Losing weight is a constant work in progress and it is a lifestyle change. There is no magic pill, however, there are things you can work on each and everyday to better your chances! Dr. Oz has a wonderful explanation of how the metabolism works. Your metabolism can be your best friend when working properly, but if it is sluggish and running as slow as molasses then it can be your own worst enemy. SO you guessed it, you need to rev your metabolism to achieve successful weight loss! Below is Dr. Oz description of what your metabolism does for you:
What Is Metabolism?
Metabolism is the process by which the body breaks down food to produce energy. When youâ€™re young, muscle mass stores up energy, preventing weight gain. However, with age, we lost that muscle, which gives way to more body fat. By the time you hit 40, your metabolism starts to slow down 5% every decade, making weight loss particularly challenging.
Dr. Ozâ€™s 3 Breakthrough Metabolism Boosters
White bean extract blocks starch and prevents carbs from being absorbed in the body. Studies show if you absorb fewer calories, youâ€™ll lose fat and your metabolism will speed up. Take one tablet each day before a meal.
2. L-Arginine Supplement
L-Arginine is an amino acid that helps build muscles and revs metabolism.
3. Pickled Peppers
These inexpensive treats pack a double punch at boosting your metabolism. First, the acid in the vinegar helps prevent fat storage in the body. Second, peppers contain capsaicin, the compound that makes them hot and also helps your body burn more energy. Eat pickled peppers in the morning â€“ try mixing them into scrambled eggs â€“ and theyâ€™ll provide a metabolism surge to carry you through the day.
