Natural Metabolism Boosters: How To Speed Up Your Metabolism Naturally



Ever wondered why some of your girlfriends  can indulge in those afternoon biccies and not put on a kilo, while others only glance at a pint of ice cream and feel their waistbands tighten?

Well, it often boils down to our metabolism — that magical little engine that burns our daily food intake  for energy.

So, if you're keen to rev up your body's engine, look no further. We’re diving into the best natural metabolism boosters, so you can keep enjoying that cheeky evening wine or ice cream without the guilt!

What Exactly Is Your Metabolism?

Simply put, metabolism is your body's way of converting the food you eat into the energy it needs to function – from pumping your blood to taking a brisk walk. Your basal metabolic rate, or BMR, is the pace at which this happens. Factors like age, muscle mass, and yes, even genetics, play their part. But if you're battling a slow metabolism don't fret! There are ways to stoke that fire naturally.

Top Natural Metabolism-Booster Foods — Hacking Your Intake



Let’s get into the meat of things. If you’re keen to give your slower metabolism a bit of a nudge without resorting to fancy pills, potions, or ultra-processed foods, nature’s got your back. Here’s a rundown of some top-notch, nutrient-dense foods that are natural metabolism boosters.

Weight gain can't be blamed entirely on a sluggish metabolism, however, when it comes to health issues such as hypothyroidism, activity level and overall caloric consumption represent a large part of the puzzle. These nutritious foods can help you to even the playing field.

From the morning cuppa to the spice rack, these everyday heroes will soon become your metabolism's new best pals.

Green Tea


Pop the kettle on and brew yourself a cup of green tea. Studies published by Physiology & Behavior show this leafy wonder can spike your metabolic rate for a few hours, all thanks to its mighty mix of caffeine and catechins.


Speaking of caffeine, it’s the secret zinger in your morning coffee that wakes up your brain and your body’s energy use. It gives your central nervous system a nudge, helping you burn more calories even when you've got your feet up and a cocktail in hand.

Chili Peppers

Here’s one for the spicy food lovers! Chilli peppers contain capsaicin, a fiery compound that can turbo-charge your metabolism.

The capsaicin in chilli peppers can boost metabolism by increasing energy expenditure and fat oxidation. It activates TRPV1 receptors, which help in breaking down fats and increasing metabolic rate, making it a potent natural metabolism booster and powerful weight loss ally. 

Protein-Rich Foods

Ever feel fuller for longer after a steak compared to after a bowl of chips? It's no coincidence. That's protein at work. Eating it causes your body to burn extra calories by cranking up your metabolic rate, thanks to the thermic effect of food.

A high protein intake has been shown to boost metabolism and increase the amount of calories burned by about 80 to 100 per day


Sometimes it's as simple as drinking a few extra glasses of water! Studies show that chugging some H2O can temporarily speed up your metabolism. So, keep your water bottle handy and hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.



Ginger isn't just a tasty spice; it also boosts metabolism. Studies have shown that adding ginger to a meal increases the thermic effect of food, meaning it helps burn more calories during digestion. Plus, it makes you feel fuller and reduces hunger without affecting blood sugar or fat levels. So, ginger can help manage weight and keep your metabolism humming. Perfect for anyone looking to keep trim without missing out on flavour!


Seaweed’s not just for sushi! Particularly the kelp. This superfood is a godsend when it comes to cranking up the metabolism and trimming the fat, especially if you're carrying a few extra kilos. Packed with dietary fibres like alginates, kelp is the go-to for feeling fuller longer, munching fewer calories, and even blocking some of those pesky nutrients from sticking around where they shouldn’t. Plus, it's loaded with other clever compounds that get in there and fight the flab by firing up your fat burn. 

How The Lady Shake Supports Your Metabolism


Alright, let’s talk about The Lady Shake. This isn’t just any old weight loss shake; it’s packed with natural ingredients known to boost your metabolism.

With green tea extract, you’re getting a top-notch metabolism booster. Rich in those previously mentioned catechins and caffeine — it's great for burning body fat.

Then there’s MCTs, different from your usual fats because they're metabolised quicker, turning into energy you can use rather than sticking around your middle. And don’t forget the coffee and cocoa – both have caffeine.

The Lady Shake also boasts probiotics like Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species, emerging stars in metabolic health, and chia seeds, an excellent source of fibre for keeping you fuller for longer.

These ingredients aren’t just randomly thrown together; they’re there to help you with weight management by boosting your metabolism as part of a balanced diet.

Lifestyle Changes For Enhancing Metabolism


Besides getting in your daily Lady Shakes and metabolism-boosting foods and supplements, it's important that you get moving!

Regular physical activity, especially lifting weights/engaging in other forms of strength training or resistance training to increase your muscle mass, can keep your metabolism high. High-intensity interval training (HIIT), which alternates between maximum effort and brief rest periods, is also super effective at boosting metabolic function.

And don't skimp on sleep – lack of shut-eye can mess with your metabolism, so make sure that you're getting at least seven hours of sleep a night. Keep stress in check too; a long walk or meditation practice can work wonders.

Keep The Fire Burning And Beat Your Slow Metabolism Blues

Boosting your metabolism naturally isn’t just a pipe dream.

With these natural metabolism boosters and lifestyle tweaks – and a helping hand from The Lady Shake – you can crank up your body’s engine and get yourself on the path to achieving your health and weight loss efforts.
