  1. Get off that couch, turn that television off and get out there and exercise for at least 30 minutes per day 6 days a week.  Oxygen is the most important component in cell metabolism and basically when you exercise you are providing lots of good oxygen to your lungs and heart and this is wonderful as more oxygen means a higher metabolism, more weight loss, and more calories burned.
  2. picture of people eating breakfastEat a wonderful and delicious breakfast.  Many uninformed people believe that by skipping breakfast they will lose weight when in actuality they are gaining more weight by doing this.  When you skip meal your body begins to think that it is starving so it goes into hibernation mode which automatically slows down your metabolism to conserve energy and thus you lose no weight but gain it.  A healthy and nutritious breakfast will keep your metabolism burning at its optimal rate and keep your energy up for a longer period of time.  Try to eat a breakfast high in complex carbohydrates like whole grain cereals with milk or yoghurt and fruit as this will give you sustained energy throughout the day and also burn those unwanted calories away.

Try to have a set time to go to sleep and try not to use the television to fall asleep as this will actually keep you up longer than you wanted too and cause you to go to sleep later and later each night.  Your metabolism needs time to rest and renew itself too.

By following these simple suggestions you will be able to boost your energy and metabolism and before you know it fatigue and lack of motivation will be a thing of the past and you will also lose weight as well.
