Default 7 Fast and Free Slimming Secrets

7 Fast & Free Slimming Secrets!

You’ve heard all the hype, the gimmicks, the mystical ancient tricks that are supposed to be your shortcuts to lasting weight loss success… If only it were that easy, right?
The one thing we do know is that healthy, lasting weight loss doesn’t happen overnight, but it is something you can have if you follow the right plan. However you decide to begin your weight loss journey, take a moment to read the tips below and keep them in mind along the way.

1 DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS
Did you know that 74% of adults are dehydrated?
This can slow metabolism 3–5%, and keep the
pounds on. Another reason to drink plenty of fluids is that
37% of people can confuse thirst as hunger. So drink plenty
of fluids, including Neuro™, and you’ll have healthy energy
and help your body flush out toxins, feel fuller, and help your
metabolism too.

2 EAT PROTEIN
Protein is a key way to help keep blood sugars
level, and keep you from getting hungry. But not
all protein is created equal. The Tri-Sorb™ protein in ViSalus
products were specially designed to help you retain and build
lean muscle, and burn fat. Other brands use gelatin, milk
powder, or other proteins that may be great for skin or hair or
nails, but won’t help you burn fat or boost muscle like ViSalus.

3 EAT FRUITS AND VEGETABLES
Did you know that 83% of adults don’t eat enough
fruit every day, and 72% don’t get enough
vegetables? These are critical to losing weight as they fill you
up, provide healthy antioxidants and fiber, and are low in
calories. You can ‘eat more’ and weigh less by adding fruits and
vegetables to your diet.

4 AVOID THE COLOR BEIGE
Did you know that beige foods tend to be high in
carbohydrates and calories, but low in nutrition?
Bread, rice, and pasta may taste great, but they can add up
to more calories, and more fat. One cup of refried beans can
be 500 calories! You could eat almost 10 servings of fruits and
vegetables, and still not reach 500 calories. So avoid beige,
add color to your plate and you’ll lose weight.

5 GET SOME SLEEP!
Too little sleep, and your body won’t function
and you’ll gain and retain weight. Maybe it’s a
coincidence, but 68% of us don’t get 8 hours of sleep per
night, and almost the same percent is overweight. Sleep, and
you’re body will de-stress, de-tox, and retain less cortisol to
make you gain weight.

6 PORTION SIZES COUNT
The average plate of food is 2–3 times larger in
size and calories than just 30 years ago. Did you
know that a serving size of protein is the same size as your
computer mouse? Two cups of mixed greens should be about
the size of two baseballs. A serving of fruit the size of a tennis
ball. A serving of butter or cheese the size of a dice. Little
tricks can help you keep portions under control, and help you
lose weight.

7 EXERCISE!!!
The best way to boost metabolism, boost mood,
and boost weight loss is to exercise. Simple tricks
like go for a 10 minute walk, 3 times a day can help you lose
weight, build muscle, and look better.
And Remember… It’s the inches—not the
pounds. Many people look to lose pounds, but that can
be misleading. Did you know that 1 lb. of fat is the size
of a large grapefruit? 1 lb. of lean muscle the size of a
small tangerine. By boosting exercise you’ll lose inches,
but may not lose pounds. But this is good, as muscle
burns more calories and can help keep you healthier.
So don’t focus on the scale, focus on how your clothes
fit. That’s’ the true test of weight loss.

#5 has been so difficult lately. In the past 7-10 days, I've had two days where I was up over 24 hours because I couldn't sleep. My mind just can't seem to shut off. I've always been a night owl - since birth - says my mother, but lately even if I go to bed at a reasonable time, I'm tossing and turning and looking at the alarm clock asking 'what's the use?'

I'll get up turn on the computer and before I know it, my alarm is going off and it's time to get the kids up for school.

I need to get back on #7 and pull some irons out of the fire. Learning to say 'NO' should be on the list.

How much fruit and veggies is a person suppose to consume in a day?
And Shanna - I have a problem with #5 also. I can't seem to shut my brain off either. And I think I over exhaust myself in the gym to where I can't relax! (Is that possible?)
