Whether you are looking to get lose weight, burn fat or just feel more energized; here are six things that I recommend.
Start your day off with hot lemon water (8 oz. hot water with the juice of ½ fresh squeezed lemon) or at least 2 cups of water before eating or drinking anything upon rising. This will help to flush the liver, as it has been at rest all night. Also, your body becomes a bit dehydrated after a long night of rejuvenating itself! Lemon water helps in detoxing as well.
Do not skip breakfast! Consume at least 25 grams of protein. It is best to eat your first meal about 30 minutes upon rising. Some quick and easy ideas: bowl or cereal and milk (some good options: Kashi GoLean Original, Bear Naked Fit Almond Crisp, and Barbara’s Bakery High Fiber), egg & cheese on wheat toast or English muffin, butter or jelly on toast, Greek yogurt with fresh fruit/berries and oatmeal (made with water) drizzle with honey and sprinkle in some cinnamon, a smoothie made with coconut water,soy or almond milk,
Eat soup! Every day eat at least one big bowl of soup. It really doesn’t matter what kind (just not the very rich with heavy cream kind if you are watching your calorie intake) as long as it is filled with lots of vegetables and low in sodium. Soup not only will fill you up, but also gives you the added benefit of extra fluids. Eat it as a complete meal or start off your lunch and dinner with a cup of soup.
Chew your food at least 20 times! Sounds kind of funny to be counting each chew every time you put something into your mouth, but by doing so you are doing two very important things.
- Your body will notice when you are full instead of after you ate too much and feel overly full.
- Your body is better able to digest the food, helping it makes it way through and out of your body.
Hydrate! Be sure to drink at least half your weight in water each day (green or white tea count). So if you weigh 150 lbs. you will need to consume at least 75 ounces of water each day… more if you are exerting yourself through exercise, yard work, house work or if it very hot outside.
