For some,losing weight seems effortless, but for most it requires a little help. When it comes to shedding those unwanted calories, it’s important to do it the right way to insure that you lose and maintain your goal weight. A few vital criteria must be met in order to achieve your goals.Herbalife products are designed to help you meet these goals, no matter what your body shape, age or gender.
Get enough protein
Losing weight is about more than exercise or choosing a salad over a hamburger.Limiting your calories is significant, but more importantly, your body has to be fed all the nutrients it needs in order to slim down healthily. Having enough protein in your diet is also extremely important. Protein-rich food takes longer to leave the stomach and it’s harder to digest than fat or carbohydrates. This makes you feel fuller, causes you to snack less and,ultimately, burns more calories. It is also responsible for keeping the blood-sugar steady; preventing the hunger that occurs after a sudden drop in blood sugar. If your diet contains little or no protein, you may lose muscle mass instead of fat. It maintains the body’s musclesand, since lean muscle requires calories for maintenance, consuming sufficient amounts ofprotein aids in preserving muscle and metabolic rates. This is why it is a key ingredient in all Herbalife’sweight loss products, most prominent being Formula 3 – Personalised Protein Powder.
Importance of fibre
Aside from providing this valuable protein, Formula 1 Herbalife Nutritional Shake Mixalso offers you high quality fibre. Fibre is the part of plant-based foods that the human body is incapable of digesting. It passes through the digestive tracts without contributing calories or nutrients, yet it is still good for the body. It keeps bowel movements regular, helps move cholesterol out of the body and, like protein, keeps us feeling full,for longer. It also helps move fat through our system faster so that less of it is digested.
While it’s necessary to keep calorie intake low, in relation to your BMI, body type etc.,counting them is a monotonous chore when it comes to weight loss. Our Nutritional Shake mix solves this problem for you as it’s low in total energy (217 kcal with 250 ml low fat milk). Replace two meals with this, and one main meal of your choice.
Whilst you can derive protein from a piece of fatty red meat, fibre from white rice, and vitamins from most fast food, these are bad sources of nutrition. Calories from processed food are known as “empty calories” because they provide very little nutrition to the body. This ensures that you’ll feel hungry soon after you eat. Eating nutritional foods and taking supplements, prevents you from overeating.Formula 1 Herbalife Nutritional Shake Mixprovides good protein in the form of soy, as well as fibre and vitamins.
This is a key factor in many diet failures. Stress hormones stimulate cells in the abdomen to expand and encourage more fat storage. This also encourages appetite and affects your metabolism. Too much strain can slow down the digestive process and cause weight gain, as well as tempt you toward comfort foods. You can combat stress in many ways. Make sure you’re taking enough vitamins or vitamin supplements. Set mealtime patterns and never skip breakfast. Practice relaxation techniques daily. Increase physical activity. Sleep 7-8 hours a night. Know your comfort foods and keep them out of the house. Beating stress is one of the hardest things to do but it’s an important element in any diet plan and an integral part of your general wellbeing.
Formula 2 – HerbalifeMutivitaminComplex helps combat stress and provides much needed nutrients. However, some play other significant roles in weight loss. Vitamins such as B2, B3, B5 and B6 keep your metabolism running and ensure a healthy thyroid. Vitamin E also helps with your metabolism, boosts your immune system, is a powerful antioxidant and helps with skin elasticity (which is helpful as you lose those centimeters). Vitamin C works well with E in the antioxidant process. It helps absorb beneficial nutrients such as calcium, iron and folacin and cannot be stored in the body. Bottom line is, how little you eat isn’t as important as what you eat. Vitamins are essential to boosting your body’s fat burning process, managing blood sugar levels and keeping a healthy immune system.
Formula 2 – Herbalife Multivitamin Complex also provides you with those much needed minerals essential for weight loss. One of the most imperative types is chromium which regulates cravings and the blood sugar level. Also crucial, is calcium, which studies show, decreases the risk of obesity by 70%. Zinc falls into the category of one of the best minerals for weight loss too, as it regulates appetiteand is necessary for the running of hormones such as insulin. Last but not least is manganese which regulates fat metabolism and blood glucose, and maintains the health of the thyroid. All these vitamins and minerals, are provided to in the multivitamin complex, making it very effective in fastweight loss.
Don’t skip meals
Skipping meals is a very unhealthy and ineffective way of attempting to lose weight, as this causes your body’s starvation defense to kick in, storing more fat within your body slowing your metabolism to a crawl. It’s also typical to overcompensate by eating morelater. Fasting is also bad for you as it forces the body to use protein as an energy source; stripping down muscle and organs. Excess protein is turned into fat. In fact, having small, healthy snacks between meals is beneficial to getting into shape as it reduces appetite and speeds up the metabolism.
Drinking water serves to increase your strength, help with weight loss and prolong the amount of time you are able to perform cardiovascular activity. Drinking water before meals also helps you feel fuller and contains no calories. Drinking water is also important in the fat burning process, as the body needs water for the process of burning calories.
