Science-Backed Ways to Boost Metabolism

With the new year, many people feel obligated to commit to health-related resolutions that may or may not last throughout the year. Commitments are often overshot and resolutions usually fade by the time the seasons change. Here, we offer you simple resolutions, more like minor lifestyle changes, that are proven ways to boost your metabolism.

Laugh a lot, everyday. Laughter can burn calories. So, watch a comedy, read the cartoons or get with your friends, and laugh it off.girls-laughing_small

Never miss breakfast. Even if you’re not up for it, grab something small to snack on shortly after waking up.
Studies prove a morning meal can jump-start your metabolism.

Enjoy your morning cup of Joe. The caffeine from coffee is absorbed into the bloodstream very quickly, which speeds up your heart rate and may boost your metabolism three hours after drinking.

Intensify your workouts. High-intense, interval workouts can jump start metabolism and burn calories long after your workout is completed.

Drink a cup (or two) of green tea a day. The antioxidant-packed beverage is also proven to speed metabolism.

Add in some daily cardio. 45-minutes of cardio has shown improved metabolic rates continuing for 12 hours following your cardio workout.

Chug some water. You may need more than the recommended eight glasses a day. So, gulp up!

Eat smarter. Pay attention to foods that may benefit your metabolism and reach for them often, such as grapefruit or protein-packed foods.

Spice it up. Add some cayenne pepper to your dinner. The spicy kick in cayenne pepper comes from the main ingredient, Capsaicin, which not only adds a fiery spice to your dish but can also boost metabolism.

Get plenty of sleep. People who do not obtain the necessary hours of sleep tend to have slower metabolisms than those who get proper rest.
