“Slim down for summertime” is your motivational mantra for this month. Imagine the picnics, barbecues, fireworks – and you in your dream body.
Women intuitively know that one-size-doesn’t-fit-all, and that includes diets, fitness goals, and yes even those old jeans.
Some may want to trim a few pounds to flatten a bit of belly bulge. Others may be looking to drop 20 to 50 pounds or more for a totally new body.
In fact, there’s a slim-down strategy for every potential beach body, and, in a few short weeks, you can be well on your way to a slimmer summer and your favorite short-shorts, too.
How to Slim Down Fast (and Safely)
Put your metabolism in hyperdrive, and you can slim down starting right now!
Adding these helpful habits to your diet will quickly put you on the path to immediate and long-term weight control.
1. Squeeze some zing in your life. Lemon and vinegar are much more than just folk remedies.
Apple cider vinegar may improve the way the body metabolizes blood sugar after eating, and may help to improve glycemic control. Some researchers claim that the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar has reducing effects on obesity.
The polyphenols found in lemons suppress the accumulation of body fat and may even improve insulin and leptin resistance. Leptin resistance drives the desire to eat more and more, promoting fat gain.
The Almased Weight Loss Phenomenon™ also supports healthy leptin levels so you can feel full and satisfied longer. Almased shakes are low-glycemic high-protein (LGHP) and can be used as a complete meal replacement or a nutritional supplement.
2. Eat plenty of protein. Essential amino acids link up to create protein and are vital for many body functions. Especially when dieting, protein is needed to keep your muscles intact while the body burns off extra body fat.
Protein also increases metabolism by 15–30 percent, which satisfies our appetites and makes us less likely to overeat.
Choose lean meats, poultry, seafood, eggs, and low-fat dairy. Plant-based proteins (beans, peas, soy, lentils, nuts, seeds) add the benefits of fiber.
Fortunately, the Almased meal-replacement formula contains all nine essential amino acids and is packed with 27 grams of high-quality non-GMO protein.
The high-biological-quality protein in Almased is just one more reason that dieters can more easily stick with their weight loss plans.
3. Refined carbs and processed foods are not diet-friendly. They affect the hormone insulin, which is the master metabolic switch responsible for balancing blood sugar levels and storing fat in your body.
Carbs aren’t always the enemy, but they do get a bad rap due to refining and processing - which can increase hunger and throw blood sugar levels out of whack.
Refined carbs such as sugar, soda, white rice, white flour, pastries, and processed grains are low in fiber and nutrients, and best when they are least — limited to rare occasions.
4. Fill up with fiber. Fiber is found in all plant life and is linked with many health benefits, including weight management. Because bowel-moving fiber cannot be digested, it "sweeps clean" the digestive system and keeps you feeling so full that you'll actually have a hard time trying to overeat.
Focus on whole grains, beans, peas, lentils, whole fruits and vegetables (with their skin and not just the juice), and nuts and seeds.
Reading food labels and choose those with at least 2 grams of fiber per serving. Here is a cleverly arranged assortment of plant-based fiber-full recipes.
Because fiber is crucial for healthy weight-loss, Almased recipes include a spoon or two of chia seeds, flaxseeds, or hemp seeds to give you extra power hours of fullness.
Be sure to drink plenty of water every day and even more when increasing your fiber intake.
There’s a lot you can do to take off excess fat and feel much better while doing so. Even minor changes can bring major effects on fat burning and avoid the ups and downs of weight regain.
The Almased Weight Management Program
Almased uses LGHP diet shakes and smoothies for weight loss, weight management, and healthy nutrition to help people achieve naturally high feelings of exceptional wellness.
The Almased formula was developed in Germany over 30 years ago by holistic scientist Hubertus Trouillé. His goal was to improve metabolism in his patients, and he did, along with the added benefit of weight loss.
Feel good about choosing weight loss with Almased because it's made from pure non-GMO soy protein, cultured yogurt, and rich, raw honey. The select fermentation method used increases the bioactive peptides (such as lunasin), so even one daily serving supports overall health and wellness.
In addition, there have been many international studies showing positive weight loss results with Almased. Data suggest that, even over a short time, Almased’s meal-replacement diet is more effective in supporting healthy levels of different metabolic markers, such as insulin and leptin, and in improving bodily measurements better than a fat-restricted low-calorie diet.
