New Delhi: You probably must've heard people who struggle to lose weight putting their blame on a slow metabolism.

Metabolism is a natural process that takes place within the cells of living organisms. During metabolism, your body converts what you eat and drink into energy required to power everything you do, from moving to thinking to growing.

While there are some things about your metabolism that you can't change – such as age, your medical history - there are a number of things you can do to boost your metabolism and speed up the rate at which you burn calories and lose weight.

Here are five most effective ways:

Eat well

Remember when you cut back on calories, your body slows the rate at which it burns calories to conserve energy, causing your metabolism to slow. This is because your body's not getting enough energy required to carry out normal day-to-day functions. Instead of dieting that can slow a person's metabolism, try eating enough calories to maintain a healthy metabolic function.

Don't skip breakfast

Many people skip breakfast or meals in an attempt to cut calories and lose weight, which is wrong. Eeating regular, frequent meals, especially breakfast can help kickstart your digestion and fire up your metabolism as well as helping the body regulate blood sugar levels.

Include omega-3 fatty acids

Taking omega-3 fatty acids may help improve body composition by boosting metabolism and fat burning potential. They also seem to help balance blood sugar and reduce inflammation, which aids in regulating metabolism.

Aerobic activity

It is a well-known fact that aerobic activity is the most efficient way to burn calories. Try to do 150 minutes of aerobic activity, such as walking, cycling, a week. You can achieve this by doing 30 minutes five days a week. Physical activity, when combined with a sensible diet, can help you lose weight faster.

Rest well

You've done all these, but still it's not helping you much. This could be because you aren't letting your body get adequate sleep. There's a proven link between sleep deprivation and poor metabolic rate. Sleep loss can affect the basic metabolic functions of storing carbohydrates and regulating hormones. Because sleep plays a vital role in regulating metabolism and appetite, the metabolic system will be out of balance when you don't get enough sleep, which will ultimately affect the dietary choices you make
