Metabolism is like a fire that burns inside of you, roasting calories. Did you know there are certain things you can do to fuel your metabolism and keep it roaring all day long? Metabolism rises or falls based on what signals you give it.
I went to a seminar yesterday for my day job and keeping metabolism roaring all day was one of the brief topics the speaker touched on, Dr. Robert K. Cooper.
When you live uber-stressed-out or in panic mode, it’s going to cause your body to think it’s about to trek across Siberia tonight and so it conserves every possible calorie for survival mode and stores it as fat.
Guilt is fattening; it triggers fat-storing hormones.
“Metabolism is how the brain and body make energy to be most engaged, attentive, alive, fit…”
Keeping your metabolism up will burn more fat, keep you more alert, and help you stay younger. Things you can do to keep your metabolism roaring all day must be done every 3 hours:
- Muscle toning, even a minute
- Stand up
- Glimpse bright light
- Sip cold water
- Bite of a healthy snack
- Changing posture
- Changing breathing
- Changing view
What are some ways that you keep your metabolism roaring? When you’re super stressed, do you notice even if you’re eating right that you don’t lose weight like you do when you’re more calm in general? What are some ways you stay out of painic-mode?
