10 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

10 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

Our metabolism is all the chemical processes that happen in our body that help to keep us alive and living and keeps our organs functioning normally, such as breathing and digesting food. These chemical processes require energy and this is called the basal metabolic rate (BMR).

It is our metabolic rate which determines the amount of calories we burn. Having a higher metabolic rate means that we are burning more calories - even at rest - which makes it easier for us to lose weight and also keep it off.

Our size, gender, genetics, and age play a part in our metabolic rate. However, as the infographic above from Health Central shows there are ways that we can control it and even maybe increase our metabolic rate. This includes:

- Eating Breakfast

- Regularly Drinking Water

- Building More Muscle

- Getting Sufficient Sleep

What are your favourite ways and tips for increasing your metabolic rate?
