Metabolism Boosting Recipes

Part of the weight loss journey is diet – consuming nutrient dense, whole foods that fuel your body and power your brain!

Protein plays a key role here, as it has an effect on a number of hormones. Protein stimulates production of the growth hormones IGF-1 and glucagon. IGF-1 increases muscle mass and glucagon promotes the burning of fat to provide energy. Glucagon’s main function is to increase blood sugar if it’s falling (from fasting or calorie deficit) – and when it’s released, the effect is less fat storage and increased fat burn.

Here are 3 delicious recipes that include sufficient amounts of protein along with healthy fats, fiber, and essential nutrients to help optimize your metabolism.
