Dramatically increase metabolism in 30 minutes a week.

Metabolism has a few definitions depending on who you ask, for the purpose of this post it means the amount of energy your body burns throughout the day, equating in how many calories you burn. I've used this little trick to shed 7 pounds and drop 1.2% body fat in a week, without changing anything about my diet or work outs.

The Hack

Monday and Thursday morning (the days are not what matters, just do this twice a week. Doing more then this is treading in uncharted waters.) consume a little caffeine, 1/4 to 1/2 of a 5 hour energy will do just fine, don't eat anything.

Go for a 15 minute run. Warm up for 5 minutes then start interval running. Interval training consist of sprinting and walking. Sprint for 10 seconds, walk for 30. Keep this up the entire 10 minutes. Upon returning home do a little stretching to reduce any soreness.

If you pair this off with a protein rich breakfast, I eat eggs and wheat toast, your metabolism will be super charged for the rest of the day. Check out my post on Grapefruit to enhance the effects of the caffeine and get an even bigger edge.

Good luck and enjoy the results.
