None....you don't want to **** around with your metabolism

Trust me, I've spent pounds on wonder pills that are supposed to burn fat, speed up metabolism etc, and that's the only pounds I've lost!

The only thing that speeds my metabolism now is exercise!

Really you just want to find a good balance of how much energy you are taking in vs how much you are burning off. Even when you're being really careful it's easy to do things that slow you down, such as estimating your calories eaten or exercise wrong.

I took some diet pills for a bit, thinking it helped, but I lost at the same pace without them. It's just a waste of money.

Are you taking the p**s

Just looked at your diary, do you ever eat any homemade real food?

If you really want to lose weight and step up your metabolism look at some of the diaries of members who are consistently losing weight. There is lots of help on here from knowledgeable people.

But this does entail eating fresh food and doing some exercise.

I appreciate losing weight is difficult I have struggled all my adult life but you have age on your side get some good habits now and you won't need to worry when you are 40.

There are no magic pills to help you lose weight. The only thing that will work is eating healthy and exercise. There is a multi-billion weight loss industry out there to con you with quick fix gimmicks, because they don't make any money if everyone knows that you can do it for free.

Is your diary accurate? Because you're killing yourself if so.
You don't need pills, you need to take a good hard look at what you are putting in your body already, not add more crap!

Most days you DRASTICALLY undereat (which CREATED your "slow metabolism"), and when you DO eat, it is junk food.
Your body is literally STARVING for nutrition.

Take a multivitamin, drink a protein shake, and eat a well balanced meal, STAT!

Then this is a big problem. If you want to speed up your metabolism, you need to eat more. You are literally killing your metabolism by starving yourself and not eating enough calories. You should be eating at a minimum 1200 to be healthy. I've also noticed you're usually only eating 2 meals a day. 5-6 small meals is whats best for your metabolism, but shoot for at least 3.

No pill will help you unless you make serious changes to your eating habits and put more food in your body.

Ok I appreciate not everyone has the benefit of being taught how to cook etc, but there is a lot of information out there.

Start with a little change every week.

Week one, drink 2 litres of water a day

Week two, eat one piece of fruit a day

Week three, make one meal from scratch

Buy the Michelle Bridges Crunchtime cook book easy recipes that are healthy and easy.

Aim for 1200 calories at least.

You'll need to work on eating more, to get more fuel and nutrition into your body. If you're really out of shape and not used to exercise, it's enough to just start out with walking. You can start out with what you're able to do and just increase as you go. Walking is great exercise because it doesn't put much stress on the body but still burns a good amount of calories.

^^^This!!

Your food diary speaks volumes. You are not eating properly or enough. Now I am not perfect but I do eat mostly fresh homemade food. I learned to cook when I had my little boy as I didn't want to feed him junk out of a jar and it was the best thing I ever did. The trick is to take it slowly. Start with having breakfast everyday as this "kick-starts" your metabolism. I love eggs for breakfast and just poach/dry fry/scramble them with a bit of toast and then take some fruit to work for a mid morning snack. Learn how to make up a nice salad with a good serving of protein. The Food Doctor books helped me to understand what I should be eating at each meal/snack and the proportions. Aim to eat 3 meals and 2/3 snacks and eat at least 1200-1300 cals per day.

Good luck!

When I started mfp my main goal was not to lose weight but to fix my metabolism, after years of dieting incorrectly, (sometimes taking pills, sometimes starving myself) and sitting at a desk job all day my metabolism was so slow it was running in reverse.
I researched a little and while trying to figure out how to get my metabolism started in the morning I discovered a few things.

1. Exercise is the best kickstart to your metabolism...and it doesn't take much, just a couple minutes of jumping jacks, running in place or any activity that will increase your heart rate will wake your metabolism up.

2. Eat when you wake up...this one is difficult for me but I noticed a more consistent drop on weight when I began to follow this rule, (try to eat some form of protein, your body burns through it slower causing the metabolism to work longer)

3. There are some foods that can help, your metabolism likes spice, hot sauce, ceyenne pepper, cinnamon, chili powder.

4. Keep giving your metabolism a burst throughout the day by doing little sessions of exercises ...every time I would go to the bathroom at work I would do 20 squats, 20 incline push ups, and 20 jumping jacks ...everytime I would refill my water bottle I woulc run (as fast as I could) up three flights of stairs, also try to eat a little something every 2 to 3 hours through the day...

I tried all of these at the same time so I can't pin point which one worked best for me, but I've lost over 80 pounds without taking any pills and my energy level has definately improved.

Hope this helps, good luck! :)

pills will just mess up your metabolism so when you stop taking them you will gain weight back - eat healthy clean food and exercise - job done :)

metabolism pills are great at making money for the metabolism pill industry.

that's all they do though.

I gave up smoking 3 months ago after 13 years . In that time I have put a stone (14lbs) in weight. I didn't substitute smoking with eating, but I have heard that your motabalism slows down when u quit. I work n an office 9 hours a day so excercise is not easy, but what can I do on a daily basis to speed up motabalism for the busy woman life?

Take the info provided in the forums with a grain of salt. A lot of people here are knowledgeable, but just as many don’t know their @ss from a hole in the wall, but still spout off arbitrary advice at every opportunity!

You're young and don't have a ton of weight to lose. You can absolutely do this the right way without messing up your body by following random (fad) diets or pills....just be patient and be willing to put the work and effort into establishing a healthy lifestyle that you can maintain.

I compete in NPC Women's Fitness and Figure competitions and a lot of competitors including I take CLA's. You can get them in a gel pill form or liquid. Its all natural and helps in fat loss. But the only way your gonna see a big difference in taking it is if your diet is pretty clean and you do some sort of excise.
