Spinach – Spinach is an excellent source of antioxidant nutrients — including vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin A, and manganese —as well as a very good source of the antioxidant zinc and a good source of the antioxidant selenium—it’s no wonder that spinach helps lower risk of numerous health problems related to oxidative stress and inflammation.

2.) Kale – Kale is high in vitamins K, A and C. Vitamin A helps support skin health and vision. Vitamin C is important for immune health and joint health, helps to keep the body hydrated and also increases your metabolism.

2.) Coconut Milk – Studies find that medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) fatty acids found in coconut milk increase energy expenditure and help enhance physical performance. Following exercise, muscles also need plenty of nutrients — including electrolytes like magnesium and potassium that are found in coconut milk — to repair broken down tissue and grow back even stronger.

2.) Coconut water – Coconut water contains magnesium, which is necessary for activating muscles and nerves, creating energy in your body by activating adenosine triphosphate (ATP), helping digest proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, and is necessary for cellular health (i.e. an optimal metabolic rate)

3.) Honey – Raw honey contains natural minerals and vitamins which help the metabolizing of undesirable cholesterol and fatty acid on the organs and tissues into the system, hence preventing obesity and promoting better health for us.

The Antiaging Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • ¼ cup blackberries
  • ¼ cup raspberries
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup strawberries
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • 2 tsp. chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. protein powder

Why this smoothie speeds up your metabolism?

1.) Raspberries – By increasing enzyme activity, oxygen consumption, and heat production in certain types of fat cells, raspberry phytonutrients like rheosmin may be able to decrease risk of obesity as well as risk of fatty liver.

2.) Chia seeds – Studies show that the addition of chia seeds to your diet also reduces visceral adipose tissue, a “belly fat” tissue that effects the metabolism of the body and is a component of obesity!

3.) Protein Powder – Protein is the most thermogenic of all macro-nutrients, meaning it helps burn calories as you digest your food. Unfortunately, this doesn’t occur because most women don’t add enough or any protein to their smoothie. Add protein to burn calories and stabilize your insulin levels.

The Metabolic Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup blueberries
  • ½ cup mango
  • 1 heaping cup spinach
  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • ½ cup coconut water
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. protein powder
  • ½ cup ice (optional)

Why this smoothie speeds up your metabolism?

1.) Macro-Balancing – The fastest way to start speeding up your metabolism is to regulate your insulin and leptin levels. If you’re not properly balancing your macro-nutrients (fats, carbs, proteins) you are slowly killing your metabolism and developing insulin and/or leptin resistance.

If you have over 15 pounds to lose, you likely have both.

Learning to balance your macro-nutrients should be priority #1 when you’re starting any program.

Did you know that ALL of these smoothie factors above also dramatically affect your metabolism and hormonal health, either in a bad way or a good way, depending on which factor I’m talking about…

  • Your liver and thyroid health
  • Eating the RIGHT amounts of carbs and fats (and enough saturated fat/cholesterol too since it’s the building blocks for progesterone)
  • Doing the RIGHT types of exercises that boost HGH, and avoiding the WRONG types of exercises that increase cortisol
  • Utilizing adaptogenic herbs and metabolism-enhancing spices
  • Your stress levels and your sleep quality
