The #1 Factor That Influences Your Metabolism


Today I want to talk to you about the single biggest factor that influences your metabolism.

Do you know what it is?

I’ll tell you what it’s not…

*It’s not cardio

*It’s not strength training

*And it’s not your genetics

I won’t lie to you and say that these areas don’t play a factor in your metabolic health because they absolutely do.

What I will tell you however is that they are just part of the process and some of the key ingredients to your fat burning metabolism’s success.


So What’s The #1 Factor That Influences My Metabolism?


The #1 factor that influences your metabolism is nutrition, specifically “nutrient timing”.

So what’s nutrient timing you ask?

Good question…

“Nutrient timing” simply refers to the type of nutrients that you consume combined with the specific times that you consume them at.

Right now the average person (maybe even YOU, I know I used too!) currently only eats 2-3 meals a day.

When it comes to metabolic health, this is a big problem.


It’s simple – your body only remembers the last time you ate.

When you eat 2 meals a day (generally lunch and dinner) there is a huge gap between the time you ate dinner and the next time you eat lunch (sometimes 12-15 hours or more) and when this happens your body goes into “starvation mode” which causes you to store your calories as unwanted body fat.


So How Can I Fix This?


Great question!

The way you can make your metabolism work for you is to simply eat more frequently.

Instead of eating 2-3x a day with your meals spaced out at odd intervals, take the same amount of calories you will normally eat and space them out between 5 meals that you will consume every 2-3 hours apart.

By doing this you’re getting the right amount of energy that your body needs to be healthy, and your fueling your metabolism in a way that will allow it to use your excess belly fat as fuel so that you can lose weight and be healthy just like you want to be anyways.

Here’s the catch…

You can’t just eat 5 meals of anything you want.

You must consume the right amount of macronutrients (carbs, proteins, and fats) over the course of those 5 meals so that you’re allowing your metabolism to work for you instead of against you.


Here’s The Best Part…


When you begin to eat for your metabolism the way that I’m sharing with you today you don’t have to completely deprive yourself of your favorite foods.

“So you’re really saying that I can still have pizza?”


But not every day obviously…

One cheat meal a week is all you get, So make it count, let loose, and have some fun!

…And if you’re still not sure what to eat, then contact me and I’ll help you develop a nutrition plan that’s organized in a way that works for you and works for your specific body type.

This way you can still have fun and get the results you’re looking for!

As nutrition is the #1 factor in a weight loss program, exercise is #2.  If your goal is to lose weight.  The right nutrition program coupled with and effective training program that is specifically designed to burn fat around the clock is what you need.

    • I don’t think you have to eat anything substantial when you wake up. Just a little something (preferably protein) to get things moving.

      Try just mixing a quick little protein drink and drinking it down. Just 1 scoop in some milk or almond milk.
