There is another option when it comes to losing weight. You can take the long term option where you lose weight slowly, gradually and healthily. There are several ways that can you can burn calories quicker and boost your metabolic health.

Drink Green Tea
A recent study compared the metabolic effect of green tea with that of a placebo; research found that people who drink green tea burned about 70 extra calories in a 24 hour period. 70 calories a day can add up to about 7.5 pounds of fat each year, this is a fair amount for the average person. Researchers believe that it is the anti-oxidants that are found in green tea that contribute to extra calorie burning effect and metabolic boost that is produced by green tea.

Try to avoid calories in glass.
The body does not register liquid calories in the same way it registers calories from solid food. You need to monitor your intake of juice, coffee, soda, drinks and spirits like wine. If you consume these beverages on a regular basis or each day you will consume an extra 800 odd calories so this will promote weight gain, which is counterproductive to losing weight.

Start lifting weights to build lean muscle.
The more lean muscle that you have, the more calories that you will burn naturally. This in turn will promote weight loss. Strength training workouts can vary from basic body weight exercise, such as push ups, and body weight squats to heavy dumbbell and barbell workouts that provide more intensity to your workouts.

Aim to do some type of strength training workout 3 or 4 times a week to build more muscle and functional strength. These workouts can be done at home, wherever suits your lifestyle best.

Reduce salt intake from your diet.
One of the main issues with sodium is that is contributes to water retention, this will make you look and feel bloated. The daily value suggests consuming no more than 2,400 milligrams of sodium daily.

Try to eat spicy food more in your diet.
Hot peppers can boost your metabolism this is according to a study conducted by a respectful university in Canada.There is a compound called capsaicin found in jalapeno and cayenne peppers, this will increase your body's release of stress hormones such as adrenaline which can speed up your metabolism and burn more calories. Try spicing up your stir fried vegetables, eat low calorie or chili salsa and watch those excess pounds come of faster.

Go for an evening walk
Exercise is good for you no matter what time of day. However when you go for a walk or do some other kind of exercise in the evening it is more beneficial because the metabolism slows down in the evening so exercise can help boost your metabolic health.

Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner will increase your metabolic rate and keep it elevated for a further 2 hours even after you stop exercising. This means that if you go for an evening walk or do some other form of exercise after your evening meal, then this exercise will burn off a few of the calories that came from the meal and reduce the likely hood of weight gain.

Eat every meal. Skipping a meal does not help you lose weight quicker. If you skip meals, this will slow down your metabolic health and you are more likely to over eat at your next meal, thus increasing the likely hood of weight gain.
