Tip #28: Inflammation and Weight Loss.

January 28, 2013

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

Inflammation of the body is caused as a result of some kind of stress experienced by the body. This stress can be related to diet, lifestyle, or environment.  Dr. A Habits of Health (a book I recommend to everyone who wants to lose weight) devoted a full chapter of this subject.

Study show that Vitamin C, a powerful vitamin, can help put out the fire of inflammation. It can also help with some cancers, and heart disease.

I also recommend fresh air and sun light. You only need about 10- to 20-minutes a day. If you have fair skin, put on some sunscreen and a hat.  Spending a few minutes in the sun light will promote Vitamin D, which also helps promote good health.

Be sure to drink plenty of water, and get your Vitamin C.

Tip #26: Improve Yours Abs While Driving.

January 26, 2013

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

I heard about this and I thought it was so funny. I had to give this a try.

When you’re driving in your car, you can tighten your abs, by changing the angle of your rearview mirror – higher. You have to sit up straighter to see out. It’s supposed to improve your abs.

I adjusted my mirror and took off down the road.  At some point, I went to check the cars behind me and ended up looking at the roof of my inside of my car. It took me a second for this to register and by then I was laughing and realized – it worked.

It made me sit up a little straighter, tighten my stomach muscles, and add a little bit extra ump to my core strengthening.

Give it a try and drive safely.

Tip #22: Save Money and Calories.

January 22, 2013

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

It’s a lot healthier to eat at home, when you prepare the meals. You’ll save money and calories.

When you order in a restaurant you may be getting more calories than you asked for. Cooks were taught that butter is flavor. You’ll need to make sure they don’t put a butter or oil finish on your food.

For most of us, too much butter is something we carry on our hips and tummy’s. 

Be careful when you order out.

Tip #20: Heart Health – Going Meatless Once a Week.

January 20, 2013

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

Have you thought about having a meatless meal, and maybe going a little vegetarian once a week with your family?  

I know if you’re listening to this in cattle country, or you’re a big poultry or fish eater, you’re going think, no, no, I need my protein.

Studies have shown that people who do a meatless meal have better cardiovascular health.

 

So you might want to think of sautéing some veggies in broth, and maybe adding something like tofu. That’s probably a stretch for a lot of you.  So consider a salad, and steamed vegetables.  

Try going meatless  once a week instead of that turkey club, or steak. Your system will be happier. You’ll maybe shed a few more pounds, and feel lighter on your feet the next day.

Tip #19: The 2-Tlb. Spoon Rule and 3-Tips for Weight Loss.

January 19, 2013

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

I want talk about how we can trick our brains with better choices and feel completely satisfied.

  • Do you have to have beer and hot dog at a baseball game?
  • Do you order a large popcorn when you go to the movies, and keep it most of it to yourself?
  • Drink beer at a barbeque and eat heaps of potato salad?
  • How about a giant piece of cake at a wedding, baby shower, or a birthday party?

You can still go out, have fun, and gather with your friends, but you may need to rethink your choices if your goal is to lose weight and be healthier.

Try these 3-tips:

  1. Take a 100 calorie bag of popcorn to the movies.
  2. Get some light beer and take it with you to the BBQ.
  3. Instead of having a giant mondo size piece of cake how about just a bit or two?

Try my 2 tablespoon rule.

Take a bite, if you absolutely have to indulge in it.  Now chew… 5 or 6 chews, for at least 10 or so seconds, before you let it go down.

Have a sip of water.

Still want more. Okay – have another bite. Chew. 5 or 6 chews for at least 10 seconds.

Have a sip of water

Your taste buds by now are happy. Mentally you don’t feel deprived. More than likely you weren’t starving so you can stop. And the best part is you limited the calories to 2-Tablespoons.

If your goal is to be healthy and lose weight ask yourself:  What would a healthy person do?  Watch them and I bet you’ll see that they take 2 or 3 bites, and they’re done, and so can you.

Push away from whatever it is that’s calling your name, you’ll save calories, and you’ll really feel like you had a huge success and control over those guilty pleasures.

Transform Yourself.

Tip #18: Weekend Rewards to Lose Weight.

January 18, 2013

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

So many times, we fall into the trap that we’re good all week long, and now we want to reward ourselves with something. And boom – we splurge on the weekend. Whether it’s an adult beverage, or something chocolaty and indulgent… we take the plunge.

The problem with being good all week and then bad on the weekends is as-soon-as Monday hits, you feel guilty that you messed up all those great days. So what happens is is you’re in a vicious cycle.

Get out of your own bad habits of rewarding yourself Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday, with food. Because what you’re doing is you’re setting yourself up for long-term failure.

This weekend instead of indulging in food, do an activity. Grab your kids, grab your significant other, put the dog on a leash, and go for a walk.  Take the family for a fun day. What you really want is long-term success. Don’t let those few hours on the weekend mess up all your good work.

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.
