Dear Hopeful
The most powerful and healthy way of speeding up your metabolism is to increase your physical exercise on a daily basis. There are many options. If you wish to continue breastfeeding then start your daily exercise gently and gradually, and only start doing strenuous aerobic exercise when you have weaned your baby. Going for brisk walks in the fresh air with your baby in a pram or on your back in a sling, may be the easiest option. Otherwise try (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, spinning, aerobic dancing, swimming, joining a gym or Walk for Life) for 30 or more minutes a day.
Enjoy the baby
