Boost Your Metabolism

Be active – up to 2 hours after a good workout you will continue to burn calories faster than normal as your body starts to recover

Eat small meals throughout the day – small regular meals will keep your metabolism ticking over, avoid you getting hungry and reaching for the biscuit tin

Eat enough protein – eating in general will boost your metabolism, protein boosts it the most

Tone up – lean muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than body fat.  It is also a myth that women will bulk up if they use weights.  We are not designed to become a beefcake!  If you want to change the shape of your body you need to do resistance training

Eat a good breakfast – the most important meal of the day, it does what it says – it breaks the fast.  A combination of carbohydrate and protein is best i.e. scrambled eggs and wholemeal toast
