• A generally healthy lifestyle probably is the best focus to have in order to lose weight while gaining energy. It starts getting more complex as one sorts out "how to have a generally healthy lifestyle both mentally and physically". Unfortunately, our society currently has this penchant for the magic "silver bullet", the overnight result of a magic pill. However, many good effects, both mental and physical, can be gained by a gradient, step-by-step approach to improvement. Also, many damaging effects often sneak up on a person in that same step-by-step, little-by-little gradient manner. Increasing one's understanding on a continual basis surely is key. Here are some ideas, but this is by no means a complete answer. A heathy, balanced and nutritious diet and exercise on a regular basis will improve the metabolic rate. Exercise would be important on a routine basis several times a day. Just taking ordinary walks as a routine exercise can go a long ways towards improving one's metabolism. Over time your basal metabolism will improve as long as you are getting proteins, whole grains, green leafy vegetables, etc. Also, try kelp as a supplement. This is many times overlooked by people dieting or trying to increase their metab. Often someone who is trying to lose weight is on an excellent program, but is not getting good results because this key nutrient was lacking in their diet. This important supplement is often neglected in many weight loss regimens. Toxins in the body can hamper all kinds of health programs and cause the body not to function properly. Solvents, metals, and a whole host of pollutants or toxic substances in many of our everyday products often indirectly or directly upset functions of the body. These, combined with parasites or bacteria and viruses, make many different good programs appear ineffective. When body organs or functions are hindered, the body doesn't work correctly and it gets all out of wack. Handling the elimination system, (like the kidneys and bile produced stones), along with body parasites, can go a long ways towards improved energy. A healthy mental outlook is always important. Results for weight loss and dramatic improvement in energy come about when the body is not hampered by things which are hurting it. The short simple perspective here is to remove any antagonistic properties affecting the body. There is more information on this website and from a variety of books regarding handling toxins or parasites or improving the elimination of body waste products. You can always write me with any questions on sources. Here is a simple diet tidbit which could markedly help in improving one's metabolism or dramatically help in losing weight. Coconut Oil. Ha! At first glance, one could have the impression that this thick solid white oil could clog the arteries and be a health problem or cause weight gain. Actually, having it in one's diet can naturally increase one's metabolism and naturally help a person to lose weight. Coconut oil has some wonderful properties, including some anti-viral and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and anti-parasitic characteristics. It is one of the few oils which doesn't have as much of a problem going rancid. There are some remarkable stories about its benefits. Also, it is interesting to note that people in regions which use this oil as a staple in their diet or cooking enjoy some benefits not often seen in the Western cultures. I think many people will start noticing immediate results when taking this oil. Again, this is not a "magic bullet", but it is worth trying along with other good programs. There are a lot of good answers to other questions on this website which are very applicable to answering this question. I hope this helps somewhat and that other people will contribute some more information answering your question.
