Quick List of Just a Few Fat Loss Tips…

Fat loss will be the subject of many a blog on my site, but here are a few tips to think about when it comes to successful fat loss…

1.  Start your day with a high protein, moderate fat, low carb (or even no carb) breakfast and eat that breakfast within one hour of rising.

2.  Seriously, you know this one, drink plenty of water!  General recommendations are 1/2 your body weight in ounces.

3.  Keep your carbs fairly limited with the majority being at dinner.  *Unless you are an athlete, generally 150g carb or less depending on you and your goals.

4.  Keep your liver detoxed on a daily basis.  *See my recommendations for detox supplements.  This means avoiding toxic foods and toxic personal products and cleaning products.  Check out my guides on buying less toxic personal products and cleaning supplies.

5.  Sip green tea throughout the day (helps get in your water needs too!).  Even if you can handle caffeine, be sure to stop all caffeine by 2 pm.  If you can’t or shouldn’t handle caffeine, simply get the decaf green tea (can still contain traces of caffeine).  I love Yogi Teas and they make several varieties of green tea.  I like the Kombucha green tea.

6.  Regularly (daily, if possible) consume anti-inflammatory herbs and spices like ginger, cinnamon, cilantro, parsely, and turmeric.

7.  Consume omega-3 fatty acids from fish about 4 times per week – look to get in one pound of fish like sardines and wild-caught salmon.
