How to Increase Your Metabolism to Lose Weight

Metabolism is how your body burns calories from foods and drinks for energy to function. Increasing your metabolic rate will increase the amount of calories burned, resulting in a decrease in calories that are converted to body fat and eventual weight gain.

Increasing your metabolism happens in several ways including, eating a high protein and fiber diet that require more energy to digest; eating more often say, every 2 to 3 hours to prevent your body from slowing down metabolism; weight bearing exercise that causes minor tear in the muscles requiring energy to repair.

During these activities your body burns more calories leaving fewer calories that can be converted to body fat. And needless to say, when fat accumulates at a slower rate in your body you will begin to lose weight.
