3-Day Fix to SUPERCHARGE your Metabolism

With the holidays just around the corner, now is the perfect time to jumpstart your metabolism. “When you have a slower-than-normal metabolism, it creates a cascade of negative side effects, including fatigue, mood swings, food cravings, and difficulty losing weight.” states an article by Healthline.com. Getting a handle on your metabolism now may prevent the holiday weight gain that usually pops up in January…and it can be done in only 3 days!

 

Day 1: (Saturday)

Get a solid 8 hours of sleep.

Don’t skip breakfast.

Work in a 20 minute strength training circuit or cardio.

Get to sleep before midnight.

 

Day 2 (Sunday)

Wake up at 8am.

Start your day with a cup of coffee.

Drink plenty of water.

Prep meals for the week — and be sure to throw in some chili peppers.

Increase your NEAT: (non-exercise activity thermogenesis) — or the energy that is expended from general daily activities — has a significant impact on the number of calories your body burns each day” states the article.

 

Day 3 (Monday):

Wake up after you’ve had 8 hours of sleep.

Add some protein to every meal

Meditate.
