How To Speed Up Your Metabolism

At Herbalife we help you understand how your metabolism works and what you can do to speed it up. The great news is the more muscle (or  lean body mass)  you have, the higher your metabolic rate. 

People often complain that they are overweight as their metabolism is not as fast as others who are slimmer, well this is nonsense. Metabolic rate is the number of calories your body uses each day to keep vital processes going and this is determined primarily by how much lean body mass you have.

1 pound of body fat burns 2 calories per day whereas 1 pound of lean mass burns 7 x that amount. Therefore the more lean mass you have = the higher your metabolic rate.

So strengthen and build your muscles up and see your body burning more calories a day to lose weight.
