Boost Your Metabolism Before Eating
If you decide you will enjoy a tasty but maybe not a good nutritious meal, here are a few ways how:
• Do at least a 40 minute workout at 80% of your maximum heart rate (MMR) capacity.
Here’s how to figure that out. Calculate your MMR first by subtracting your age from 220. So 220 – (Your Age) = Your Maximum Heart Rate. Then take 80% of that number. Example: A 34 year olds maximum heart rate is 186. 80% of 186 = 148.
• Kettlebell Swings for 20 minutes. Yes only 20 minutes. Kettlebells target almost all of your major muscles groups at once when done correctly. Do as many as you can, stop and rest for 30 seconds to catch your breath, then repeat. Do this for maximum of 20 minutes.
• Go lift some weights at the gym for 30 minutes BEFORE you do your cardio. You’ll gain more strength and burn more fat – a double bonus feature!
• Eat a protein packed breakfast and/or lunch. The protein actually helps you burn more fat. Great time to try vegetarian protein powder – Vtein™. Easy, quick, and 20 grams of easily digestible, lean protein per serving. more info
There is one more thing you can do. There is a product we have to mention called Vlocity™ that is thermogenic. It is designed to help your body boost its metabolic rate, naturally. Take 2-3 capsules right when you wake up and take 2-3 capsules right before you start eating your food feast. The body will love a little extra help from time to time. This will also provide an energy boost in the process. read more
