Losing excess weight after the holidays is challenging, especially for people over 40. Nearly everyone faces their body thickening and a slow rise in weight in their 40's. Yes, even people who have always been slim, who eat a healthy diet, and who exercise regularly. Unfortunately, this problem is magnified during the holidays when we tend to overeat high fat and sugar laden meals. But I promise you -- you can lose that excess holiday weight at any age with thermogenic herbs and spices.
Thermogenesis is all about fat burning. Everyone's metabolism increases after eating, but the amounts of heat (thermogenesis) varies, especially for women. Starting in our early 40s, a genetic timer begins to slow down the thermogenic mechanism. Instead of calories being burned off, more of them get stored as white fat, leading to weight gain, especially around the middle.
You can reactivate thermogenesis, and using thermogenic herbs and spices is key. Garcinia cambogia, green tea, mustard seed, turmeric, fennel, cinnamon and ginger are all examples of thermogenic herbs that you can use to stimulate weight loss without health risks.
Please stay tuned for further healthy information about how to drop those added holiday pounds. You will feel better, and look better -- which is always an added bonus! Start the new year off right. You are worth it!
As we all know, the holiday season is here! It can be a time of joy, but for many of us, stress levels are skyrocketing. The increased financial, family and work demands of the season can leave your body exhausted and overwhelmed.
Good nutrition is one answer to de-stress. Give this anti-stress diet a try! Its a mood elevator and rebuilds your nervous system health with calming minerals and grounding B vitamins.
1. As stress increases, protein needs increase. Proteins from seafood, tempeh, eggs and sprouts offer notable results. Have a fresh carrot juice once a week.
2. Include magnesium-rich foods from green vegetables and whole grains to calm nerves. Add more potassium-rich foods like potatoes, bananas, seafood and avocados to your diet. Potassium helps reduce stress-related high blood pressure, and regulates blood sugar.
3. Eat B vitamin-rich foods like brown rice. Avoid trans fats from fried foods, red meats and highly processed foods, for better adrenal health.
4. Drink green tea each morning instead of coffee for energy and antioxidants.
5. Feed your adrenals with green superfoods and sea veggies.
Try to enjoy the holidays. Remember to unwind, delegate at least some responsibility, and take time for rest and relaxation each day. The holiday season is a time of both giving and receiving. Allow yourself the gift of health!
Wishing all of you a happy, healthy and love-filled holiday!
