Kick Your Metabolism Into High Gear!

The Dos and Don'ts of Efficient Fat-Burning


  • I don't mean to be picky but isn't 30 percent of 20 pounds SIX pounds of muscle? - 11/19/2015 9:07:50 PM
    I believe that health comes with healthy food. I couldnít believe my eyes when I saw the prices for that value. I believe Iíve found the solution here - 7/31/2015 9:13:29 PM
  • This is mostly good information but suggesting that "starvation mode" is real always jars me. There's no good research to support this position; creating a calorie deficit will always cause weight loss even if not in a healthful way. - 5/28/2015 1:26:44 PM
  • The answer to WLIBERTY's question is NO, questions are not answered here. The comment information specifically states "Please do not ask questions here. If you have questions, please post them on the Message Boards in order to get a response." So try that if you have questions. - 7/25/2014 5:00:00 AM
    I have started yoga and journaling my fitness workouts. It helps me to see that I'm sticking to my goals. - 3/27/2013 5:25:07 PM
  • I have a question. When I read the comments on this article and others I often see questions. I never see answers. Are the questions answered? If so where? - 10/13/2012 5:59:49 PM
    I think the mental factor is what gets me everytime! I need to reduce the stress and think positively - 6/9/2012 3:23:26 PM

  • Adding this to my favorites! It is accurate, concise, and useful - I'll refer to it over and over again. THANKS for a great article. - 1/8/2011 3:25:42 PM
  • i have a question i was wondering about with this article... i want to know if sleeping in through breakfast will hurt my metabolism, because it says don't skip meals but at the same time it says get shut eye so i want to know if what i'm doing is hurting my metabolism and if i should get up early and eat breakfast instead of sleeping in? - 8/16/2010 11:53:34 PM
  • This is a really great summary of all the things we do without considering. I am a living example that many of these things will have big impacts. I have a decent metabolism, but even so senior clinical year saw me put on 20 pounds. I was working 6-7 days a week with 17 hour days not unheard of. I routinely got 3-5 hours of sleep and got called in at weird hours. I also would often have long stretches between meals. I pretty much lived your "don't"s :( - 8/16/2010 9:02:42 AM
  • This is a great reminder of many things I've already read on SP. It's great to have them all listed like this for easy referral. I've often unknowingly sabotaged my own weight-loss efforts in the past without knowing it. Information is power. Thx. - 8/16/2010 4:23:11 AM
  • Thanks for putting these tips all in one place! Just what I was looking for! Another couple tips I've picked up that are also supposed to help the metabolism:

    Focus on eating protein, fiber, and water; and not eating a lot of sugar, starch, and alcohol.
    Don't lose weight too fast. A pound a week is a good amount, or even less. - 6/11/2010 1:07:04 PM
    Thank you for this information. It is a kick in the seat of my pants that I needed. I am guilty of skipping meals and being short on sleep most of the week. Then I fit the criteria of not getting some excersise in each day. i've got some work to do and now I have a pattern to establish.

    Thanks again. - 2/21/2010 10:00:02 AM
  • I enjoyed this article and found it very helpful. I was impressed with Dean Anderson and how he took control of his life. I would like to know how I could go about receiving training to be a lifestyle and weight management consultant . I'm working on reaching my goal weight but I know that by educating myself in this area, I can improve my health. I'd like to take control and continue to make healthy choices in my own life and to help others. Thanks - 1/30/2010 9:31:24 AM
