Tips + Tricks to Boost Metabolism and Speed Up Weight Loss!

 Tips to Boost Metabolism!

Metabolism is the system that converts what you eat and drink into energy. At any time this can speed up and slow down. So how can you signal to your body that food is plentiful, times are good and you are ready to speed up and burn fat?

1.    Eat Healthy Fats. Like; dark chocolate, avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, natural peanut butter, nuts-walnuts, flax seed, fish-salmon, olives, and soybeans.
2.    Eat Small Meals. Every 3-4 hours. Eating every 3-4 hours can help you develop a great relationship with food and keep you burning fat for hours.
3.    Drink 2-3 Liters of Water a Day. According to WebMD, after drinking 17 oz. of water, metabolism speeds up 30% within 10 minutes and reaches a maximum boost after 30-40 minutes.
4.    Sleep 8 Hours. Sleep helps the body perform at its best all day long. Sleep deprivation signals your metabolism to slow down, use less energy, and causes many to binge later in the day. Sleeping your way to slim works!
5.    Avoid Restrictive Diets. Avoid diets that are under 1350-1500 calories a day for women depending on height.
6.    Eat More to Lose Weight. Extreme calorie restriction wrecks lasting weight loss efforts as your body compensates by slowing down your metabolism and conserves calories for survival.

7.    Foods to Include in Your Diet. Raspberries, salmon, green tea, avocado, chili peppers, fennel tea, flax seeds, watermelon, chicken, almonds, apples, soybeans.
