Yes, adding or increasing these three little factors can have a dramatic impact on your body, health, self-esteem, and overall mental attitude.
Drink More Water
Your body is composed of primarily water. Water makes up your heart, blood, muscles, brain, kidneys, lunges, eyes, bones, etc. In addition, your body uses water to flush toxins out, neutralize acids and dilute excess acids. It’s quite obvious that water is a critical element and most people are severely dehydrated and not even aware of it.
Mild dehydration can slow down your metabolism. Without proper hydration levels your body can become acidic and store toxins in the fat stores, halting fat loss dead in its tracks. Drinking colas, coffee, teas, etc. is not the hydration answer. Caffeine, in many of the drinks people choose to quench thirst, can cause further dehydration.
For a metabolic boost and to flush fat you should be drink pure and fresh filtered water. Just adding 16 ounces of water between your meals can give you the hydration-edge you need to get fat moving and to lose weight fast.
Eat More Fiber
A good part of effective weight loss is having high-fiber food moving through your system fluently. By adding more high-fiber foods to your diet it can keep your bowels moving correctly, it will keep you fuller longer and it will aid in fat burning. EatingWell.com reveals, “Recent research in the Journal of Nutrition suggests eating more fiber as a way to prevent weight gain or even encourage weight loss. Over the course of the two-year study, the researchers found that boosting fiber by 8 grams for every 1,000 calories resulted in about 4 ½ pounds of weight lost.” Most people don’t eat near the amount of fiber needed for fat loss or overall health. To improve both of these areas, aim for 25-30 grams of fiber a day from whole grains, brown rice, fruits, legumes, etc. Just adding more fiber to your diet can help you lose weight fast.
Get More Exercise
Getting active will boost your metabolism, increase endorphins, and will ease stress. For overall fat loss, cardiovascular exercise should be included in your exercise program. Shoot for 20 minutes four times a week as a starter. When you feel you have adapted to that cardio format, increase your intensity and/or duration. Cardio works best for fat loss when you keep it new and fresh. Choose an activity you enjoy or that you can do with a friend. If you can keep your exercise of choice fun, you are more likely to continue with it and lose weight fast.
