Hey there, I want teach you something that can help you feel amazing and healthy? We’re talking about metabolic flexibility!
First things first, what the heck is metabolic flexibility? Simply put, it’s your body’s ability to switch between using different fuel sources for energy. That means you can efficiently switch between Carbs and Fat for fuel.
Why do you want to be metabolically flexible? Being metabolically flexible can help improve your energy levels, support healthy blood sugar levels, and even reduce your risk of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
So how can you become metabolically flexible?
One way is through diet! By eating whole, nutrient-dense foods like meat, seafood, veggies, nuts, and a tiny bit of fruit, you’re teaching your body to rely on fat for fuel instead of carbs. This can help your body become more efficient at using fat for energy and can improve your metabolic flexibility.
Expanding on that is getting your body into ketosis where it starts using ketones (which are produced from fat breakdown) to rely on fats as the main energy source for your body and brain function.
Another way to improve your metabolic flexibility is through exercise. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) and weight training have both been shown to improve metabolic flexibility and increase fat burning. So, get your sweat on and start pumping some iron!
Metabolic flexibility is a pretty awesome thing to have. By following a diet like paleo and getting your body moving, you can improve your metabolic flexibility and reap the benefits of increased energy and better overall health.
