8 Uncommon Ways That Boost Your Metabolism

Boost Your Metabolism

Boost Your Metabolism

You already know that a healthy diet and regular exercise will boost your metabolism and improve weight loss. But, here are uncommon yet amazing ways which can greatly help too.

1. Turn your electronic screen’s brightness down and turn off lights before going to bed. Artificial lights interrupt the production of melatonin- the sleep hormone, which then causes insomnia and prevents the body from resting. This lowers your metabolic rate and hinders proper body functions.

2. Get used to the cold. Lower the temperature in your room to about 20 degrees Celsius or leave the windows open. Studies show that cold temperatures stimulate “good” fat production that helps your body try to warm up, and burn “bad” fats.

3. Consume extra virgin olive oil. The fats in olive oil are not only healthy, they also help you feel less hungry.

4. Don’t torture yourself with exercise. Avoid strenuous routines that last for hours. Fitness scientists have discovered that people who do short but intensive workouts burn 200 calories more.

5. Add mustard to your food. Eating at least 1 teaspoon of mustard a day boosts your metabolism for up to 25% several hours after consumption.

6. Try matcha tea. Japanese matcha tea is best for people who want to improve their metabolism and health. This tea helps improve metabolic rate and contains a high concentration of antioxidants.

7. Try aromatherapy sessions. This helps quicken your metabolism, reduce your appetite, lighten your mood, and improve your digestion. Recommended oils are mint, grapefruit, bergamot, cinnamon, lemon, and ginger.

8. Smile and laugh more. Smiling and laughing not only improves your mood, but it can also help burn more calories. Laughing for as much as 10 minutes per day can burn fat and improve health. Studies also show that a genuine laughter causes 10-20% increase in energy expenditure (burned calories).

9 Foods That Help Boost Metabolism

Increasing your metabolism plays a major role in losing weight. A faster metabolism helps you with digestion and even helps burn fat while you are sleeping.

Here are foods that help boost metabolism while maintaining a healthier lifestyle:

Ginger– used as a digestive aid since ancient times. It soothes the stomach and reduces inflammation in the digestive tracts which contributes to a flatter and healthier-looking tummy. Chop into a stir fry or drink as a tea in order to fully gain its effects.

Green Tea– one of its ingredients is caffeine, a stimulant that raises your heart rate and compels your system to burn calories faster. Aim for three 8-ounce cups a day.

Coffee– same as the green tea, its caffeine increase your metabolism. It can also jump-start lipolysis, the breakdown of fat in the body. Drink at least 1 or 2 cups a day.

Spices– cayenne, garlic, cinnamon, etc. Spices are one of the best ways to keep your metabolic rates high. Some spices such as black pepper, mustard seeds, powdered onion enable the body to burn up to 1,000 more calories daily.

Asparagus– high in vitamin B which naturally aids a healthy metabolism. It is also high in fiber and other antioxidants, helping you maintain your insulin levels and keep you feeling fuller for longer.

Berries– full of beauty-boosting antioxidants and packed with fiber essential for staving off hunger pangs.

Olive Oil– healthy monosaturated fats like olive oil can actually aid the body in burning calories. But, to get a benefit, you have to replace other types of fat like cream or butter with olive oil and consume it in limited quantities.

Coconut water– a super-hydrator that helps disrupt your metabolism.

Water– because your body cannot burn calories efficiently when dehydrated. Drink at least 8-ounce glasses a day.

Be sure to compliment these foods with a healthy lifestyle and a good exercise routine to gain lasting benefits.

fast metabolism diet reviews

One of the main highlights why the fast metabolism diet was popular among other diet plans over the market is that, it focuses on healing up your metabolism rather than depriving you of foods to eat. It confuses and keep guessing your metabolism of what food it would received every meal. Thus, keeping your metabolism on fire as it heals your “five major players”.

We’ve read several fast metabolism diet reviews on how the lives of fast metabolism dieters was changed, how it boost up their self-confidence, and how they were able to attain a healthier and fitter body through this diet. Now that we’ve heard  the reviews from the fast metabolism dieters, let’s take a look what does the diet experts have to say about this diet plan. Would they also recommend the fast metabolism diet to their patients as a weight loss program?

“The FMD diet seems like a new way to think about an old concept: eating a diet of whole foods.” – Sarah Waybright, owner/founder of WhyFoorWorks LLC.

