4 tips for fat loss

Post to Twitter

Last week I did 4 tips everyday for sleep, Let’s start the 20 fat loss tips with 4 here.

 

 
1. Get Protein/Fats in for breakfast.
First thing in the morning your blood sugar levels are low, and believe it or not your body is ‘burning fat’ – the word Breakfast literally means, “Breaking the fast”.
If you go for toast, cereal or anything high carb,
you literally switch from fat burning to high blood sugar and fat storing mode. Protein and Fats also keep you fuller for longer, meaning less snacking mid-morning.
.
2. Big glass of water first thing.
Whilst we’re not dehydrated first thing, we are moving that way. A glass of water starts hydration, wakes us and our digestive system up. Squeeze some fresh lemon or lime juice into it to benefit the digestive system further.
.
3. Prepare your own meals as often as possible.
Like anything in life, the more we’re in control,
well …… the more we’re in control!!
Not being prepared tends to place our choices in the hands of others, or pot luck – not really the best way if we’re looking to shed some weight. Own your Decisions!
.
4. Don’t eat when stressed.
This is any form of stress. I’ve talked before how ‘being stressed’ puts us into our Sympathetic Nervous System or ‘Fight or Flight’ – this moves blood away from the digestive system which slows down the breakdown of foods. Often results in wind, stomach aches and poor digestion. Either look to slow your mind/thoughts down, move environment to a more relaxed place, or lay off food until you can – seriously it will have that negative effect on digestion and nutrient absorption. ….. Regularly stressed? Could be why you struggle to lose weight.
 
And in answer to those who say “I’ve lost weight before when going through a stressful time” …. that’s mostly muscle tissue you’ve broken down – prolonged stress and cortisol release is catabolic …. it breaks down muscle tissue, and screws up hormonal balance …. not good
