Belly Fat - Do you hate it as much as I do?

Diet is your first-line defense against belly fat.

In my opinion, the plants,  protein and good fats are the healthiest diets on earth.  There are all kinds of nutritious substitutes for all those little treats you feel you must have.  It is all about getting on a plan and sticking with it. 

I have just discovered the Whole30.  Founded by Melissa Hartwig (and Dallas Hartwig) in April 2009. It is one of the best lifestyle changes I have ever made, and believe me or ask my longstanding clients, how often I tell them about some new weight loss endeavor I discovered.  This, however, is the real deal.

I consider it a short-term nutrition reset, designed to help you put an end to unhealthy cravings and habits, restore a healthy metabolism, heal your digestive tract, and balance your immune system.  All the above is why I started my business of colon hydrotherapy in the first place.  My passion is to help anyone wanting to be helped with my knowledge and expertise.

I didn’t think I could stick with an eating plan years ago.  I thought I would starve.  It turns out that the plan I found is so much food I can’t believe I can eat like this and maintain my weight. I’m not talking about eating processed junk at all.  The foods I eat are clean and real.  That means not processed, but from nature. And, yes, you can cheat every now and then. But it’s no longer a treat if it is eaten everyday. I think we as Americans cheat way too often—one reason obesity is at an all time high.  If we can all just think about getting more muscle on our bodies, we’d be much better off. Muscles need food to grow, so if you like to eat this is a great thing! Instead of focusing on losing fat, our society would be a lot better off building muscle. I  love adding muscle to my body!

Dealing with belly fat is about 80% healthy diet; the rest is exercise.  You want something that will get your heart rate going fast, but not too fast. You want to burn fat not sugar. Think about weight training combined with cardio.  Weight training done about 3 times a week with cardio 30 to 60 minute sessions about 4 times a week will really show you a big difference in your body.  Endorphins will kick in soon and that is such a good feeling.  If you know absolutely nothing about lifting weights there are plenty of books in the library.  Or you can try buying, “The New Rules for Lifting for Women” or “101 Fat-Burning Workouts & Diet Strategies for Women.”  This is where I got my eating plan.  Both of these books are great because they assume you are starting from ground zero and will go slowly.  Especially the New Rules book.  I always loved weight lifting but this book is the best of the bunch.  There are phases that you follow.  It starts out really slowly.  It is only 3 days a week.  So it is totally doable for all women. (all ages) Talk about an awesome body!

Once you start to see the belly fat leaving your body you might be noticing that your skin is not as tight as it used to be.  This might just be a problem for middle-aged women, I’m not sure but I have found that Belly Fat wrap applicators from It Works really help with this. I have been using the wraps for a while now and I love them. 

I would never tell anyone that the wraps alone will make them lose belly fat.  That would just be a lie.  But they can be a healthy part of the process.  If you are as committed as I am to not having love handles and a fat belly, then make that decision to do something about it and stick with it.

Did you know that food also has a tremendous influence on how you think and feel?  It could be chronic depression, irritability, anxiety, fear, anger, obsessive thinking, or constant worrying.  The Standard American Diet (SAD) lacks the vital nutrients needed for proper brain function and mental health and will make your belly fat.

Think about it. You are so close to having a great body that you can be proud of, no matter what age you are. You will also free yourself from depression because of your great body and your mind will work effortlessly.
