I often envy people with a fast metabolism because it seems like they can eat all they want without gaining a pound while I feel like I can gain 5 pounds just by walking past a pastry shop. Anyways I have been trying to find a natural solution to this problem of a 'not so fast metabolism' not so that I can over indulge but so that my body does not resort to storing food as fat as easily.
In the last few weeks I made a few changes with great results, am I on to something? Here is what I did.
1. ALKALINE AND SPICE
In the last few weeks I've been drinking warm water with Lemon and Chilli powder before every meal not for weight loss but because I like it. Anyone that spends 5 minutes with me will notice my addiction to chilli powder. I like it on every thing from popcorn to chocolate; when the idea of adding half a teaspoon to my morning lemon drink came to mind I decided to try it and realised I actually liked the taste. Drinking this creates a thermic effect and help you process fat better instead of just storing them. It does not have to be lemon or chilli it could be apple cider vinegar and cinnamon or ginger, basically an alkaline drink like lime juice, lemon, apple cider vinegar and a hot spice like cinnamon, ginger, chilli etc. The downside to drinking this is that you will wee ALOT!
2. WALKING OR SLOW STEADY CARDIO
3. EAT RAW
Do you have a slow-ish metabolism, what have you tried to help speed it up and what has worked. I would like to hear from you.
Have a lovely weekend
