Your intense workouts do a great job of kicking your metabolism into high gear. But, doing a high intensity workout isn’t the only way to burn more fat and calories. In fact, there are really easy ways to stay slim. Try incorporating one (or more) of these easy strategies into your daily life, and your metabolism will make sure you stay in tip-top shape.
