However, there are certain healthy habits that you can adopt that will get your metabolism running as efficiently as possible. These include having breakfast every morning, keeping your body fueled with healthy snacks and foods every 3-4 hours, and including exercise in your daily routine. Increasing muscle mass by doing strength-training and staying hydrated are also important for keeping your metabolism working at its peak. If you’re trying to lose weight, remember that decreasing your calories too drastically can actually cause your metabolism to slow down. The healthiest path towards weight loss is via exercise and a healthy diet. Consider meeting with a Registered Dietitian to learn more about healthy eating and weight loss.
