I'm going to share with you a simple trick that will boost your metabolism significantly and help you to shed pounds of weight and you can start today that I learned from the Metabolic Cooking - Fat Loss Cookbook.

So What Is This Secret?

Well I've got two for you today but actually they aren't so secret; in fact, they're blatantly obvious. But often it's the MOST obvious things which we don't try out or that we look past.

I'll start by talking about the current way most "normal" people eat food. generally 3 meals, not counting the snacks they sneak in between the meals because they get too hungry to wait. By the time most people get to their daily meals you often hear them say "I'm starving" or "I can't wait for breakfast/lunch/dinner".

Now what is wrong with this picture?

What's wrong here is that most people are, on a subtle level, depriving their body of food and then gorging on food through out the day. You are going through miniature fasts, which make your body crave food and when your cravings come in you will go straight for all the worst foods for you to try and feed the craving. Once dinner time arrives you will likely overeat. This whole style of eating treats food more as something to stop craving than a fuel. Here's the mindset shift that we need:

*Food as fuel rather than as something to satisfy our cravings.

Food is fuel, there is no escaping this fact. We need it to function. But so often we abuse food and treat it as a drug. Not that you can't eat what you enjoy eating, but if you are eating food because you are craving it rather than your hungry and would like to enjoy some food then you have created an addiction of sorts. I can remember not eating for hours and getting so hungry that my cravings would kick in and I'd order a whole pizza for myself.

How can we combat this way of eating?

So here's the secret, breaking up your meals into 5 to 6 smaller meals throughout the day will cut down your craving significantly and give you much more energy. this is treating food as fuel. Eating a meal that is roughly the size of your fist 5 to 6 times per day will significantly speed up your metabolism, make you look and feel healthier, and diminish cravings and boost your energy.This is the scientifically proven way to speed up metabolism and it's pretty common sense if you think about it. You are not overeating and you are giving your body more fuel and more energy so it can burn fat faster. You will also start to digest food faster and this will speed up your metabolism also.

My second secret is this, never wait until you are very hungry, and especially starving, to eat a meal. when we are really hungry our cravings kick in and we make what are known as emotional eating decisions. this means we eat what we crave because we want to satisfy these cravings. Do we even feel good after eating like this? No not really, maybe you can recall a time when you rally desired a food and afterward you just felt sick thought you could never touch that food again. That is until tomorrow when the craving will return. So this is very important, if you imagine a scale from 1 to 10, 10 being starving and 1 being quite full, you should aim to eat when your at around 6. this will help you to eat the right foods and stay on course with your diet.

If you want to actually know what the foods are that will speed up your metabolism so fast you'll be shedding pounds then you Should really check out the Metabolic Cookbook

Grocery Store Savvy PDF Print E-mail

By Kimberly Coventry

For most of us, the majority of the food we eat comes from groceries we have stocked in our kitchen. So if we can learn to be grocery store savvy, then the quality of food we put in our bodies will improve greatly. Here our four simple tips to help you get started in the right direction today.

Bring a List

First, before you even head out to the grocery store, take a quick inventory of any items you are running low on. To save even more time, jot them down on a piece of paper or in your smart phone as you run out of them throughout the week. Pick a few recipes for the upcoming week and add any additional ingredients needed to your list. Grab your recyclable bags and you are ready to go!

Shop the Perimeter

Next, focus on shopping the perimeter of the grocery store. This is where the majority of the fresh items are-produce, fish, meat, etc. Remember that anything you buy in the center aisles is packaged. Obviously you will need some packaged items such as brown rice or frozen veggies, but this should make up the smallest amount of groceries in your cart. What should be the focal point? Produce. Budget-permitting, stock up on as manay fruits and vegetables as possible.

Reading Labels

When making decisions on which brand to purchase, do not refer to the front packaging as your guide. Slogans such as "all natural," "heart healthy," or "cholesterol-friendly," are marketing tactics to get you to buy their product. Instead, turn to the label on the back where the ingredients are listed. Your goal is to choose items that have five ingredients or less and you can recognize all of the words. One exception to this is if the word "spices" is listed, which is a vague ingredient term allowed for over 15,000 different chemicals.

Local or Organic

The final step is the icing on the cake (figuratively, of course)! Check the prices on the organic version of all items and try to buy as much as you can afford. Organic food prices have dropped dramatically over the years, so compare to conventional products and stock up when you can. Also, keep an eye out for local-this is the best quality out there. If you see organic or local items on sale, take advantage. Local farmers markets are often the most affordable way to go in this regard. Stop by one and you will be amazed!

Although it may seem time-consuming to adopt a healthy lifestyle, it really just takes a bit of preparation and commitment. By taking the time to obtain grocery store savvy, you will ensure your kitchen is always stocked with delicious and healthy choices.
