while you are resting. (Now it makes sense when you hear don’t eat big meals right before bedtime?) Your body spends the whole night focusing on everything else except digestion. Therefore it’s your job to recharge your rested body whenever you wake up. Try this method and you should start seeing improvements quickly!

Eggs are a great breakfast menu item. You can make an omelet with veggies, a little bit of cheese or maybe one with ham or sausage. The protein from the eggs will keep you full and energized all the way until lunch time. Chase it down with fresh squeezed orange juice and you’ll be ready to attack anything that day! If you load up on sugar cereals and processed breakfast foods, you’ll be sure to feel sluggish and hungry all morning.

3. Eat Small Meals and Eat Them Often.

Your stomach takes roughly 3 hours to completely digest the meal you just consumed so your goal should be to eat a small healthy meal (or snack) every 3 hours or so. Ideally this should be done BEFORE you get start to get hungry again. This way, your body stay be more nourished and you will not experience those strong hunger urges.

This works the same as the water process. If you’re starving yourself, your body will hold onto all it can to survive. If you continue to give it the necessary vitamins and minerals with the right foods, you will turn your body into a fat burning machine and boost metabolism fast!

These “right” foods consist of “negative calorie foods” like fruits and vegetables. A great snack that would satisfy a sweet and salty craving would be celery sticks topped with chunky peanut butter and dried cranberries. Even a fruit smoothie would quench your thirst on a hot day, give you fuel, AND boost your metabolism fast!
