Moderate exercise and eating healthy will make you feel and look great. It won't work over night, but lifestyle changes will stick versus diets or workout programs. Don't try to change everything at once, it will wear you down and you won't want to continue. Baby steps. Hydrating a hour or two (lemon water is a detox) before exercise will help and deep breathing during your cool-down. Start by short 20 minute walks and switching out simple carbs for complex carbs, in moderation. No junk food (processed too) Add raw fruits and veggies in between meals. Healthy proteins, no red meat while you detox. Watching your glycemic counts on foods, for example, instead of white bread try 100% whole wheat or whole grain, even sprouted grain if your up to it. Epsom salt baths help pull out all the toxins your exercise releases, but don't overdo it, too much magnessium is not a good thing (ask your Dr. if it's okay for you, some people shouldn't). If I'm tempted by a treat, I must eat a fruit or veggie before eating the 'small treat'. I will allow myself two hersheys kisses after my raw carrots. Raw bell peppers are the 'most awesome' to make you feel good and rejuvinate your skin (it's an aquired taste; you will get used to them). Try eating a half of one to a whole one a day and your skin will look great!

to lose weight u need to eat right and have a workout plan 5-6 days a week.u have to want it. ***try this u need to change ur diet. eat six times a day. ea of ur 3 main meals needs to combine a lean protein such as chicken breast ground turkey turkey bacon egg whts also combine that with a complex carb such as a baked potato or sweet potato wild rice brown rice oatmeal or girts. also add fresh fruit and vegies to lunch and dinner. pick fruits low in sugar like pears and berries. if u get canned vegies get ones with low sodium. eat every 3-4 hrs keep ur metablism moving. ***also the most important part is WATER drink at least 64oz. no soda or juice. water will curve ur cravings. u need to hit cardio 3-4 times a week running outside it great workout if u can hit a gym and cardio machine is great at least 30mins*** also add weight/strength training 3 times a week.u can google free weight traning guides anywhere. its not hard to find things for free. also for those wanting sexy hot abs. a nice toned stomach comes from a body with low body fat. so if ur overweight and u do a million crunches or any ab workout you r wasting your time!!! cant see the muscles under fat. low body fat equals=a nice flat toned stomach. ***plan ur meals ahead of time.always have a healthy snack with u so u wont be tempted to eat fast food. also if u wait to late to eat u will get so hungry u will eat the world. make time to work out start out with 30 mins then increase.its ur body treat it right. ur diet alone can help lose weight but working out makes ur body look good. shows muscles and tight skin which is sexy and beautful. stick with it ur body will amaze u!!! to be healthy and look great u need both in ur life. good luck email me if u have further questions

exercising speeds up your metabolism. it not only speeds it up while you exercise, it (exercising) also keeps your metabolism fast all the time so whenever you eat it will be raised naturally and use what you intake more beneficially.

Exercise should speed it up. I've heard that energy drinks do too but those aren't healthy so I wouldn't try that.

Dont trust pills or any of that crap a body cannot loose weight in a superhuman level as in 20 pounds in a week because that would really damadge the body Altering the metabolism can be done by altering eating pattern Eating breakfast everyday can really speed it up because it starts the metabolism extra early in the day and eating small meals throughout the day as in eating 6 small meals a day throughout the day

there are many ways to alleviate this problem: 1. the fitter you are, the more energy your body burns - this energy comes from food. this means your metabolism will work faster to meet your nodies energy needs. 2. imagine your metabolism is a fire. you must stoke the fire with a bit of wood regularly. the most important time to stoke this fire is first thing in the morning when the fire is almost out. 3. by eating smaller meals often (5-6 times per day) as opposed to large meals less often (1-3 times per day) your give your body the chance to work on and break down what its got and prevent a backlog of food that needs broken down and processed. 4. if you still have trouble with bowel movements then you need to look at the possibility that you are intolerant of some of the foodstuffs you eat e.g. gluten, dairy, meat etc. 5. you need to get enough fibre in your diet. if you feel you arent getting enough then try the fire powders you can buy in the chemist.
