How Can I Keep My Metabolism Burning Calories and Fat?

If you’ve been tuning in to the weight loss menus this past week, you’ve noticed that I’ve recommended eating 6 times throughout each day— 3 meals plus 3 snacks. While there is some debate from doctors and nutritionists whether you’re better off eating 3 larger meals during the day or 6 smaller meals, the recent research is showing more and more that your metabolism responds better to frequent smaller meals.

The attached article discusses this in more detail. Again, it’s important to note that eating more frequently throughout the day shouldn’t equate to eating more food. You’re simply spreading your total daily food intake throughout your day.

If you’re still struggling with eating a balanced healthy diet throughout the week, my first recommended step is to log everything you eat or drink for three days. It creates self-awareness—you’ll start to really notice what you’re eating and can also start to notice patterns on paper that you may not have realized otherwise. You can’t make changes until you know what needs to change!

If you’d like help pinpointing the areas of your diet to focus on first, submit your 3-day log to me via Messenger and I’ll provide you with some simple recommendations. If possible, take pictures of every meal and submit those along with your log. This way it doesn’t get so overwhelming changing everything at once and you’re less likely to burn out.

When your body absorbs toxins, it stores them in fat, which is why fiber and probiotics are strategic weapons for weight loss. Fiber keeps your colon healthy and reduces your body’s absorption of toxins. Aim for 35 grams of fiber daily with plenty of water. If you can’t get all your fiber from whole grains, fruits, and vegetables, consider an organic fiber additive. Probiotics also aid in digestive health by supporting beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract. Good bacteria enable your body to fend off incoming toxins, absorb nutrients more efficiently, promote good colon function, and strengthen the immune system. Good bacteria naturally decrease with age, but you can increase it by eating yogurt, kefir, and sauerkraut. You may also want to supplement with a high-potency probiotic that contains 80 billion bifidobacteria and lactobacilli.

The idea here is to inundate your system with pure nutrition— to eat as we did as hunters and gatherers— well, that is, except for the use of a blender. 😉 So nuts, seeds, veggies, and fruits are all key.

Eating this way will not only reset your system, but your taste buds too! After 3 days you will start to crave a healthier diet, and if you eat processed fried food, you will feel it. You’ll feel sluggish and bloated. 𝙇𝙞𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙣 𝙩𝙤 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙗𝙤𝙙𝙮, 𝙞𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝙩𝙚𝙡𝙡 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙛𝙤𝙤𝙙𝙨 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙝𝙤𝙪𝙡𝙙 𝙗𝙚 𝙚𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙗𝙮 𝙝𝙤𝙬 𝙞𝙩 𝙛𝙚𝙚𝙡𝙨 30-60 𝙢𝙞𝙣𝙪𝙩𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙚𝙖𝙩.

Does water really help weight loss? The short answer is yes. Drinking water helps boost your metabolism, cleanses your body of waste, and acts as an appetite suppressant. Also, drinking more water helps your body stop retaining water, leading you to drop those extra pounds of water weight.

While there’s plenty of benefits to a HIIT routine while you’re actually doing it, the best is yet to come. The hidden gem with HIIT is that it increases your metabolism, enabling your body to burn more fat as you rest. This happens because HIIT triggers a reaction called Excess Post Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC).

According to some studies, EPOC makes a huge difference because it doesn’t just increase the caloric expenditure; it increases fat burning. A study investigating the amount of fats and calories burnt in anaerobic HIIT exercises found that HIIT 𝘿𝙊𝙐𝘽𝙇𝙀𝘿 the amount of fats burned during the same caloric expenditure as compared to steady cardio workouts.
