My Weight Loss Course:
It’s true. These are all weight loss tips you can find on the internet these days.
Probiotic we recommend:
(that is an affiliate link btw so I get a very measly % if you buy. It’s no extra cost to you).
And while there are all sorts of pills, potions, and theories out there, here are some tips that are actually backed by science!
Let’s start with the obvious first…
What you’re eating matters.
And one of the most important things you can be eating, is more protein.
Diets high in protein have also been shown to cut late night cravings in half, reduce obsessive dieting thoughts by 60%, and make you feel so full that you naturally eat 441 fewer calories per day.
It is also helps preserve lean muscle mass and helps stop muscle loss when cutting weight.
The best sources are whole eggs, salmon, lean chicken, and grass feed beef depending on what diet you choose.
Also, eat tons of low carb vegetables.
Besides the amazing micronutrients they provide, they will also supply the body with a steady source of fiber.
Studies show that fiber (especially viscous fiber) can increase satiety and help you control your weight over the long-term (38, 39).
Your momma was right about eating your greens.
Oh, and don’t forget about water.
Dieters who were given 17oz of water 30 minutes before meals consumed 44% fewer calories than those who didn’t.
It’s also been shown to give a 24-30% boost in metabolism over a period of 1- 1½ hours after drinking.
So not only is water great for skin and overall health, it can also help you lose weight.
Weight loss is not just about what you eat, but it’s also about what’s going on inside your body.
Take a probiotic.
Both human and animal studies have shown that normal-weight people have different gut bacteria than those who are overweight or obese.
During a 3-month study period, women who took probiotics lost 50% more weight compared to the group taking a dummy pill (placebo). They also continued to lose weight during the weight maintenance phase of the study.
So take a probiotic or perhaps some apple cider vinegar to help your gut out. I will link some of the best resources in the description.
What about workouts?
While there is no real connection between exercise and weight loss per se, it can be helpful because:
• It helps prevent the down-regulation of metabolism – which is where the metabolism slows down when you cut calories
• It gives an added calorie burn to your day
• Better overall health and cardiovascular system.
Exercise 3 times a week for best results.
Also, consider drinking black coffee or green tea before your workouts.
They have been shown to help burn more fat and increase work output during exercise.
Some final tips that seems work well for people:
Chew gum immediately after eating a meal.
Studies have shown that chewing gum lowers the desire for sweets and salty snacks and will decrease hunger between meals (study, study)
So right after having a big meal or when those cravings hit, throw in a piece of sugar free gum.
Soups work really well.
We already discussed the benefits of water intake, protein, and low carb veggies when losing weight.
Combine all of these into a delicious chicken and veggie soup to get the benefits of all three in a single meal.
Plus, soup is incredibly inexpensive and can last for weeks if properly stored!
Oh and don’t forget to sleep.
Studies show that poor sleep is one of the strongest risk factors for obesity, being linked to an 89% increased risk of obesity in children, and 55% in adults (43).
8 hours a night, because your health does depend on it!
