30 weight loss tips in 30 days – #25 Boost metabolism


Welcome to the NEW Healthista series featuring 30 days of weight loss tips with Nutritionist Rick Hay. Discover why introducing a nutrient powder can help you to boost metabolism and burn fat

Today’s tip is about certain nutrients that have been proven to boost metabolism, and increase the efficiency of a diet and exercise programme.

Things such as beetroot and green tea have strong evidence for their ability to increase metabolism, fat-burning and performance in the body and Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) which have been shown to help reduce fart around the middle.

Healthista has taken such ingredients and sourced them from superfoods and packed them into our new Body Food £18.95 from Healthista Shop) formula.

Body Food works incredibly well to give you a lift in the mornings without a subsequent crash and is particularly good as a pre-workout fuel.

Completely sugar-free and containing no artificial flavourings, it tastes slightly bitter thinks to the high concentration of metabolism boosting matcha green tea.

Rick Hay says: ‘Bitter ingredients and bitter foods will help you to lose weight faster. A modern diet is full of sugary foods, sweet things, the liver doesn’t like that. That is why we have such a problem trying to get the weight off. If foods are too sweet they cause us to produce insulin fluctuations and the body, therefore, can’t metabolise fat efficiently. I formulated Healthista’s Body Food with this bitterness in mind. You can have it in a juice or a smoothie, or if you want to in a little bit of water. What it will do for you is help with fat burning, it has matcha green tea, yerba mate and medium chained triglycerides (MCTs)  also to promote energy, boost metabolism and burn fat. This is a great product to help you before the gym or after as well with fat burning, just use one teaspoon or 7 gram scoop full (it’s in the pack) in water or juice a day or have it in a smoothie to help with weight loss.’
