Boost Your Metabolism by Working with a Licensed Registered Dietitian!
Healthy lasting weight loss is possible through personalized nutrition plans created for you by a licensed registered dietitian.
Have you ever wondered what the secret is to weight loss and having a good metabolism? Why is it that some people seem to be able to eat all the time and never gain any unwanted weight?
I know the secret!
It's not at all what you think. It isn't a pill or supplement. It isn't a special drink or shakes. It isn't even metabolism-boosting food.
It has to do with frequency. The frequency of eating, and the frequency of movement. Also the status of hydration and even sleep.
I am Dietitian Lindsey and I want to share the claims and realities of metabolism...
Claim: Our metabolism or metabolic rate can not change.
Reality: The metabolism does have a genetic influence, however through strength training muscle mass can increase and improve metabolic rates.
Claim: Eating certain foods will increase metabolism.
Reality: There are no magic foods to increase metabolism. Green tea and hot chili peppers may give a temporary metabolic boost, but it is insignificant.
Claim: Eating late at night slows the metabolism.
Reality: There is very little evidence to support that eating after a certain time affects metabolism. Overeating and mindless eating at any time of the day or night can lead to unwanted weight gain.
Claim: Very low-calorie diets, Intermittent Fasting, and skipping meals will jumpstart weight loss.
Reality: Creating a large calorie deficit in attempts to lose weight can backfire by slowing down its metabolic rate. The human body is programmed for survival. Severely limiting calories can make your body think it's entering a famine. Your body adapts to the restricted caloric intake and uses fewer calories to perform the same tasks. Resist the urge to diet and instead prioritize healthful foods, including whole grains, legumes, vegetables and fruits, and fun physical activity.
The key to promoting a fast metabolism is to focus on healthy lifestyle changes. Healthy habits like small, frequent, nourishing meals and snacks paired with physical activity. As a licensed registered dietitian I can help support and guide you to incorporate these healthy changes into your lifestyle. Check out my Get Healthy Weight Loss Program today!
