Healthy weight loss can be a challenge, but Metabolism Ignite provides the natural boost you need to rev metabolism and balance key hunger hormones. Supporting your weight loss journey with healthy diet and lifestyle choices can make it work even better. Here are some protocols created by our in-house holistic nutritionist to help you get the very best results!
Consistency is key!
/ Take your Metabolism Ignite daily every morning
/ You’ll experience a decrease in hunger and cravings within just a few days and experience the full benefits of an increased metabolism within 8-12 weeks
Eat a whole foods nutrient dense diet
/ Focus on lean proteins (organic grass-fed meat, lentils and beans), high quality healthy fats (avocados, ghee, coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, nuts and seeds), whole grains, as well as fruits and vegetables that are many different colors of the rainbow.
/ Consume whole, unprocessed foods such as fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients and fiber. They can help with satiety and maintain stable blood sugar levels.
/ Choose complex carbs that are rich in FIBER and slow burning – they won’t spike your blood sugar and insulin. Carbs fuel your gut with fiber, crush cravings, burn fat and keep you full longer. Try quinoa, sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, chia seeds, pumpkin, chickpeas, lentils and wild rice.
/ Add booster foods to your diet – such as miso, nutritional yeast, herbs and spices, seaweed as well as fermented foods and beverages (water kefir), tempeh, sauerkraut, and kimchi to aid in digestion.
/ Incorporate herbs + spices – they have tremendous superpowers including anti-inflammatory effects, aid in digestion and detoxification, and can help regulate blood sugar.
/ Stay Hydrated – drink filtered water, herbal teas, mineral broths and freshly pressed vegetable juices.
/ Start with a protein rich breakfast – this can be beneficial in aiding weight loss by helping with increased satiety, meaning you feel fuller longer. Consuming protein at breakfast can regulate appetite hormones such as ghrelin and peptide YY, which play roles in signaling hunger and feeling full. It can also reduce snacking, stabilize blood sugar levels and preserve lean muscle mass. Try our protein rich breakfast recipe below!

/ Turn off or silence devices to reduce distractions. Take a moment to clear your head and appreciate the food in front of you. Eating slowly and savoring your meals can prevent overeating.
Regular movement throughout the day is key for optimal health
/ Movement does not have to always be a traditional exercise. Good examples of movement and physical activity are walking, stretching, swimming, yoga, dance, interval training, strength training and pilates.
/ Chronic stress can lead to hormonal changes causing blood sugar and insulin levels to rise. Incorporate stress reducing techniques into your lifestyle such as breathwork, meditation, forest bathing, epsom salt baths and yoga.
