Women: 6 Nutritional Tips to Help Boost your Metabolism for Fast Summer Fat Loss

The summer is….almost here. And you need officially declare war on that stubborn fat. One of the key ways or burning more calories throughout the day is to raise your metabolism. Lets look at some interesting ways of doing this:


Metabolism Tip #1: Eat More Spices

According to the Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology, eating certain spices leads to a temporary metabolism spike of about 23 percent. This doesn’t mean that you should go to your local Indian restaurant and eat extra spicy food.

Simply take your regular, healthy meals and turn them from bland to hot. Give them some flavor. You’ll not only enjoy your foods more, but you’ll also burn a few extra calories along the way (while you eat).

Metabolism Tip #2: Drink some Coffee

A study published in Physiology and Behavior found that individuals who drink caffeinated coffee increased their metabolism rate by 16 percent. So not only does coffee wake you up in the morning, it also boosts your metabolic rate.

The way this works is that coffee actually stimulates your central nervous system by increasing your heart rate and breathing. It’s almost like your working out! But don’t overdo coffee. There are also some down sides to excessive coffee consumption.

Metabolism Tip #3: Consume Iron

Iron is important. Iron helps carry oxygen to your muscles. If your muscles don’t get enough oxygen, your energy levels fall, and your workouts suffer. Your metabolic rate suffers as well. Women lose a lot of iron during their periods each month.

So eat iron. When you hit the grocery stores search for iron-fortified products. Eat more beans, spinach, and broccoli.

Metabolism Tip #4: Eat More Fat

I’m talking about Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These healthy fats tell your brain that you’re full, meaning you’ll feel fuller, longer. You can get healthy fats from a variety of sources including fish, nuts, and olive oil.

Metabolism Tip #5: Grab some Green Tea

A recent study showed that individuals who drank 3-5 cups of green tea per day for 12 weeks lost 4.6 percent of their bodyweight. Other studies indicated drinking two to four cups of green tea per day may help burn up to an extra 50 calories.

50 calories may not seem like a lot, but when you’re trying to burn off stubborn fat, every little bit helps. You can drink your coffee in the morning, and green tea later in the day during lunch.

Metabolism Tip #6: Stay Away from Contaminated Foods

I’m talking about going organic. Now, in recent years, many companies have been putting “organic” labels on their products that aren’t really organic. That means you need to do your research. Stores such as Whole Foods are a good place to start.

You don’t need to make a full, 100% transition to organic food. Eating clean in general helps a lot. Think of your body as an engine. You don’t want to put junk oil into that engine. You want the best stuff to make it work as smoothly as possible.

Make these simply tips to your nutrition and you’ll start to notice some decent fat loss within a few weeks. Combine these tips with a solid training program, and you’re on your way to achieving your goals.

The Truth About Fat Loss Nutrition

Do you feel like you are busting your butt in the gym and not getting the results you deserve?

Listen, we have to fix your nutrition. No more foods from a bag or a box. Switch over to more fruits and vegetables.

Now I know you’re not just going to wake up and eat 10 servings of vegetables tomorrow. Besides, your stomach and co-workers wouldn’t appreciate it.

But you have to make little changes every day, week, month & year. We can always get better. So this weekend, start with one new item from the produce aisle to help control your appetite, regulate your blood sugar, and burn body fat.

If you want to lose fat, live longer & healthier, and have more mental and physical energy to get through your day, you need to put
premium fuel in your body’s engine.

Not grease. Not sugar. Not quick fixes. You have to plan ahead. But don’t worry, it doesn’t take much time.

Start by eating several small meals each day, focusing on protein and fiber-rich foods.

Combine that with the short, convenient Turbulence Training workouts and you’ll feel like a million bucks.

We are all a work in progress, so never give up on your ability to change your body at any age. Nutrition & exercise are as powerful as
the drugs your doctors are handing out.

So fight back against aging and body fat naturally.

7 Ways to Set up a Beach Body 10 Minute Workout

You’re less than 90 days away from the summer. But you’ve got work or school (or both). You just don’t have the time to spend 30-40 minutes on a quick workout.

Well, I’m going to show you a way to… no, I’m going to show you 7 ways to set up a really super quick 10-minute workout you can do to drop weight and reveal a great beach body.

Method #1

  • Step One: Choose one upper body exercise and one lower body exercise
  • Step Two: Perform the first movement for 60 seconds, rest 15 seconds. Perform the second movement for 60 seconds, rest 15 seconds.
  • Step Three: Repeat this cycle 3 more times for a total of 4 rounds.

Method #2:

  • Step One: Choose one upper body and one lower body exercise
  • Step Two: Choose repetitions where the two number add up to 30 total repetitions. For example, you can do 15 reps for each movement. Or 10 repetitions for one movement and 20 repetitions for the other movement.
  • Step Three: Perform each exercise back to back with no rest. Then rest 60 seconds.
  • Step Four: Repeat this cycle 2 more times for a total of 3 rounds. You are doing a total of 90 repetitions. I have found that 120 repetitions, depending on the movement, takes around 10 minutes to complete, without rest periods. So for a beginners with rest periods, you should shoot for 90 to 100 total repetitions for your 10 minute workout.

Method #3:

  • Step One: Choose one upper body pushing exercise (such as pushups), one upper body pulling exercise (such as pullups) and one lower body movement.
  • Step Two: Perform each movement for 30 seconds, followed by a 10 second rest. Move through each repetitions one after the other.
  • Step Three: Perform 5 total rounds.

Method #4:

  • Step One: Choose 10 exercises – 3 upper body push, 3 upper body pull, and 4 lower body
  • Step Two: Perform 10 repetitions of each movement
  • Step Three: Go through each exercise in a row, without rest. This should take you less than 10 minutes sinces it’s only 100 repetitions total.

Method #5:

  • Step One: Choose 1 upper body and 1 lower body exercise
  • Step Two: Perform each movement for 45 seconds, followed by a 15 second rest.
  • Step Three: Perform 5 total rounds.

Method #6:

  • Step One: Choose 1 cardio movement such as jump roping, shadowboxing, or sledgehammer swings. Choose 5 additional movements – 2 upper body push, 2 upper body pull, and 1 lower body
  • Step Two: Perform 1 minute of the cardio movement, followed by 1 minute of an additional movement. Follow up with another 1 minute of the cardio movement, and perform 1 minute of the other movement.
    • Here’s a sample:
      • 1 minute Cardio
      • 1 minute Upper Body Push
      • 1 minute Cardio
      • 1 minute Upper Body Pull
      • 1 minute Cardio
      • 1 minute Lower Body
      • 1 minute Cardio
      • 1 minute Upper Body Push
      • 1 minute Cardio
      • 1 minute Upper body Pull

Method #7:

  • Step One: Choose 1 upper body exercise and 1 lower body exercise
  • Step Two: Perform 50 repetitions of each movement, back to back

Choose one of these methods and get started on creating your own 10 – minute workout. If you want to save even more time, then I suggest you grab one of the following short, intense 4-week workout plans created by Craig Ballantyne:
