Do you ever look at the latest celeb who’s lost their post-partum fat and wonder just how they did it? Here are a few secrets and practical truths they used to get back in shape.
The first is: they’re skipping the super-sugary, mocha blended coffees and fast-food. Highly processed, over-sugary, full-of-sodium foods and drinks can add calories faster than you might think. They provide little to no nutrition, causing your body to send up a call for more food in the hopes that it can get the vitamins it needs to function. Instead, try what superstars do – bulk up on fresh fruits and veggies. Cut out as much sugar, caffeine, sodium, and alcohol as possible. Switch white and wheat breads and crackers over to whole-grain versions, and opt for lean proteins.
Eat several (five or six) small meals and snacks throughout the day and evening, instead of three or four big meals. This will keep your metabolism running. Combine healthy fats with healthy carbs so you don’t get hungry so soon after eating.
Add a good fat-burning, or metabolism boosting supplement to your diet. These, and other supplements like them, are great at giving your new changes a boost. They’ll help you drop those first few pounds fast, prompting your motivation and keeping you on track towards your goals.
Lastly, get your body moving! Combining a fun cardio routine with weights is a great way to tone up fast. The cardio will rev up your metabolism, and the weight regime will keep your metabolism running on high long after your workout is done.
By combining healthy, well-balanced meals with exercise and a great fat-burning supplement, you too can be in fit and looking fabulous.
