10 Commandments for Weight Gone For Good #2

Remember Commandments 1-5? Time to add to that list…

6. Get your zzzz

If you want to lose weight, you need to get at least seven hours of shut-eye every night. Full stop. When you are lacking sleep, your body produces a nasty hormone called ghrelin, which TRIGGERS HUNGER and causes FAT RETENTION. Double yuck! When you’re tired, you also lack energy and often end up making poor food choices. 

 

 

7. Avoid Artificial Sweeteners

They may be calorie-free, but did you know that artificial sweeteners actually do bugger-nothing for weight loss? Reason being that they’re  so intensely sweet that they seem to make you CRAVE SWEET THINGS more!

8.Eat More Often

“Don’t eat between meals!”; ya, right, maybe in 1980. Rather, don’t go more than 5 hours without eating. that sounds more like it! Eating smaller meals more often prevents over-indulgence, and keeps your blood sugar steady, lowering cravings.

Try Herbalife High Protein Snack Bars for a healthy, chocolatey, 10g of protein in only 134 calories. Snacking sorted!

9. Keep on Movin’

I’m not even going to start listing the benefits of exercise, we will be here all week. Just do it, whatever it is and for however long. Just MOVE! Every muscle fibre in your being will thank you. Not to mention that your weight loss with be QUICKER and safer; and it will be easier for you to keep it off for good.

10.  Keep it Chilled

Last but not least, is reducing stress. Not only will this benefit your weight loss, but it will improve all aspects of your life. Stress causes the release of cortisol; and cortisol = body fat = no thank you. So spend time in beautiful surroundings, switch off that cellphone, BREATHE, and slow down… your body and brain will thank you for it.
