When you work with weight loss clients, it’s likely that you’ve noticed that the process varies a great deal from one client to the next. Some clients might start seeing results quickly and without having to make major lifestyle changes, while others may find the process to be much more challenging. While there are many factors that influence weight loss outcomes, your client’s metabolism plays a major role. An individual’s metabolic rate can be affected by genetics, age, and other circumstances beyond their control. Fortunately, your clients have the power to kick-start a slow metabolism.
Here are just a few ways to help your clients support a healthy metabolic rate:
Enjoy More Frequent Meals
For clients who are hoping to lose weight, eating more often might seem counterintuitive, but this practice can actually boost their metabolism. The key is for your clients to enjoy smaller meals throughout the day. Eating a few small meals throughout the day keeps blood sugar levels more stable, and prevents the urge to snack in between meals.
Practice Portion Control
Just as small, frequent meals support a healthy metabolism, practicing portion control can provide your clients with an added boost. Large meals can overload their system with an excess of energy, which can end up being stored in the body as fat. By sticking to reasonable portions, your clients can provide their bodies with the right amount of fuel.
Get Plenty of Rest
A good night’s sleep is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Lack of sleep can lead to an increase in ghrelin, also known as the hunger hormone. By getting plenty of rest each night, your clients can help keep ghrelin levels in check. They may wish to keep a set schedule to make it easier to ensure they get enough sleep.
Lead an Active Lifestyle
One of the easiest ways your clients can boost their metabolism is to exercise more. Working out increases your client’s metabolism, and the increase even lasts for hours after the workout has ended. Encourage your clients to work out a few times each week, and find opportunities to add some extra activity each day.
By living a balanced and active lifestyle, your clients can support a healthier metabolic rate and stay on track to reach their weight management goals. For clients who are looking for additional support in reaching their weight loss and management goals, you may want to recommend adding a supplement containing LOWAT®. In a clinical study, LOWAT® was shown to significantly decrease the hunger hormone, ghrelin, by 17.3%. Backed by extensive safety research, LOWAT® can help your clients reach their goals safely.
