These are my top three tips for longer lasting weight loss results. By using these tips, you could save hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars on weight-loss books, tips, paid information, even diet pills, diet plans, and weight loss programs. And you will be a lot happier with the new you.
Eat 5 meals per day.
Make sure you eat 5 meals per day. That means having breakfast, morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, and dinner. Ensure that in doing so, you do not over-indulge during any of these meals.
Eating 5 average meals per day ensures that your body is continually aware that there is food around. This information is processed by the brain as "We have food, therefore we can burn fat." This will cause your metabolism to speed up, to allow your body to burn fat and lose weight.
Missing a meal, on the other hand, will cause your metabolism to slow down and cause your body to start storing fat.
Incorporate green smoothies into your meals.
Replacing one or two of the 5 meals you have per day with a green smoothie will provide your body with the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that it needs to work and function at an optimal level. Green smoothies are blended raw fruit and greens that provide natural sources of all the essential nutrients our body needs.
Remember that it is only when the body has all the necessary nutrients it needs, that it is able to detoxify itself. Detoxification involves getting rid of toxins from the cells and organs of the body, as well as, effecting weight loss. A body that is free of toxins is able to function more effectively.
Simply eating the raw fruit and greens, without blending, will not create the same effect for the body. This is due to the fact that very few people produce enough stomach acid and digestive enzymes to breakdown their food efficiently. Blending ensures that in spite of the lack of enzymes and acid, the body can still benefit from all the nutrients the fruit and greens have to provide.
Drink 8 glasses of water per day.
This is an age old rule that all mothers tell their children, and all teachers tell their students. Water is the most essential part of our diet as our body is made up of almost 70% water. In fact water is crucial in ensuring an effective and prolonged weight loss.
Without replenishing our water source daily, our body will seize to function effectively. Drinking water allows our body, it's organs, and cells to function more effectively, as it enhances the absorption of nutrients by our body; hydrates our skin and mucous membranes; and promotes weight loss and detoxification.
Did you also know that drinking water not only quenches our thirst, but it also suppresses our appetite, improves our digestion, as well as our metabolism.
Start incorporating these three simple and important weight loss tips and you will start experiencing a healthy weight loss. Remember that these three tips ensure a longer lasting and more permanent weight loss without spending hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars on weight-loss books, tips, paid information, diet pills, diet plans, and weight loss programs.
