How To Survive The Holidays Without Gaining An Ounce
This time of year, food temptation seems to lurk around every corner, not to mention the stress of our over-busy schedules. Stress destroys our waistlines because it stops us from making healthier choices.
The biggest issue I face when it comes to helping people lose weight isn't teaching them what to eat. Most of us already know we need to avoid alcohol, too many rich desserts and that we should fill up on healthy foods like vegetables, drink lots of water and exercise daily to help us navigate through these tough times. The bigger issue is that it's not real physical hunger that causes us to reach for our favorite "bad" foods but rather head hunger or a sense of 'Victory Lap' entitlement eating (you lost weight and feel you deserve to eat whatever you want). Head hunger, moods and emotions (stress or feeling overwhelmed is the worst emotion but even happiness can do this) also impacts our choices and destroys months of hard work.
That's not even the worst news. Once we start eating recklessly we can't stop eating the wrong foods. But there's great news to counteract the bad news. For the past 25 years I have used these 5 proven Metabolic Boosting techniques that will help you navigate through the holidays without gaining an ounce!
I tell my client's to EXPECT to fall, as it's human nature and we just can't be 100% on when it comes to eating clean. Put these proven techniques into action so you're ready when you do fall, and since you won't gain weight using them, you won't need to punish yourself after by spending countless hours in the gym.
These techniques cause weight loss because they trick your body into burning more calories even when you're not working out. Who doesn't need to boost their metabolism? You can lose up to 1 pound per day safely following these tips. Stuck in a weight loss rut? These tips will help you burst through that weight loss plateau that's keeping you from achieving you goals.
Here are top 5 proven Metabolic Boosting techniques that cause weight loss. They are 100% effective if you do them right!
1. If you bite it, WRITE IT!
Write every single morsel down that you bite even if you only eat a little! Use the pad on your cell phone if need be so you're never without a place to write it down
.2. 12 hours of not eating is critical each day.
Timing is everything. Choose the 12 hours each day that you'll eat throughout the holiday season. This helps keep you on track because it curbs the reckless eating that takes place after legal eating hours. Waiting to eat our first meal in the morning helps to reboot our metabolism and helps us to burn fat versus store fat.
3. Skip your usual breakfast and boost metabolism instead by drinking a LynFit Complete Protein Shake that will feed the muscle but starve the fat and has shown to boost metabolism 25%.
THIS IS CRITICAL the day after "not so good" eating and if you're trying to lose weight. Go thick to get thin! Bulk up your shake with ice. British researchers found that people who sipped thicker protein shakes felt fuller than those who sipped thinner versions. Even the drinks that had the same calorie count! Simply add 5-6 ice cubes to your shake. Need LynFit Complete Protein Shake recipes? Go HERE for more!
4. Maximize your metabolism for maximum calorie and fat burning doing metabolic workouts.
Work out on an empty stomach and take (2) LynFit Cutting Edge fat burners before your workout to help burn the calories you ate last night. Contrary to what you might hear, when it comes to losing weight, working out on an empty stomach is the best way to burn fat UNLESS you're trying to bulk up.
What's a Metabolic Workout? If it doesn't say "Metabolic", it isn't!
5. Prevent weight gain by controlling and balancing blood sugar levels.
Taking LynFit Carb Edge will give you an edge over carbs because it contains an all-natural ingredient called Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract. Taking these 30 minutes before a meal will not only help you control hunger and cravings but it also literally paralyzes the enzymes that digest starch so carbs cannot be broken down into sugar and stored as fat. Taking (1) LynFit Carb Edge with Phase 2 White Kidney Bean Extract before your meal can block 65% of the unwanted carbs without gastric distress, according to a study published in Nutrition Business Journal.
The secret to "Not Gaining An Ounce This Holiday Season" is boosting your metabolism so your burn more calories, even at rest. That way you control your hunger and cravings so they don't get the best of you, and remember, perform 3 Metabolic Workouts per week!
