10 Weight Loss Tips
Hello Everyone! I am hopeful that everybody had a great weekend and is ready to tackle another week! I wanted to give you a few weight loss tips…ten to be exact here this evening that you can begin to use tomorrow. Hope this helps stimulate some thought and also variety against what you may already be doing in terms of eating and diet.
1. Workout smarter
Did you know you can actually lose more weight & keep your metabolism fired up longer by doing 3-to-4 shorter 10-minute workouts instead of 1 big 30-to-40-minute cardio workout?
A research study at the university of Pittsburgh found that women who split up their 40 minute cardio workouts into 4 separate 10 minute cardio workout sessions during the day LOST 20 pounds while… the group of women who did one big 40 minute cardio workout only lost 14 pounds and…
The reason why more shorter workouts are better is because you never give your fat burning metabolism a chance to slow down.
2. Take a break to lose weight faster A University of Tokyo study found that people who took a 20 minute break about halfway thru their hour-long cardio workout burned 20% more fat than the people who worked out for an hour straight non-stop because… Taking short 20 minute workout breaks makes your fat-burning hormones work much better.
3. Drink Water
Water Lowers the Amount of Fat Stored in your body
Your kidneys get very lazy on the job when you don’t drink enough water and as a result of you not drinking water, your kidneys give most of its unfinished work to your liver.
One of your liver’s functions is to help your body burn stored fat for energy and it can’t perform that job fully if it has to do the kidney’s job also.
By not drinking water you put your liver on double duty, decreasing its fat burning potential and causing you to store more fat. If you drink enough water your kidneys will stop being lazy, do its job of excreting waste products from your body.
4. Fast weight loss = YOU eating more RAW fruits & veggies
Your body has to burn a lot of calories to break down the RAW fruits & veggies you eat so basically… You’re losing weight fast every time you eat fruits & veggies and people whose diets are dominant in fruits & veggies tend to lose weight faster and maintain their weights much longer plus…
Fruits & Veggies give you longer lasting energy while fighting off hunger cravings which means you’ll never get fat but fruits & veggies will keep you burning fat! and… Researchers at Tufts university found that the more vegetables people eat – the thinner they are.
5. Drink Green Tea
Studies show you can burn 35-43% more fat during the day when you drink 3-to-5 cups of green tea.
6. Eat more fiber
Getting more fiber in your diet can help you control your weight. Eating fiber prevents you from overeating because it makes you feel full.
You’ll have an even greater feeling of fullness and higher energy levels throughout the day if you eat meals that are mostly made up of fiber, protein, and water.
Fiber also slows down the digestion of foods you eat keeping your blood sugar/energy levels in check preventing you from getting hungry.
7. Eat more protein
You’ll eat up to 500 calories less per day when at least 30 % of the calories you eat is from protein and… You increase your body’s fat burning metabolism every time you eat fiber & protein because your body has to burn a lot of calories just to digest the protein & fiber you eat plus…
Protein speeds up your weight loss by helping you build and/or maintain lean muscle that also raises your fat-burning metabolism and…
The main reason why people lose weight fast on high protein diets is because Protein suppresses appetite by keeping you fuller longer.
8. Drink water
Recent research now shows that including more water and less dairy in your in your diet may make it easier to lose those extra pounds and burn fat without cutting back too much on calories. It is confirmed that drinking at a minimum of a gallon of water a day will reduce extra body weight or mass.
One of the most exciting findings of this new research is diets that are dairy-rich will help you almost double the rate of weight loss as compared to dairy-poor diets.
9. Limit your salt
Consuming more than the recommend 2500mg (1 tablespoon) of sodium each day will cause you to retain water and gain weight (bloating)
When you limit the amount of sodium you eat your body will begin to expel some that unwanted water weight.
10. Get more active
Don’t Worry, getting more active doesn’t mean you have to sign up to start participating in marathons regularly! Adding a little physical activity to your daily routine will help you start losing weight quicker than you can imagine.
I will have a couple of posts for you tomorrow so stay tuned. Have a great evening and have a great and productive week ahead!
