You may have heard many different ways to boost your metabolism.

Some of them are true, but some of them (as you likely have found out) are just said to increase metabolism and don’t actually work.

Specifically, any diet pill that says it will increase your metabolism.

Not only are they expensive, but they can also be dangerous if consumed over certain periods of time.

Besides, there are plenty of natural, cheap ways to boost your metabolism without the use of pills!

You may want to boost your metabolism for weight loss, which is fine.2

Even if you aren’t looking to lose weight, however, speeding up your metabolism can actually improve your digestion of food because it won’t be sitting in your body;

it will be quickly used for energy!

1. Build Muscle

Build Muscle

This is one of the best proven ways to boost your metabolism naturally.3

Aside from genetics, body composition plays a major role in what your calorie burning capabilities are.

Having a body with strong healthy muscles requires more energy to maintain than a body composed of mostly fat, thus muscles boost your metabolism significantly.

This will permanently boost your metabolism, much unlike taking pills!

Build up those muscles with strength training routines and maintaining a healthy protein intake for your needs.

Don’t be afraid of looking bulky ladies, it just doesn’t happen!

2. Add Cardio

Add Cardio

Building muscle isn’t the only exercising that needs to be done for a better metabolism!

Studies have shown your calorie burning capabilities are elevated for hours after cardiovascular workouts.2

However, I will note that this is a temporary (although significant!) boost in metabolism, unlike building muscle.

That means your metabolism is revved and you are a calorie-burning machine!

Have you ever noticed feeling ravenous after a tough workout, especially cardio?

That would be due to exercise-induced metabolic increases, meaning your metabolism increase plus what fuel you used for your workout burned through your fuel supply.

So make sure you feed your metabolism with healthy food after your workout to restore lost energy!
