Don’t we all just want quicker metabolisms so we could eat more and not gain weight as quickly?! That’s the DREAM.
And because our bodies’ metabolism will slow down as we age, we therefore can’t burn the food we eat at the same rate which we eat or exercise at say, when we were 20 compared to when we’re 28. Also, if we maintain sedentary lifestyles (that is, we spend most of our time at work or school sitting at a desk) regular exercise is necessary to get our metabolism going quicker.
We have some tips that will get your metabolism up to speed, and yes, it does involve some exercise.
1. Exercise with intervals
It’s hard to workout when you’ve got a busy schedule. But interval exercise can help you torch more calories in a short period of time and boost your metabolism throughout the day.
An easy place to start is on the treadmill – brisk walk at a speed of 6.0 before 2 minutes before sprinting at 8.0 for another 2, and keep repeating that for 30 minutes. You will feel the burn and notice that the weight comes off quicker!
