Incredible Metabolism Boost #2: Foods That Put Your Body In A Fat-Burning Zone

Food To Burn Fat

You’ve heard that regular exercise can boost your metabolism, haven’t you? But did you know that the digestion of certain foods can naturally raise your body temperature and cause your metabolic rate to lift significantly enough to account for up to 10% of the energy your body uses?

Energy expended through digestion is referred to as the thermic effect and foods with higher thermic effects reduce your fat levels and boost your metabolism. Pretty simple, huh?

Foods That Increase Your Metabolism

Any guesses as to which foods have the most beneficial thermic effect? It probably won’t surprise you to learn that junk foods or processed carbohydrates aren’t going to do you any metabolic favours. But this might: nor will your ‘healthy’ carbs such as whole-grains or even fruits and vegetables.

Here’s the scoop:

Protein has the highest thermic effect, with about 25% of the actual food itself being used up during digestion. Not only this, but the ongoing effect of this, ahem, effect is to keep your metabolism elevated for at least several hours after eating and enable your body to better utilize stored body fat for energy. Carbohydrates, by comparison, use up only 6-8% of their own energy during digestion.

Rules For Sourcing Protein To Aid In Fat-Burning

  • Animal protein is preferable to vegetable due to its complete amino acid complex. Amino acids are crucial to all bodily functions, particularly a healthy metabolism
  • Choose organic or free-range protein sources wherever possible
  • Grass-fed meats are far superior to grain-fed
  • If you can follow the above rules then that’s a great start. It’s also ideal to include a variety of animal protein in your diet, including lamb, beef, game meats, poultry of all kinds, wild fish once or twice a week, and organic or free-range eggs
  • If you don’t fancy munching on meat or eggs all day long than try a quality organic protein shake such as Isagenix. You can read more about this product by checking out my detox journal here. Scroll down for the first article. These products taste great, and I’ve trialled them successfully with clients intolerant to lactose, soy and gluten.

Pleas know that I’m not advocating you skip out on carbs altogether and live entirely on animal flesh (although truth be told, you’d be better off doing this than the other way around). But it’s certainly some interesting food for thought, isn’t it? And maybe just another reason why seasonal eating could be so crucial to your health and weight management.

In fact, one study I read on this topic, from Arizona State University, actually showed that participants’ metabolism rates were twice as fast after a protein meal than after a carb one. If that doesn’t make you think twice about that plain old salad for lunch then I don’t know what will.

I’m out – gotta go and eat my eggs with organic sausages!

Remember –

Life is Now. Press Play!

You have an existing business which makes money, delivers a fabulous product or service (or multiple of!) which helps people, you know who you are and who you’re here to serve (while always welcoming deeper clarity!), and you have a proven track record for getting results to those people … even if it’s on a scale, so far, which, frankly, you consider outrageous. Since you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world!

Oh, speaking of which – you know you’re here to do insanely big work in the world! And you’re ready to put the wheels on that NOW, and see your revenue – your growth of soulmate audience – your soul-led result-gettin’ systems – and all in all your own badassery – explode, stat!