Sarah Waybright expressed that Americans were too fond of eating refined, nutrient-poor foods and juices that contains a lot of carbohydrates, wheat, corn, sugar and fake ingredients that slows and kills our metabolism. According to Dr. Sarah, what Dr. Haylie did was brilliant. She eliminated and banned these fake ingredients and replaced these man-made juices into natural foods that is rich in fiber and micronutrients, but low in calories.

“It’s best to learn how to plan a balanced, moderate, nutrient-dense diet that’s based on a variety of whole, unprocessed foods and that fits your own individual needs and dietary preferences.” – Dr. Lehmann

Dr. Lehmann strongly agreed with Dr. Haylie’s principle of eating natural and organic foods and stop taking in additives, preservatives, hormones, etc that could slow down your metabolism and your liver’s job in burning fats. You can only heal and keep your metabolism on fire  by staying away from toxic chemicals. However, she also emphasized that eating organic foods is not an excuse to choose eating unhealthy foods. You still need to choose healthy foods to eat. She even said that she would rather eat a handful of organic vegetables than eating a handful of organic cookies!

Jasmine Jafferali, a lifestyle and wellness consultant also agreed with Haylie’s choice of organic products and foods than the unnatural foods.

While there are some parts of the diet plans that diet experts doesn’t agree with, only one thing is for sure. That food is indeed our medicine and that through eating natural foods we can attain a healthier and fitter body! So if you wanted to change your life and have a healthy lifestyle, start eating natural and organic foods now and keep yourself away from these fake, toxic, man-made foods!

Note: We didn’t altered/edited the following statements. What you’ll read here is the exact statements our fast metabolism dieters submitted to us.

“Hi. I am very pleased with the results of the diet. I have been on it now for two months. I am a senior woman with a bad knee so I cannot exercise as much as I would like but even so, I have lost over 15 lbs. This is the first success in dieting for me so needless to say I am very happy. Being unable to walk long distances or do much in the way of physical exercise limits my ability to use up a lot of energy but the Fast Metabolism Diet has allowed me to wear my clothes with more comfort and to lose the excess weight that had accumulated over the past two years.
Thank you so much.
A happy dieter.” –
Frieda H. Byrd

“Last spring I was at a baby shower and a relative told me about the FMD. Even though she was at a party she was eating a wonderful variety of foods from the luncheon buffet. I went home that night night ordered the book and spent the next week digesting everything I read. It all made sense. My 60th birthday was two months away and I was determined to loose some weight as I didn’t want to be an over weight grandma who couldn’t keep up with the grandkids. I had tried many diets and nothing seemed to make a difference. Both my husband and I love to cook and cook healthy so the diet was a great fit. We made a shopping list and a menu calendar for the week. We spent a weekend cooking and freezing and we were ready! In the first 28 days I lost 18 lbs and felt great and best of all my blood work showed that my cholesterol was finally under control. On maintenance (I eat all the foods all week) I have lost a total of 22 lbs. I am so grateful for this plan and now have 5 converts. Two of them are in my office which makes it so much fun because we share recipes and tips. We all use the app and read the blog. Thank you Haylie!” – Phyllis

” Lost 17 lbs first 26 days
Celebrating with wine Tonite !!! ( drank the whole bottle )
Cooked 32 meals for next 2 weeks while “celebrating” today.
No guilt here ..
Next 28 starts Monday
30 lbs to go” – Charlene Knight

“In February, I found myself on the edge of an unhealthy abyss. I had struggled with weight issues for years, brought on by unhealthy eating, off and on dieting, and the effects of multiple sclerosis that had limited my physical abilities and caused near constant fatigue. My weight had reached 275 pounds and my MS was winning its battle against my body. I was also fighting high blood pressure, high cholesterol and a heart arrhythmia. Let’s just say I didn’t see a long life ahead of me. And I was getting tired of buying larger clothes!
That’s when I heard about The Fast Metabolism Diet from former colleagues. At first read, it seemed intimidating and the thought of giving up cheese, chocolate and caffeine was not appealing. But I knew I had to make a change for me to have a future. So I jumped in and collaborated with friends to have a support system. My weight loss came fast initially. Then I hit the plateaus. Along the way, the “diet” faded away and it became my way of living.
As I lost weight, my health got better. No more high blood pressure or cholesterol. The heart arrhythmia went away. My MS was completely under control. My neurologist said to keep doing whatever it was that I was doing as there were no visible signs of the disease and my fatigue was gone.
As friends saw my physical transformation, many joined the FMD team. I was proud to introduce them to something that had changed my life. I was moved by one friend who works as a cancer research nurse. She started the diet because of me and began sharing the diet with her patients. I began to see how FMD could change so many lives besides my own.
Today, I’m physically active. I’m working out five times a week because this plan helped me get to where I can. I started running recently and plan to run a half marathon for my birthday in January.
The weight loss has been awesome. I weigh 205 pounds today. The weight is important. It was holding me back and contributing to myriad health issues. But more important is how I feel. I have more energy. I like what I see in the mirror. I love the foods I eat. I rarely miss my old bad habits or foods that slow down my metabolism.
I am proud to be an FMD disciple. It changed my life and I’ve seen it do the same for others. Nothing in life is easy. But the FMD plan makes it that way if you’ll give it an honest go.” – Jeff Holeman.

