How do you support a healthy metabolism? The process of metabolism establishes the rate at which we burn our calories and, ultimately, how quickly we gain weight or how easily we lose it. Although some factors affecting metabolic rate, like age and genetics, can’t be changed, there are ways to maximize your metabolism.

Eat Breakfast

One important part of metabolism is how many calories you burn while at rest. Did you know that eating breakfast to “break the fast” can increase your metabolism by as much as 10%? Start your day with the less-processed whole grain nutrition of Great Grains Protein Blend to help jumpstart your metabolism.**

Eat Protein

Did you know that protein generally requires about 25% more energy to digest? Because protein takes longer to break down than fat and carbohydrate, the body uses more energy to digest protein and this helps you burn more calories. As a good source of protein, Great Grains Protein Blend can actually help enhance your metabolism!**

Exercise Regularly

Exercise is a great way to boost metabolism, and it is a key part of your healthy lifestyle. Muscle burns more calories than fat, so try to include both aerobic workouts and weight training in your routine.
