ways to fire up your metabolism

Is your metabolism like a tiny match or a burning campfire? 🔥⁣

Peep this post to see how you can rev that metabolic fire!⁣

>> Ditch your chronic cardio and intense HIIT for strength training. You’ll build lean muscle which burns more calories all the time. Plus, it’s far less stressful on the body.⁣

>> Your body is tired of dieting! Maybe instead of losing, cutting, shredding, you try eating at enough to support your needs so you nourish and fuel your metabolism. ⁣

>> Banish crash diets and juice cleanses that promise quick results. You know it’s just water weight AND it’s leaving your metabolism in the tank. ⁣

>> Sleep. You probably need to sleep more than you need that 5 AM workout – no really!⁣

>> Aim to move more in your daily life walking, standing, parking farther away, taking the stairs – it all counts. Burn more calories without putting extra stress on the body (or requiring you to eat extra calories) like formal workouts do.⁣

>> Eat more protein. Did you know simply eating protein triggers muscle building? Just the act of eating more will stoke that metabolic fire. ⁣

>> Eat more total calories. Your metabolism is manipulatable – the more you eat the higher it is and the less you eat the lower it is. Your metabolism has NO hope on those 1200, 1000 even 900 calorie diets 👀⁣

>> Alcohol redirects metabolism. Not only does it contain unusable calories and puts extra stress on the body to detox, fat loss and lean muscle building are paused.⁣

>> Aim to have a macro balanced plate with protein, fat and carbohydrate source included at each meal. This leads to balanced blood sugar which sets you up for a healthy metabolism and ensures your meal is filling, satisfying and contains a variety of nutrients.⁣

Not sure where to start? Pick 1 or 2 things that you know will be the easiest for you to do and start there!⁣
