Here you go… let’s get down to business with 6 ways to boost your metabolism right now. Yes, right now.
EAT PROTEIN AT EVERY MEAL – It’s easy to meal prep baked chicken breasts, grilled fish, or buy rotisserie chicken, Greek yogurt, or vacuum-packed tuna. Add protein to every meal for an added boost.
DRINK ENOUGH WATER – Start and end your day with an 8oz glass and keep a filled water bottle handy at all times. Half your body weight in water ounces or more helps with proper digestion.
LIFT HEAVY THINGS – Lifting ‘heavy for you’ weights not only gives you the ‘toned’ (aka strong) look you want, but more muscle means higher metabolism. Lift those weights ladies, I promise you won’t come out looking like Popeye!
DO HIIT TRAINING – High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) raises your heart rate and helps you burn calories long after you’ve stopped your workout. Do this in moderation and you’ll see increased metabolism over time.
MOVE MORE – Park far from the entrance, take the stairs, walk around the house or step away from your desk for a 2-minute dance party. All of this increases your Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT), an unstoppable metabolism booster.
SLEEP WELL – Easier said than done I know, but the longer, deeper, better quality of sleep you can get, the more your metabolism will work for you. 7-9 hours a night for optimal metabolic benefit.
I challenge you to focus on hitting two of these six metabolism-boosting strategies this entire week. For me, it’s eating enough protein and getting enough sleep. Comment below which strategies you’ll be focusing on below so I can cheer you on!
