Yesterday on the Facebook page, I asked you guys for suggestions on what should be the Top 10 topic of the week.
It seems that you all want to know how to speed yours up to burn more calories during the day? So you get the full benefits of the tea, not just what is released into the surrounding water. Matcha can boost the metabolism by 40% and 1 cup of matcha has the nutritional benefits equal to 20 cups of standard green tea. AND… did you know that because of this, 2 hours of interval sprints (over 2 weeks) is the same as running 10 hours at a steady state. Strength training is essential because it helps to increase muscle mass… don’t be afraid of that!
If you’re new to strength training, start with 2-3 days of body weight exercises and progress up as your form and confidence improves. Hot peppers might not have you burning off 5 pounds over night, but every little bit helps, right? Some people will say that exercise is the most important activity to lose weight, I am a strong believer that sleep is number one. I don’t know about you but chocolate is more of a friend to me then my diamonds, so knowing that it’s good for me only makes the two of us tighter! I mentioned this yesterday in terms of blood sugar, but when you eat fewer large meals each day your metabolism slows down. Studies show that coffee has the ability to increase the oxidation of fat, and hence burns off calories.
And if your workouts are better that means you won’t only burn more calories during the workout, but the after burn of a more intense workout will last longer as well.


In fact, because of the up and down intense interval pattern, your metabolism can be boosted for more than 24 hours!
A good weight loss program involves both cardio and strength to help burn fat and sculpt the body. I know women like to hear “tone up” but toning is just a feminine way of saying to add muscle. Studies show that capasaicin has a short term affect on metablism but also helps with weight loss because it seems to decrease appetite, and therefore overall food consumption.
Sleepless nights can lead to increased levels of ghrelin which increases appetite and fat storage. Studies show that people who eat 1-2 oz of dark chocolate per day are not only more successful at losing weight, but at keeping the weight off. Not only will this provide a hefty dose of antioxidants, but will have less sugar than lower percentages. It’s of course a short term boost and in the end you won’t be burning off a ton of calories, but it does help.
Drinking a cup of coffee before a workout can help people to workout longer and harder which is why both runners and lifters turn to a good black cup of joe.
I am not suggesting that by adding these foods into your diet you will suddenly burn an extra 500 calories.
And hot stuff is a must in this house, except for the time when I accidentally cooked with a habenaro because I didn’t know what one looked like! It really amps up my workouts in a short period of time and I love feeling it the next day. I agree, I love the way that sprints kill not just my legs but my abs are always sore the next day too!


Am writing all the way from Scotland and just want to say how much your blog and website inspires me! In one study I read, adults that drink at least 8 glasses of water a day burn more calories than those that only drink up to 4 glasses. For the best results, aim for a full 7-8 hours of sleep a night for the best metabolism function. A knoweldgeable, experienced and yet supportive and friendly approach to women’s fitness and wellebing is just what I have been lookin for. Instead of seeping it as you would a normal tea bag, it gets stirred in with water and down it goes. I am a believer that if these ten tips are added to a lifestyle that includes a healthy diet and workout regiment, then it’s not going to hurt. To summarise my story in short, I have always loved fitness but after running a few half marathons and then the Paris marathon in 2010, everything has gone downhill. I hate to hear about your condition, as a person who suffers from a herniated disc I know how frustrating it can be do want to do certain things that your body just can’t handle. I go to the gym as much as I can and now have a spin bike at home so that I can work out regularly at my own intensity. As such, my exercise is sporadic and I ahve gained 3 stones- am terribly unhappy about this!!
I will persevere with my cardio plan but do you have any good tips for uppers arms, chest and shoulders that do not stress the lower back?