The Fast Metabolism Diet Life Changing Series Part 2

As a celebration of the launching of our community website, we have featured the compelling part 2 of the fast metabolism diet life changing series!

fast metabolism diet life changing series

Note: We didn’t alter/edited the following statements. What you’ve read here are the exact statements our fast metabolism dieters submitted to us.

I have been trying to lose weight for several years. Once I finally got my thyroid levels correct I started to lose weight very slowly. Then a friend of mine on SparkPeople.com. which a social network for people who are trying to lose weight in a healthy way. Anyway, she kept blogging about how she was losing weight just by eating according to the FMD plan. I was really skeptical at first but the more she blogged about it the more I wanted to try it. I finally bought the book and I lost 10 pounds the first 28 days with minimal exercise. The 2nd 28 days I lost 15 pounds doing more exercise but still according to the guidelines in the book. I have a lot of endocrine issues due to a brain tumor that I had removed when I was young. I’m happy to say now that I have taken off more than 33 pounds. I love the eating plan! I feel better mentally and physically. I sleep better and am probably the happiest I’ve ever been. I went from a size 10 to a size 2. I still can’t believe I can wear a size 2! Doing the Fast Metabolism Diet was/is the best think I could have ever done for myself. After seeing my success with the Fast Metabolism Diet my doctor said she was going to do it herself. 🙂 My mom just started the eating plan too. Thank you so much for writing the book, Haylie!!”

One year ago, I started the FMD. My mother-in-law thought I might like the book–she knew I was trying to lose weight and get in control of my diabetes. My sugars were on the rise and my doctor said I’d need to go on medication unless something changed drastically.

I have done so many fad diets in my life that I had all but given up on my metabolism. Nothing seemed to work anymore. I was discouraged and depressed. Especially because I thought I was eating pretty darned healthy already.

But . . .

I read the book. I decided to make it a game. I knew some things would be hard (e.g. giving up cheese, nuts, and scotch every night as a snack) but I’m very competitive. I told myself I could win.

I didn’t cheat along the way. I stuck to the plan. I still do.

It’s been one year of eating healthy, exercising, and gaining control of my health to the extent that I can control it.

I’ve lost 50+ pounds to date. My pant size went from a 36-inch waist to a 30-inch waste. And, though it’s all in my mind . . . I feel taller.

I’m 46. I now weigh what I did in high school. I should have saved my high school clothes. They’re back in style and they’d fit me now. For fun, the other day I put on my high school choir tuxedo jacket and it fit me. Crazy.

My body was weak. I hated exercise. Not anymore. I used to not be able to even do one chin-up. Now, I have a chin-up bar in my office that gets regular use. I look forward to exercise and weight training.

My sugars are amazing. My doctor says to keep doing whatever it is I’m doing.

What I’m doing is sticking to this new lifestyle. I eat amazing food. I eat plenty. I enjoy my life. I look great. I feel great. Opps, gotta go. Time for a snack and some water. Thank you, Haylie!”

I started FMD at the beginning of September. After my first round of 28 days I had lost 10 lbs. I feel better, my clothes are getting looser and I don’t look at this as a “Diet” because that word usually means something bad or restrictive, I look at this as a new way of eating and I am so happy. My husband has joined me on this journey and we are making our children aware of the choices that they are making as well. I am excited because this is just the beginning, I still have about 60lbs to go but for the first time in ages I feel like I can get to my goal weight!!1 Thanks so much to Hayllie and the FMD Team and to a great support group of friends in person and online!!!”
