boost your metabolismNikki Boswell, Nutritionist for the September 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge explains why a healthy metabolism is crucial for effective, long term weight loss and calorie burning:
Boosting your metabolism is key to not only losing weight but keeping it off for the long term, which is exactly what the September 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has been designed to do – fire up your metabolism to give you a calorie burning advantage.
Simply put, your metabolism determines how much energy your body needs and how efficiently that energy will be used. A healthy metabolism promotes a healthy body weight and increases energy levels.
The September 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge combines a metabolism boosting meal plan with an exercise program designed to burn calories and build metabolically active lean muscle mass by focusing on:
healthy eating meal plans

  • Nutrient-dense, whole foods that provide a wide range of essential nutrients and model a healthy way of eating that is sustainable in the long term (crash diets are a metabolic disaster)
  • Low GI, high fibre plant based foods that provide stable blood sugar levels and hormone responses for sustained energy
  • Protein rich foods that have a high thermogenic effect (they use energy to digest and metabolise), leave you feeling satisfied until your next meal or snack, and in combination with the specifically designed exercise program, build muscle mass to maximise your calorie and fat burning potential
  • Energy balanced meals to reduce body fat which is metabolically sluggish; and
  • Spices such as cinnamon, turmeric and chilli which give your metabolism an extra little kick

Following the September 28 Day Challenge will help you maximise metabolic opportunity and get your metabolism working to your weight loss advantage.
