If you’re looking to shed some pounds, boosting your metabolism can be a great place to start. Check out this list of metabolism boosting tips and tricks that can help kick-start your weight loss journey and put you on the fast track to reaching your goals.

Heighten your hydration

Stop sipping on sugary drinks and replace your go-to gulps with a tall glass of water. Not only will it lower your daily calorie intake, it can help fill you up before a meal and even speed up your metabolism by 10–30% for almost an hour.

Amp up your workout routine

Doing high-intensity interval training (exercising in short, energetic bursts) can help you burn more fat by increasing your metabolic rate, even after you’ve finished your workout. Not sure how to start? Learn more about adding this technique to your workout routine here.

Pro Tip: Make every rep count and keep the pounds off with Best BCAA Shredded —along with the proper diet and exercise regimen it can help stimulate weight loss, maintain lean muscle, and support performance and recovery. Looking for a non-stimulant weight loss supplement? Check out CLA + Carnitine, which can help promote energy, weight loss and a healthy metabolism without all the jitters.*

Eat less, more often

Instead of eating three big meals a day, prepare small meals and snacks that you can enjoy every few hours. Having multiple small meals and snacks keeps your metabolism working consistently, meaning you’ll burn more calories over the course of a day.

Spice things up

Spicy foods can help kick your metabolism into high gear. They warm your body up and make you sweat, which can help temporarily boost your metabolic rate.

Pro Tip: Don’t like spice? Heat things up with  Shredding Gel — an advanced skin firming and definition cream that can help you improve the appearance of your abs.*

Sleep more, stress less

Make sure you’re getting the recommended amount of sleep each night or taking power naps throughout the day. Being well-rested gives your body the energy it needs to perform basic functions — like burning off calories. And when you’re not catching some Zzz’s, take time to relax and rejuvenate your body through meditation and mindfulness. It helps combat stress hormones that can contribute to fat gain and can curb stress-related cravings.

Pro Tip: After a good night’s sleep, start your day with Roxylean — a once-a-day thermogenic that can help control appetite, increase focus, enhance mood and boost metabolism.*

Power up with Protein

Protein is mostly made up of amino acids, which are harder for your body to break down than fat and carbs. That means you have to burn more calories to get rid of them. Protein can also help you feel more full and help you build and maintain muscle after a workout.

Pro Tip: The best way to add a little extra protein to your diet? BPI’s Best Protein™. It delivers 24g of protein to help promote lean muscle growth, weight loss, and recovery. Looking for a plant-based option? Check out Vegan Protein. It can deliver the same results as whey-based protein with all-natural, vegan-friendly ingredients.*
