Simple Ways to Boost Your #Metabolism
If you have a “good metabolism” this means your body needs more calories to function, meaning that you will find it easier to LOSE WEIGHT and MAINTAIN your weight loss.
As part of the #Mchallenge, we want to encourage you to build in healthy habits that will improve your metabolism. Most things are very easy to do, and the more you add in, and the more consistently you can do them, the better results you will get!
Remember you want to be building in habits for the LONG TERM! You will want to keep your metabolism boosted when you get to your target weight to help you maintain your weight loss.
Watch today’s video and read below to find out what habits you can build in to help your body burn fat faster!
1.) Drink 500ml Water Every Hour & Boost Metabolism by 30%
We recommend you drink 4 litres of water every day…. sip, sip, sip…. every hour drink 500mls of water, and this will boost your metabolism by 30%, helping your body to burn fat faster and flush it out of your system! I like to look at water as “fat melting liquid!” Drinking water can boost your body’s ability to burn fat. A study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism found that drinking water (about 17oz) increases metabolic rate by 30 percent in healthy men and women.
2.) Have a New You Plan Pineapple Fat Burner Drink
I love to start the day with a hot pineapple fat burner drink (you can also have these cold!). Our pineapple fat burner drinks contain calcium, chromium & green tea leaf extract ~ these ingredients help to boost your body’s metabolism, maintain blood glucose levels, and increase fat burning and energy levels. You can have up to 3 a day. They are one of our best selling products and you can purchase them on our website.
3.) Do Strength Training 2 Times A Week to Reverse the Slow Down of Metabolism by Ageing by 50%
As we get older our metabolism slows down, if we can build in the habit of strength-training just a couple of times a week, for example, you’ll reverse 50% of the seemingly inevitable metabolism slow-down that comes with age, says Gary Hunter, PhD, a professor of human studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
4.) Move a Wee Bit Faster for A Short Length of Time
The next time you run, swim, or even walk, ramp up the intensity for 30-second intervals, returning to your normal speed afterward. Using this strategy will help you consume more oxygen and make your cell powerhouses, the mitochondria, work harder to burn energy, explains Mark Hyman, MD, an integrative and functional medicine specialist in private practice in Lenox, Massachusetts, and author of Ultrametabolism: The Simple Plan for Automatic Weight Loss. “You increase the number of mitochondria and how efficiently they burn throughout the day,” heway, you can exercise for less time than it takes to plod along at the same pace and still get great results. Here’s how to do it: Exercise for 5 minutes at 3.5 mph. Increase your speed to 4 mph for 60 seconds. Then go back down to 3.5 mph for 90 seconds. Repeat the entire sequence 5 times, twice a week. (To get a more challenging workout, increase the incline or your pace.
5.) Omega 3
Eating lots of fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids (salmon, herring, and tuna) helps to amp up metabolism. Omega-3s balance blood sugar and reduce inflammation, helping to regulate metabolism. They may also reduce resistance to the hormone leptin, which researchers have linked to how fast fat is burned. If you are following The New You Plan – you can add in Omega 3s for all of our plans. FAST FOCUS – Total Food Replacement – Take a supplement between 1,000 and 2,000 milligrams per day. FRESH FOCUS – New You 5:2 Intermittent Fasting – Take a supplemet or add in Flaxseed Oil or Walnuts or Fish to your diet. FAMILY FOCUS – New You Meal Packs for Breakfast, Lunch & Snacks – One Healthy Family Meal in the evening – Take a supplement or add in Flaxseed Oil or Walnuts or Fish to your diet.
6.) Make some muscle
Not only does muscle weigh more than fat, but it uses more energy, too. The average woman in her 30s who strength-trains 30 to 40 minutes twice a week for four months will increase her resting metabolism by 100 calories a day. That means you’re resetting your body’s thermostat to keep running at that rate even on the days when you don’t make it to the gym.
Your task today is to answer the following questions:
1) Do you take part in any exercise? (Walking, Kids school run etc all counts towards exercise)
2) If yes how does it make you feel? If no why?
(please note you dont have to do any exercise for this diet to work)
3) Can you notice a difference in your body from you started doing some exercise?
