Other than just eating smaller, more frequent meals during the day, does anyone have any ideas about how to boost your metabolism? I guess I'm not into the pill stuff. I would rather do it naturally.

Weight bearing exercise will help.

Aerobic exercise.

Chilli, mustard, ginger, coffee - but only to a small degree.

If I'm not answering quickly enough - leave a note on Twitter for @Rheumatologe

Pregnancy seems to have kicked mine into overdrive. I've gone from being able to look at food and gain weight to half a dozen times a day and consistently losing.

Calorie changes can help as well.

For instance:

Day 1: 2000 cal

Day 2: 1800 calories

Day 3: 1600 calories


*caloric intake is based on individual need. The above example may be too little or too much depending on the individual.

Other than that, you mentioned 5-6 meals 2-3 hrs apart. And of course exercise, primarily weight bearing. You'd be amazed at what putting on some muscle will do for fat burning.

Build muscles! Muscle burns more calories at rest than fat does.
