But eat well. Studies show that lean proteins aid in digestion and build muscle, while high-fiber fruits and vegetables and complex carbohydrates jog your metabolism more than simple carbs and fats do.
And eat regularly. Digestion raises metabolism, but you have to eat in order to digest, which is why Gennari and many nutritionists recommend eating a small meal every three or four hours.
Don’t take that pill. There’s no pill, powder, or magic juice that is going to raise your metabolism enough to be worth the insane heart rate, sky-rocketing blood pressure, and feeling of wanting to crawl out of your skin that come along with it.
Be patient. All of these processes are complicated. They won’t change over a day, a week, or even a month. It may take three months or more for you to notice a change in your metabolism. Give your body time to adjust.
