Resting metabolic rate [metabolism] is the energy in calories used when you are awake but in a ‘neutral’ state –not physically active.
Here are 2 Tips for Increasing Your Metabolic Rate:
1 - Strength training: A single strength training session can boost your metabolism for up to 72 hours.
2 - Eat more protein: Protein accelerates metabolic rate by 30% or more; in a study of healthy adults given high calorie diets (40% more than they needed to maintain their body weight) with varied amounts of protein, everyone gained weight, but those on the high protein diet stored excess calories as muscle, while the low protein group stored excess calories as fat.
