Are You A Good Fat Burner? It May Be Your Digestion!

ID-100117017

Seems as you get older it just get harder and harder to lose weight.

And to drive a girl even more nuts, gaining weight seems to get easier and easier. What?

I’ve worked with a lot of women in the 40’s and beyond that want to lose weight.

It ain’t easy, at times it seems downright impossible.

The key to being a good fat burner is having a good digestion.

A body bogged down with toxins, sugar and processed food is not going to burn fat.

No amount of exercise is going to do the trick!

I have heard more personal trainers say their clients just don’t get it….you can’t expect to lose weight just because you spend time working out if you don’t eat healthy food and have great digestion.

I don’t promote a sedentary life either but you just have to have good digestion if you are going to lose that weight and keep it off.

So want to know how to start being a good fat burner?

Start with these four areas.

1.Get hydrated – drink more water – not tea, not coffee but water – preferably room temp, add some lemon,1/2 your body weight in ounces. You are made up of mostly water.  Without proper hydration you will stop burning fat.

2. Detox your body – your liver is a key organ for creating good digestion. Eat foods that take toxins out of your body. Some great foods for this are: Chia seeds, organic berries, broccoli, brussel sprouts, leafy greens, beets, just to name a few. Eat organic – it does matter!

3. Boost your immune system – the vast amount of your immune system is located around your gut…unhealthy gut, unhealthy you.  And when we don’t feel well we gain weight.  Boost your immune system with fruits and vegetables, getting proper rest, reduce stress and spend time doing things you enjoy!

4. Give your body time to burn fat.  The more frequently you eat the less body fat you will burn.  You will burn the fat you have eaten but not body fat.  Also if you are eating the wrong combination of foods you will actually be storing some of those calories as fat in your body. Intermittent fasting is a great option.

We all know the health benefits of being a healthy weight.  We are not talking model thin but a healthy weight.  You have a lower risk for diabetes, heart disease and cancer. We all want to live as long as we can and be able to do the things we love until the end. Getting yourself to a healthy weight through creating great digestion is the key!

You Deserve to be Healthy!

We All Need a Little Help from Our Friends

Whether your a party animal or someone that would rather enjoy quiet alone time there is no disputing the power of friendship.

A Web MD article states ……. “According to an Australian study. Conducted by the Centre for Aging Studies at Flinders University, the study followed nearly 1,500 older people for 10 years. It found that those who had a large network of friends outlived those with the fewest friends by 22%.”

Wow and while having good relationships with relatives is a positive experience it does not seem to increase one’s longevity like friends.

Friends help you fight stress, depression, loneliness and even bad habits.

Having people around that love, support and believe in you is life changing.

People that hang out with friend tend to be more active; playing sports, taking walks, going out dancing or even shopping as opposed to those that spend a large portion of their time alone – usually sitting.

The ladies in the picture above attended a Healthy Cooking Party that I created for the group.  The women had a great time, cooking, learning about how to improve their health, enjoying each other’s company and drinking wine!  I went home that night with my mood and creativity boosted!

Good friends encourage each other to be healthy, lose weight and exercise.

No matter how many you have, good friends will help lessen the emotional burden of a life-threatening disease.

While having friends has huge advantages be careful who you choose as a friend.  Unhappy or needy friends can actually have the opposite affect – increasing stress, creating an unhealthy lifestyle and taking a toll of our mental well-being.

So go out and spend some time with friends doing things you love to do…it’s one of the many things your can do to improve your health and happiness!

Cheers!

What do you and your friends like to do together?
