How to Increase Your Metabolic Rate

Someone ask me today, how she can increase her metabolic rate. I thought some readers might have the same question.

Question: Can we do anything to increase the metabolic rate ?

Answer: Hi Diane,

If you do strength training exercise, you will strengthen & build your muscles. Those muscles will increase your metabolic rate, even when you stop exercising. That's why in my book, I recommend simple strength training exercises. These exercises will strengthen your muscles but will not make you look bulky.

Stay healthy!
