Fast, Healthy Weight Loss May 05 2015

 

Are you getting ready for the beach, graduation, prom or a wedding but can’t stay on your diet and fitness plan? This can be overwhelming for anyone.

The good news is that anyone can boost their metabolism by doing these two things:

    • Working out first thing in the morning at home, on an empty stomach to boost metabolism and endorphins.
    • When we feel better we eat better it’s that simple. Not to mention metabolic exercise reshapes your body without bulking and boosts metabolism which helps you lose weight and see results within the first week.

Intense exercise increases cortisol levels temporarily, but metabolic and lower intensity exercise seems to reduce them. University of California researchers say that metabolic exercise may blunt some of the negative effects of stress. Not to mention the increase in endorphins you feel that decrease appetite and increase a feeling of well-being. It's important to note that not all exercise is created equal. Metabolic exercise is the perfect combination of moves without overdoing it, which creates more stress in the body and higher cortisol levels.

Your morning meal sets the stage for the rest of your day, so start if off right. This step “offsets” calories you eat so if you're not so perfect you still lose weight—guaranteed.

Boost at breakfast by drinking a metabolic boosting whey protein shake. Whey is full of amino acids that nourish the body, improve mood and boost immunity, while providing lasting energy. Drinking a whey protein shake blocks cortisol to flip the hunger switch back to off.  Whey Protein boosts metabolism 25% and provides natural energy so you feel better fast. It provides the right nutrients your body needs to combat stress, which kills cravings for fast weight loss. Repeat this step for lunch as well.

You can expect to fall off your diet, so plan for it ahead of time. We are all human and that’s exactly why you drank the shake for breakfast. Most plans don’t allow for this and that's why they fail. It's not your fault but the plan that’s faulty.

What makes the metabolic boosting strategy so successful (by the way, everyone loses weight on this plan) is that you need your metabolism boosted and running at optimal speed, so when you cheat you don’t gain an ounce. This also makes room for the human things we do.

Here are a few examples of the “cheats” most people do that stop them from losing weight. Most of the time people will say: “I only ate a little”. Sadly that’s all it takes to stop weight loss.

    • Excess fats: nuts, avocados and cheese  
    • Excessive protein of the wrong kind: Chicken, salmon – more than 3 ounces  
    • Excessive carb intake: fruit, wraps, protein bars , drinks and smoothies
