JUMP- START YOUR METABOLISM. It begins with exercise—mainly aerobic activity, which burns calories and increases your metabolic rate and body heat. Letting yourself get too stressed from business and personal issues weakens your metabolism. Try getting more sleep. Great sleep supports a balanced metabolism and reduces fatigue during the day. People often reach for extra foods when they are fatigued—especially sugar and caffeine. Instead, look for supplements that support good metabolism such as carnitine, creatine, chromium and coenzyme Q10, which can be added to your basic nutritional intake.

EAT 6 SMALL MEALS A DAY.  You can also eat three moderate meals and two or three snacks. Make it simple with you foods and meals. Choose fresh fruits and vegetables with adequate amounts of quality protein. Food is your body’s fuel - nourish it throughout the day and you’ll find yourself maintaining good energy. Wake up in the morning to a protein shake and add fruits to have a good start to your day. Purchase a raw nut mix at a health food store and make snack size bags to take with you on the run. Eat a fruit or healthy food bar around mid-morning and at lunch eat a nice salad with chicken or fish. Around mid-afternoon, snack on some raw vegetables then a light dinner with some protein and steamed vegetables. Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and metabolism working. Take extra nutrients around your workouts including protein to help with recovery. This all helps you develop a sensible, long-term eating plan.

USE PORTION CONTROL. This is where discipline is most important. Having portion control is going to train your body to be satisfied with smaller meals and also allow for quicker and more efficient digestion of the food. Think of your stomach like a small balloon. If you fill your stomach with a large meal, it will expand itself to hold the food. The next time you eat, your stomach is going to tell you that it’s not satisfied until it has reached its previous full capacity. So make the portions small. Ever noticed that after you’ve missed a meal that you feel full eating less? That’s because your stomach has shrunk and needs less food to feel full. A great way to measure portions is by making sure that your servings are no bigger than your fist. When eating carbohydrates such as pastas, rice, or even vegetables, keep the portions to the size of your fist. Make sure that you consume only 6oz - 8oz portions of proteins such as chicken, fish, or red meat. This will keep you from having oversized meals. It’s obvious that excessive eating puts stress on the body and affects energy and sleep. When you consume more calories than you can burn, mainly those from sugars and carbohydrates, the extras are stored as fat. You especially need to limit your intake of simple sugars. Every cell in your body and brain needs sugar to function properly and for energy, but this doesn’t just come from sugar because you convert everything from protein and oil-rich foods into this basic fuel. Instead, you need a balanced diet of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Finding balance with the right amount of food for each of you is key to weight management and long-term health.
