Step One: Get off the couch, put the sneakers on, and do the workout below. Start with just one round. If you feel good, do another round. Keep going! High-intensity workouts like this help to boost the metabolism and shift the body’s fuel source from burning carbohydrates to burning fat.
Step Two: Put. The. Pizza. Down. Follow these simple tips below for cleaning up the diet. You will feel better!
- Drink plenty of water (plenty = about 100 oz per day)
- Listen to your body; stop eating when you’re full
- Eat your vegetables (fiber is your friend!)
- Avoid excess sweets and alcohol
- Consume high quality, lean protein (e.g., turkey, chicken, lean beef)
- Make sure to eat healthy fats (e.g., avocado, fish, nuts)
Step Three: Get plenty of sleep. Try for 8 hours each night. Sleep helps the body recover and regulates metabolism; plus, poor sleep is linked to higher body weight. Quality sleep not only provides energy to the brain to support concentration during waking hours but also improves the body’s immune function. Trust us, it is important; get those zzzs.
Step Four: May we suggest some supplements that, along with proper diet and exercise, can help with healthy weight management?
For a little extra workout motivation: Extreme Edge® Pre Workout is a high potency, high quality formula that ignites explosive energy and sharpens mental focus by exploiting the proven power of CarnoSyn®, the patented and most studied form of beta-alanine, to increase the concentration of carnosine in the muscles and decrease fatigue. Free-form amino acids – L-taurine and L-tyrosine – and responsible levels of caffeine from plant sources ensure explosive energy at the start of the workout without causing the athlete to crash later.
For a weight management kickstart: Skinny Garcinia® Vegetable Capsules are specially formulated with the patented South Asian fruit extract, Garcinia cambogia, known as Super CitriMax® that is standardized to 60% [750 mg] hydroxycitric acid (HCA). This combination formula also contains L-carnitine, chromium, choline, inositol, vitamin B6, methionine, plus important electrolytes. When combined with proper diet and exercise, this caffeine-free, non-stimulant formula may help support healthy weight management. ♦
