Achieve Your Weight-Loss Goals

For most people, extreme and restrictive diets are not an effective method for weight loss in the long run, as we have a tendency to return to old behaviors.

The key to achieving your long-term goals of weight loss and weight maintenance is through implementing key changes in your life, including healthier eating habits and a regular exercise routine.

Adding a weight-loss supplement to your diet regimen can also help you to achieve your goals, contributing to a reduced appetite, improved metabolism, and better elimination of toxins.

Here are some tips to get you started.

Decrease Calorie Intake with Healthy Meal Options

The best weight-loss plans begin with a healthy, balanced diet. Experts generally agree that your diet has more to do with weight loss than the amount you exercise, suggesting that the most effective weight loss is attributed to a combination of approximately 75% diet and 25% exercise.

Opt for healthy, natural meal options whenever possible. A diet high in lean protein and fiber will give you the energy you need to fuel your physical activity, while still promoting weight loss. "One ingredient" foods like nuts, seeds, beans, fish, meats, and vegetables are great staples in a healthy, balanced diet.

Build Muscle to Accelerate Calorie Burn

In order to lose weight, the idea is to burn more calories than you consume. While dramatic weight loss is most often attributed to healthier eating and reduced calorie intake, studies show that one of the best ways to maintain your weight once you reach your goal is to be engaged in regular physical activity.

When devising an exercise routine, many people rely too much on cardio thinking this is what will help them burn more calories. However, many fitness experts have found that building muscle is more effective than cardio for burning fat. This is because the majority of the calories you burn in a day are due to your resting metabolic rate (RMR), and building more lean body mass through weight training contributes to an increased RMR – much more than cardio. One fitness expert estimated that you can expect to burn an extra 120 calories per day for every three pounds of muscle you build—and that’s calorie burn without incorporating any exercise!

Consider Weight Loss and Weight Maintenance Supplements for Assistance

While weight-loss supplements are not recommended as a solitary method for weight loss, they can aid in your overall weight-reduction plan. BodyHealth’s Optimum Weight Management Formula helps support weight loss when combined with a low-calorie diet. This special formula assists the body’s endocrine network, helping to accelerate fat burning and increase energy levels—all while preserving lean body mass.*

Once you have shed the pounds, you can try a weight-management supplement to aid in your long-term fitness plan. BodyHealth’s Healthy-Thin supplement helps to reduce appetite and curb cravings, improve metabolism, offers unique blood sugar support, decreases carb absorption, and helps rid the body of toxins released from fat burning, giving you that extra helping hand you need to maintain your body goals.*

The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora
The Link Between Depression, Antibiotics, and the Life Saving Benefits of Good Gut Flora

Physicians over thousands of years have observed a link between a patient’s mental state and how swiftly they recover. It is a long-standing axiom that people who are determined to get better and maintain a healthy frame of mind recover more quickly, with better results.

But what if we told you that it’s a two-way street? That specific health conditions can cause conditions like depression and anxiety?

In 1931, decades before the first antidepressant and antianxiety medications had been developed, a physician named Yaskin discovered that clinical depression is the earliest manifestation of pancreatic cancer. Further research demonstrated that patients who suffered from gastrointestinal malignancies carried the greatest risk of suicide – which was one of the first science-based flags indicating that the digestive system can have an impact on mental health.

The simplest way to reduce toxins in your body is to avoid them. Despite today’s crazy world that has toxins everywhere, there are steps you can take that will reduce your toxin intake. This gives your body a chance to get rid of the “backlog” and catch up.

  1. Eat ORGANIC. One of the most important ways to reduce toxicity is to eat foods that are certified organic. Not only do these foods contain higher nutrient densities to supply your body with what it needs, but they are free from the pesticides and chemicals present in most food.
  2. Avoid exercising and training in a densely populated city (when possible). As an athlete, your respiratory system is much more active – and training in a city with high levels of pollution means you are inhaling toxins just by breathing.
  3. Avoid any household products that have artificial fragrances. Artificial fragrances are toxic and should be avoided.
  4. Stay away from pesticides.
  5. Avoid highly-processed foods, as these are generally chock full of toxic chemicals.
  6. Stay away from products that contain BPA, which means avoiding plastic bottles, cardboard, and cans as much as possible.
  7. Avoid the use of non-stick cookware, as the coating contains harmful chemical compounds that can enter your food and be consumed.

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus nigra, has been used for centuries as a natural herbal remedy for those who fall ill.

Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, referred to elderberry as “nature’s medicine chest,” and it has been noted as early as the 5th century BC as a medicinal tonic – forever cementing it as a staple in human nutrition.

But, it wasn’t until recently that we understood WHY it is so helpful to the body. And with this understanding came advanced methods of harnessing the incredible power of this medicinal plant.
