Read on to learn more!

Your Body is a Machine and It Needs to Rest

People complain that they have difficulty sleeping and this can result in a build up of cortisol and insulin. Both hormones can show down burning calories and worse, pack on pounds. For this reason alone, it is important to set a sleep schedule. Doctors recommend eight (8) hours of sleep.

Losing weight by incorporating healthy eating habits should be built into your daily plan. This disciplinary process is vitally important to help you burn fat, and manage everyday stress to avoid serious medical issues.  Sugar is a no-no. So avoid it like the plaque. L

Exercise – Sounds Hard But It Isn’t

Shed pounds: Exercise can help you lose weight. Go to a gym!  Take up cycling. But remember to set up a schedule each day to incorporate at least 30 minutes and remember to include cardiovascular exercises. You will burn calories. Combined with some weight and strength training, eventually, you will not only feel better but look your best.

Adding supplements to your routine can help. Check with your doctor before adding anything to your diet.

Eat fruits and vegetables. Select dehydrated fruits and vegetables in place of potato chips and pretzels. Incorporate fiber into your plan as well.  Psyllium husk is wonderful. It can help lower your cholesterol and help lose weight.  Fiber is an added benefit. Remember, it takes time to digest fiber so drink plenty of water! c

Water Is Essential

Drink plenty of water which can flush out toxins and help to burn more calories.  The recommended amount of water to drink each day is around six-eight glasses. For some people this is difficult. It is best to gradually increase your water intake so as to not discourage or frustrate you. Add a slice of lemon, lime, cucumber, or berries. Drinking enough water will ward off dehydration and prevent weight gain.

Junk Foods – Bad, Unhealthy and Lead to Weight Gain

We have already addressed that it is essential to avoid sugar. The same holds true for sodas and diet drinks. Diet drinks contain high amounts of sodium and chemicals that nature did not intend for humans to ingest. Furthermore, you will pack on pounds very fast as the calorie intake is high.

Avoid eating carbs. Bread, rice, and pasta are all rich in carbohydrates that can increase your insulin levels. Select proteins, including lean meats, and foods right in fiber, especially vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts.

Sticking with this plan can help prevent many underlying diseases and conditions. Make this a fun project to stick with for the rest of your life.
