Let’s talk about burning fat from your body

First of all, lets be clear about the basics

Okay–lets keep this simple.

1. Start by reducing calories by 300 per day in the first week.

With a goal of reducing calories by 300 at a time, you should be able to achieve this without major changes to your lifestyle.

2. Exercise is an important stimulus

Physical activity allows for the growth and renewal of cellular processes– we call this Recovery. During the Recovery period (often between 12-48 hours) your metabolism will be running more efficiently. Now you’re in a position to retain muscle while oxidizing fat cells. Awesome!

Recovery is even more important than exercise.

3. Reduce Stress

People who are stressed out have a harder time recovering.

Tips for stress reduction

  • Sleep at least 7 hours and the sooner after dark the more effective the sleep

  • Eat a plant-strong diet consisting of a variety of vegetables, stalks, roots, seeds, berries, and especially leafy greens! Lean proteins and essential fatty acid containing proteins are valuable too.

  • ...keep it natural...

  • Herbs and nutrient ideas: Ashwaganda, Maitake (and variety of medicinal mushrooms), Magnesium, Trace Minerals, Vitamin D, Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids, certain antioxidant blends, and Super Food powders… a personal favorite.

  • 60+ minutes light exercise per day (walking, doing chores, gardening, cleaning, organizing)

  • 20 minutes of Intense exercise 4x/weekly (HIIT training, hill repeats, bodyweight circuit training, etc)
