Lose More Weight With These Three “Weight Loss Wins”
Who isn’t trying to lose a little weight? And deep down we all know there are healthy ways to lose weight, and fad-diets that don’t work long term.
Let’s not talk about specific diets. Let’s talk more about mindset tips and habits, because in the long run these are the only true solutions to lose weight and live healthier. Here are three important tips for healthy weight loss.
1) Maximize your sleep.
Dr. Juan is always talking about the benefits of 7-8 hours of sleep for overall health, including cardiovascular health. But sleep has a tremendous effect on weight loss as well.
Not only can a good night’s sleep help us have the energy and the willpower to eat right and follow an exercise routine (you can’t exercise if you’re exhausted!), it can also reduce the levels of cortisol in our bodies. Cortisol is a stress hormone that studies have shown leads the body to store more abdominal fat, and abdominal fat is never a good thing if we’re trying to lose weight.
Don’t be one of those people who adopts a very rigorous diet but then overlooks getting a good night’s sleep! Long term weight loss is very rarely sustainable unless you are getting the rest you need.
2) Get more Dietary Fiber
Dietary fiber can help you feel fuller and can help with digestion, which can both in turn help with long term weight loss. But the majority of americans don’t get the recommended amount of dietary fiber. That’s bad news, as more and more studies are showing the positive correlation between dietary fiber and cardiovascular health as well.
So what can you eat that’s high in dietary fiber? Well, almost all veggies have dietary fiber. And beans are a fabulous source. There are also many over the counter fiber supplements that are easy to take. Getting enough fiber will help you avoid the ups and downs and hunger that can torpedo long term weight loss.
3) Watch your energy levels.
Losing weight long term is hard work. You are more than capable, but it is hard work. Hard work is impossible if you’re constantly running out of energy. That’s why it’s so important to make sure your body’s micronutritional needs are taken care of while you are trying to lose weight.
Are you getting the vitamins you need? The antioxidants? The vital B vitamins that are so important for helping your cells produce healthy energy?
It’s important you don’t deprive your body of these essential nutrients as it is working to drop weight.
Luckily, you can get all you need from Santo Remedio. We have multivitamin formulas custom made for both men and women. And our standalone B12 formula can help keep your cells happy and producing that workout energy.
Here’s to long term, sustainable, healthy, wonderful weight loss.
