Lets Start By Kicking UpYour Metabolism

One of the best ways to keep your internal fires burning, is to EAT BREAKFAST. I cannot stress that advice enough. When you wake up early in the morning to get ready for work and just do not feel like eating or you're simply not hungry, that could be a sign that your metabolism is too slow. Start by planning a small quick breakfast within 30 minutes after rising. For example; one 6 oz. low or non-fat vanilla yogurt with a small handful of raw almonds, or toast 1 piece of Ezekiel 4:9 bread with 1 tbsp of almond butter (my personal favorite). These are both quick if you are in a hurry and a good start for someone who is not used to eating breakfast. Not eating breakfast causes your body to go into a fat storage mode. When your body becomes more efficient at processing the food you eat, the faster your metabolism becomes, right? Yes!
Think about this, instead of stretching your stomach by eating two to three huge meals throughout the day, or consuming all of your daily calories in one sitting, re-program your body by giving it smaller portions of food more often.
All to often people who want to lose fat begin "dieting" or eating next to nothing. Dieting is one of the worst things you can do if you want to burn body fat. Eating your way to leanness is nothing short of meal frequency and food quality. Eating 5 to 6 times per day keeps your metabolic rate high and maintain that all important muscle tissue. Just as important as eating quality food is keeping hydrated. Drinking water also keeps your metabolism up. Drink a minimum of 8 to 12 eight ounce glasses of water each and every day. Another super important fact for the fat burning process is SLEEP. Research has proven that without 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night your metabolism will slow down to that of a person who lives a sedentary lifestyle.
