How Can I Boost My Metabolism?
If you’ve been wondering “How can I BOOST my Metabolism?” then this article is for you.
A Metabolism boost may come from working out. You’re probably thinking: “My doctor says I need to cut back on the run, but I just need a little more cardio. How do I boost my Metabolism and get the cardio I need?” The answer is simple – think back to your childhood.
The initial, and now legendary, Fat Head diet advised eating “Luscious Breakfast with Oats” – and I’m not talking about the cereal we all know and love. I’m talking about some of those delicious oat bars – those peanut butter sandwiches filled with a variety of things like fruit, nuts, cream cheese, granola, and oatmeal (yes, the magic words are oatmeal! ).
Let’s back up a bit and talk about the science of metabolism and why it’s important to keep blood sugar levels in check. The blood sugar level is really just a measure of the amount of glucose that enters your bloodstream (the fuel for our muscles and organs). The more glucose you have circulating in your blood, the better the body’s ability to burn fat.
The wrong level of glucose can lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. And there are actually foods that will sabotage your efforts to increase metabolism. One of the most notorious culprits is the sugary breakfast foods that are often listed on the breakfast menu at fast-food restaurants.
Forget the Chow Hall breakfast bar – instead, consider eating applesauce, bananas, and oatmeal. Yes, you read that right. After a busy day, try to drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins in your system. And, if you’re up for it, add in a glass of olive oil and some sunflower seeds.
“Greenies and Grainy Intake?” You don’t have to drop your olive oil intake to improve your health – it’s quite natural and great for you too!
What if you had some special “Luscious Breakfast with Oats” that came with a chocolate chip cookie? It’s almost as good as having an omelet with bacon and sauteed mushrooms!
Remember those greenies and grainy packets? Give it a shot – and you might just find a new favorite breakfast food.
Have you ever eaten some delectable rice cake with banana bread? That’s a much healthier breakfast than a Krispy Kreme donut – and a lot tastier too. If you’ve never tried it, you’re missing out on a lot of flavors.
If you’re still hungry after your Luscious Breakfast with Oats, then you can keep going and start thinking about a healthy, low-fat meal. Remember to also include plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables throughout the day.
What would you change to make your day (and metabolism) better? Which of these breakfast foods would you eat more of – or fewer of?
