Want to warm up and lose weight now we’re in winter? Using herbs such as cayenne, garlic, ginger, rosemary, and turmeric when cooking, not only warms up the body in these cooler months, but also quickens the metabolism, burning fat faster whilst decreasing any inflammation in the body.
Doing a detox once a year is a great way to keep your weight down. This is mostly due to the removal of toxins & fats from the liver, which can build up & clog it. The liver is the main organ that breaks down fats. I would suggest doing a detox at the very end of winter. Contact me if you would like suggestions of safe, effective detox’s.
The super food Chia seeds have been very recently discovered by local University of Southern Queensland’s Professor Lindsay Brown, to be one of the very few factors that can move that stubborn fat from the abdomen to elsewhere in the body, where it can actually be lost through diet and exercise.
Don’t fall into the ‘fad diet’ trap. Remember the tortoise and the hare? The tortoise won. This is the same with anything in life we want to achieve whether it’s learning to read or driving a car- they all take time and consistent effort. It’s no different with your weight. Often these fad diets claim- ‘lose 5kg’s in 5 days’, but long-term health and weight loss is something you work on everyday, not try to get over night- unfortunately.
So be proud of the small achievements, like losing 400g’s a week- because this will add up over time and you’re more likely to keep it off.
