Tip #15: Your Metabolism and Weight Loss.

January 15, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

The very first thing I recommend to my weight loss clients is as soon their feet hit the floor, the clock starts. You must kick in your metabolism. Within an hour of waking up – have breakfast.

You wouldn’t drive your car on empty and expect to get very far.  So how can you expect your body to perform at its best unless you fuel up?

 

The right mind set, and lots of baby steps are the keys to any long-term success in life, and in weight loss.  As you’re eating better, changing your diet, and modify your family’s diet, take it a day at a time. Go easy. Take baby steps, and start your day with a healthy breakfast, kick-start your metabolism. It’s the best way to start your day.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip#14: Divide and Conquer Your Dinner Plate.

January 14, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. See better health, and get better results.

We just talked about that 9 inch blue plate.

Here is a guideline for keeping portions in a good balance:

  1.  Fill half (50%) of your plate with vegetables.
  2. A quarter (25%) with your healthy starches.
  3. A quarter (25%) with your lean portion. *

Don’t forget to use a healthy fat, and to drink your water

*Rule of thumb. If you don’t have access to a food scale compare your protein serving with the palm of your hand which should come out to about a  4 ounce serving.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #13: Train Your Brain to Lose Weight.

January 13, 2013

 30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, and see better results.

My dad always used to say, “Baby, your eyes are bigger than your stomach.”  He was right. Now I know better, and how to train my brain.

Here’s a great tip, to trick your brain: use a blue plate.

It’s true.  The color blue will help trick your brain to not want to sit and linger. You’ll eat less.

Ever wondered my so many fast food places use warm colors like: red, brown, orange, gold and tan? Comfort colors go hand in hand with quick and easy comfort foods. They want you to order more and hope your eyes are bigger than your stomach.

Your new blue plate will help you to think and feel satisfied, so you won’t go back for seconds.

 

Next, choose a 9 inch plate instead of the 10 or 12 or 16 inch plate. These giant, platter size plates just make you want to fill them up, and eat more than you need.  

So go blue.  Train your brain. Shrink your plate, and shrink your waist.

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.

Tip #12: Transform Family Recipes, and Lose Weight.

January 12, 2013

30-tips in 30-days. Get better health, and see better results.

I love traditional family recipes, but I don’t like all the extra calories. So today, I’m going to share with you a couple of easy tricks you can do to make family favorites healthier, and taste great.

3-ticks to save calories, and not skimp on taste:

  1. Use broth for sautéing instead of butter. You can use organic chicken broth, beef broth, or vegetable broth.  Pour a little in your pan instead of butter. Your family will not know the difference. 
  2. Swap out your high fat mayo, for a reduced fat mayo.
  3. My last tip is to use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Save yourself, and your family some unwanted calories, and slim down in the process.  

Transform Yourself.

Tip #10: Canned or Frozen. Which is better for your health and weight loss?

January 10, 2013

30 tips in 30 days. Get better health, see better results.

I want to talk about which is the better choice when you can’t get fresh fruits and vegetables.

Q. Canned or frozen?

A. Frozen is going to be the better choice.  There’s less preservatives. The food is  typically flash frozen right out of the field, so you’re still getting as many of the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that that plant or fruit is going to provide you. 

But fresh is always better.

Transform Yourself.

January 8, 2013

30-tips in 30-days. Get better health, and see better results.

Just because you have a crazy lifestyle, doesn’t mean you have to resort to fast food.

If you know you’re going to have a crazy day, plan ahead of time. Prepare and plan not just for you, but for your family. Shop bulk and cook on Sundays.

What we typically do on Sunday is grill a few days’ worth of chicken, and prepare all the salad fixings so they ready to go.

If you are in a pinch, instead of running into a fast food place, hit your grocery store. Pick us a rotisserie chicken, and grab a bag of lettuce. Head home with some healthy choices for your family.

 Just because we’re busy, doesn’t mean that we can’t eat good healthy foods. 

Transform Yourself.

With 30-tips in 30-days it’s easy.  Lose 2- to 5-lbs in the first two weeks, and lose 1- to 2-lbs weekly thereafter. Results may vary.
