The more weight you lose, the harder your body fights to hold on to the calories it gets and the fewer calories it burns.

But what if you could turbo-change your weight loss efforts?

You can by boosting your metabolism with these helpful tips.

Burn more calories in the same amount of time by swinging your arms when you walk, wearing a weighted vest, walking on grass, sand or gravel, using walking poles or walking along the shoreline of a beach or pond.

These will make your walk more intense thus burning more calories.

12. Increase protein in your diet

There is some evidence that if you increase your protein intake to the upper end of the recommended range (roughly 20 per cent of your overall calories), the amount of energy you expend at rest will remain the same even while you’re losing weight.

Normally, as you lose weight, your body adjusts and you burn fewer calories at rest.
