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,” he explains. This way, 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.4870009f7a20e45bb84

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?

    Since getting that surge of energy I have jumped on the exercise train and not stopped. I am so proud of myself as I am trying so many different classes like Zumba, fitsteps, swimming, running, yoga, pilates and clubbercise. I even started attending a weekly bootcamp and gave it my all.

    During and after exercise I feel euphoric, I can’t help but smile at how far I’ve come and the endorphins released make you feel so full of energy for the rest of the day. I love exercising now and make sure I step at least 10,000 steps every day.

    Since starting these exercises I’ve come so far and it’s so noticeable. I can now run 5k without stopping whereas back in January I couldn’t breathe after 60 seconds. I feel stronger, faster, fitter and I am sure it’s helped in the changes of my body shape and to help my skin retract back. I feel fabulous and will keep this in my routine for life to help maintain my weight forever xx

    Not doing any. Sruggle to walk. Hopefully in a few more weeks will be able to. One of my goals.

  3. pauline mc givern says:

    i cannot exercise much at the moment the odd stroll is all i can manage. but once i do it i feel great The reason i dont exercise more is down to injuries fron car accidents, i do notice my legs are firming up from the walking and weightloss of course lol, any kind of movement is exercise so get moving and shaking everyone. xxx

    I havent been doing much exercise on plan. Have been walking a little more and doing more housework.

    Getting out for a walk and getting fresh air helps me feel refreshed.

    Iv noticed that i dont get as puffed out anymore when out esp if we are walking uphillxxx

  5. Clare Neilson says:

    1)Yes. I go to a cardio weight class for 20 mins each day. I try to do at least 4 classes a week and sometimes do a Saturday morning.
    2)We mix it up so that sits always challenging and I feel amazing when I’ve finished. It’s almost euphoric such a buzz.
    3) I’ve noticed a huge difference in stamina and appearance. I believe that I’m much more toned and have a better shape. I can now do so many more things that I never could. I can 20 sit ups in a minute and can now manage press ups. I always had strong legs but my upper body strength has improved so much in just three months. Xx

  6. Carly says:

    Yes. Although I suffer from arthritis and Underactive thyroid problems…I exercise most days for at least an hour…brisk walking. This averages at 7,000 steps.
    I also do Aquafit for strength and resistance training and some swimming afterwards twice a week. I walk the dog too and that’s about it. I occasionally do other exercise regimes and hope to start yoga when I’m a bit slimmer soon!!
    I’m open to other classes as they come along and knees permitting. But power walking and the pool are my main exercise.

    I feel so good and so much fitter when I walk or swim. I know my muscles are getting a good workout and I walk by the sea so really good for meditating and the soul!

    I feel and see more definition in my body even though I’m not yet at goal and I so enjoy doing it. Walk with a friend. You’ll enjoy it even more then go for a coffee after. Only a coffee mind!♡♡
