Although a sluggish metabolism is rarely the cause for undesired weight gain, a faster metabolism would certainly help you lose weight!  Gimmicks on how to increase your metabolism are plastered all over the internet, but is there really a way to increase your metabolism to help you lose weight?  There is!

It’s not as “exciting” an answer as some of  the gimmicks, but increasing your muscle mass and increasing the frequency and intensity of your exercise are the best, most effective ways to improve your baseline metabolism.

It is true that muscle burns more calories than fat.  So put on more muscle to help burn away the fat!

Of course exercise helps you burn calories, but did you know that you also continue to burn more calories in the time after you exercise than you would have after not exercising?  Exercising is an excellent way to increase your metabolism and your muscle mass to help you improve your overall physique and lose excess body fat!
