5 Ways to Speed Your Metabolism

By: Lisa Buldo

The key to speeding your metabolism is to re-ignite the furnace inside of you. The key is eating and exercising. You will never jump start your metabolism by not eating. Eating is absolutely key! Isn't that good to know? You must adapt a healthy way of eating before you begin to exercise, especially if you have been sedentary for a while.

You hear stories of people who go out to shovel snow, and have a heart attack on the spot. Many times it's because they weren't used to exercising the heart that hard, and the heart couldn't take it. For this reason, I believe it is important to get the nutrition down first. For speeding the metabolism, you need to do a few things:

1. Eat some protein at each meal to keep the body in calorie burning mode and your glycemic index as low as possible.

2. Drink half your body weight in ounces daily. It will help you detoxify daily.

3. Eat at least 2 large servings of dark leafy greens daily. (Preferably with lunch and supper). Green vegetables clean and deodorize our bodies, our blood, our tissues and our organs. Eat lots of greens if you want a healthy life!

4. Eat unprocessed, natural whole foods as much as possible. Processed foods only sustain life, but do nothing to promote health.

5. Eat organic foods whenever possible. They don't contain antibiotics and growth hormones.

Extra Bonus Tip

Once you have the nutrition down in just a couple of weeks, be sure to get the okay from your doctor to start an exercise program.

Start to incorporate exercise slowly. Never go gangbusters if you've been sedentary for a while. Ease into it, and increase by 5 minutes per day until you are comfortable with 20-30 minutes of aerobic exercise daily. Strength training and Flexibility are also a must!

You can do it. You will have more energy and you will feel great!
