6. Make sure you’re not starving yourself
If intermittent cheat meals fail to give your metabolism a boost, it’s usually a sign you should increase your intake. If your body feels like it’s chronically underfed, it’ll naturally try to reduce metabolism speed, and you’ll just end up sabotaging your efforts. Instead, try one or two weeks of eating the calories you need every day, which will allow a suppressed metabolism to recover.
Note: ‘Normal’ eating means about an extra 500 calories a day, or one additional healthy meal, not a daily trip to the drive-thru. So make sure those extra calories are clean, because a pile of sodium, sugar, and fat won’t make your body look any better, even if you have a slightly faster metabolism.
