Easy Tips to Strengthen Your Metabolism

1. Eat regularly and don’t diet

Frequent diets will drive ou19554498_1557028314315428_1013346670231931201_nr body into starvation mode. It reduces its activity and therefore the number of calories it will burn. Therefore, eat regularly but limit your food ingestion to 3 times per day.

2. Eat Plenty of Protein at Every Meal

Eating food can increase your metabolism which is called the THERMIC EFFECT of food. This is due to the fact that additional calories are required to digest, absorb and process the nutrients.

3. Drink more water

Water ingestion may also have an effect on increased thermogenesis and thus will burn additional calories. In addition, drinking water will increase satiety.

4. Sleep sufficiently

Lack of sleep will decrease the fullness hormone leptin as well as increase the hunger hormone ghrelin. Sleep deprivation is also linked to raised insulin resistance.

5. Keep on moving

If you have a sedentary job, try to get up frequently, take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk rather than take your car.

6. Ingest foods that boost your metabolism

Last but not least, there are some foods that might help you to strengthen your metabolism. Spice up your meals with PEPPERS containing the substance CAPSAICIN.
GINGER as well as APPLE CIDER VINEGAR also seem to boost your metabolism.

Inspired Pizza Creations – Time to rethink Pizza

If you decide to be inspired by the following combinations, please remember to only have one protein.  Also, we suggest making a Chickpea flour pizza crust  and then adding the toppings (Chickpea flour crust will be your protein.)

NOTE:  These recipes in the infographic are not metabolic balance recipes. This is inspiration for you to play with during your holiday.  If you are unsure about a combination, please ask your coach.

Also, please remember you can only use one protein on your pizzas so if you use the chickpea flour crust, that is the only protein you can use.

If you want to have a pizza feeling, you can take your rye bread and iron it flat or roll it flat using a rolling pin and then grilling it before adding the toppings and putting it in the oven.

If you use your rye bread this way, you can add the cheese on your plan to the pizza!
