Lose Weight by Increasing Your Metabolism

Do you have stubborn belly fat or struggle with losing weight? You’re not alone. Losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight is difficult for most people. Unfortunately, there are hundreds of companies claiming they have a “quick” and “easy” way to lose weight. In reality, their products are expensive, dangerous, and generally do not work very well. A more natural way to lose weight is to increase your body’s overall metabolic rate. At Bardisa Medical Center, we offer a Lipotropic weight loss program that helps to cleanse the liver and speed up your metabolism.

The liver is an essential organ to utilize when trying to lose weight due to its ability to store and reduce fat cells in the body. The liver acts as a fat burning organ as well as a fat pumping organ. When your liver is clogged with fat, it has difficulty breaking down fat cells therefore displacing them in other places. The liver pumps excess fat out of the body through the bile into the small intestines.

Lipotropic Weight Loss Program with Bardisa Medical Center

Bardisa Medical Center offers a Lipotropic weight loss program, which uses a combination of Vitamin B12 and essential amino acids delivered through injections to increase the body’s metabolic rate. The injections work to cleanse the liver of excess fat, which in turn cleanses the blood, working to remove fat cells from the body.

The Lipotropic weight loss program not only helps patients lose weight but also helps:

  • Increase energy levels
  • Increase liver health and function
  • Reduce cholesterol
  • Appetite suppression and
  • Balance moods

Additional Ways to Boost Your Metabolism

There are also a few lifestyle changes that you can make to speed up your metabolism. The suggestions listed below are healthy lifestyle changes that will benefit everyone but typically do not lead to significant weight loss.

  • Keep the temperature cool – increases levels of healthy brown fat, which is linked to weight loss, healthier blood sugar levels, and longevity.
  • Eat regularly – depriving the body of food leads to less vitamins and nutrients being received which are crucial for weight loss.
  • Drink water and green tea – green tea contains catechins (an antioxidant that triggers the release of fat from cells), and drinking more water can increase the number of calories burned.
  • Organic foods – eat organic foods when you can to avoid the added hormones that other foods may contain, which may affect the hormones in your body.
  • Weight lifting – the resting metabolic rate is higher in those with more muscle mass because muscle uses more energy than fat therefore burning more calories.
  • Stress less/sleep more – the hormones associated with stress and sleep deprivation can cause the body to metabolize food more slowly.
  • Eat salmon – salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids which help to balance blood sugar and reduce inflammation, helping to regulate metabolism.
