 Here are 3 easy ways you can increase your metabolism for more effective weight loss results.

1. Calorie counting - First determine the number of calories you should be consuming in a day for your age, gender and activity level. While counting calories can be tedious, it has been proven effective.  Keep a food journal and write out everything you eat including the calories. In the beginning it might take a while to figure out the calories in everything but after a few weeks, you will be able to eyeball it and come up with a fairly accurate estimate.

2. Eat more often - This might seem contrary to most diets that you've followed, but it's true! Eating more often doesn't mean eating more.  Divide your calories between 6 - 8 meals a day.

3. Drink plenty of water - We need water for our bodies to carry out all it's complex processes. Aim for at least 6 - 8 glasses of water per day and more if you're active.
