It’s that time of year when swimsuits, shorts, t-shirts and sandals come out of the closet and are just waiting to be worn. For some that brings great joy for others not so much. You know who you are, and if you are like me you dread putting on that shirt because it shows off your rubber band arms or your post babybump(also known as belly fat). So what do you do to remedy this situation? Do you just go in hiding till summer is over, or do you do something about it? Hopefully, your answer is do something about! I mean come on summer, sun, water, fun. No one wants to miss out on that! So here are 5 ways to a healthier, lighter you along with diet and exercise!
1. Detox! Yes, that word we all dislike. This step is super important especially if you want to rid yourself of unwanted weight. If you have never done a Detox before I suggest starting out with a 7 day or 10 day detox. A brand I have had good results from is Renew Life. You can find this brand at most health food stores or online. When you detox you our essentially allowing your body to cleanse itself of unwanted waste and/or toxins. Which allows your body to rid itself of poisons that are literally making you sick. When you get rid of the poisons you also rid yourself of excess weight.
2.Take a probiotic. These are helpful because they put good bacteria into your gut or stomach area. Meaning the more good bacteria you have the less room for the bad bacteria you have. The less bad bacteria you have the better. More good means a boost in immune health which helps in weight loss.
3. Water, water who has the water! Water is nature’s remedy for weight loss. Drinking water not only hydrates you but also helps burn fat. Make sure to drink at least 8 glasses a day especially during the hot summer months. You will really be helping yourself in more ways then one.
4. Add an omega-6 fatty acid also known as gamma linolenic acid has been shown to stimulate the body’s ability to burn fat. I personally use Barleen’s Flaxseed oil. You can find this at any health food store.
5. Take a mutilvitamin and mineral complex with potassium. This aids in nutrient deficiency and is important in energy production. Key to any weight loss regimen. I personally shop online at http://www.erinsherbs.com because their prices and customer service are outstanding and their selection is not bad as well.Otherwise any health food store will carry them. I use Garden of Life because it is organically grown food in a tablet form.
Here is to you and your health!
