Weight loss tips to remove stubborn fat. What are your best tips? It is an often asked question. I find as a health copywriter nourishing whole foods, exercise, superfood smoothies and yoga. Here are just a few other weight loss tips and tricks.
Pack In The Protein
Chicken, beans, lentils, chickpeas, nuts, seeds, fish and occasionally red meat. Quality protein enjoyed throughout the day balances blood sugar levels. Balanced blood sugar levels are vital for weight loss.
Dodge Inflammatory Foods
Ditch inflammatory foods including gluten, sugar, coffee, soda, energy drinks, alcohol and processed foods.
Aim for 35 ml of water per kg of body weight. So if you weigh 60 kilos, that’s 2 litres per day. Add a slice of fresh lemon and a slice of fresh ginger to help alkalize your body. Herbal teas count as part of your 2 litres. If you drink a cup of coffee or caffeine, add an extra glass of water. Caffeine dehydrates your body. Enjoy whole foods with high water content such as soups, broths, melons, green leafy vegetables, apple, cucumber, and cinnamon. Green smoothies are one of our favourite hydration hit.
Sugar may drive many of our health conditions, spike your blood sugar, tax your immune system, and rob your body of vital minerals. Sugar is highly addictive and floods your body with insulin. Insulin is the dietary hormone that signals your body to store fat.
Cleansing is especially useful for removing stubborn fat. When you choose a weight loss program, ensure the program has a cleansing component to it. It's essential to your overall wellbeing. Many clients who experience difficulty with weight loss, lack of energy or have hit a weight loss plateau find hypnotherapy works wonders. Find if you are allergic to pollen grains. Remove them and any environmental toxins which upset you.
Get Juiced Up
A nutrient-dense juice is a fantastic way to get a blast of nourishment. A cleansing juice is excellent for cleansing your liver, kidneys and is also a superb bowel cleanser.
Check For Food Intolerances
Get a food allergy test or tune into your body to notice any reactions you have to certain foods. For optimal health and indeed weight loss remove allergenic foods from your diet.
Exercise And Stress Relief
Your body loves to move! Find an exercise that flicks your switch and gets that sweat happening. By sweating we are, among other things, increasing our metabolism, removing toxins, boosting our happy hormones and so much more. I'm always mixing my daily exercise hit up. I love yoga, walking, jogging, weight training and swimming. I keep my yoga mat, trainers and treadmill by my desk at work, so I keep moving throughout my day. These type of exercises I find breathing from my diaphragm effective for stress release. Rosie, my gorgeous cattle dog, is always with me at work as well, she's on to me as soon as the time is up to move. If it's not barking from Rosie, it's a beep from my fit bit. I also love my standup desk, well it's two wooden crates, which I use for most of my day at work.
I highly recommend Dr Michael Mosley & Mimi Spencer's no one bestseller The Fast Diet for long-term weight loss and optimal wellness. It's a game changer and will be a wellness trend for a while I'm sure.
