Fast weight loss
Creating a healthy, lean body depends on how well each individual woman’s body copes with the demands made on it. This is highly individual: what works for you may not work for your friend, but the important thing is that you understand what works for you.
Many people look to the easy road of fast weight loss by taking dangerous diet pills or other harmful methods however, these are neither safe nor long lasting.
Just follow these 5 Simple How-To's and see how amazingly they work.
- Eat organic meat, fish, eggs, cultured dairy products, and some fruit and veggies.
- Eliminate grains, potatoes, cheap vegetable oils, junk food, and excessive fibre from your diet.
- Eat liberal amounts of organic coconut oil and natural butter - you need them for your youthful skin and alert mind.
- Stop counting calories - the theory of calories is a myth and it does not work.
- Every day, engage in some moderate physical activity (walking, yoga, or Pilates).
The average adult gets only about half of the recommended 20 to 35 grams of fiber a day. Why? Our way of life has changed over the past 20 years, and so have our diets. We’re eating more meals away from home and on the run and we’re paying less attention to making healthy food choices.
Fiber helps the body remove toxins. A high fiber and high antioxidant diet combined with the right mix of carbohydrates, proteins, and vitamins leads to healthy weight loss.
Add Fiber Carefully
- If you have any illnesses, especially intestinal problems, be sure to check with your physician before increasing your fiber intake.
- If you’ve been eating only 10 grams of fiber a day for years, it’s not a good idea to increase it to 30 grams all at once. This can cause gas, bloating and possibly diarrhea. Instead, up your intake by a few grams of fiber each week. This allows your digestive system to adjust to your new way of eating.
- Increase your intake of water and other fluids, as well. Too little fluid with more fiber may cause constipation.
- A daily multivitamin/mineral supplement is important when following a high-fiber plan, as the diet may decrease the absorption of certain nutrients.
- If you’re not getting the recommended 1,000 mg of calcium through foods (our menus provide approximately this amount), consider a supplement.
Having a BMI (body mass index) over 28 or being substantially overweight (more than 20 pounds) raises the risk of developing diabetes, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), cardiovascular disease, infertility, hypertension, arthritis, or the serious combination of insulin resistance and cardiovascular conditions that characterize metabolic syndrome X. But BMI isn’t everything, since it does not reflect the ratio of body fat to muscle mass. A muscular, athletic woman may have a high BMI but a healthy weight. You won’t know until you test your basal metabolic function, which indicates how efficiently your body converts energy into work.
