3 Low-Carb Dinners That Will Boost Your Metabolism

Most people believe they know the basic formula for weight loss: caloric output should be greater than caloric intake. Unfortunately, your metabolism is more complicated than you might realize. Common metabolic myths are a major reason that formula rarely works long-term.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that your metabolism is permanently set by genetics. While genetics play a part, it’s greatly influenced by your lifestyle choices. Falling for the simplicity of the “more calories out than in” myth can actually be detrimental to your health. For example, a candy bar and a plate with five ounces of grass-fed beef and broccoli both have about 250 calories.

3 Recovery Methods to Optimize Performance

Any CrossFitter will tell you it’s the intensity of the routine that separates him or her from the pack. But research shows that doing CrossFit too frequently without making some key adjustments can have undesired consequences.

Training consisting of a lot of volume and intensity produces substantial amounts of lactic acid — a compound created by the breaking down and oxidizing of glucose — and your muscle pH drops.
