How to speed up metabolism and lose weight

Updated: Jun 25, 2022

Weight loss can be a daunting task, especially for the elderly. No matter which diet you choose, you are constantly given up on food, counting calories, which causes a great need for food. But you can only do everything with a lot of will.

Which doesn't help much with a slow metabolism.

Metabolism is a complex series of intracellular chemical reactions that convert the calories we eat into the energy our body needs to breathe, maintain organ function, and generally survive.

There are ways to your daily routine that can speed up your metabolism and prevent weight gain naturally.

1. Physical activity

  • take at least 8500 steps a day

  • mix exercises like high-intensity training with strength training.

2. Diet

  • drink water

  • increase protein intake

  • try not to skip a meal

3. Sleep

  • sleep at least 7 hours a night

But, is there any help in speeding up metabolism?

Scientists have discovered a new protein enzyme, which is called AMP-activated protein kinase, or AMPk for short. This enzyme, AMPk is a master regulator of metabolism


With age, the production of AMPk in the body decreases, which often leads in gain weight.

According to Dr. Barry Sears, activating AMPk is the secret to a longer and better life. It can speed slow metabolism and help with cardiovascular health. It would be great to know a way how to ¨turn on¨ your metabolism whenever you want.

When AMPk is high your fat-burning metabolism increases, whether you are 50 or 80 years old.

Where do we find this miracle enzyme?

  • Berberine is a bioactive compound extracted from several plants. One of the main benefits is to activate AMPk. It reduces body weight and also causes significant improvement in glucose intolerance.

  • Cinnamon Bark regulates the enzyme AMPk to prevent cells from being filled with fat. It also helps support healthy insulin levels.

  • Alpha-lipoic acid increases insulin sensitivity by activating AMPk in skeletal muscle.
