Mastering My Metabolism: Day 3

Here are some things I've done this week to give my metabolism a jump start (as suggested by Jillian Michaels):

  • Eat every four hours.
  • Don't eat carbs after 9 (it raises your insulin levels, so your body can't get into a deep sleep when it needs to, thus slowing your metabolism because you aren't getting good sleep).
  • Eat more organic foods.
  • Drink more water, adding to the 8 glasses a day, 1 glass per caffeinated beverage consumed.
  • Get moving daily, starting with 5 hours of strengthening/stretching exercises.
  • Eliminate High-fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, and BHA or BHT from diet.
Most of these things I already knew I should do. It's always good to get a reminder, though!
