Five Simple Super Food Swaps That Boost Your Health And Weight Loss
When it comes to boosting health or improving our weight loss, it's the small changes that make the biggest impact. That's good news because all you have to do is replace your favorite indulgences with a super food swap to start feeling healthier, more energetic, and a weight-shedding machine.
These specific slimming super swaps are replacements for the Top Five most commonly consumed foods and activities that are a lot less healthy than we care to admit. Challenge yourself to swap out these five foods for slimming superfoods that are so good for you that you'll see and feel changes the same day you start.
SLIMMING SUPERFOOD SWAP #1
Swap out your soda or sports drink (yes, they are just as bad) for bubbly mineral water with lemon. Most soda drinkers crave bubbles, but you can get a healthier fix by drinking water with lemon. It helps reduce uric acid in the joints, aiding in reducing inflammation. Drinking water with lemon also helps to break up mucus.
SLIMMING SUPERFOOD SWAP #2
That little bit of milk, cream, or these gourmet milk imposters that you add to your morning coffee, may be more hazardous to your health and waistline than you realize. Swap out your milks for Vanilla Protein Shake in your morning coffee instead. You'll save fat and calories while enjoying a delicious breakfast treat.
SLIMMING SUPERFOOD SWAP #3
Swap out your so-called healthy juice for a fresh piece of fruit instead. Biting into that fresh piece of fruit won't spike your blood sugar levels. It will provide the much-needed fiber to help keep you feeling fuller longer while making sure things run smoothly, which is super important to health.
SLIMMING SUPERFOOD SWAP #4
Swap out chicken (red meat too) for white fish. You'll save fat and calories and reap the benefits of iodine found in fish that helps boost metabolism. The lighter and whiter the fish, the better for your metabolism.
SLIMMING SWAP #5
Swap out sitting all day for standing during the day. This swap can reduce/slash your risk of abdominal obesity by 47 percent if you stand for ½ your day.
