We have been eating all sort of bad food just to please our taste buds; as a result our metabolisms are disturbed. Proper metabolisms help us burn fats, but if not, then it will slow down your fat burning process and you might feel sluggish entire day. Now the good news is, there are few things which can be followed to improve your metabolism again. Dr. John Douillard has some tips on boosting our metabolism, which can turn your body into an ultimate fat burning machine. If we follow these ideas, along with some increase in workouts and consuming a balanced diet, you shall see amazing results.
Grapefruit help us to quickly boost our metabolism. No doubt it tastes bitter, but even then Dr. Douillard suggests on having one or two grapefruits each day, most preferably in the morning. You can sweeten it up in the next step, if you don't like the taste.
Raw honey helps keep our blood sugar levels normal. Make sure we are using raw honey; only raw honey can benefit us for our metabolism.
It's always been said that drink a lot of water, but important is to know when and how much to drink. According to Dr. Douillard, it is important to drink about 16 ounce (30 ml) of water 20 minutes before every meal. It will help us improve our metabolisms and decrease appetite.
Well, there's good news for bread lovers, mostly we are stopped from eating breads, because they contain gluten that makes us feel sluggish and might freeze our weight loss. But not all breads are needed to be avoided. We are free to have sourdough rye breads which actually help keep our insulin levels normal. So be happy for we don't have to cut bread out of our diets.
His advice is to start every meal with the vinegar. That helps our blood sugar and insulin levels. It can be consumed as a dressing for salad. If we do not like vinegar, it can be replaced with lemon juice.
To drink green tea during our meal is highly recommended. It contains caffeine that will help in digestion, while the nutrients in the tea will work as antioxidants. It also helps decrease fat absorption.
It's important to consume certain spices in our meals, like cayenne, pepper, ginger and turmeric. These things add good flavors to our meal, as well as help in slow sugar absorption and burn extra calories.
Dr. Douillard suggested sipping on hot water after every 10 to 15 minutes throughout the day. It acts as a digestive cleanse. It also helps hydrate us if we are dehydrated. He said; try it for a day to see how it feels.
Increasing the fiber intake in our meal, will help cleaning the system. Regular bowel moments are important. It is suggested to add a table spoon of ground flax or chia seeds to our meals.
Beets help flush our liver and gallbladder and can improve digestion. Consuming one serving of raw shredded beets everyday can help improve health and metabolism.
