Perfect Weight Loss Daily Activities
Use your time more wisely throughout the day to boost your metabolism, burn more calories, and torch that stubborn belly fat using the following simple easy to use activities during your day:
7 am- Wake up and do 2-3 minutes of jumping jacks, high knee raises, pushups, squats, lunges, or running in place.
7:15- Have a high protein diet with a good source of fiber. Studies have shown that a meal consisting of high quality protein and/or fiber helps people feel fuller longer throughout the day. Try eating scrambled eggs along with some oatmeal such as steel cut oats (quaker oats).
9 am- Drink some milk. A diet with plenty of calcium-rich dairy can enhance weight loss, according to a study of overweight people. Raw milk is the best source of calcium. Don’t be fooled by the negative wrap given to raw milk. It’s actually considered nature’s most perfect food. Pasteurization of milk actually destroys beneficial bacteria along with the bad ones and destroys enzymes essential for nutrient absorption. Pasteurizing milk destroys all its phosphatase which is essential for the absorption of calcium.
10 am- Eat a protein-rich snack such as a turkey sandwich on ezekial bread with some Swiss cheese. Studies have shown that eating three 200-250 calorie snacks during the day helps burn fat and sustains energy throughout the day.
11 am- Take some time to walk briskly around the office for a while. Take a break from your desk to get your heart rate up a bit.
1 pm- For lunch have a salad and 6 oz portion of fish or chicken. You can even throw in a handful of nuts such as almonds for good fats. Adding some magnesium from these sources will help with your metabolism.
2 pm- Take another brisk walk
3 pm- Drink a good source of green tea. Studies have shown that green teas are rich in catechins which help reduce body fat.
5 pm- Have another snack. Try adding some spice to it such as cayenne. Foods containing spice from sources such as chili peppers contain capsaisin. Many studies have shown that capsaicin inhibits fat cellular development and can actually suppress the appetite. This has resulted in the birth of numerous red-pepper-containing diet pill formulations that claim to effectively assist dieters in their weight loss efforts, side effect-free.
6 pm- Hit the weights. Perform slow concentrated movements. This has been shown to trigger growth hormone production which helps to burn fat along with other added benefits.
6:15- Drink a post-workout shake containing quality protein and simple carbohydrates. The simple carbohydrates will stimulate insulin levels allowing for the shuttling of nutrients into the muscles which have just been worked out. This is called glycogen refueling.
7:30 Eat dinner. Eat a healthy meal such as chicken, lean beef, or fish along with some greens.
9:30 Relax. Read a book or whatever helps you block out the stress. Stress increases your cortisol levels. Cortisol is a steroid hormone which produces abdominal fat.
10:30- Get your zzz’s… Studies have shown that losing sleep affects the hormones that control your appetite. Disrupting this hormone will leave you feeling less satisfied after a meal and cause you to be hungrier overall.
By making these small changes and using your time more wisely, you’ll begin to see a noticeable difference.
