Five Super Simple Fat Loss Tips That Have Nothing to Do With Exercise
Fat loss isn’t rocket science. I know we love to make our problems seem much bigger than they really are, but when you really look at them they’re typically easy to solve. And that’s often the case with fat loss.
Of course, exercising will help with your fat loss goals and with these 4 minute workouts, you really have no excuse not to.
But whether you’re exercising or not, you should start by drinking a lot more water. You’ve heard it a million times before and it works. Drinking more water fills you up and does all sorts of great things for your body. Start with two cold glasses as soon as you wake up and aim for at least 8-10 glasses a day (more if you drink a lot of coffee).
Here are five more super simple fat loss tips you can easily follow:
1) Stop guzzling liquid sugar. Yes, I mean soft drinks and juices and bottles of iced tea loaded with high fructose corn syrup. For the most part, a 12 oz can of cola is 150 calories of pure sugar. Have a couple of those a day and you’re setting yourself for weight gain.
2) I’ve written it a gazillion times and I will continue to – eat breakfast! If you want to make fat loss easy then make sure you start your metabolism off on the right foot.
3) Eat more fruit. Aim for at least 5 servings a day.
4) Eat more veggies. Again, aim for at least 5 servings a day.
5) Stop eating so many processed foods. If it comes in a box from your grocery store it’s most likely processed. The fresher the foods the better.
In my experience most people struggle with eating enough fruits and vegetables. I know that I can’t always get the recommended 8-10 servings of fruits of vegetables per day (and my kids certainly don’t), especially when I’m on the road or travelling.
On the days when I do it’s when I prepare my food the night before. That makes it much easier.
But that’s not always possible. To be honest, sometimes I’m just too tired or too lazy.
So to help ensure that I get the benefits of eating enough fruits and vegetables throughout the day I make sure I use a whole food based multi (do not confuse this with the “vitamins” you buy at the grocery store, they’re typically filled with fillers and other nasty stuff).
The whole food based multi that my family and I take is Prograde Nutrition’s VGF 25+ because it is made from 25 WHOLE veggies, greens and fruits. Easy peasy.
Look, nothing beats eating whole, organic foods, but if you’re not getting enough servings, VGF 25+ is a no-brainer.
Making it easy peasy to get your servings of fruits and veggies in, your friend,
