Quick Tip for Losing the Weight

By 

I would like to let you in on a little secret to my success with losing weight so quickly. First of all you need to make a decision. The decision is that you are going to do this. You are going to follow the workout plan and you are going to change the food you place into your mouth. You are going to push play on your DVD player no matter what time of the day it is and what you have left to do for the day. In order to get this burning desire you need to discover why you want to do this.
This can be different for many people. For me it was my self-esteem, my son and my job. For you it maybe that beach vacation you are taking, a wedding, training for the military or a marathon or because your health is deteriorating. Next you need to decide what your fitness goal is going to be. Are you going to lose 5 lbs., 15 lbs, or 50 lbs. or more? How many inches would you like to lose on your waist? What size do you want to fit into? How fast do you want your mile run to be?
Next, WRITE IT DOWN! Write your goals down on a piece of paper and place it next to your bed. Read it before you go to sleep and when you get up in the morning. This will remind you of your goals and it has been proven to increase motivation. Then pick your workout program based on your physical ability. Beachbody has several different workout programs to choose from. Want fun music and cardio? Try Turbofire. Want a total body transformation? Try P90X. Do you have arthritis or a bad knee? Try Power 90. Whatever the choice just remember to read the manuals and follow the nutrition plans. Also ask your coach they are very knowledgeable on a plan that will work for you.
It has also been proven that if you join a workout group for support and motivation you will be a ton more likely to finish the program and reach your goals than someone going it along. This is why challenge groups are so effective and why my team, Team Hustle, was created. It is to assist others in eating healthy and achieving their weight loss goals.
So get started with your goals tonight. Write them down and add to them as you go about your day. Just make sure they are big enough to motivate you to take action!

10 Helpful Tips for Weight Loss

By 

Overweight people often view weight loss as a dreaded but necessary process to undergo in their pursuit of improved health and body image. Lets re-frame weight loss and look at it as an opportunity to explore new foods and recipes, a fun way to get more movement in your life and a chance to stretch your vision of who you are and more importantly, who you are becoming. The following tips will hopefully tickle your fancy and help turn your weight loss journey into an overture to an ever-improving “you”.
1) Transformation begins in the mind. Think “lifestyle” – not “diet”, think “feel better in my body” – not “weight loss” and lastly think “I love myself enough to make whatever changes are necessary” – not “I hate my body so much I need to change”.
2) Slow down to slim down. Practice mindful eating by engaging all your senses in the dining process. As you see, smell and anticipate your meal, pre-digestion begins. While chewing, focus on the texture, not just the taste and listen to the sound of your teeth shredding and grinding your food. Savor each bite and chew slowly and thoroughly (minimum 25-40 chews) before swallowing. Not only will this give your body time to realize it is getting full but it will also improve the absorption of nutrients.
3) Use the 80% Rule. The Japanese call it “Hara hachi bu” which means “Eat until 80% full”. Not only will you lose weight but the caloric restriction will promote longevity.
4) Boost your metabolism with cold water and hot spices. Drinking ice cold water causes the body to warm the water which temporarily raises the metabolism. Taking a cold shower increases circulation and metabolism by bringing more blood to the capillaries. And while we’re talking about “cold”, shivering will raise your body temperature and hence, your metabolism. As for the “hot stuff”, cayenne, ginger, cinnamon and turmeric have a thermogenic effect on the metabolism and help regulate blood sugar as well.
5) Turn your kitchen black and blue. Our earliest ancestors, while foraging for food, used black, blue and purple as warning signs of potentially lethal food. Because the color blue rarely appears in our food supply naturally, it has been shown to act as a drug-free appetite suppressant. Try changing the refrigerator bulb to blue or eating off blue plates. Perhaps you would prefer a black or blue tablecloth.
6) Eat more negative calorie food. Food that takes more energy to digest than the calories it provides includes: cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts), asparagus, leafy greens, celery, mushrooms, chili peppers, apples, berries, apricots, peaches, and pears.
7) Sleep your weight away. While you sleep your fat cells secrete a hormone called leptin, which suppresses the appetite and triggers the metabolism to burn more calories. For healthy weight and longevity women usually need at least 7 hours whereas men need about 8 hours of sleep.
8) Reduce stress. Our bodies respond to stress by producing a hormone called cortisol which encourages fat storage especially in the abdominal region. The following suggestions may help to reduce stress and enhance feelings of well-being:
  • Laughter is truly the best medicine. It strengthens the immune system, relieves tension and releases dopamine, a pleasure-producing hormone.
  • Spend time outdoors in harmony with nature.
  • Exercise daily. Moving your body should not be a dreaded task so choose activities that you enjoy.
  • Sing and dance to your favorite music.
  • Express your feelings with respect for yourself and others.
  • Practice mindfulness, living in the present moment.
  • Try a Yoga, Tai Chi or Meditation class.
  • Reduce caffeine and sugar consumption.
  • Recite positive affirmations.
  • Record your innermost thoughts in a journal.
  • Treasure moments with loved ones.
9) Eat more fiber especially at breakfast. It will help you stay full longer. Try eating only whole grains, a few servings per day. Include legumes, nuts and seeds in your diet but keep the portions small. Don’t limit vegetables to mealtimes. Raw veggies can make a delicious snack. And lastly, eat the whole fruit rather than the juice.
10) Be gentle with yourself. Berating yourself only brings negative emotions and outcomes. Embrace the joy that an occasional indulgence brings and celebrate your accomplishments.
