5 ways to boost your metabolism and start to lose weight

For some of us, losing weight isn’t that easy. I know that after years and years of dieting, doing the yo-yo (my weight going up and down) and after mistreating my body into intense physical activities and/or low calories diets, my body now rejects my attempts to lose weight. I have to put more efforts to it and wait longer before getting any results. So I have been doing some research to find out how I could boost my metabolism and finally start to lose weight.

5 reasons why you shouldn’t trust your bathroom scale

Hello everyone ! Very popular topic today because I’m going to talk about the bathroom/weight scale. Usually, us girls we’re afraid of it. We have goal numbers in our head that are not so easy to achieve. And what is more upsetting than to excercise regularly and/or be on a food diet and see that the numbers on the scale aren’t decreasing? Or sometimes even increase? That’s why I am writing this article today, because we the years and practice and experiences, I have come to learn that the scale isn’t our BFF.

My Protein website review

Hi everyone ! Today I want to talk really quickly about the website My Protein. The first time I’ve heard about it was through a friend who is a regular customer. She’s really into fitness and she actually helped me find out about the products suited for my lifestyle and my level of activity.

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, “Physical Activity during Summer”, I run about 3 to 4 times a week and sometimes go to the swimming pool depending on my free time. I run between 40 minutes and 1 hour, early in the morning, and I’m using several products from the website My Protein.

Here’s the list :

  • L Carnitine
  • Thermopure
  • Mega green tea extract
  • CLA

That’s for the pills. Moving on to the shaker mix :

  • Elle true diet (meal replacement when I don’t feel like cooking or when I don’t want to eat too much)
  • Low calorie meal replacement (when I had too much to eat the meal before)
  • Total breakfast (when I’m in a hurry in the morning)
  • Spirulina
  • Whole Psyllium Husk
  • Nutri-green => the 3 of theses mixed together help the digestion. I take a shaker every morning, 30 minutes before breakfast and it does wonders !

And last :

  • Pancake mix : it’s the only product I have been disappointed with. It isn’t that good and the pancakes are a bit dry.
  • Flav drops (chocolate and strawberry flavor) : I use it as a syrup with water or in my cottage cheese
  • Low sugar maple syrup : same use as the Flav Drops but I haven’t used it that much so far

Some of those products I’ve been using for quite some times now, others are rather new. But since I’ve started to use this products, my energy has improved, I’m overall less tired and my digestion (yeah I know it’s not very glamorous ^^) has been back on tracks after years of struggles.

I’m very happy with this brand, the prices aren’t too expensive and there are sales EVERYDAY so you have to keep an eye on the website or subscribe to the newsletter to make sure you don’t miss out anything.

The delivery takes about 3 to 4 days and you receive emails and a text on the day and time of the delivery, to keep track of the delivery. So far I never had any problem.

You also have a large range of products from sports equipment to pills, proteins, whey, sportswear, etc. It’s perfect for high level athletes or people who just want to get back in shape. Good plus : the website offers a selection of products depending on your physical activity and gives you advice.

In one word, I’m really happy with this website so check it out if you’re interested !
