10 Hacks to Jump Start Your Metabolism

I was conducting some worksite wellness seminars recently and a question was raised several times: “How do I jump-start my weight loss?” For each person the scenario was slightly different: “I lost weight a while ago, gained back a little that I just can’t seem to shed and the tactics I used before just aren’t working anymore,” “I never had to lose weight before, I turned 50 and all of a sudden it seems extra weight popped up especially around my middle,” “I exercise regularly, generally eat a healthy diet so I don’t know why I don’t lose weight,” “I follow a very strict diet but the weight won’t budge anymore, what can I do to get it started again?”

Whittle Your Waistline

You don’t have to give into mother nature. You can keep your waistline as you enter into peri-menopause or menopause. Four important factors are:

  1. Choose the right foods including plenty of lean proteins (lean meats, fish, poultry, non-fat dairy, legumes and other plant proteins), 5-9 servings of a variety of colorful veggies and fruits, and include 2-3 servings of whole grains daily such as steel-cut oats, stone ground corn, whole wheat, brown rice and quinoa. Skip the refined starches and sugars that hide in so many processed and fast foods, baked goods and sweetened beverages.
