The faster your metabolism, the faster your body burns fat. It's that easy!

1. Ditch the drink

If you’re serious about speeding up your metabolism then it’s important to cut down on your alcohol intake- no ifs ands or buts!

Prepare to say goodbye to your nightly glass of wine and rejoice in your new shape!

So be sure to include salmon and yoghurt in your diet!

3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

If you make it a mission to drink at least two litres of water a day, your body will be in tip top form and you’ll shed those pesky lbs even quicker!

Think of your body as a machine which needs certain fuel to function properly- water is one of them!

4. Snack, snack, snack!

Starving yourself or forcing yourself to go long periods of time without food will have a disastrous effect on your metabolic system.

Fill up on high-protein snacks and do it every time your stomach growls!

5. Exercise outside as often as possible

Breaking a sweat in the cold does wonders for your metabolism.

Your body responds to the drop in temperature and increases it ability to burn fat!
