Love Your Body: 5 Ways To Permanent Fat LossJune 24, 2014
Have you tried endless treatments for permanent fat loss without seeing the expected results?
People often think that food is the only one to blame for our body’s inability to lose weight. But it is not all about food.
Remember this & share it with your friends:
Permanent fat loss is about living the ultimate healthy lifestyle!
Permanent fat loss starts with a healthy diet, to which you gradually add other beneficial factors. We put together a list of the 5 most important elements for permanent fat loss.
1. Less Stress
When was the last time you smiled for no reason? What are the unresolved conflicts in your life? What problems keep you awake at night?
Stress is an element that should be banned from our lives because it favours the appearance of many diseases, including the development of cancer. Stress-related problems include:
- Heart disease
- Depression and anxiety
- Accelerated ageing
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Alzheimer’s disease
Stress is determined by multiple factors, and can come in many forms: emotional, psychological, physical, environmental, spiritual or electromagnetic.
But why is stress connected to fat loss? A lot of people lose weight when under stressful conditions, but there are equally as many people who gain weight because of stress – and they can seldom get rid of it afterwards. Weight gain occurs because the body, feeling the stress, inhibits fat loss thinking that the fat deposits are necessary for its survival.
Eliminate the source of stress in your life and, if you cannot eliminate it, then ask for professional help. A psychologist can guide you on what you can do. If you are not keen on visiting a psychologist, then talk the matter over with a friend or family member that you trust. Identify the source of stress and then work towards conquering it.
2. Better sleep
How many hours of sleep do you get per night?
If you’re not sleeping at least 7-8 hours per night, then you cannot expect to see permanent fat loss. Sleep is directly connected to stress and directly connected to your body’s fat deposits. The lack of sleep interferes with the fat burning hormones, keeping them from… well, burning fat.
If your job is of such nature that you cannot sleep during night time, at least try to get some sleep during the day. There is a reason why daytime sleeping is called “The beauty sleep”.
Sleep: Your brain needs it, your body needs it, your beauty needs it.
3. More exercise
Now, don’t think about going to the gym or waking up an hour early to go jogging. Life gets busy and keeps us busy, so for a lot of us the gym is but a dream.
How can you get more exercise by NOT going to the gym? Here are a few ideas – if you adopt them you’ll soon see your body toning up:
- always take the stairs
- if working in an office, get up from your chair as often as possible (avoid using chairs with wheels, because they make you lazy)
- have daily walks of at least 20 minutes (increase to 40 minutes per day is possible)
- when you get up from bed in the morning – stretch
- speed-walk to work (did you know you can speed-walk 6km in less than 50 minutes? just try it!)
If you want to lose fat quickly and in large amounts, then don’t put your trust in the exercises above. Make time in your schedule for gym, swimming, sauna, and morning jogging – the serious stuff.
Tip: The best “route” to permanent fat loss is training with heavy weights and interval exercise programs, but make sure you make some time to relax (yoga, meditation or Tai Chi).
4. Real food
Are you eating healthy?
To find out, take a sheet of paper and jot down the things you ate today. On a different sheet of paper write down the foods you ate last week.
Are there pizzas, burgers, fast food, snacks, sodas? Yep, that’s bad for your body – but we’re sure you already know this.
So why not start eating a healthy diet now? You can enjoy the not-healthy-but-extremely-delicious foods, but NOT daily or weekly. Maybe once a month, and in small quantities – as rarely as possible…
Here is a short list of the foods you should AVOID eating when on a permanent fat loss diet:
- artificial sweeteners
- packaged foods
- microwave foods
- hydrogenated fats
- genetically modified soy
- highly processed grains
Focus on real, healthy food like meat, fruits, vegetables, fish. They are essential for your body’s health – not to mention about permanent fat loss! Additionally, healthy fats (like fish fat – rich in Omega 3) contribute to hormone production, having a healthy immune system, having healthy hair and skin, optimal brain function and fat loss.
5. Permanent fat loss treatments
We all know that with age, permanent fat loss becomes a goal that is more and more difficult to attain. Plus, there are areas of our body that won’t give up fat, regardless of how much we exercise. But that doesn’t mean you should give up; sometimes, all your body needs is a little “push”.
Fortunately, there are alternative non-invasive fat loss treatments. At our clinic you can benefit from three different types of treatments for permanent fat loss:
