5 Ways to Wake Your Metabolism Up!

April 21, 2015 2 min read

One of the biggest reasons for being stuck in a fitness rut or hitting a weightloss plateau is a slow metabolism. Your metabolism is the chemical processes that occur within your body in order to maintain life and daily fuctioning. Basically, it is how your body uses and receives the energy it needs to keep you living. ddd There are a lot of things that determine your metabolis rate such as:
  • age
  • weight
  • gender
  • genetics
Here are 5 sure ways to speed your metabolism up: ddd
  1. Eat enough and fequently. To maintain a higher metabolism, it is beneficial to eat throughout the day. This is mainly why 6 smaller meals per day is highly recommended. Also, by eating regularly, your blood sugar levels remain stabilized with prevents you from diving into your pantry at 12am.
  2. Build muscle and exercise.Exercise is the best way to raise your metabolic rate. Although aerobics might be best at getting your heart rate increased, lifting weights may be your best bet in the long run since you tend to burn more calories for the rest of the day-long after your workout is over. What should you do? Do both! Warm up with cardio and lift weights or end with cardio after lifting weights.
  3. Spice it up. There are more to spices than just to season bland tasting food-they can raise your metabolism, too! The best spices for increasing metabolism are: cinnamon, cayenne, turmeric, and ginger. Have fun with your spices and don't be afraid to try new things.
  4. Be patient. Fixing a slow metabolism does not happen over night just as your slow metabolism didn't happen overnight either. Continue working on your health and doing the things that you need to do and your patience will pay off. Your body will start to recognize it all and change before you realize it!
  5. Get your caffeine fix. It is not secret that caffeine spikes metabolisms-this is due to the fact that its a stimulant. Similar to fat burners on the market, it speeds up your body's natural processes. I love getting my caffeine from my 2 cups of coffee per day!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
