Acai Berry Diet and Excercise
It’s a daunting task trying to lose weight using diet and exercise. Many of us cannot afford expensive gym memberships on weight loss centers with huge price tags. The most difficult part id often knowing what to do to get started, and if rapid results are not quickly seen, especially for those of use needing to lose 35+ lbs, it becomes overwhelming. There are 3 easy steps you can take to easily begin to lose weight- developing an exercise plan, discover healthy eating, and properly supplement your body to have increased success with both of those areas.
There is so much information available to use about exercise, and often times its all stuff that you already know, but here’s something a little different. If you are not currently exercising and are fairly out of shape, then just start really small. This allows you to slowly build into a level of exercise that you can actually stick with. Take some time to determine where your level of ability really is and find a plan to work from there. If you are working on 10-20 lbs you are probably pretty safe starting out with a fast paced walk for 30 minutes every day. However if you are like 1 and 3 Americans you need to start back much smaller to get your body used to exercising again.
There are many different cheat sheets available on the internet for a 30 “Get your Body Ready for Exercise” plans, and there is no shame starting here. Those 15 jumping jacks the first day may feel too easy, or perhaps you could barely hop through them, either way you are prepping your body and muscles, getting them used to moving again. This small, easy daily change will have you exercising for real within a month, which is not a bad place to be at all.
Healthy eating is a confusing nightmare in out society- low carb, low calorie, low fat and each with critics on every side. The good news is that there is one form of healthy eating that is above reproach, relatively easy to do, and isn’t a diet but a way to actually eat to feel better and you will lose weight with it too. The “secret” is probably nothing new to you, just presented in a new way. Eating nutrient dense, calorie light foods will fill you up, nourish your body, and make you feel better throughout the day.
If you must have a hamburger, make it at home from higher quality meat than a fast food chain, if sweets are your downfall pack in extra vitamins and minerals with tasty treats like sweet carrot bread or dark chocolate not milk chocolate. Avoid prepackaged hi calorie fast foods. Most of the chains now offer delicious salad alternatives to the burgers and fries so that you are getting more fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, and other good foods for you body.
Supplementing your body is not taking a handful of multivitamins that often do little good and occasional harm. Using herbal supplements, such as acai berry, kelp, and many other plant based supplements, to actually help in the areas that you personally need will lead to increased health and success. Take time to listen to your body and find what you need- more energy, joint support, hunger, blood sugar regulation, etc- and then find the corresponding plant supplements increase your health and successful weight loss.
True Weight loss success is not a diet, but a healthy lifestyle change. Perfection is not the goal, but each meal and gym session is another opportunity to respect your body and find yourself one step closer to a healthier you. With the proper combination of healthy changes, using exercise as well as dieting to lose weight will become second nature in no time.
