Like us, did Santa leave you with some unwanted kilos? Let’s blame the white-bearded one and get to this weighty issue. Less sledding, more shedding is in order!
Lee Holmes, Supercharged Food founder and clinical nutritionist says: “In my clinic work and in hearing from the Supercharged community, our body weight is one aspect of health that can be the hardest to manage at this time of the year. Many people gain a few pounds over the Christmas New Year period and, why not?! It’s OK. It’s good to give into temptation once in a while.”
But first things first. Can you be gentle on yourself and your family if there’s a little ‘more’ of you all? Letting go is a good thing. Delicious food is a good thing. Moments together are the stuff of life.
Our free ebook ‘Take Care of you and yours these holidays’ is full of useful information and ways to keep trim with all the trimmings.
Healthy eating patterns
The free ebook ‘Take Care of you and yours these holidays’ points out “the best way to lose weight is to steer clear of unhealthy eating patterns and focus on nourishing your body with real, fresh produce…eating and drinking too much and then punishing yourself with a detox diet in January is an unhealthy pattern.”
Love Your Gut
It’s the key to weight loss. It’s really the key to most health conditions. A loved gut is an efficient workaholic for your health. It processes and disperse the nutrition and hydration, and disposes of the bad stuff we consume.
A Supercharged suggestion is to increase your daily dose of Love Your Gut diatomaceous earth powder or capsules. The diatomaceous earth works in many ways - one is to help your gut shake off the undiscarded waste build-up. We can carry around 500g to 3 kilos in gut gunk. (By the way, it’s Australia’s no.1 natural gut health product!)
Get on the protein Pro Team
Another weight loss pro tip from the ebook is to try including a source of protein at every meal. It decreases hunger and that “hungry after eating sensation”. Meat is not the only protein source, of course. There’s plenty of plant based proteins that’ll do the job. Think avocados, black beans and, the underrated, pea.
Water: way more to weigh less
Water is a secret weapon in the weight wars. Drinking water can ‘load’ you up, leaving you sated and full.
Fizzy mineral water is a perfect drink when you’re drinking. It not only keeps you hydrated, it helps fill you up, thus, hopefully, fingers-crossed, avoiding the party pizza.
The ebook’s pages of infused water jugs are well-thumbed, digitally speaking. Plus, we just love adding them to our blog because they look so lovely.
Supercharge your walkaround water by adding some gut-loving Fulvic Humic Drops. A happy, healthy, loved gut will help discard the waste build-up in your digestive system and keep your gut metabolism off its little summer hiatus.
Take your time, taking care
When it comes to losing some weight for you and yours, time is of the essence. One day or crash diets don’t work. They’re usually counter-productive (counter-weight if you will, ha ha).
Much better to get back to those healthy eating patterns. Take your time re-introducing lovely, local in-season foods. Take time to exercise (if possible high intensity interval training is great but anything that gets your heart-rate up a bit will work off the weight). Mostly, take time to enjoy healthy eating for all.
When it comes to weight - time will tell.
