Weight Loss Articles
You’ve heard of, or maybe even have tried, some of the fad diets out there like the HCG diet, the Lemonade diet, Paleo, Ketogenic and many more. All of these promise fast, simple weight loss. While you may have lost weight, ultimately the weight comes back, leaving your health in more or less the same condition, or worse. There are four key components in any healthy, effective and lasting weight loss program.
Nutrition, Behavioral Shifts and Hydration
Nutrition is the first order of business to lose weight fast and safely, while maintaining optimal health. Normally 90% of weight loss is dependent on what you eat, how much you eat, the intervals between eating as well as your hydration state. When you begin to practice healthy balanced nutrition, your body’s physiology can be restored to its optimal performance. We recommend choosing low glycemic carbs along with lean or very lean proteins and consuming more healthy fats rich in mono-saturated oils such as high quality olive oil and Omega-3 fatty acids found in flax and oily cold water fish such as salmon, mackerel and sardines. It has been shown that your metabolic rate can be optimized by eating more frequently. We recommend eating smaller quantities of low glycemic food every 3 to 4 hours. It is also important to eat within 30 to 60 minutes after waking up each day. Staying hydrated lessens hunger, helps your body to restore balance and perform at its highest level. We recommend about a gallon of non-caffeinated fluids per day, half being water; together setting you up for long-term weight loss success.
