    The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn at rest. Try adding some weights into your exercise routine. You don’t need a lot more muscle…a little goes a long way.

    exercise, take a walk, ride a bike,, even climb stairs a few times, gets the blood flowing and energizes you. I work and walk at each 15 minute break, 1 mile each. then grab some fruit.

    Dear Felmeyd,

    As a metabolic specialist, I have found the two best ways to boost your metabolism are to eat every 3-4 hours, and to ensure your nutrient status is adequate.

    Eating regularly helps sustain your metabolism just like gasoline burns in a car. If you go longer periods of time without eating, your metabolism will often slow to conserve energy. Choose two pieces of low fat string cheese as a snack, or a low-sugar yogurt in the mid afternoon for a little lift.

    The best way to boost your metabolism without stimulants or medications is with a proper micro-nutrient status. For example, if you have a low vitamin B12 level, this will undoubtedly affect your energy levels. The whole family of B-vitamins play a role in metabolism of nutrients, and I recommend a quality multivitamin that has the correct, usable forms of these vitamins.
