Fast Metabolism Next Steps
Keep Your Metabolism Burning Hot
You may be wondering “I have a fast metabolism. How do I keep it?” The metabolism is your body’s very own set of checks and balances that keeps all your systems running efficiently. And it’s a lifestyle. Having a repaired, fast metabolism comes with amazing results. Your skin and hair will thrive, you’ll have more energy and stable blood sugar, and yes – you lose weight! Here are 7 tips I think you should focus on to help you maintain a healthy, fast burning metabolism:
1. The End of Calorie Counting
That’s right. Weight Watchers and other diets for years have told us that it’s all about calories-in, calories-out. But it’s just not true. You can’t tell me that a 100-calorie serving of delicious butternut squash, or succulent strawberries or fiber-filled oatmeal has the same “value” as one of those tiny 100-calorie packets of chemical-filled cookies. This year, focus on eating real, whole foods, not pre-packaged junk.
2. Love Your Liver
Your poor liver – it’s the organ that processes every bit of food and drink that passes your lips. When the food you’re eating is full of preservatives, pesticides and genetically modified ingredients like corn and soy, your liver spends too much time processing useless chemicals, taxing your whole system. Free up your liver’s resources by eating minimally processed meats and organic veggies — healthful foods that set your metabolism on fire.
3. Aprons are Sexy
There’s no better way to understand your body than to cook your own food. And there are few better ways to show love for family and friends than cooking for them! Savoring food and really enjoying a meal together brings us closer. So put on that apron! Take pleasure in cooking and show love through food!
4. Farmer’s Markets are the New Bars
What better place to meet someone special than over a mountain of organic green beans, or in line at the free-range egg stand? Farmer’s markets celebrate healthy, delicious, conscious living and the pleasure of choosing ingredients and cooking your own meals. What a great place to meet others who share that love.
5. Make Peace with Food
Before you can calm your body and fire up your metabolism, you’ll need to stop stressing about food, and stop thinking of food as the enemy. Embrace the idea of real food — you know, the kind without an ingredient list that sounds like a chemistry experiment. Instead of thinking about all the things you shouldn’t eat, get creative in the kitchen, get to know your slow cooker, pull your blender out of storage and make nice with whole, nutrient rich foods.
6. Join the Lifestyle
Follow the Fast Metabolism Diet rules: Keep exercising. Keep making your own foods and eating regular, balanced meals (three meals and two snacks). Keep drinking lots of water. Eat only what comes from the land, earth, sea and sky. Steer clear of ingredients you can’t pronounce, chemicals, colors and preservatives.
7. Keep it Up
Keep learning about good health and your metabolism. Limit your use of packaged products, and don’t buy one without flipping it over to check out the ingredient list. Focus on buying and eating real food. Lastly, stick with me. I’m here to help you through this website, and my Facebook page. My Pinterest boards include healthy food ideas and recipes.
