My Top 5 Tricks to Lose Fat!

Uncategorized Jun 08, 2020

Anyone else gain a few pounds during quarantine. Oops!! Well have no fear because that is just life guys! There are different seasons in life and we just get to enjoy the ride. I sure enjoyed eating ALL. THE. FOOD. during quarantine and then realized I didn't feel as good as I was feeling pre-quarantine. SO, I decided to get back on track and get back to eating healthy. I miss it!! So for anyone else who is looking to lose a few pounds this month, here are my TOP 5 TRICKS TO LOSING FAT!

#1 - This is an important one guys. HIGH VOLUME FOOD! This is where it's at when you're dieting. Whether you eat a big ass salad, a big green smoothie, a big bowl of vegetable/chicken (low calorie) soup, or lots of veggies.... if you include this in your diet, it will help you SO much. Remember that when it comes to fat loss, calories are KING. But, you can make it a lot easier on yourself by making sure those calories come from high volume food so you aren't starving all day long!

#2 - Drink. A LOT. They say to drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day. I definitely struggle with that but I do make sure to have my water bottle with me throughout the day so I'm consistently drinking. I also have a cup of coffee every morning and then a decaf coffee in the afternoon #coffeeislife. It's hot and yummy and takes me a long time to drink so it helps me to not get snacky. Then, at night, I love to have a glass of ginger tea with honey. It's sooo good and soothing at the end of the day.

#3 - This is a big one for me! You really don't need to do this to lose weight. Especially if you have good self control. I, unfortunately, do not have good self control with crackers and cereal and breads and all of the yummy processed foods that really aren't good for you anyway, SO, I just don't have it. I try not to have it in general because really, it is SO addicting but I FOR SURE don't have it when I'm dieting, ha! My weakness... just so you guys know... goldfish crackers. OMG they are amazing!

#4 - Up your protein! Focus on getting around 20-30 grams of protein at each meal! Protein helps to keep you feeling fuller and satiated longer. Plus, it helps you to not lose as much muscle when losing fat. I like to sneak in an Ideal Fit protein drink each day as well. Their clear protein drinks are SO good! I'm not a fan of protein powder, but these I like! SUPER fruity and good! Use my code for 20% off a $40 purchase (AMBER-R1N5).

#5 - Keep a healthy mindset and don't stress so much. It's a process. When you lose weight in a healthy way, it takes time! You can't stress about the scale. Just change the way you eat and focus on being HEALTHY instead of losing weight. It's all in how you think about it. If you are constantly thinking about all of the food you CAN'T have, you're going to want that food MORE! That's no bueno! Instead, focus your thoughts on how you can be more healthy. What foods can you have that will help your body feel good?

And, just remember, losing weight in a healthy way takes time!! Plan on losing 1-2 lbs. each week and you will be great!
