If you struggle with stubborn weight gain that just won’t budge, poor energy levels, and general fatigue, your metabolism might be running a little slower than it should…

But what exactly is your “metabolism”? And how can you speed it up to reach your weight loss goals?

In this article, we’ll explore what your metabolism is and dive into the latest science-backed ways to speed it up through diet, supplements, and lifestyle changes.

 

What is your metabolism?

Metabolism is the process your body uses to turn the food you eat into energy for all of your physiological and cellular processes.

Your metabolism consists of two main parts known as catabolism, which breaks down food for energy, and anabolism which uses energy to build and repair your body.

Your Basic Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories your body needs to function while it’s at rest. Many things can affect your BMR such as age, gender, muscle mass, genetics, and more.

When you have a higher metabolic rate, it means your body needs more calories in order to maintain its basic functions, making it easier to lose or maintain a healthy weight.

A slower metabolism can make it challenging to achieve sustained weight loss and maintain steady energy levels. Fortunately, with the right knowledge and strategies, most people can boost their metabolism and burn more calories throughout the day! (1)

Let’s take a look at some of the strategies you can use to boost your metabolism:

 

Build muscle mass with resistance training

Cardio is often what most people focus on when trying to lose weight, but the true secret to beating plateaus and seeing sustainable weight loss results comes from building muscle mass with resistance training.

This is because muscle mass burns significantly more calories than fat while your body is at rest, boosting your metabolism. Muscle also supports weight loss in other ways by improving insulin sensitivity, which decreases the amount of glucose your body turns into fat.

Research shows that just a few months of resistance training 3 times per week significantly increases metabolic rate. (2)

 

Stay hydrated

Did you know that something as simple as drinking more water can help boost your metabolism

This is because water increases your body's resting energy expenditure, meaning you burn more calories even when you're not active. This effect is known as water-induced thermogenesis. For example, studies have shown that drinking 500 ml of water can temporarily increase metabolic rate by 24-30% for about an hour! (3)

It’s important to note that you can drink too much water though, so try to keep your intake at a maximum of 3 litres per day if you’re a woman and 3.5 litres per day if you’re a man.

 

Increase your protein intake

Not only does protein intake help to provide the amino acids needed to build more muscle mass, but the process of digesting protein actually burns calories much more than the other macronutrients like carbs and fats.

Some research shows that increasing your protein intake can temporarily increase your metabolic rate by up to 15-30%. (4)

 

Eat mineral-rich foods

Minerals like selenium, iron, iodine, and zinc are essential for the optimal functioning of the thyroid gland, which plays a crucial role in your body’s metabolic rate. (5)

Foods rich in these minerals include:

  • Brazil nuts
  • Seeds
  • Seafood and seaweed
  • Legumes
  • Animal protein

 

Drink green tea

Drinking green tea can help to boost your metabolism in two ways, thanks to the presence of powerful antioxidants and some caffeine.

In particular, green tea is rich in a compound called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which can help to increase fat oxidation. This means that your body can burn fat more efficiently for energy.

The combination of both EGCG and caffeine can help to increase overall thermogenesis, the process by which your body generates heat and burns calories, with research showing that green tea consumption can increase your energy expenditure by 4-8%! (6)
