Is Your Metabolism functioning
Energy...or the lack of energy is a result
of your metabolism! The body burns calories for one reason
-- to produce energy! The body (your metabolism) burns
calories from either carbohydrates, proteins or fats.
Those who are struggling with fatigue,
weight gain, cravings, mood swings, etc. are typically
burning calories from carbs and proteins instead of stored
fats. This is important because you get two and a half
times more energy when you burn a gram of fat instead of a
gram of carbs or proteins…and this needs to be corrected
if you expect to get your energy back!
Your metabolism is much like a fireplace…
are like small twigs, they burn very easily but they don’t
produce much heat (energy).
are like small branches, they produce energy, But we don’t
want to be burning lean muscle for energy.
are like the big fat logs, they burn for hours and give off
a lot of heat.
The body produces two and a half times
more energy when it burns calories from stored body fats as
opposed to burning carbs and proteins (lean muscle). So,
the key is to burn as much FAT as possible.
If you are always struggling with
Fatigue and weight gain
Cravings and low blood sugar
Difficulty concentrating and to focus, ADD
Mid-morning and afternoon slumps
Mood swings and irritability if meals are missed or delayed
Having to eat every couple of hours
Waking up in the middle of the night and can’t fall back
These symptoms indicate that your
metabolism is primarily burning calories from carbohydrates
and proteins instead of stored body fats. (use the online
health quizzes to see if you are burning calories from
A Fast-Paced Lifestyle Can Drain Your Energy
The body is designed to burn calories
throughout the day from stored body fats, but when you are
on the go, in that “fight or flight” mode, skipping meals,
eating the wrong foods or exercising, your body is going to
burn calories from carbs and proteins.
Yes, you’ll burn calories, but you won’t
be burning calories that will give you long-term energy.
This is why counting calories consumed (eaten) versus
calories burned doesn’t work!
Just because you burned 300 calories from
the treadmill or any other type of exercise…it doesn’t tell
us if we burned 300 calories from the breakdown of fats or
the breakdown of carbs and proteins.
Your Hormones May Be The Key To Improving Your Metabolism…
Your metabolism is controlled by hormones,
which are a result of
stress and diet!
Some hormones trigger your body to burn fats…some hormones
trigger your body to burn carbs and proteins….and some
hormones trigger your body to store fats. The key is to
make sure your thyroid, pancreas and adrenal glands are
triggering the right hormones that will keep your energy up
and your weight down.
Your Diet (blood sugar regulation) triggers your pancreas to
produce insulin and glucagon.
Insulin causes your body to store fat,
while glucagon triggers your body to burn fats. A
carbohydrate rich meal triggers insulin and cause your blood
sugar to rise and fall very rapidly…this causes your body to
burn carbs and proteins.
On the other hand a meal containing more
protein produces more glucagon, which helps stabilize your
blood sugar and allows your body to burn stored body fats.
This is why maintaining proper blood sugar is critical in
the quest for more energy and weight loss.
hormones regulate your metabolism when you are at rest and
When you are stressed, always on
the go, in that ‘fight or flight mode your adrenal glands
will produce cortisol and adrenaline, which trigger the
body to burn carbs and proteins -- and NOT fats. This is
why Stress is that the missing piece of the puzzle and
contributes to fatigue and weight gain.
Your body is designed to handle short term
stress…NOT constant, prolonged stress. Plus stress is
cumulative! This is why fatigue, weight gain, cravings,
and mood swings are so common. They are a result of
cortisol and adrenaline triggering your metabolism to burn
calories from carbs and proteins (lean muscle) NOT stored
There are different types of stresses
Mental stress…worry, fear, anger, always on the
Physical stress…not enough sleep, too much
exercise, too much of the wrong exercise, being
overweight, joint pain, aches and injuries
Chemical stress…polluted water and air, toxins,
pesticides, hormones and antibiotics in our food,
medications, artificial sweeteners, colors and
Dietary stress…skipping meals, low blood sugar,
indigestion, reflux, heartburn, etc
Stress is Cumulative
The more worry, fear and anxiety in your
The more you skip meals and let your blood
The more your indigestion, heartburn and
The more physical stress, lack of sleep, aches and pains
….add up and overwork your adrenal glands,
which causes an overproduction of cortisol and
adrenaline. This causes your metabolism to burn carbs
and protein, which don’t give us much energy.
Improving Your Metabolism
Improving your metabolism is a two-pronged
approach that deals with Stress and Diet.

physical, chemical or dietary stress?
Nourish the adrenal glands, by supplementing them with
the specific nutrients that have been depleted from all
Multivitamins are great at providing a
little bit of everything…but they don’t provide enough
specific nutrients that have been depleted from stress. We
recommend Adrenal Fuel,
which is a two phase stress recovery formula that nourishes
those exhausted adrenal glands. Plus, it can help balance
the hormones produced by the adrenal glands and thyroid.
There is NO other product on the market
like it. Many products are designed to just reduce
cortisol. However, it’s more than just cortisol. You have
to nourish the adrenal glands, which are responsible for the
production of cortisol, adrenaline, DHEA, testosterone and
estrogen and a whole lot more.
