We’re dying to know the secrets to metabolism.
But, guess what? There are no magical secrets, just common-sense ways we give ourselves a metabolic head-start.
Here are seven tips to get you started:
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.
Although you shouldn’t skip meals or go hungry, you do need to cut down to lose weight. Low glycemic, high protein (LGHP) eating — which should include Almased — 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 powerful effects on metabolism — all without the chore of counting calories!
