== == == == * Eat a meal about every 3 waking hours (5 or 6 meals per day). You will not be eating more food; you will simply be spreading it throughout the day. Each of those 5 or 6 feedings should contain at least 15 grams of unprocessed protein (from natural sources) for a female or at least 20 grams per feeding for a male. Drink plenty of water. Increase your intake daily until you are consuming at least 3 quarts daily--and one gallon daily would be better. Begin two kinds of exercise, namerly cardio and strength training. To increase metabolism to the maximum you should do both cardio and strength training. * Eat just a little about every two or three hours. Tell yourself that you do not have to wait very long before you get to eat again. By the second or third day or sooner, your appetite will shrink. Make everything you eat count. Don't eat sugar or diet products. Use olive oil when cooking, no fried or fast food and try some low-impact exercise, like walking or swimming and be committed to getting healthy. The number one thing I know is that you need to eat frequent smaller meals. It is key to your success. * Just a side note...Cutting back on what you eat is one thing. Putting your body into an actual starvation mode is another. This will actually cause it to begin storing fat. Even though you may be doing it to lose weight, your body only sees it for what it is, food deprivation. Storing fat is the natural defense against starvation.

The faster your metabolism, the more you can eat without gaining weight. So, in order to prevent obesity, you need to keep your metabolism going as fast as possible. You can increase your metabolism by exercising, eating regularly and by avoiding starvation & fad diets. You need to eat healthy, natural foods as well as possible, as many processed foods may contain ingredients that can disturb the balance in your endocrine system.
