Tips & Tricks For Successful Weight Loss

Here are some awesome weight loss tips I know you will enjoy.

Eat early. Late-night eating is a recipe for weight gain because the body stores more food during sleep.

Food combine as the more colorful your plate is the more vitamins and minerals your body is getting.

Abandon refined or processed foods.

Drink 8 glasses of water a day. Water is a natural appetite-suppressant. Note: Nettle tea is a great weight-loss tea as it supports metabolism and has diuretic properties

Avoid margarine, full-fat milk, cheeses and cow's milk dairy products. Some people may find these foods harder to digest, you might try grain milks instead.

Avoid sugar - it lowers the metabolism.

Cut out wheat (especially bread) because it contains a high level of gluten and many people are intolerant to gluten.

Eat the good fats and rubbish the bad. Good fats can be found in avocados, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, fish, nuts and vegetables. don't avoid these foods. They are high in good fats that fire up your metabolism so that you can lose the weight and keep it off for good. Bad fats are saturated fats, as found in red meats and butter. They are very hard to digest, clog your arteries and lead to illness and weight problems.

Don't skip meals and always eat breakfast. You stomach and spleen are at their strongest first thing in the morning. You also have the whole day to burn off the meal. If you want to raise metabolism, you have to eat at that time. If you don't, a signal goes to your brain. The brain interprets food as being scarce. Stress hormones are then released into your body. Muscle tissue is then shed in order to lessen the body's need for food. When you eat later, your body releases more insulin to make more fat as food may be scarce!

Do not go on fad diets. dieting slows down the metabolic enzyme function in the body. You fat cells bloat, become toxic and store in your tissues. You lose muscle tone. You get depressed. Instead, go on my diet of abundance. Eat more than before but the right foods.

Exercise. Burn fat fast. Exercise raises the metabolic rate so calories are used up faster. To get started, simply start walking - it is a great way to shift fat.

Get your metabolism going. First thing in the morning, drink a cup of warm water with a squeeze of lemon.

Cut out alcohol. It weakens your liver, the basic organ for fat metabolism. Beer and wine are also full of sugar, plus alcohol stimulates your appetite.

Take supplements. All overweight people are deficient in major nutrients. There are also some other helpful nutrients that can help burn fat, increase metabolism and so on. Below is a basic list of important nutrients and supplements. I am not suggesting that you take all the supplements I mention at once.
