Losing weight and maintaining good health can be daunting. That's partly because so many factors are involved: not just diet, but also exercise, daily routine, environment, economics, genetics. In recent years, however, one factor, common to us all, has been shown time and again to be the key to fighting fat and staying fit: metabolism.

The set of biological processes that turn food into energy, and energy into vital chemicals and proteins, metabolism directly influences the use of calories and the storage of body fat. Whatever your weight and general health, elevating your metabolism will have solid benefits, particularly in terms of reducing fat and gaining muscle. The even better news is that there are myriad ways to achieve this.

Did you realize, for example, that spicy foods increase metabolism and, consequently, fat burning? Did you know that by drinking about three extra glasses of water a day you could burn more than 17,000 additional calories a year, the equivalent of an extra five pounds? Are you aware that acupuncture can remove energy blockages that slow your metabolism? Did you know that simply having a good laugh can reduce stress hormones, enhance oxygen intake, and improve circulation and digestion?

100 Ways to Supercharge Your Metabolism sets out, clearly and simply, one hundred proven, safe, and effective strategies for raising your metabolism and helping burn off calories and fat. All are grounded in the latest scientific research, and all are practical and easy to incorporate into even the busiest of schedules. Whether you work your way from # 1 to 100, select the tips that fit your lifestyle, or simply try out a few from time to time, you'll learn how to fine-tune your own metabolism and keep it that way for life.

This book was laid out nicely, and an easy read. The suggestions were well thought out and explained. I especially liked the idea of smelling green apple or mint if you're hungry, and to use reflexology on big toe and ball of foot.
