Make Metabolism Work For You
shifting slow metabolisms to fast metabolisms
A slow metabolism sounds like a poor excuse that obese people use for eating too much and exercising too little. Overweight people despise thin people for naturally having a high metabolism who can eat anything that they crave without putting on weight.
Although some of us are able to cheat while others pick up weight looking at the cake display in a restaurant, the kilo joule burner in our body can be manipulated. By either making small changes in our diet or activity levels, we can kick start or speed up metabolism slightly, resulting in a more efficient machine that looks leaner.
By skipping meals and eating irregularly, we confuse our body and this could lead to fat storage when your body hoards the energy that is consumed. Experts recommend eating up to six small meals per day, but the quantities depend on energy expenditure. If your idea of exercise is moving from the car to the couch, fewer calories need to be consumed on the couch.
The excuse of not having time to exercise is just as unacceptable as wearing luminous unitards to the gym. Exercise choices include dancing, skating, group activities and outdoor sports. Exercise involves any physical activity that raises the heart rate and this means that the possibilities for energy expenditure is endless! Regular intervals of raising the heart rate throughout the day can boost energy levels and wake up tired muscles. Dead times of the day include times when you are waiting in a queue, watching television or preparing a meal. Use these times more effectively by:
- Clench your buttocks together and hold a few seconds when sitting down
- Pull your navel towards your spine and reduce the area between your hips and belly to improve posture while driving
- Do a few calf raises when standing or talking on the phone
- Activate your lower abdominals by lifting your heels off the floor when sitting
- Buy a punch bag or speed bag for the office or home and take out your frustrations each time you walk past
- Walk to the tv instead of using a remote to change channels
- Walk to the shops instead of driving
- Get home exercise equipment such as a cycle or stepper and sweat while watching television
- Play with the kids by running around the garden or wrestling with your partner
- Drink water instead of snacking on unhealthy food What we recommend is to replace them with water, or stevia sweetened lemonade, limeade or unsweetened cranberry juice with stevia. Simply mix 12-16 ounces of water with the juice of one lemon or lime with 2 tablespoons or Fructevia, Steviva Brand Stevia Blend or a dash Steviva Brand Stevia Powder
- Keep a bag or apples or nuts at your desk to avoid chocolate temptation
While you may never complain that you should pick up weight (there are such people who lose too much body fat), you can speed up metabolism and look leaner while having more energy.
Have an excellent day.

2 Tbsp - Fructevia or Steviva Brand Stevia Blend
2 oz - fat free margarine
1 egg yolk

2. Add the butter (softened), egg yolk, and water. Work the liquids into the Fructevia or Steviva Brand Stevia Blend, until it is creamy.
3. Now work in the flour mixture, as you would for any sweet pastry.
4. Press the dough into a greased cupcake or muffin tin. Prick the base of the pastry all over.
5. Refrigerate for 30 mins, then cook in a moderate oven 375F or for 15 to 20 mins (until golden brown)
1. Put egg yolks, Fructevia or Steviva Brand Stevia Blend and vanilla into a bowl and beat until thick and creamy.
2. Heat cream carefully until almost boiling.
3. Combine the two mixtures, beating until smooth, then add the result to the top of a double boiler and simmer until it thickens (STIR CONSTANTLY).
4. Dissolve the gelatine in the water, and add to the cream mixture, stirring well until it is well mixed.
5. Allow this mixture to cool completely before adding to the pastry case. Refrigerate until it sets.
1. Soak the berries in Fructevia or Steviva Brand Stevia Blend for 20 minutes. Drain and and reserve 1 cup of the syrup.
2. Arrange the berries artistically over the top of the tart.
3. Put the reserved syrup, gelatine and rum into a saucepan and heat (stirring) until gelatine dissolves.
4. Cool the liquid and pour over the berries. Refrigerate until set.
Don't be put off by the complexity of the recipe -- it is well worth the effort.
