Activate Fat Burning Hormones

Losing weight is a billion-dollar industry and is on the top of everyone’s list of goals. With quick weight-loss clinics, pills, injections, fad diets, liposuction and gastric bypass surgery, its no wonder why many people are confused and likely fail. Most people don’t “diet” correctly. To diet means to lose weight, gain the weight back again and repeat. This roller coaster effect causes the loss of muscle mass. When you lose muscle mass, your metabolism slows down and so does your fat burning capacity.

The key to losing weight is to turn your body into a fat-burner instead of a fat-storer. The following is a list of ways to trigger your fat burning hormones and help achieve success in losing weight:

  • Eliminate emotional baggage
  • Stop or reduce alcohol intake
  • Do not skip meals
  • Stop eating bread, cake, cookies, and junk food
  • Get help for recurring or chronic pain
  • Stop overeating
  • Reduce or eliminate caffeinated drinks
  • Manage stress
  • Fix poor sleeping habits
  • Do not drink tap water
  • Eat organic when possible and do not eat chemical toxic foods

Losing weight requires a lifestyle change. It is helpful to have a step-by-step process to insure great results, as well as an exit strategy to get you to your goal and keep you there. 80% of the battle is proper nutrition. Finding a program that builds a lifestyle around good, healthy eating habits is the key to success.
