Dr. Elliott’s Metabolism Booster Health Drink
One of the hardest things adults can do is start, or restart, their metabolism to make exercise of any kind effective. So many times injury or age prevents us from participating in all the physical exercise it takes to reach our health goals, so I researched and formulated this delicious health drink to get your metabolism going! It’s simple to make, and delicious.

Only 4 ingredients!
Coconut Milk – 2 Cups Unsweetened. Usually comes in a Carton (important)
Tumeric – 1/2 teaspoon to start, then gradually up the quantity to 1 teaspoon
Chia – 1 teaspoon for Fiber and Fatty Acids
Watercress – 1/2 cup for Iodine

Blend with Ice to release the fiber and infuse the ingredients.
Sip all day.
Enjoy!

High Intensity Interval Training turns your body into a fat burning machine! There is no need to spend endless hours at the gym or running for miles a day to become, and stay fit. Of course if you have the time, and enjoy the activity, have at it, but this program is designed for the Executive, or the Mom on the run, or the athlete on the off exercise day.
