One of the articles gives alternatives to the typical sit up that we all dread. Instead of crunches, it recommends that you switch things up and do three different reps of various ab exercises that involve the abdominal muscle group, increasing your metabolism and burning more calories than doing only sit up repetitions. This changes things for me, as this week I've been waking up and dropping on the floor to do 100 sit ups.
The article on quick starting your metabolism and dropping fat was my absolute favorite. Being around a cross fit trainer (my husband) and all his health freaks friends, and I have never heard of some of these tips. I am on board with them!!! I don't want to spoil your read, but some of my favorite ways to increase your metabolism included:
1.Give up Gum. Chewing gum makes you swallow and trap air that bloats you.
2. Consume six to seven servings of dairy per day. This one blew me away! Though Paleo is anti-dairy, I am considering this information. The article states that women who eat 15 % of daily calories in dairy and 30% in protein, shed belly weight twice as fast than those with a low dairy and low protein diet. Good thing I love me some Greek yogurt!!
I highly recommend this magazine! Although I am reviewing it for the All You company, my opinions are honest, and I will continue to snag this magazine! I am getting off the computer now because I am going to make a recipe I found in the magazine (amongst 31 delicious ones) turkey taco meat loaf!
Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great day! Stay healthy ;)
