Dr Oz: Fasting Slows Down Metabolism
Haylie Pomroy, author of the book The Fast Metabolism Diet, said the key to keeping your metabolism running strong is to be prepared for any “roadblocks” that might get in your way, like a special occasion dinner. The way to do this is by eating 10-15 grams of protein every two hours leading up to your event because it will stabilize your blood sugar so you will not arrive at the party starving. Haylie said the biggest mistake you can make is not eating all day long just so you can eat at a party because this will slow your metabolism. Here are some good examples of healthy protein choices:
- Lean organic beef
- Beans – black, adzuki, or white beans are a few examples
- Hemp milk
- Almond milk
Dr Oz: Olive Oil Lowers Rate Of Sugar Absorption
The next roadblock is one I am sure many of us can relate to, which is the sugar binge. Haylie Pomroy said that she loves to host dessert parties because she has a sweet tooth, like a lot of people, but she has some advice so that you can indulge a little without sabotaging your metabolism. Haylie said to include healthy fats in your dinner because they will help lower the rate of sugar delivery into your bloodstream.
- Raw nuts like pistachios, almonds or cashews
- Grapeseed oil
- Sesame oil
- Olive oil
Dr Oz: Cucumbers Prevent Weight Gain
Everyone likes to enjoy a drink with friends every now and then, but your metabolism should not have to suffer because of it. Haylie Pomroy said the most important thing you need to do is enjoy yourself and not feel any guilt. She recommends eating a lot of potassium-rich foods the day after you enjoy an evening of drinks because it will help stabilize electrolytes and prevent water-weight gain while getting your metabolism back on track quickly.
