Many of us want to lose weight, look slim, and feel healthy. If that’s our goal, then we need to dial up our metabolic switch.
Anyone who has battled the bulge yet remains stubbornly overweight may think they are forever stuck with a slow metabolism, but that is not so.
A slow metabolism can be revved up, and here's where to start.
1. Switch to smart calories
Surprisingly, eating too little can slow metabolism to a snail’s pace. Burning fewer calories is the body’s way of conserving energy.
Though you shouldn’t skip meals or go hungry, you do need to cut down to lose weight. Low glycemic, high protein (LGHP) eating enables you to eat more while weighing less.
First, let go of high-calorie, low-nutrition, deep-fried, fatty and sugary foods. For most people, keeping unhealthy foods in the diet doesn't work well in the long run. Real change is needed to hang onto the good results you want.
Stick with nutrient-dense, high-fiber foods that satisfy the appetite, like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Protein sources can include seeds, nuts, lentils, and beans; lean meats; healthy fish; plus low-fat dairy and eggs.
LGHP foods can have a notable effect on metabolism – and without the chore of counting calories!
Luckily, Almased is the LGHP meal replacement and food supplement. It provides not only a full 27 grams of protein per serving but also separately provides nearly 15 grams of essential amino acids.
