It seems like everyone is looking for the next “easy ” diet.  Unfortunately, the only way to lose weight is to eat right and exercise!  I do have a few tips to help you boost your metabolism that are very simple!

1.  Start with a good breakfast.  I know, you aren’t the breakfast type, but it’s important as you have been fasting for hours!

2.  Eat 5 to 6 small meals a day.  Everyone has heard that before, but it keeps your blood sugars level and keeps your body nourished on a consistent basis.

3.   Drink cold water.   Yes, you do need to drink water, half of your body weight in ounces as a matter of fact!  Drinking it cold actually forces the body to warm up to keep your internal body temperature at a nice comfy 98.7 degrees, and that burns calories!

4.  Work at a desk?  Get up every couple of hours and stretch then take a walk!  Around your building, up and down a flight of stairs, anything to get your blood flowing!

5.  Add an exercise program!  Even if you just take a walk every day for 20 minutes at a pace that is quick and sustained, it WILL help!

6.  Don’t eat foods that are pre-made (even something like Lean Quisine), don’t eat sugar, toss the soda, and give up fried foods. Number 6 seems the hardest, but eating healthy will give you more energy to take that walk around the block!
