How to Lose Weight Naturally
There are many things you can do to lose weight. You can lower calories. Decreasing your fat intake helps. You can cut carbs. You can exercise more. But, there are 3 critical things you simply MUST do if you want to lose body fat and keep your metabolism soaring. Here they are…
Include This in Every Meal to Lose Weight Naturally
To get a jump start on weight loss be sure to include a lean complete protein with each and every meal. Why? Well, first your body is primarily composed of protein and water. Every fiber of your being is composed of protein.
Also, protein is essential when your calories are low, as it protects you from losing metabolically active lean muscle mass. If you lose lean muscle tissue, you’ll lower your metabolism (burn less calories). Protein also decreases your appetite for carbs and sugar, and makes you feel fuller longer.
In addition, protein blunts insulin levels from rising excessively when you eat carbs. If you want to know how bodybuilders and figure competitors get so lean for their competitions, they eat enough protein!
Protein sources you can include in your eating program are:
|Egg whites||1 egg yolk per 4-5 eggs||Turkey breast|
|Chicken breast||Lean red meat||Bison|
|Low-fat cottage cheese||2% milk||Low-sugar yogurt|
|Whey protein||MetRx MRP||MyoPlex Lite MRP|
How Much Protein Do You Need?
The general recommended daily allowance for protein was established for sedentary people to avoid protein deficiencies. To lose body fat, build metabolically active lean muscle tissue, and improve health you will need more than the basic RDA’s 0.35 – .5 grams per pound of body weight.
Many people rarely eat enough protein due to the many myths the medical community shoves down our throats. Your body needs protein for cellular function, proper muscle growth, and tissue repair.
The media will have you believe that protein, or eating too much protein, is harmful to your kidneys. This is just more misinformation begin forced down your throat. The human body is designed to have complete proteins for many functions. Avoiding protein will do you more harm!
Here’s the protein secret. Drink water! Remember, your body is primarily composed of protein and water. Eating too much protein and NOT drinking enough water is harmful. Drink your water and you’ll be healthy and skinny.
Have Plenty of These With Your Meals
To boost fat loss eat 1-2 servings of non-starchy veggies (NSV) with each meal and snack. Most NSVs are high in fiber, which plays a critical role in a healthy digestive system. The fiber content of NSVs slow down the digestion process by taking up space in the digestive system, which lowers the glycemic index of the meal. A healthy digestive system keeps you slim and trim.
NSVs are loaded with vitamins and minerals and can reduce the risk of certain diseases such as heart disease, some forms of cancer and it can help lower the bad cholesterol.
NSVs, just as protein, blunt the insulin surge caused by carbs. In addition, NSV are nutrient-packed, but VERY low in calories, yet highly satisfying. NSV can be considered a free food, negative calorie, zero calorie, etc. Basically, you can eat them until they come out your ears and you won’t gain weight, you’ll lose weight.
NSV sources you can include in your eating program are:
|Green beans||Collard greens||Spinach|
|Celery||Brussel sprouts||Leafy greens|
To Lose Weight Naturally, Eating These Are a Must
To lose body fat, boost energy, and regain health the most important factor when deciding what to eat is whether the food is natural or processed. You see, man-made food is processed, unnatural, causes your body to store fat, creates toxins, etc.
Generally, if you can hunt it, pick it, gather it, harvest it, fish it you can eat it. These are natural foods. You can’t pick a Cheerio from a tree, but you can pick an apple from a tree.
On the flip side, processed foods are be quickly identified because they come in packages, bags, cans, boxes, wrappers and they will have a huge list of ingredients (98% chemicals and 2% the actual food).
So, a general rundown of natural foods can include lean meats, fish, shellfish, fruits, NSV, root veggies, legumes, beans, nuts and seeds, natural starches such as yams, sweet potatoes, potatoes, brown rice, etc.
If it was here 200 years ago, unlike Pop Tarts and Eggo’s, then it’s quality food that can aid in fat loss.
