Burn Easy Calories, Speed Up Your Metabolism!

Quick list of a few EASY ways to burn more calories throughout the day.

Eat more Protein– Fish, chicken, low-fat cheese, yogurt, nuts and legumes. Protein makes you feel full and is a great source of calories, read http://wp.me/p1mRvx-5c to see how much protein you should be eating.

Load up on low-fat Dairy- In a study published in the January 2003 American Society for Nutritional Sciences Journal of Nutrition, women who consumed milk, yogurt, and cheese three to four times a day lost 70 percent more body fat than women who didn’t eat dairy

Eat hot and spicy- Add peppers to your meals … even just some red pepper flakes! The spice stimulates your body to release more stress hormones like adrenaline, speeding up your metabolism giving you an increased calorie burn. Also, pepper-eaters have less of an appetite, supposedly because the spiciness of the food makes you feel full. hmmm

Eat Breakfast- Your body will hold on to your fat if it thinks you’re trying to starve it! People who eat breakfast lose weight healthily!

Drink Cold Water– If you drink a 5-6 glasses a day, add ice! Your body needs to bring the water temperature down to your body temp, it’s not much, 50 calories, but that from drinking 0 calories… whoooa!

Drink Green Tea– It’s known to boost your metabolic rate – burning up to 4-5% more calories in a day. Green Tea has polyphenols and catechins which are powerful antioxidants that helps flush out toxins from your system. Toxins and chemical build up in your body, over time not only makes you gain weight but also slows down your metabolism.

Lift Weights & add Sprint Intervals to your workout routine– Rev up that heart and don’t waste your workouts. It might seem complicated but you can make your workouts efficient if you know how your body reacts to exercise.

Don’t Stress- Long-term stress can make you fat,  your body floods with stress hormones, stimulating fat cells in the abdomen to increase in size and encourage fat storage.

Be Happy!

  1. I drink 4 or 5 cups of green tea a day and swear by it’s fat shifting properties. I would always recommend drinking a green tea infused with lemon as it (supposedly) increases the effectiveness of the catechines, the antitoxidant element of the tea.

    I’m going to make the point of drinking more ice water and seeing what that does!

    Thanks
