A metabolic health coach has revealed the three things you can do to “instantly boost your metabolism” and help you shed stubborn excess fat.
Justin Nault, a nutrition therapist based in Nashville, Tennessee, has more than 217,000 followers TikTokwhere he shares tips for losing weight by eating more and moving less.
The founder and CEO of the food company Clovis Culture went viral this weekend after detailing the small changes you can make to your diet to boost your metabolism.
“If your body stores excess fat that you can’t seem to lose even when you exercise and cut calories, you’re probably one of the 88 percent of Americans with some form of clinical metabolic dysfunction,” he said.

Nault cited a 2018 study by researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hillwho found that only 12 percent of American adults are metabolically healthy.
TIPS TO INCREASE YOUR METABOLISM
- Eliminate seed oils from your diet and use olive oil or butter instead
- Get one gram of protein per pound of your ideal body weight
- Swap processed foods for whole foods in your diet
“But your body is adaptable and your metabolic damage is reversible,” he added.
Nault first recommended eliminating seed oils from your diet.
Seed oils are a category of vegetable oils derived from seeds, including sunflower, canola, corn, grapeseed, and sesame oils.
“Don’t cook with them,” he said.
“Check every ingredient label on any processed foods you buy and ask restaurants to cook your food in butter.”
‘Seed oils are literally used to fatten cattle with fewer calories.
They’re not just bad for your health. They mess up your metabolism.’
Seed oils are particularly rich in omega-6 fatty acids, which some scientists believe may contribute to inflammation in the body, according to Healthline.
Chronic inflammation is an underlying factor in many common diseases such as heart disease and cancer.

However, the evidence that omega-6 is harmful to the body is mixed, and many health professionals consider seed oils to be healthy.
Nault’s second tip was to get one gram of protein per kilo of ideal body weight.
He explained that if you want to weigh 130 pounds, you need to eat at least 130 grams of protein per day.
Increasing the amount of protein in your diet boosts your metabolism, reduces appetite and regulates certain hormones, according to Healthline.
“If this seems difficult to you, I guarantee you’re already undereating and your metabolism is suffering from a lack of nutrients,” Nault added. “This is one of the ways that undereating can cause you to store fat.”
Nault’s final piece of advice was to “exchange your processed foods for whole foods.”

The latest advice from the metabolism expert was to “trade your processed foods for whole foods,” as studies show you burn more calories when you eat the latter.

According to a new study published in the journal Nature communication.
“Studies show that your body burns more when you eat whole foods rather than processed foods, even when you eat the same number of calories,” he explained.

“Increasing my protein intake has been a game changer for my metabolic health!” one fan agreed.
“It changes everything for my clients, VERY quickly,” Nault replied. ‘So many women eat less than 50 grams a day!’
‘Thank you! My kitchen is full of seed oils. They’re going to the trash!’ someone else added.
“I met with a dietitian and just found out I’ve been undereating for years, not enough protein,” someone else added. “Adding Week 1 Lost a Significant Weight.”
