How Do Metabolism Shots Help You Lose Weight?

Weight loss is a marathon, not a sprint, but it can be tough when you feel like you’ve reached a fitness plateau. If you’re on your weight loss journey and you just can’t seem to shed those extra pounds, no matter how many calories you count, then you may want to try some metabolism shots.

What Are Metabolism Shots?

Otherwise known as MIC shots or “skinny shots,” metabolism shots contain amino acids that help you lose weight faster. Every metabolism shot contains the following amino acids:

  • Methionine: takes part in muscle growth and energy, breaking down fat.
  • Inositol: converts nutrients to energy.
  • Choline: prevents fat build-up in the liver (good if you’re trying to lower your cholesterol).
  • Pyridoxine Hydrochloride (also known as vitamin B6): is used in protein and homocysteine metabolism and energy production. It’s needed to absorb methylcobalamin.
  • Methylcobalamin: creates new cells and ups energy levels, so it can help you exercise longer.
  • L-Carnitine: converts fat into energy.
  • Taurine: helps liver create bile salts which help breakdown fatty acids in the intestines

How Do Metabolism Shots Work?

Metabolism shots increase the speed of your metabolism by using amino acids your body already creates. Lipotropics are fat-burning amino acids that push your body to burn existing fat stores for fuel. These amino acids can amplify your weight-loss results. But metabolism shots are not a magical cure-all answer to help you lose weight. You still have to do your part. However, they are an easy way to boost your weight-loss efforts. All you have to do is get a shot, so you’re in and out of the doctor’s office quickly. You can schedule up to two metabolism shots a week, so it depends on how much of a boost your metabolism needs. These are all amino acids that are created naturally in your body, and two shots a week will not upset their regular balance.

How Do I Implement Metabolism Shots Into my Lifestyle?

For metabolism shots to work, you need to utilize them alongside a healthier lifestyle. And to do so, you may need to check in with your dietician. Because these skinny shots will not work unless you change your caloric intake. However, calories needed per day vary drastically based on your lifestyle, like if you sit at a desk job or are on your feet all day. Before you cut any calories at all, talk to a dietician or nutritionist who can help you plan a sustainable diet that actually helps you keep the weight off without any drastic calorie-cutting. Exercise is the other key piece of the puzzle to boost the results of your metabolism shots. If you struggle with exercising, try lots of different activities until you find one that you enjoy. Exercise doesn’t just mean doing the treadmill or elliptical at the gym. You can join a recreational soccer team or do hikes in the morning. What matters most is sticking with regular exercise, and not burning the maximum amount of calories per hour.

Will Metabolism Shots Really Help Me?

As long as you stick to a weight loss plan, metabolism shots will help you see results. Most patients who implemented metabolism shots into their weight-loss routine lost 5-10 pounds. However, this all depends on how often you take your shots and how disciplined you are with your caloric intake and exercise regimen. If you tend to slack off on exercise or do lots of cheat days for your calorie intake, then you will not see the same results with metabolism shots. But if you are disciplined with diet and exercise and still struggling to shed any more pounds, make an appointment with the experts at the Hydration Room to see if a metabolism shot is right for you.
