Rev Your Metabolism

Our metabolism is all the chemical processes that happen in our body that help to keep us alive and living and keeps our organs functioning normally, such as breathing and digesting food. These chemical processes require energy and this is called the basal metabolic rate (BMR).

It is our metabolic rate which determines the amount of calories we burn. Having a higher metabolic rate means that we are burning more calories - even at rest - which makes it easier for us to lose weight and also keep it off.

These ‘characteristics’ are not a list of what you should possess, but are merely the traits that my most successful clients (and by this I mean those that have achieved their individual goals) have.
