10 Ways To Boost Your Metabolism For Summer!
Want to feel healthier and look better for the Summer months? Here are some simple tips to help you kick up your metabolism and shed those unwanted pounds in preparation for the beach.
Discover Yacon Root
The benefits of Yacon Root are myriad. It’s a metabolism booster, a fat burner and an appetite suppressant all in one. As an added bonus, Yacon is also high in antioxidants and potassium.
After waking up, jump-start your metabolism with a healthy breakfast like oatmeal with berries or a vegetable omelette.
Graze, Don’t Gorge
Six small meals a day (around 300 calories each) have been shown to be better for you than three large ones – plus they hold blood sugar levels down and prevent insulin spikes, which promote weight gain.
Keep your fat-burning systems functioning at top performance by only eating fruits and vegetables that haven’t been sprayed with chemical pesticides (which expose your thyroid to toxins).
Drink 8 glasses of water (or more) a day to burn more calories. Stay hydrated, stay healthy!
Take a Daily Multivitamin
Fill your nutritional gaps with a multivitamin containing all the necessary essentials for daily energy production.
Catch Some Zzzzzz’s
Research shows that not getting enough sleep every night is a surefire way to slow down your metabolism.
Shoot for those eight hours your mom always told you about.
Go Green (Tea)
Calorie-free green tea has been shown to not only be a powerful antioxidant, but also to assist in burning fat. Plus, it’s delicious.
Pump It Up
Weight lifting raises your muscle metabolism both during the exercise session – and for a long time afterward. Consult a trainer or physician before starting any intensive exercise program.
Just Say NO to Trans Fat
Trans fats are bad for you on many levels – among them, the lessening of your body’s ability to burn fat. Trans fats can also lead to insulin resistance, promoting weight gain.
