    I had my gallbladder removed 12 weeks ago. Is there anything I can take to boost my metabolism?
    TIA

    Hiya, I've heard that excercise can help speed up metabolism (as it makes the muscles more lean, and then they burn more calories...or something like that lol). Also heard that green tea is good for weight loss (not sure in what way though). I even bought some a couple of weeks ago, but couldn't stand the taste :jelous:. I didn't know you could buy it in capsule form...right, I'm off to Holland & Barret tomorrow lol....
    Good luck.

    Hiya Jaqui, just looked online and it looks like Boots sell them aswell, £6.99 for 90. Holland & Barrett do them for £3.99 for 100, or one called Super Green Tea diet at £3.99 for 60. It looks like they're on offer, but will hopefully be same price in store. I'll let you know.
    Thanks for the tip off jovigirl :D

    I know this may sound like a silly question but are you drinking enough water? I don't know if there is any truth about whether or not it's supposed to help, but it will make you feel fresher too - have a glass of water every time you feel hungry.

    Drinking water means that your body will not store it like it used to. It would get used to having it regulary and that's why we lose "water weight".

    Apparently, chilli helps lower metabolism. Add some to your food each time and jobs a goodun!

    Thanks ladies. I do drink between 2 and 2.5 litres of sparkling water a day. I have one skinny latte a day then water. People in work were saying maybe I drink to much water. But this just seems the right amount to me?

    Drink as much as you want - I don't think 2 litres is too much, apparently they say it's the recommended daily intake (although according to my leader, it's more like 1.5lit) - there is such a thing as too much, but I think 2-3litres is okay.
