We have given you some top tips to feeling your best this summer. So start today by making small changes and adopted healthy habits for your mind, body and soul.
Metabolism Boosting Superfoods
Start adding these into your daily diet, such as pineapple, this delicious fruit not only refreshes you in summer, but it takes a significant amount of energy to burn, whilst providing you with essential nutrients. Citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruit are also great, due to their vitamin C content which helps metabolize fat faster. Omega-3s are a saviour, they balance blood sugar and reduce inflammation, which in turn helps to regulate metabolism. Add oily fish, flaxseed oil, walnuts and avocados for a brilliant boost of Omega-3.
Power Up Your Protein
Eating protein helps to preserve muscle mass during weight loss, keeping metabolism running at full speed. For non-meat eaters, try quinoa, lentils and eggs, which are all great high-protein options. We love lentils thrown into curries to provide a yummy dose of protein.
Say No To Trans Fats
This one may seem obvious, but put that tub of Ben and Jerry’s down! Trans fats physically bind themselves to fat and liver cells which slows our metabolism right down. Consuming trans fats can also lead to insulin resistance and inflammation, which can both wreak havoc on our metabolic rate.
