Top 10 Tips for Weight Loss

by -

1. Reducing sugar in your diet, whether in processed or unprocessed foods, helps your body burn fat.

2. 'Stoke your engine', raise your metabolism with foods that give you energy but don't put on weight.

3. Lose weight by eating 'real food' and avoid all processed foods that give you a sugar rush.

4. Did you know that you must eat plenty of food to lose weight? If you crash diet, your metabolism slows down thereby actually hindering weight loss.

5. Many people believe that eating bananas gives you energy and helps you lose weight. Bananas certainly give you energy because of the sugar they contain; however they do not necessarily help you lose weight.

6. When you lose weight and eat well you will find your cravings naturally disappear.

7. By eating well and reducing your alcohol you will have an improved night's sleep.

8. Your diet must include fatty acids, they are essential for cell regeneration, maintaining concentration levels and brain function, and hormonal balance and can help maintain a healthy heart.

9. Exercise alone is not enough to lose weight, dietary changes must be made in order to achieve your weight loss goal.

10 Drinking plenty of water helps your body work at its optimum level of efficiency and aids fat loss.

  • "I had been back and forth to my GP with various digestive complaints including bloating, acid reflux, alternating constipation and diarrhoea and abdominal pain. My GP prescribed me laxatives and tablets for the acid reflux. I decided I was far too young at 36 years old to be having these problems and went to Natural Solutions. Andrea assessed all of my symptoms, looked at my diet and lifestyle and came up with a detailed but not overwhelming plan for me.  I felt someone was finally listening to me. Andrea suggested I try a gluten free diet among other things and try this for a month to see how that affected my symptoms. Wow! What a difference it has made. I no longer have the above symptoms. I no longer take any medication. I have energy, I rarely get a headache and it's made a huge difference to my Fibromyalgia symptoms.  At first it seemed a little daunting to be making such a huge change to my diet but Andrea was there with lots of recipe ideas and helpful tips. Andrea also took me to the local health food shop and gave me plenty of suggestions and alternatives. I would recommend Natural Solutions to everyone. "Tanya Mitchell
