How long to change metabolism?

I slacked off during the summer heat and wasn't exercising as much. I had a couple of pounds creep back up consistent, so I got mad and hitting it hard again. I was noticing I had less energy and such also. How long does it take the body to adjust its metabolism? I'm jogging more and eating more often with the right foods.

Give it 3 weeks or so. Just don't over do it. And remember what to eat and at what time. If u wanna burn fat,wake up,and do cardio before you eat anything. Then eat some protein and healthy carbs.

You can change your metabolism pretty quick if you eat small meals/snacks/shakes every 2-3 hours . . . but then again, most peoples work schedules make that near impossible - I struggle with it every day

Your body adapts to change fairly well, but your metabolism isn't going to change as fast. It takes several weeks/months of repetition to get measurable response from your body, but even then it's still far from turning itself around.

Get more sleep by getting to bed earlier, eat a small meal before your workout, try to get in a bit of protein just before your workout and something for energy that isn't loaded with sugar/caffeine or otherwise detrimental to your health. Do your workout, don't forget to eat healthy and often, make sure you don't get too few calories per day, and get plenty of rest. You'll notice a difference in no time.
