In just over a week I shall be returning for the new school year, and I know this is going to change my routine for the worse. I wanted to know, with the bussle of getting up early, getting dressed and eating breakfast, how might I be able to fit in time to get my Metabolism a wakeup call? Is there any exercise which I can do inside just for a few minutes to get my metabolism speedy, or any special other things such as drinking coffee. Any opinions, idea, comments etc. ?

Take care
Jack

Try jumping rope for a few minutes, that will get your blood pumping. Being active always helps me to wake up.

Just a thought

Well, the best way to speed up your metabolism is through cardiovascular (using the heart exercises). It is best to do cardio on an empty stomach. Here's why:
Overnight during sleep, calories (mostly complex carbohydrates) are burned slowly. By morning, blood sugar and carb levels low. This empty stomach training forces the body to look for an alternate energy source. If carbs and blood sugar levels are low, the body moves to its alternate source of energy which is fat.
Run on a treadmill or jump rope in the morning.
I, on occasion, take a metabolic surge supplement (Ma Huang) only because I do have a very sluggish metabo...and no time in the morning to workout. I workout in afternoon but mostly at night.
During rest of day,the best way to speed up the metabolism is by increasing meal frequency. Instead of eating 2 - 3 meals per day, try eating 4 - 5 small meals per day, or 3 meals and 2 healthy snack meals.
Good Luck!

I don't have time in the morning to do any work either...I run in the early evening and do other exercises late at night...before bed.

I didn't think metabolic supplement thingies actually did anything...I suppose they speed up your metabolism?
