Increase Your Metabolism With These 8 Tips

One of the key ways to living lean is keeping your metabolism on fiy-ah. On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 8 ways to boost your metabolism.

Your metabolism is your bro to the end when it comes to living lean. And as the saying goes…”bros before…”, actually I don’t think there is a saying for that…#FAIL.

Lets jump right into the 8 ways to boost your metabolism:

#1. Eat!

Your metabolism, your hormones, and your neurotransmitters depends on a regular supply of nutrients. Starving yourself screws all of this up. Your metabolism will be slower than… molasses? … man my creativity game is brutal today.

Eat to boost your metabolism.

#2. Eat the right types of food.

Kick start your metabolism with your first meal of the day by eating foods high in protein and fiber. Protein has a high thermic effect, meaning it requires more calories to digest and absorb the food than carbs or fat, thus boosting your metabolism.

And when I say fiber, I’m NOT referring to a big insulin spiking bowl of Raisin Bran.

I’m talking about nature’s fiber, vegetables and berries. Try my meat and nuts breakfast to see the types of foods I use in my first meal of the day. And don’t forget to add some hot sauce or red pepper flakes. Spicy foods, protein and fiber can all help boost your metabolism.

#3. You’ll love this one. Coffee.

Enjoy your morning and pre-workout coffee. Caffeine has been shown to slightly boost your metabolism. And speaking of workouts…

#4. Focus on Afterburn style resistance training workouts…

….that increase your metabolism for many hours after you leave the gym. I’m talking about multi-joint exercises that recruit a lot of muscles. Squats, deadlifts, presses, and pull ups.

This is why I specifically used these foundation exercises in all the 24 workouts found in my Live Lean Afterburn 12 week workout program. These movements all increase the afterburn effect and boost your metabolism.

#5. Say NO to steady state cardio. Say YES to interval cardio like sprints.

Short, but higher intensity sprints will boost your metabolism like crazy compared to walking on a treadmill. And remember, sprinting is all relative to your fitness level, meaning if you’re a beginner, a short slight jog for 20 sec will elicit a similar metabolic response to you as an all out sprint to someone that is advanced.

#6. Move to the Arctic.

LOL. Seriously, you burn more calories in cold climates because your body works harder to stay warm. But if you’re not willing to move to the Arctic, WIMP, do the next best thing, drink cold water, turn down the thermometer, etc, to boost your metabolism.

#7. Stay active throughout the day.

The little things count. Taking the stairs rather than the escalator, parking further away from grocery store, when you’re walking on the street, walk faster like you’re late for a meeting, and get up from your chair in the office and go see your co-worker rather than emailing them. Finding little ways to increase activity output, all add up to boost your metabolism.

and the final way to boost your metabolism…

#8. Relax.

The stress hormone cortisol,when substantially elevated, can slow down your metabolism. To reduce cortisol, get your 7-8 hours of sleep, meditate, yoga, hang out with friends…it’s all about finding a balance in life.

There are your 8 ways to boost your metabolism.

  1. Excellent! Just discovered your videos and I’m learning so much (just when
    I thought I had it all figured out). I’m almost 47 years old and gained
    25lbs in what seemed like overnight after premature early menopause at 43!
    Battling to get back to base which has been challenging. These videos are
    awesome! The scales are starting to go down. THANK YOU!

  2. #6 – Interesting. As a fellow Canadian I’ve always though our bodies retain
    a bit more fat to insulate our organs. Also, you remind me of a young Chris
    Jericho. Keep the good videos coming.

  3. I have a lot of weight to lose mainly from not eating properly and a
    sedentary lifestyle after I got a job that just seems to zap my energy for
    the past 6years so I crash on the couch immediately after I get home & I
    could never really find my motivation to move until now lol. Anyways, I’m
    working on changing it with committing to move 15 minutes a day (intense
    tabata workouts) and a quickie 5 minute evening workout, both completed 5-6
    days a week with yoga/stretching on Sundays. I have trouble eating like I
    should though. I’m not hungry at all until towards the evening so I eat
    maybe twice a day, mornings and evenings like maybe 3-500 cals per meal max
    800 depending on what I eat & if I go back for a snack. My body is really
    holding onto the weight though & I’m not eating unhealthy food. Someone
    suggested taking 10 cups of food with me and stop counting calories and
    eating on that throughout the day to keep my body from thinking it’s
    starving. Would this be fine? Or should I just force myself to eat? I was
    thinking maybe 3-4 hemp protein & veggie smoothies, in addition to my 2
    meals. My stomach just feels weird or I get really sleepy and sluggish
    after a meal in the middle of the day, no matter what I eat, if its a salad
    or pizza lol but I feel rather energized with my smoothies. I just haven’t
    been doing it long enough or have been consistent with the smoothies to
    notice any weight loss yet. I just got used to not eating like I should I
    suppose to. But I’ll have breakfast and I’m not hungry until maybe 4-5pm so
    what do you suggest? I really want to maximize my efforts and live a
    healthier lifestyle & not just lose temporary weight and I don’t want to
    get discouraged so I thank you in advance for any help and suggestions!

  4. Brad, loving the videos.. All great info. I just began my weight loss
    journey 60 days ago with lean diet and 5 days a week in the gym doing
    weights. I just started taken supplements including pre-work out drinks,
    post workout protein drinks, vitapak supplements as well as Hydroxycut to
    help with fat burn. I am down from 237 to 220 is 60 days. I am really
    interested in your opion/advice to supplement use when trying to burn fat.

    Thanks Mark

  5. Hey Brad. I am a very small, skinny guy so fat loss is not something I need
    to focus on. What should I do differently (especially from a nutritional
    standpoint) to gain more muscle rather than lose weight? I seem to be a
    “hard-gainer” and am not making many gains.

  6. Brad, looks like there’s scientific research debunking the “if you withhold
    calories, your metabolism will slow down” edic. I’m definitely not trying
    to pitch a particular restrictive diet (or worse, anorexia) by ANY means,
    but can you comment on the findings of Dr. Michael Mosley and others,
    summarize nicely here:

    then a follow-up here:
    http://thedianerehmshow.org/shows/2014-01-09/latest-research-intermittent-fasting-0

    Also important to note, research on caloric restriction generally tends to
    investigate health benefits OTHER than weight loss, specifically life
    longevity and neurological benefits, where weight loss happens as a
    side-effect. I believe they’ve actually measured increased metabolism from
    caloric restriction in some of these studies, too. As you are quite
    learned in all things health-related, could you review this line of
    scientific inquiry and add your insights? Thanks!

  7. yes yes and yes. I get so mad when people say “I don’t need breakfast or
    lunch I really just need dinner” UGHHH haha great video and tips! and umm
    HOT SAUCE is in my purse at all times :O)
