  • The Metabolic Power of Slow – Video with Marc David
    Posted on December 6, 2014

    The Metabolic Power of Slow So many of us are looking to increase our metabolism. We want to calorie-burn better, we want more energy, a stronger immune system and a more powerful digestion. So it's logical to assume that in order to have these things, we need to push harder. We need to work more, move faster, get all pumped up and push the pedal to the metal. It seems to make sense that a hotter metabolism happens when we get into the highest gear possible. Oddly enough, though, nothing could be further from the truth. In this fascinating video from IPEtv, Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating reveals how slowing down can be a powerful metabolic enhancer. When we move slower and step into a physiologic relaxation response, digestion is enhanced, our energy level increases and our calorie burning capacity is improved. Once you incorporate this practice of slow into your daily world, you'll never look back. Tune in and learn more!
