“5 Things Anyone Can do to Lose Fat and Get Fit Fast”

1. Energize Yourself

Ways you can do this include getting enough sleep, eating lots of fresh vegetables and fruit and exercising regularly.

2. Eat an all natural diet

I agree with this lots of good fresh fruit and vegetables, good quality protien, good oils, and whole grains; perferably in that order. Please also include some high quality wholefood supplements in your diet that are what we call nutrient dense (our soils do not contain enough minerals and we need to make sure we are getting high enough amounts of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes).

3. Do high intensity exercise a few times per week

High intensity exercise is a great way to burn fat and boost your heart, if you find this difficult try looking at a vibration platform to get you fit enough to workout at a high intensity (it can make it so much easier). Also it has now been scientifically proven that creating small bursts of intensity within a workout can be just as or more useful than a full high intensity workout. So in a ratio of a count of 8 to 12; go hard for 8 seconds and slower for 12 repeat until workout is finished.

4. Do strength training

Resistance training is vital to keep your bones strong and your muscles toned, and toned muscles accelerate your metabolism and burn unwanted fat; this can be done with weights your body weight or on a vibration platform.

5. Snack often

This is what I like to call grazing, graze at your food rather than try to eat it all in one sitting at a meal. Grazing is a natural way of eating and can actually help to raise your metabolism. One caution: if you are insulin resistant or leptin resistant this will be counterproductive until you have it under control. See my eBook “Sick, Tired & Overweight” for more information on this and the recommendations for these metabolic syndromes.

These are all great recommendations with certain proviso’s, not all of us are young enough or slim enough to tackle them straight away. I want you all to know that there are ways for everyone to get to the place in their journey where they can read a blog like this and know that they can use all of these recommendations easily.

Taking care to educate yourself on the proper lifestyle recommendations if you are older or have a metabolic syndrome (the modern epidemic) or are already overweight and find it difficult to exercise (use a vibration platform to speed up your weight loss and toning) you can be healthy and slim.

Be Fit! Be Well! Do it online…
