Here are some tips to help you maintain or look towards weight loss. Often its not the food that is consumed - there are so many other factors that can contribute to long term weight gain.
If you follow the below tips and find that you cannot lose weight then you may want to book a consultation to investigate what is holding you back.
Opt for full fat products – as nature intended. Don’t eat ‘low fat’ products. They are usually full of sugar to make up for the taste or even worse - artificial sweetener (which promotes fat storage).
Eat lunch away from your desk – preferably in the sun. By eating away from your desk your digestion improves and it gives you a break from the computer screens which lower your levels of Vitamin A & D in the body.
Are you feeling grumpy being on a diet? Chances are you need some wholegrains; you need to remove refined carbohydrates from your diet – but still include a little brown breads/rice/pasta. Carbohydrates are so important for your moods.
Eat regularly and don’t skip meals. It’s SO important to have 3 meals a day. Some find having 2 snacks thrown in there helps; it keeps your metabolism going and ensures you don’t reach for the wrong choices because your blood sugar levels have dropped.
Make half of your plate green salad matter, meaning that you will get the required fibre that is essential for great bowel function. Veges are also packed with vitamins and minerals which are essential for every part of the body.
Remove Trans fats from your diet – this includes any packaged product with the item ‘vegetable oil’ listed in the product category; muesli/protein bars and most commercial crackers/biscuits are full of it.
Drink 8 glasses of filtered water a day, this flushes toxins from the body and keeps you well hydrated as well as improving your skin.
Exercise around 30 minutes a day, this burns calories and removes toxins from the body. It also gives you that ‘feel good' factor, so get out there and get moving!
Being skinny doesn’t always mean you are healthy! Going on a ‘diet’ usually means that you will resume your normal food choices after the ‘diet’ is complete. It is more important to make lifestyle changes that will last with you forever.
