Metabolism-boosting Tips to Support Weight Management

Metabolism is the process by which your body makes and uses energy from food to fuel its daily activities. It’s an essential part of your health that helps you power through everyday life. Typically, the higher it functions, the more calories your body can burn, making it easier to shed unwanted pounds. On the other hand, a slow or inefficient metabolism can lead to weight gain, fatigue and other health issues.

Fortunately, there are several simple strategies you can use to boost your metabolism and improve your overall health. You may not have been born with the best genetics, but you can make better choices that could help improve your quality of life. 

Eat More Fiber

Keep your metabolism moving and your unhealthy cravings at bay with a little help from some fiber-rich staples. When you find yourself looking for your next snack before you’ve even finished your main course, it’s time to incorporate more fiber into your diet. Look for fruits, veggies and whole grains that will keep you feeling full for longer periods of time. You can even mix up a delicious Slenderiiz® Pure Nourish™ which includes seven grams of fiber per serving!

Drink Coffee

Some studies show that caffeine in coffee can increase the rate at which your body burns calories, promoting fat loss and boosting your overall metabolism by 3-11%. But before you run and pick up your favorite sugar-packed Frappuccino, keep in mind this is only true for black coffee or espresso.

Stay Hydrated

Your body is like a plant and thrives most when it’s fully hydrated. That’s why it’s crucial that you consume plenty of fluids throughout the day, especially if you live an active lifestyle. Choosing water over other unhealthy options like sugar-packed sodas and juices will help your metabolism function at its peak. Water has also been known to help curb your appetite, so grab your Puritii® Water Bottle and consider increasing your daily dosage if you’re feeling a bit sluggish—every body can benefit!

Try High Intensity Workouts/Strength Training

Rev up your workout sessions with HIIT: high-intensity interval training. It’s effective at burning belly fat and boosting your metabolism because it alternates between short bursts of intense moves and periods of lower intensity, which helps you burn more calories not only during your workout but long after you’re finished.

Don’t Miss a Protein-packed, Post-workout Snack

Hit the kitchen after you hit the gym! This might sound counterproductive, but providing your body with a healthy, protein-packed snack after a solid workout can actually help your metabolism keep working to shed weight and build muscle. Look for the perfect balance of protein and carbs, like a banana with peanut butter. Or pick up a can of LIMU LEAN® BURN. With over twenty different vitamins and minerals, 20 grams of premium protein, seven grams of soluble fiber and our proprietary Fucoidan-rich LIMU seaweed extract, it’s an excellent choice for anyone looking to supplement their fitness goals.

Get Plenty of Sleep

Don’t underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. A lack of snoozing can elevate your cortisol levels, which in turn slows down your metabolism. You might feel like you’re wasting your morning by sleeping in an extra hour or two, but consider how much your body will benefit from the added rest! If you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, it’s important to remember to recharge and refuel your body.

If you incorporate these six tips into your daily habits — and continue other healthy habits — you could see the number on the scale dropping in no time!
