The Calorie Myth You Should Know About!

We’ve all heard it, ‘track your calories to lose weight’. This is partially true. But the problem with partial truths is that they are only a hair’s breadth away from being an untruth. This is certainly the case here. Here’s why: 


(Translation: Calories aren’t created equal!)

Some foods you eat will go right to your waistline. Other foods can stimulate your metabolism to burn fat. Eating 700 calories of cake will have a dramatically different effect on your body than eating 700 calories of veggies and meat.

To make the matter more interesting, WHEN you eat will also have a big impact on how the food affects your body. Snacking between meals is much harder on your metabolism than eating at consistent meal times. Eating in the middle of the night, when your organs are meant to be cleansing themselves, is even worse! The best time to eat is at regular meal times each day, with 3-4 hours between meals.

Another big factor is the inherent properties of the food you’re eating. Some foods stimulate your metabolism, while other foods slow it down. Here are 5 of my favourite metabolism-stimulating foods.

The Calorie Myth

5 Foods Which Stimulate Metabolism

Each of these tasty foods is supportive in your goal to release weight. If you are happy with your weight or you would like to gain weight, these foods will keep your metabolism functioning well so you can achieve and maintain a healthy weight. For each food, I’ll share how I use them and then give you reference links to studies if you’d like to dig into the science a bit.
  • MCT Oil: I put MCT oil in the ‘hot chocolate’ smoothie I make each morning. It provides consistent energy for my day. (123)
  • Coconut Oil: This is the healthiest oil to cook with, and it provides healthy fats for your body. Stir fry veg and meat with this. (12)
  • Green Tea: This tasty tea stimulates metabolism while providing antioxidants. Drink in the morning or between meals. (12)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar: Take apple cider vinegar to boost metabolism while clearing the complexion and detoxing the body. (12)
  • Chili Peppers: Add chili peppers to food: chop and place on top or cook with the onions and garlic. (123456)
In addition to these metabolism-boosting foods, dōTERRA offers some powerful supplements which can be game-changers for your healthy weight and metabolism goals.

dōTERRA's Best Metabolism Supplement - The MetaPWR Line

dōTERRA’s MetaPWR line is focused specifically on balancing metabolism, and – wow! – people have been having some powerful results.

The MetaPWR line is a 3-part system: the MetaPWR Blend (in 4 forms), MetaPWR Assist, and MetaPWR Advantage.

The MetaPWR Blend is used to curb unhealthy cravings, suppress unnatural appetite, and shrink fat cells. It can be taken preventatively at the beginning of the day or before times when snacking usually occurs, like after a meal or in the evening. It can also be taken whenever an unhealthy craving comes up.

MetaPWR Assist is used to stabilize blood sugar spikes. Take it 15-30 minutes before the biggest (or most carb-dense) meal of your day. Don’t over-eat when taking this product, or you may experience some small discomforts. People who wear a blood-glucose monitor see the incredible effects of this product in real time.

MetaPWR Advantage is used to energize the body and support the skin and organs with anti-aging benefits. One of the down-sides of overeating or imbalanced eating is that the blood-glucose spikes wear down and age the body faster. This product is designed to counter those effects. It helps rebuild the organs, renews your energy, and brings back moisture and elasticity to the skin. Take this product once daily in 6 oz of water.

I wasn’t always into natural health. I struggled with a painful skin condition for over thirty years, and that drove me to look for answers. When I couldn’t find any solutions using conventional medicine, I explored natural alternatives in the hope that they may work. Boy was I ever surprised when my skin cleared up! By cultivating healthy habits, an abundant mindset, and by using natural solutions, I look and feel healthier today – in my 50’s! – then at any other point in my life. It is now my joy and pleasure to help everyone else experience the same health breakthroughs that I have.
