  1. Train with Weights Regularly


Resistance training induces muscle damage, which can be necessary for muscle growth to happen. A study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise learned that subjects who trained frequently for a few months experienced a 7 percent surge in their resting rate of metabolism. [1] But you need not wait that long to find out a boost in your metabolism: A strenuous bout of strength training has been shown to elevate fat burning capacity by as much as 11-12 percent for 2 hours’ post-workout, and in some cases 9 percent for approximately 15 hours’ post-workout. [2]

To fully take advantage of the benefits of weight lifting, make sure your workout concentrates on all the major skeletal-muscle groups with multipoint movements and multiple sets, and they often target the 8-12-repetition range, and in some cases the 12-20 range sometimes.

  1. Choose High-Intensity Exercise


The form of exercise you end up picking also has an important impact on your rate of metabolism. After completing a bout of high-intensity exercise—think intervals or circuit-style weight training—your oxygen consumption (sometimes termed as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption, or EPOC), is elevated in an effort to replenish substrates consumed during exercise. [3,4]. This improvement in EPOC elevates energy expenditure, potentially for about 24-48 hours, which further impacts your rate of metabolism long after your session ends.


  1. Eat Enough Protein

Consuming dietary protein directly triggers muscle growth and repair. To maximize protein’s muscle-building response, it is vital that you’re not only eating enough, but you are eating it frequently throughout your entire day. Remember, the quantity of muscle mass you’ve impacts your rate of metabolism; to increase your metabolism, it seems sensible to prioritize protein appropriately during the day.

In addition to eating sufficient protein each and every meal, it’s advantageous to spread your protein in equal amounts across multiple meals instead of consuming it in mere 1-2 large meals and several protein-poor meals. [5] To maximally stimulate the pc muscle growth and repair response from protein, you need to meet the absolute minimum threshold every few hours, which for many of us is 25-35 grams of high-quality protein.

Eat more protein


  1. Stop Dieting Year Round

Long-term dieting can adversely impact your metabolism, because doing so causes the body to begin conserving energy, which then depresses your metabolism. It’s been shown that long-term dieting negatively effects your total daily energy expenditure by reducing the quantity of calories you burn on a daily basis. [6] For every week you diet, try to spend at the very least as many weeks off your diet plan. This will help provide adequate time to your metabolism to get restored to pre-diet levels and enable ample time to increase muscle tissue. Ideally, the longer the different options are away from a calorie deficit, the greater the impact you have on muscular mass, and ultimately your metabolism.
