Sorry. I couldn’t think of another title. Processed foods, dairy, gravies, sugar, flour, gluten. They all turn to sludge into your system. Avoid these foods if you are serious about losing weight. The body only does 2 things with food. It uses food as fuel or stores food as fat. We like the former. We want to ingest foods that get burned as fuel as much as we can. Dairy is inflammatory. Inflammation causes muscle tissue to resist change. Sludge in the bloodstream is the same as sludge in your gas tank or water system at your home. It slows things down and attracts bacteria. Go raw. Go lean, go clean. Grab a package from smalls fitness.com to learn more and get lists of the foods that combat…sludge.
There are certain foods and liquids that are designed to actually help your body burn fat while you are at rest. MUFA’s (monunsaturated fatty acids and high fiber foods do just that. Your body is all yours. You are in charge so why not be the architect of the body you need? The body has triggers and switches that click on when you eat and drink certain things. Green Tea turns on this switch, grapefruit has a natural fat burning kernal as part of its makeup, avocados, nuts, and olive oil are more of the same “trigger” foods. One of the best liquids is plain old water. Hydrating the organs triggers the gall bladder, liver, pancreas and kidneys to help the body shrink that fat cell. Its these constant daily foods and liquids we ingest that assist the fat burning process. To learn more grab my food and diet plans from smallsfitness.com.
The weather is changing in most regions of the United States. Your body has to be ready to adapt to the change in temperature and precipitation. To lose weight during this shift in weather, drink more water! Increase vitamin C and leafy greens. In cold regions like where I’m from in the Northeastern United States the weather is already cold and rainy. I do cardio outside in this weather because its helps the body acclimate faster. I increase weight sessions and water intake. I pop more vitamin C and grab ginger and honey from the market. I make a ginger and honey tea with some lemon to get ahead of toll the weather will take on my immune system. I hate being sick!!! The ginger cuts down the body’s natural tendency to become inflamed. Tissue Inflammation leads to sickness.!! Have fun! more to come!
