WHAT NOT TO DO If You Want to Increase Your Metabolism

30/08/2021

As catchy as the title sounds, keep in mind that it’s not technically about increasing metabolism per se—it’s about allowing it to function optimally without clogging it up through suboptimal diet and lifestyle choices, which I’m discussing below. Metabolism isn’t just about burning calories or increasing our basal metabolic rate (although I provide a few tips on that, too). This is about something far more important—preventing metabolic dysfunction. To encourage long-term optimal metabolic health, doing nothing but following the five recommendations below will not only…

27/08/2021

More than 3 million Americans are affected by anemia. While rarely a deadly condition, anemia is still a serious health concern that can have a ripple effect throughout the body.

12 best breakfasts for weight loss to keep you full until lunch

19/08/2021

The optimum breakfast for weight loss doesn’t have to be boring, bland or the least appetising option. To lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit, yes, but fat loss is all about your overall calorie consumption and expenditure across your day, week, and month – not just one meal. It makes sense, then, that the healthier your diet is in general the easier it is to achieve a calorie deficit; you can turn any meal you love into a…

We’ve all gone to bed at a reasonable time with the best of intentions to get an incredible night’s sleep. We need it! We’ve been so stressed and we deserve to feel better tomorrow, so we lie down only to be met with tossing and turning, accelerated heartbeat, a nervous feeling in the chest, and shallow breathing.
