Eat more fibre. We often hear this advice. Fibre is an essential part of a healthy diet, but did you know it’s a great metabolism booster too? Today, we’re here to show you how to increase your metabolism with fibre.
A supercharged metabolism helps you burn calories faster. However, as we grow older, our metabolism starts to slow down and that can only lead to one thing – unwanted weight gain.
What Can Fibre Do for You?
Fibre Can Speed Up Your Metabolism by:
- Making Your Intestines Move Faster
Eating whole grains high in insoluble fiber moves faster through your digestive system so things pass through quicker which can help signal that you are full.
- Using Up Energy
The body is incapable of digesting fibre, yet it tries to nonetheless. This attempt uses up energy which makes you burn calories faster, increasing your metabolic rate in the process.
Other Benefits of Fibre:
- Prevents overeating – The sugar in high-fibre foods is digested slower, keeping your glucose level from increasing too fast, which prevents you from feeling hungry shortly after eating.
- Cleanses your colons – The scrub-brush effect of fibre helps wash out bacteria and other toxin in your intestines, decreasing your risk for colon cancer.
- Regulates bowel movements – Having a diet rich in fibre helps you have soft, consistent bowel movements, reducing constipation.
3 Ways to Increase Your Metabolic Rate
1. Find Out How Much Fibre You Need.
Using a food diary to record what you eat and the amount you eat per day is very important. This will help you identify whether or not you’re getting your daily dose of fibre. In UK, the average intake of fibre for women is 12.8 g/day and 14.8 g/day for men. The recommended average intake of adults is 25 g/day.
2. Eat Foods Rich in Fibre.
Lack of fibre in one’s diet is a killer. The following high-fibre foods can help up your metabolism in a snap:
3. Look for a natural metabolism booster.
Fibre supplements are a great way to ensure you’re getting the right amount of fibre every day. Herbalife is known for making the best metabolism booster. We highly recommend these 3 fibre supplements:
Fibrebond (“The Fat Blocker”)
Fibrebond grabs up to 25% of unwanted fat which passes through the digestive system instead of your body absorbing it. It flushes out build-up from your system (perfect for holidays) and its high-fibre content helps you feel fuller longer, cutting your appetite.
Fibre & Herb Tablets not only help you reach you’re daily recommended fibre intake of 25 g/day but it’s also a complex part of your weight management programme so you can lose weight effectively and the right way.
Florafibre (“Natural Belly Buster”)
Florafibre has “Lactobacillus acidophilus” (friendly bacteria or friendly flora) that replenish your intestinal tract that has been weakened by chemical antibiotics. It supports natural cleansing during digestion and helps regulate bowel movements. It also helps you meet your recommended daily intake of fibre.
