7 Simple Slimming Secrets To Lose Body Fat
By Amy Fournier
Do you work out regularly and watch what you eat but still can’t seem to get your body to look like you want it to?
Do you feel frustrated that despite putting in a considerable amount of time and effort into exercising the weight just isn’t coming off?
Well here’s a secret that you need to know: the real secret to losing inches and getting lean is not your exercise program. It’s your diet. Yes my friends, abs are made in the
kitchen not the gym.
A secret all elite exercise experts know is no matter how hard or how much you work out, you cannot exercise your way out of a bad diet. Now don’t get me wrong, exercise is super-duper important. We are all aware of the many significant physical and emotional benefits we get from being active. However exercise is not the best way to lose body fat…your diet is!
How many times have you seen someone work out to near exhaustion only to then go and eat whatever they wanted after because…well, they “earned it”? The problem is a bowl of pasta can completely undo a 30-60 minute workout …and yes, even if it’s whole-wheat!
In fact the main physical benefit of exercise is to shape, sculpt and tone the body. But if you want to lose fat and lose it fast, you need to know how to eat. In fact, approximately 80-85% of how your body looks is directly attributed to your diet.
The good news is there’s no need to turn to the latest trendy or complicated designer diet. Simply start with my 7 Simple Slimming Secrets to Lose Body Fat and watch the unwanted weight come off as your energy and confidence sore…and isn’t that what it’s really about: being healthy, loving the way you look and feel good in your own skin?
Simple Slimming Secret #1: Eliminate bad sugars
By now you should know that to be healthy, you must become a Label Reader!
Familiarize yourself with all the hidden sources of sugar and avoid all foods and drinks that contain them. You will be horrified at how prevalent sugar is in foods today…and foods that you would never expect to find it in!
For example, sugar in its various hidden forms is often in ketchup, salad dressings, sauces, cold cuts and meats. Look for the words: sucrose, glucose, corn syrup, fructose, high fructose corn syrup, cane sugar, brown rice syrup and honey. These are all forms of sugar to your body. Strictly limit your intake of them if not avoid them completely.
Sugar wreaks havoc with your energy level, causing it to spike up and then crash down which then affects your mood. The more simple sugar carb foods you eat like packaged refined foods, breads, muffins, bagels, cereals, flour products, protein and granola bars, crackers, fruit, juice etc…the more you will crave, which then leads to a roller coaster of weight gain, mood swings, energy swings, fatigue and depression!
Thank you, Amy for kickstarting this educational process of what really matters when a person decides to shed extra pounds!
