4 Slim Down Tips for any Special Event.

9 Oct

TIP 1.  Eat for fuel not for fun.  Watch the eating out.  If you do, sauce on the side, go for a lean meat with steamed veggies, always ask “no butter, no oil, as healthy as can be please”. You would be shocked at what junk a restaurant will put in your food for flavoring.  DO NOT skip your breakfast! Food before coffee.  Split your lunch into two portions, separate the feedings by 2 hours.  Cut the carbs in the evening. Eating 6 small meals a day will increase your metaboic rate and burn more calories throughout the day.  This is a good start.

TIP 2.  Workout to intensity.  Find your workout intensity, push through the discomfort.  If you are feeling the burn then you are doing it right. 40 mins weight resistance program, 20 mins interval cardio. 1 hour at the gym max!

TIP 3.  Add morning cardio.  After breakfast hit the  streets for a morning jog, or attack the stairs at your house.  Up quickly, down slowly, this is ideal interval cardio.

TIP 4.  Lemon your water.  There are so many benefits to putting lemon in your water.  Most important it burns more calories. Also relieves many digestion problems. Great for the skin with it’s anti-aging properties.  It can remove wrinkles and blackheads, Toothache or bad breath – Lemon water will help.  Tonsil issues, gargle lemon water frequently.  With it’s high potassium content, lemon water can help control high blood pressure.  It has been known to cure respiratory problems, breathing problems and helps someone suffering from asthma.  Lemons can treat rheumatism and arthritis as it’s a diuretic and flushes out bacteria and toxins.

I Like ‘Em Dark!

Dark Chocolate, that is!

You like sugar eh?  If you can’t stop yourself and you refuse to apply my advice about the dangers of sugar eating then try and stick to Dark Chocolate.  It’s high in health-promoting antioxidants and it’s typically difficult to eat large quantities of it in one sitting.  Eat Dark Chocolate with a glass of lemon water, this will not only fill up the stomach quicker but the lemon in the water will heighten the sweet taste and satisfy you sooner which leads to smaller portions.
