Frustrated dieters simply need to fire up their metabolism.
Simply, metabolism is the way your body uses calories from the food you eat. The speed at which it does so is called your metabolic rate. Everyone who likes to eat wants to have a speedy metabolism so that they can burn food for energy without storing it as fat, which is what happens when the metabolic rate is slow. Unfortunately, the body's natural tendency is to slow the metabolism and store food as fat, causing weight gain.
Yet no one is doomed by these factors.
People who have a slow metabolism often blame their weight gain on their genes. Or their age. Or their inactive jobs. They don't realize that they can burn more calories by making relatively small changes in their diet and lifestyle. When you fire up your metabolism, you are not going on a diet, so there is no such thing as "cheating."
Our book gives you over 200 specific suggestions to incorporate into your individualized diet and daily menus. Lists and brands of specific foods will be used to guide followers.
Best of all, you don't have to use all of the tips to fire up your metabolism. You can simply pick and choose just a few of your favorite tips for each principle and still Fire up your metabolism and lose weight effortlessly.
This book is like no other nutrition book. As identical twins, we were able to use our genetics to our advantage. Each chapter is sprinkled with "twin trials"—stories of how one of us loses the "coin-flip" and has to be the nutritional guinea pig, not following our recommendations for jump starting the metabolism. Thus, we tested the science behind the nutrition. We had seen the great success of our clients who had followed our Fire up your metabolism principles, and now this was our opportunity to see just how much each principle keeps our own metabolism revved. Even we were shocked to see how much seemingly small changes affected our own metabolism.
