It’s that time of year again, the holiday season. Time for family and friends, and let’s not forget all the food. What is time spent with family and friends if it is not around the dinner table with enough food to feed a small country? At the end of it all, you are feeling quite bloated and your jeans are a lot more snug than before you went into the holiday season. Then the New Year will be upon us and all those goals to lose weight.
The road to weight loss is more than just cutting back on the number of calories you consume. To kickstart your weight loss program, it is beneficial to do a detox. Over time, waste products build up in our system which generally contain toxins. This is especially the case if you eat a lot of processed food. These toxins make it difficult for the digestive system to do its job properly which may leave you feeling bloated, low on energy and fatigued. These toxins also make losing weight difficult. There are various products on the market to help with this detox process. Just make sure to choose a safe one. Only choose one with safe ingredients and from a trustworthy manufacturer which Research Verified reviews will tell you more about.
Then follow these tips to get the body you want:
It’s true, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. This meal will set the stage for the rest of your day. Often, skipping breakfast can leave you feeling hungry for most of the day which will most likely have a negative effect on your food choices. Eating breakfast has been shown to improve concentration and performance, as well as lowering cholesterol levels. But make sure your breakfast of choice is not loaded with sugar. Rather choose a breakfast that consists of a protein and whole grains. Eggs with whole-wheat toast is a great choice as is oatmeal.
While dieting to lose weight is generally associated with a cut in the number of calories we consume each day, not eating enough calories is also linked to weight gain. Not eating enough can send your body into starvation mode where it either tries to store what you are eating for energy or you start to lose muscle mass. Not eating enough can also slow down your metabolism which will negatively impact your weight loss efforts. So make sure you eat the right number of calories for your body type.
Eat Full-Fat Dairy Products
Yes, full-fat dairy is actually better for you than the low-fat or fat-free options. The high-fat content should help keep you feeling fuller for longer and it also slows down the release of sugar into the bloodstream which keeps you from overeating. Generally, those who do not consume enough fat often end up eating foods that are high in sugar or refined carbohydrates. Low-fat products may also contain more sugar – they have to make them taste appealing somehow.
Eat Whole Foods
This is one of the most important aspects when it comes to weight loss. Avoid processed food and eat whole foods instead. It’s all about a change in lifestyle and becoming healthier overall, and you will start to see the weight falling off. Processed foods also have a negative effect on your gut health, nevermind your waistline. Single ingredient foods are the way to go. And make sure to keep it balanced and include all the major food groups in your diet. Eat protein, whole grains (avoid white flour and grains), fruits, and veggies.
Healthy eating is the basis for a healthy lifestyle and where most of your attention should be focused if you are looking to lose weight. So make these simple changes to the way you eat and see the results.
