So you’ve decided that its time to lose those love handles and need a little help. What can you do to increase that burn? Try these tricks so that you are on your way and don’t have to listen to those testimonials on TV from the weight loss programs.
- Down 12 to 16 glasses of water per day and drink decaf oolong tea. Before bed skip the tea and try hot water with the juice of one lemon, a teaspoon of parsley and a pinch of cayenne. It increases calorie burning while you sleep and prevents water retention.
- Supplements. Probiotics maintain a healthy balance of bacteria in your digestive tract. B vitamins lower cortisol and stimulate metabolism. High calcium diets lead to greater weight loss. Vitamin D deficiency makes it harder to lose weight. Omegas help stabilize blood sugar and encourage fat metabolism.
- Sleep 7 to 8 hours a night. When you sleep too little, you get hungrier and overeat.
- Double your workouts. In the am concentrate on core exercises and at the end of the day do a cardio workout.
Set realistic goals for yourself, sit next to a bathroom, get to know the staff at the gym and the health food store. Everything is worth trying at least once. This is your body and your time, grab it!
