Fast, healthy weight loss is actually slow



Those having a vested interest in selling products for weight loss solutions tend to conceal the fact that there is no way of losing weight quickly. Reducing weight is a slow process and that is the way it is meant to be. Remember that you did not put on all the flab in a day and therefore, there is no way that you will lose it immediately. Excess weight cannot be wished away. It requires a concerted effort towards eating right and exercise.

If you are looking for a natural weight loss solution and wish to avoid weight loss medications, you should pay attention to the following.

Water

Water is a natural appetite suppressant and keeps the body hydrated. Dehydration often gives rise to false signs of hunger. Moreover, water acts as a catalyst in the metabolism of stored fat so that the kidneys can process waste easily. If you do not drink water in sufficient quantity, the liver, starts helping the kidney in the elimination process instead of metabolizing fat. This diversion of a dedicated role of the liver stops the natural conversion of fat into energy, leading to accumulation of fat and lethargy. Additionally, drinking ice cold water, results in lowering the body temperature. The body has to work towards raising the body temperature, which results in burning more calories.

Breakfast and Lunch

Breakfast should be the most important meal of the day. Burning all the calories that you have consumed during breakfast is easy since you have a long day ahead of you, with specific tasks to perform. Lunch is also relatively early in the day and therefore can be a sizeable meal that you consume. But make sure that in this meal you keep a track of the calories you consume. Breakfast and lunch should be directly dependent upon the level of activity you indulge in at your job.

Fiber, Fats, Proteins and Carbohydrates

Insoluble fiber cannot be digested by the body and simply passes through the body. Fiber not only satiates but also provides the much needed bulk for easy bowel movements. Eat enough of fruits, broccoli, brown rice, beans and nuts to add adequate amounts of fiber to your diet.

Not all fats are bad for health. Good fats contain fatty acids, which actually help in burning fat and in preventing disease. Salmon, mackerel, herrings and sardines are excellent sources of fatty acids.

Similarly carbohydrates are good and bad too. Fruits, vegetables and whole grains give a feeling of fullness and also contain very moderate quantities of carbohydrates.

Proteins rich foods like shrimps, low fat cottage cheese, yoghurt and skimmed milk provide the much needed muscle mass and also help in burning more calories.

While choosing your foods try to stick to organic foods, as much as you can, rather than processed or fast foods. Organic herbs like ginger, garlic and ginseng form a part of herbal weight loss regime that can be effective in reducing weight naturally.

The emphasis should be on eating regularly but in small quantities. In as far as weight loss is concerned fast actually means slow because ‘quick and dirty’ weight loss will rebound.

  12. Hello, This is Mary

    I am 36 years old with 2 toddlers. My youngest just started day care last week- which still feels a little strange. I haven’t had this much time to myself in years. First thing I want to do is lose the extra pounds I put on during the last pregnancy. One of the girls next door has suggested I join her walking group two days a week. After my first pregnancy I lost around 35 pounds using the Herbalife products, but when I called the man that sold them to me three years ago he told me this week he doesn’t sell them anymore. He told me to look on the internet. It’s disappointing because he was really nice and he called me regularly to make sure I was using their products correctly. It was nice to have someone checking in with me every week to see how I was and it kept me motivated.

    I searched on the internet for someone that sells Herbalife in New Jersey. I found many websites but I don’t want
    just to buy the products, I want to find someone trustworthy that sells the products so I can also meet them and get started again.

    Could anybody here recommend someone in New Brunswick?
    .

    Thanks, Mary

  13. Hi Mary,

    >From one mom to another I think I have a solution for you!! I want to lose 40 pounds, and I’ve lost 28 so far!!! I am feeling fantastic and have more energy than I did when I was in college. I went through three different Herbalife distributors until I found the person I felt really actually cared about me and helped me to start getting results. The bottom line was that I wanted to find somebody that could offer me good prices, but that could also check in with me to make sure I was doing ok.

    I used to drive two hours to meet with my first distributor in West Haven, Connecticut. I even brought the girls with me a few times because I couldn’t find a babysitter. Today my Herbalife coach does everything over the phone and it is much easier with my busy schedule. You can order Herbalife online on his website, you get the shakes a few days after with FedEx and then you can setup a telephone meeting once a week to make sure you are doing the program right.

    His name is Danny Castello and his website is http://www.goshape.com. The number is (310) 928- 3835. He and his girlfriend Michaela actually do most of the coaching together as a team, but she has an Herbalife site as well: http://www.puresteps.com. He does most of the motivation on the call and gives you important facts regarding nutrition. He can be a bit tough but he really wants you to get results. She is a bit softer- so they make a good combination. Actually I also recommend joining his newsletter first so you can see the articles on nutrition. They also have videos so you can see who they are before actually calling them. Its nice because they actually use the products too. You can see on their websites.

    Hope this helps!

    Liz
