Healthy Weight Management CLEANSE

When you’re looking to improve your health or lose weight, the only honest long term solution is making a lifestyle change. The key to sustainable healthy living is to remember that it’s what you do most of the time that truly counts. Sustainable healthy living should never feel like deprivation; it should however, boost your energy, support healthy weight management and improve mood. This can be easily achieved with a combination of healthy eating habits, exercise and nutrient support, such as Garcinia Plus®. Here are some tips to send you on the right path for your new healthy lifestyle:

Eating Clean

Eating for Health

Eat Clean:

Michael Pollen said it best, “eat food, not too much, mostly plants.” The intention should be to eat a clean whole foods-based diet. Simply by eating foods as they are naturally from the earth greatly improves the quality of nutrition you can get from each meal. If the food you’re eating bears little resemblance to its original natural state, you’re likely missing out on important micro-nutrients and phytonutrients you could’ve otherwise been eating.

Control Portions:

Eating the right portions of foods is essential for weight management. A good general rule of thumb is that half your plate should be vegetables at every single meal. Make it half a plate of salad, or half a plate of broccoli for example. Your portion of protein is also important to consider. That steak that’s that size of half of your plate at the restaurant, it should actually realistically be about the size of your fist.

Stabilize Blood Sugar

When blood sugar goes through spikes and drops, it can affect your energy levels. Eating fats and proteins can help to keep blood sugar in balance by reducing the speed at which foods breaks down as glucose in the blood. Eating a diet high in sugars and refined carbohydrates can contribute to insulin resistance, meaning the sugar you eat can’t effectively enter the cell to be used for energy. The body then produces higher amount of insulin to work harder to remove the sugar from the bloodstream. Insulin resistance can contribute to feelings of brain fog and fatigue, as well as cravings for sweets1.

Jogging outside

Move Your Body

Exercise is important for weight management, heart health, muscle building and metabolism2. The gym is a great place to go when it’s raining, or to learn new exercises based on your goals if you’re working with a personal trainer, but for some, the gym can be intimidating. Keep in mind, exercise doesn’t have to only be about going to the gym, there are numerous ways you can get out and move your body, the most important part is that you enjoy what you’re doing. Try a yoga class, go for a bike ride, jog outside, go hiking, or take dance classes, or try a few different things to keep things fresh.
