Every last one of us wants to look and feel our best, and we’ve all likely tried a laundry list of techniques to stay healthy, manage weight and feel great every day. If your metabolism isn’t functioning optimally, you simply won’t have the means to do this. Maybe you’ve tried diets, exercise regimens, or even weight loss pills to no avail. None of these will be of any benefit if the metabolic processes and hormones aren’t functioning as they were meant to. As a functional practitioner, my goal is to address the root cause of issues rather than symptoms. So rather than trying to achieve a goal being focused on the result, let’s focus on the root metabolic issues. I am not going to recommend a particular diet or a single exercise routine. Instead, I want to focus on concepts that you can incorporate into your daily routine, and compliment your other healthy habits, for long-term, sustainable solutions to improve how you look and feel. Let’s take a look at 5 of the best ways we can all master our metabolism, without turning to quick fixes or synthetic solutions.
