We all would love to lose those extra pounds and feel good about ourselves. But sadly, not everyone is able to do it at a fast pace and often this comes down to having a slow metabolic rate. Luckily, all of you swept in to save the day (like always!) and sent in your suggestions on how to increase that metabolic rate. Keep scrolling to read the recommendations by our Mashion followers!
Water…And More Water
According to studies, drinking 17 ounces (0.5 liters) of water increases resting metabolism by 10–30% for about an hour! It detoxes your body of waste and acts as an appetite suppressant. No wonder so many of you recommend this!
