At the beginning of the year, 2013 statistics reported ‘losing weight’ as the top resolution for the year. Although most have hypothesized that many will not make it to the beginning of February, there are simple habits you can begin integrating on the daily to get your weight down and boost your metabolism. Here are 5 ways to do just that.

1. Eat Breakfast

Sounds cliche, but embrace it. Breaking the fast that happens after you sleep at night is the way to kickstart your day and jolt your metabolism where it needs to be. Think of this as the foundation for getting your metabolism started for the day.

Let me also just add that a 1,000 calorie breakfast is not what we’re talking here. Oatmeal, fruit, or anything of the like should be on the radar. Baby steps if this is a habit you’re trying to make stick.

2. Eat 6 meals per day

Before you gag, let me explain. This consists of 3 larger, portioned meals and 3 snacks. Snacks should include things are high in fiber, like granola, a piece of fruit or even a fiber bar. Fiber will cause you to feel full longer.

The object of 6 meals is to eat every 3 to 4 hours each day.

3. Give your workout a boost

Incorporating higher levels of cardio into your workout regimen can do tremendous wonders for your metabolism. Cardio gets your heart rate up, so you’ll burn off calories even after your workout is over. Need an idea? Try a Spin class or Zumba.

4. Drink plenty of (cold) water

Again, sounds so cliche but the adult body is made up of 70% water. To boost your metabolism, drink ice cold water to give the body a little jolt, which makes the body work to regulate the temperature, working to your advantage.

5. Stay active

Throughout the day, it’s easy to get comfortable behind a desk all day. Get up and walk around. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Even challenge yourself to take 2 steps at a time instead of 1. It’s important to keep the body moving throughout the day.
