How to Eat Your Way to Slim in 2015

howtoeatBy Christine M Esters

This is the time of year where New Year’s resolutions are on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Of course, it is no secret that the number one New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. Whether it is to drop 10 pounds, 20 pounds or 30 pounds, everyone seems to be upgrading their gym memberships, and ridding their kitchen of all their junk food. But, the truth is, no matter how much dieting and exercise you do, you still have to eat and stay healthy. So, how do you stick to your New Year’s goals when your stomach is rumbling? Let me share a few tips with you that will leave your stomach full and your waist slim.

    1. Detox – First things first, if you want to slim your middle, you need to cleanse and detox. Throughout 2014, and especially during the holidays, you probably accumulated a lot of toxins, heavy metals, and chemicals in your body that caused it to go out of whack. If you were feeling sluggish, tired, irritable or just not yourself, most likely your body was filled with toxins. So you want to cleanse your body and get rid of all those little culprits that cause you to have poor health and extra fat that you don’t need.

 

    1. Eat Healthier – I know this rule is simple. However, it can be hard to follow. If you are a busy gal on the go, it’s very easy to grab that bag of potato chips and soda instead of reaching for celery and hummus. If you didn’t raid your kitchen and rid it of all the junk food, now is the time to do so. You can replace your junk food with organic fruits, vegetables, and lean meats.

 

    1. Skip Deprivation – I know it may seem counterintuitive to tell you to eat a big chunk of chocolate cake, especially since it has a load of calories in sugar. But, the truth is, you can still enjoy all your favorite foods and treats without worry. The key word here is moderation. If you want a piece of chocolate cake, by all means have a bite or two without worry or guilt. However, you should worry if you eat the whole cake by yourself. Here’s a quick tip. If you really want the chocolate cake or any other sweet treat, invite a couple of your friends over and split the cake amongst you all.

 

    1. Chew your food slowly – It’s no secret that many people are fast eaters. And for good reason, food is so tasty! However, eating fast can wreak havoc on your digestive system as well as cause you to over eat. On average, it should take you at least 30 – 35 seconds to chew one bite of food. Your stomach needs time to send messages to your brain to let it know that you are full. However, when you chew your food quickly, you don’t have time to let your stomach digestive the food properly. Not to mention, you won’t enjoy every morsel that enters your mouth. If you take an extra 5 – 10 minutes at the dinner table to chew your food, you will feel fuller and eat less. This can ensure you stay slim and healthy in the New Year. Try using chopsticks.

 

  1. Eat Often – I know there are a lot of critics out there saying you should only eat once or twice a day if you are trying to lose weight. But, the truth is, if you are trying to lose weight, you need energy and food is energy. Think about a car, if a car doesn’t have fuel, it simply won’t go. If it’s low on gas, it won’t function properly. Your body acts the same way when you don’t give it the food and energy it needs to perform at optimal health. Now, when I say eat often, I don’t mean have a big feast every time you sit down to eat. You can eat about every 2 – 3 hours to boost your metabolism and give you energy. Throughout the day, you can feast on nutritious snacks like cashew nuts, greek yogurt, and fresh vegetables and fruit. Then have a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner.

If you take the pressure off of losing weight, and focus on being healthy and happy, your waist will slim down in no time. However, follow these fun and simple health tips to stay healthy and slim in 2015 and beyond.

If you are ready to get rid of toxins, lose stubborn pounds, restore your energy and supercharge your life- It’s time for a cleanse. Give Christine 10 days and she will give you a lifetime of feeling lighter and sexier. To schedule a Free Consultation visit http://www.adventureinwellbeing.com
