I want a slower metabolism–said no one ever! Yet, many of us have been easily tricked by supplements marketed as being the magic pill for a speedy metabolism and rapid weight loss. However, if there literally was a magic pill, we would all be the exact shape and size we dream to be. Since there isn’t a magic pill, there are things we can be mindful of when it comes to starting each day on the right foot. And by the right foot, we mean getting our metabolisms revved up sooner than later each morning.
Here are 4 Ways to Boost Your Metabolism in the Morning-
Catch ALL the zzzzzz’s
First and foremost, you need a good amount of sleep for your body to function optimally. One in three American adults doesn’t get enough sleep on a regular basis—and level of sleep deprivation can have a serious effect on your metabolism. Catch those eight hours, or whatever the amount of sleep is that you feel your best at, because hey, you know your body better than anyone else does. We don’t need you being grumpy either.
Start with Protein
Protein is harder for the body to digest. Consuming protein two hours within waking up can increase your body’s metabolic rate by 15 to 30 percent for up to two hours after eating. We recommend about 20 to 30 grams of protein each morning, grass-fed whey protein, EBOOST PRIME sits right in the middle at 25g of protein per serving. It also comes in vanilla or chocolate too. We suggest making it simple and making a protein smoothie in the morning.
Sip on Some Caffeine
And no not coffee. We had a couple products that are perfect when it comes to adding a little boost to your morning. Since caffeine is proven to increase your body’s ability to burn calories by up to 11 percent, we think our SUPER POWDER is the perfect choice to start your morning off with. Not only does it give you a boost with caffeine it also gives the body important vitamins and minerals it needs, while aiding in your ability to focus for the day. If you are someone that likes to workout first thing in the morning, then our POW is our prework that adds a bit more caffeine to your morning and boosts you a bit more in preparation for a nice workout. SUPER POWDER offers your body 110mg per serving and POW offers your body 175mg per serving.
HIIT It Up
Realy any time of workout in the morning is going to boost your metabolism but HIIT does an even better job because it works your aerobic and anaerobic systems. HIIT encourages your body to burn fat for fuel and use the glucose in your muscles for energy. Due to the nature of this process, the metabolism is elevated for the next 24 hours after a HIIT workout. You get a caloric burn even when you are not working out. Win-win!
