2018 Wellness & Weight Loss Trends That Actually Work
I don’t know about you, but I didn’t make a change until I was sick and tired of being sick and tired of my weight controlling my life. Until I learned how my metabolism worked, I couldn’t lose an ounce, and everything I was doing was all wrong!
The only way to keep the weight off is to continue doing what you did to lose it. That was a game changer for me because I am not one of those people who can make clean decisions all the time. I am busy, busy, busy, so I always seem to end up skipping meals or eating the wrong thing due to intense cravings (which was my body saying, I need nutrients – not calories necessarily, but good nutrition that provides nutrients).
None of that has changed. I’ve lost over 40 pounds and kept it off, and I’m in the best shape of my life, despite the fact that I’m turning 50 this year (which is a whole different segment). Losing weight is tougher now than when I was 30, but there are some healthy ways to lose weight and keep it off, no matter how old you are or how sluggish your metabolism is.
This year trends are changing. Consumers are getting smarter to the fact that they can't eat whatever they want when they want to if they want to lose weight and be healthy.
From conflicting media reports (also known as fake news), and our own failed attempts to lose weight or burn off dangerous belly fat and keep it off, we all have become skeptical when it comes to the efficiency and safety of supplements to support our weight loss. Finally, our attitudes toward dieting and weight management are shifting to more of a holistic, health-focused ideal, and our on-the-go, busy, hectic lifestyles command that we use weight loss tools that make losing weight faster and easier and a whole lot more delicious. I insist on wanting natural-based products that contain research-backed ingredients. Bottom line, I need to see and feel a difference the same day I start that not only help me reach my goals faster, but also help me stay focused and motivated to continue doing what needs to be done. Show me a mom who works, and I’ll show you a woman who needs help!
When it comes to reaching our goals in 2018, think Mind, Mouth, Muscle!
What's Out: Not spending time thinking about our minds and thoughts
What's In: Protecting our minds and brains from harm caused by stress, which also helps us stay positive. This is the step that most women miss and it changes everything.
The most important things we should take are adaptogens for stress relief. This also helps address the underlying issues that prevent us from losing weight—hunger cravings and cortisol levels slowing metabolism caused by imbalanced hormones.
We are all looking for healthy ways to combat the stresses of daily life, and adaptogens (found in LynFit Thyro-Boost) fill this role. Adaptogens refer to plants and compounds that offer support for both physical and emotional well-being.
Now that we are more aware of the importance of health and wellness than ever before, we know that we need to take steps to empower ourselves in all areas. We can’t stop the stress in our lives, but we can change how our body reacts to stress. There are some proven, highly effective, natural ways to do this.
The #1 adaptogen I suggest is LynFit Thyro-Boost. Thyro-Boost also helps combat cravings and turns off the hunger switch, while making us feel calm and focused, so you can continue with your busy day.
Thyro-Boost also contains Spirulina (algae) that are loaded with health benefits. The surge toward natural cures and supplements have led to increased interest in the benefits of algae in a range of areas. Plant-based alternative proteins like spirulina make it easier to consume consistently. Spirulina packs a tremendous protein punch which helps fuel the body and preserves lean muscle tissue, preventing the metabolism from slowing down.
Spirulina, in particular, is known for its high concentrations of vegan protein, so if your vegan, Thyro-Boost is a must for you if you want to stay healthy.
What's Out: Junk food, juicing, and snacks like cereal bars that fooled us into thinking they were good for us. All are way too high in sugar which turns on hunger and cravings, making it impossible to not overeat. The spikes in blood sugar levels stop weight loss and make our bodies resist weight loss.
What's In: Smarter, slimming snacks that contain healthy ingredients that are high protein and very low sugar. We now want snacks with prebiotic fiber because it is proven to be so healthy for our entire body.
It’s very important to introduce healthy bacteria into our digestive tract, but we also need to provide the right fuel (high-quality, lean protein) to help those good bacteria thrive. That’s where the prebiotic fiber combines with the clean metabolic boosting whey that’s found only in LynFit Lean Bars comes in. These fibers (inulin and oligofructose) are the only scientifically proven plant-based prebiotics with clinically proven health benefits such as weight loss and management and improved calcium absorption while improving digestive health.
LynFit Lean Bars are the only protein bar that combines top quality whey protein and prebiotic fiber together into a delicious lean, clean protein bar. It is also the best tasting grab-and-go snack, and the only bar that's healthy enough to be a meal replacement, so you never get stuck eating food on the run or skipping a meal. You can now also find it as a syrup if you want to make your own protein bars or add it to your metabolic boosting smoothies.
Seventy percent of our immunity takes place in the gut, and that’s why a healthy gut should be your top priority!
What's Out: Complicated fitness or exercise that requires a lot of time. None of us have any extra time to spare, and that’s why we are failing at fitness.
What's In: Thinking of fitness as the best way to keep the body in working order, because that’s what it does!
It’s a lot easier than we realize, but we tend to overcomplicate things and think we have to kill ourselves to get fit. Nothing could be further from the truth! Don’t get me wrong, it won’t feel like your relaxing, but it’s as simple as 1, 2, 3. Everyone, no matter how old you are, or what ailment your moaning about, needs to do this each day. To your body, it’s not negotiable!
- Walk 10,000 steps daily, seven days a week (you eat seven days a week, you need to move seven days a week)
- Stretch daily to prevent injuries and heal anything that ails you. Recovery Stretch makes this easy, or you can download my free Stretch Cheat Sheet. You don't need anything, but a stretch strap does make it easier if you’re not flexible.
- Weight lift two days weekly to protect your bones. You don’t have to kill yourself, but you do need to use weights to strengthen bones and your body. Prevention is always the best cure for everything.
