Lightbulb Increase In Metabolism?!

Hey guys! I read a few things in a magazine about how to increase your metabolism and this is what it said to do:
1. Eat a snack within 30 minutes of working out
(maybe it will keep your muscles active?)
2. Drink Green Tea

Are those things logical? Will they really increase my metabolism?
Thanks a lot

Re: Increase In Metabolism?!

I read that hot peppers don't do anything. People think that they sweat when they eat them so they loose some calories but i guess the amount you lose is so minimal that it doesn't matter. bummer.

Re: Increase In Metabolism?!

I just dont think you'll get much increase in metabolism by certain foods or supplements(green tea).Even the Mitochondria nutrients (CO-Q10,L-CARNITINE,LIPOIC ACID)will have little affect.High intensity cardio is the only thing that revs my body like nothing else.(cardio equiptment,raquetball,basketball,sprints ,etc.) harry !

Re: Increase In Metabolism?!

The effect might be there but it is very slight. THe BIG metabolic boosts come form most of the substances that are already banned with amphetamine leading the pack, then phenyl propanolamine hydrochlaride and the weaker ephedrine and pseudoephedirine all of which raise your blood pressure and have therefore caused strokes ion susceptible people.

Coffee and tea (green or black) are probably the best you can do now safely and legally and their caffeine will help speed the metabolism...a LITTLE and for a LITTLE while!

A snack or no snack won't do anything noticeable for your metabolism...unless it's a cup of coffee.

I'm not sure where you read that but here is what I pulled off of ediets website and the study is from canada plus I have read it in many books:

Hot Peppers! Eating hot peppers can speed up your metabolism and cool your cravings, researchers at Laval University in Canada found. Here's why: capsaicin (a chemical found in jalapeño and cayenne peppers) temporarily stimulates your body to release more stress hormones, which speeds up your metabolism and causes you to burn more calories. They also aids in digestion....Lisa

Re: Increase In Metabolism?!

I just started to drink this green tea from herba sway, and it's equal to 5-10 cups of tea for every serving. I lost 3 pounds out of no where! And I haven't even been exercising like I usually do, AND my diet hasn't been so great and I've been eating higher fat food than usual lately(not real bad or anything but it's SOOO wierd cause when I eat less I weigh more). I know it's hard to believe and I guess it's from the green tea, , I DUNNO, lol.
