You Too Can Lose Weight Effortlessly

Information from The Mayo clinic
You Too Can Lose Weight and Be Satisfied – Effortlessly
  1. In a recent study about  Vitamin D3 it was discovered that there was a connection between obesity and low levels of Vitamin D3. The research went on to say that getting enough Vitamin D3 will release more leptin. Leptin tells your body you are full. Vitamin D3 also triggers weight loss in the belly reducing the amount of cortisol and storing less fat. Supplementing with 5,000-10,000 IU’s should get you the extra D3 that you need.

  1. L-Carnitine  is an important amino acid that helps increase muscle mass and decrease your fat. It works by converting fat into energy and helps to metabolize sugar. Your body can’t make enough on it’s own so taking 1000mgs per day will help you to metabolize fat.

  1. Polyphenols  are also great at boosting your metabolism naturally. You can find polyphenols in green tea, black tea, blueberries, pomegranates, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and even dark chocolate.

  1. Quercetin is an amazing antioxidant that helps regulate blood sugar. It’s found in apples, onions, olives, olive oil, parsley, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, red grapes, green leafy vegetables and broccoli. Have some quercetin with every meal…it’s easy to do it! The slower you metabolize your sugar the more successful you will be at losing and maintaining your weight.

  1. Displaced Hunger  – Are you really hungry? Next time you feel hunger pains ask yourself that question. What you might be experiencing is dehydration. Have something to drink and see if you are still hungry. This little tip may actually save you more calories than you think – if you think before you eat.

  1. Omega-3’s  trigger fat-burning in your cells. It also works a lot like Vitamin D by improving your leptin and turning off your hunger pangs. With omega-3’s you’ll want to make sure you are taking a supplement of at least 1,000-2,000 mgs because it’s difficult to get as much as you need in your diet alone.

  1. Protein – Eating plenty of protein will keep you full and satisfied, will give you energy, boost your metabolism and not turn into fat. Your regular grocery store fish and meats lack the amino acids, vitamins and minerals that grassfed beef and wild caught fish contain. You can purchase hormone free, chemical free, organic varieties online and at your local health food stores.

  1. Vitamin B’s  are a necessity if you are stressed. When you are stressed you eat without realizing. You don’t concentrate on your food and may eat foods that you normally wouldn’t. A complex B supplement could be all you need to be less stressed and lose weight.

Did You Know There Are Hidden Culprits of Weight Gain?

  1. If you are still struggling with your weight even after trying the above you might want to have your thyroid or your hormones checked. This could be keeping you from the body you desire and a healthy weight.

  1. Some medications will also have the ugly side effect of unwanted weight gain. Check your prescriptions and speak with your doctor or pharmacist.

  1. Lastly, make sure you are getting 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Lack of sleep causes your metabolism to slow down. Also when you’re tired you will grab foods to give you more energy which are usually simple carbs like chips.
