How to Speed Up Your Metabolism:
- Drink water when you're thirsty. there, that was easy.
- try lifting weight for an hour a day, or as much as you can. raises your metabolic weight about 12% and people can do this easily when shoveling snow outside, like i just did :)
- watch a funny show. two and a half men, anyone?
- sip green tea before meals! it has plant compounds that boost your levels of norepinephrine which is a neurotransmitter that revs your fat burn. (so i should have drank it BEFORE i shoveled)
- add protein to every meal. this can be difficult if you're trying to go vegan/vegetarian like i am...HA! i lied...Vegetable sources of protein are as follows: beans, nuts, and whole grains and they also have fiber!
