HOW TO: increase your metabolism for a healthier lifestyle


Metabolism refers to how quickly a body burns calories to produce energy. Several factors influence metabolisms, such as age, gender, body fat, muscle mass, activity level, and genetics.


You can boost your metabolism naturally by:


  • Having regular meals: Metabolism can be balanced by eating at regular times. So regularity is the key to a balanced metabolism.
  • Taking in enough calories: To lose weight, some people skip meals. It can, however, negatively affect metabolism.
  • Drinking green tea: Some studies indicate that green tea extract may promote fat metabolism, which is a good alternative to sugary juices.
  • Performing resistance exercises: Increasing metabolism may be possible if you build muscle through strength training, as muscles have a high metabolic rate.
  • Staying hydrated: It is essential to stay hydrated. A person's metabolism depends on water, and it may help them lose weight.
  • Reducing stress: Hormone levels are affected by stress, and it can increase cortisol production, which regulates appetite. So decreasing stress factors are necessary for a balanced metabolism.
  • Maintaining a healthy sleep schedule: Too little sleep triggers the release of ghrelin, a hormone that can make a person feel hungry. Also, it releases less leptin, a hormone that helps people feel full. Balance in these hormones can be achieved by getting enough sleep.
  • Consuming enough B vitamins: Metabolic rate is regulated by B vitamins. Take B vitamins enriched foods, including banana, orange juice, whole-grain foods, etc.


Making a healthy lifestyle and dietary changes can increase metabolism.

Boosting metabolism can be done in several ways, including reducing stress, taking healthy meals, and by regularly exercising. However, before making any changes to an exercise regimen or diet, it is always best to consult a doctor.
