How to lose weight

Spring is on the way! Ease yourself into your vibrant new SLIM SUMMER regimen!

With Spring well on its way and many people desperate to get their Summer bodies back, the Feelgood Health team has decided to take a look at the most effective and natural (and healthy, of course!) ways to slim down this season.

While you may have easily put on an extra few kilos during Winter, you can just as easily lose them (and keep them off!) before temperatures rise and the bathing suits come out. It’s important to bear in mind that shedding that unwanted weight in the most natural way possible, will not only be beneficial to your appearance (and self-esteem) but also your body and health as a whole.

Here are our TOP TIPS for getting your slim (and healthy!) Summer body back:

  • Eating breakfast is an important habit if you’re trying to lose weight. Research has shown that regular breakfast eaters are more successful at shedding those kilos – and keeping them off!. A great tip is to breakfast on Superfoods Chocolate Chia with an added few spoons of Chia Seeds. Did you know that Chia Seeds fill you up to keep hunger at bay, while at the same time giving you loads of energy?
  • Adding protein to your diet helps your body to burn calories at a higher rate, therefore boosting your metabolism. A high protein diet can also reduce your appetite as protein helps you to feel fuller. Did you know that your protein can come from plants too? You can make healthy smoothies, juices or soups with a plant based protein powder that is suitable for vegans and vegetarians as well as for those who do not eat gluten!
  • Stock up on healthy food and snacks! Instead of reaching for the bag of crisps, rather make sure that you always have a healthy snack on hand in case you get ‘peckish’. Make sure that the snacks that you’re eating are not processed and try and go organic as much as possible! (you don’t want to be munching on preservatives, now do you?) Feelgood Health stocks a wide range of Superfood snacks that will help mineralise the body, minimizing the desire for snacking on sugar rich foods, helping the body get back on track with a healthy lifestyle. 
  • Drink more liquids to help increase the calories that you burn by up to 30%, especially if drunk before meals. Make sure that you’re drinking 6-8 glasses of water daily as this will help keep you hydrated and healthy. Green tea is also known to promote weight loss by boosting the metabolism and reducing the appetite (plus other health benefits). We recommend that you drink 3-4 cups of green tea per day to help fight that extra weight!
  • Replace one meal a day with a meal replacement drink such as the Superfoods Supershakes (Chocolate Boost or Vanilla Mesquite) or Wazoogles Chocolate Moondust or Kung Fu Coffee Super Protein Shakes.
  • Coconut Oil is incredibly effective when it comes to reducing unwanted belly fat as well as boosting the metabolism! Instead of cooking with butter or sunflower oil (for example), rather substitute your fat sources with organic cold pressed coconut oil.
  • Probiotics can improve digestive health by getting rid of unhealthy gut bacteria as well as help to prevent the absorption of dietary fat. Taking a good quality daily probiotic supplement after breakfast will give your digestive system the boost that it needs to assist you in your weight loss efforts!
  • Getting enough sleep needs to become a priority if you are trying to lose weight as sleep deprivation can lead to laziness as well as affect your mood. Studies show that adults who get less than 7 hours of sleep per day are more likely to slack on their weight loss efforts as well as start emotional eating. Science has proven that in order for us to function at an optimal level, we need to be getting 7-9 hours of sleep daily.
  • Exercise, exercise, exercise! If you don’t have a gym membership, don’t worry. There are plenty of ways to physically burn calories, as long as you’re staying active. It’s the little things that count; like taking the flight of stairs instead of using the lift, parking further away from the entrance to work/shopping centre and walking that extra bit or making a daily exercise regimen that you can do at home (even if it’s a walk around the block a day). All of these little exercises add up and the next thing you know, you’ve dropped a kilo!
  • Natural remedies, like EcoSlim and Detox Drops, can help you to lose weight without excessive dieting because they boost the metabolism and improve digestion and healthy liver functioning, therefore helping the body to eliminate dietary and body fat more efficiently, particularly if your system is 'sluggish'. EcoSlim and Detox Drops are most effective when used as part of a healthy eating plan and a regular exercise program and will maximize the effectiveness of any diet and exercise regime. These natural remedies can help you to lose weight and keep it off forever, leaving you feeling slim and full of vitality!

Many experts believe that today's weight problems are caused by a combination of crash diets and unhealthy lifestyles, leading to systemic 'confusion' and sluggish metabolism. Isn't it strange that so many people are always dieting, yet the numbers of obese and overweight people are rising every year? Years of inappropriate dieting have even been shown to result in slow metabolism which can eventually lead to weight gain, even when eating normally!

Instead of focusing only on losing weight, make it your primary goal to nourish your body with healthy food and nutrients and maintain this healthy lifestyle – your body will only respond positively!
