Weight Loss- Are You Eating Right?



Our metabolism slows with age👶👧👩👵. The average woman packs on 18-plus kgs by her 50s🙊, if she doesn’t combat the roller coaster of hormones, muscle loss, & stress that conspires to slow her fat-burning engine. But midlife weight gain isn’t inevitable.😃
To boost over-40 weight loss, make sure your each meal is around 400 calories✅, the amount needed to fuel your body while keeping you satisfied, translating into effortless weight loss.💃
The Metabolism-boosting Food Rules🍴 to live by–
1⃣Eat just enough so you’re not hungry–a healthy snack🍎🍑🍌 midmorning and midafternoon between three meals will keep your metabolism humming.
2⃣Caffeine☕️ is a central nervous system stimulant, so your daily java jolts can rev your metabolism 5 to 8%.
3⃣Boost your fiber intake by switching to whole wheat bread🍞, pasta, & eating more fruits🍊 and vegetables🍆. Fiber can rev your fat burn by 30%.
4⃣Drink 6 cups of cold water a day to raise resting metabolism by about 50 calories daily–enough to shed 2.5kgs in a year.
5⃣Always choose organic👌 when buying fruits & vegetables; non-organic versions tend to have the highest levels of pesticides💥.
6⃣Make sure protein🍳🍠 is a component in every meal. Protein can up postmeal calorie burn by as much as 35%.
7⃣Iron-rich foods are essential for carrying the oxygen your muscles need to burn fat.
8⃣Vitamin D🌞 is essential for preserving metabolism-revving muscle tissue. Sources: tuna, shrimp, tofu, fortified milk and cereal, and eggs.
9⃣Skip the second cocktail🍸. When you have an alcoholic drink, you burn less fat, & more slowly than usual, because the alcohol is used as fuel instead.
1⃣0⃣Consuming calcium🍼 through dairy foods such as fat-free milk & low-fat yogurt may also reduce fat absorption from other foods.
Ignite your body’s fat-burning furnace with these healthy eating tips.✅👍👌

Is Walking Enough?


When I ask my patients or clients at Fitness Élixir do they exercise? I usually hear the answer,”We walk. That’s it.😊”
Activities like walking🚶, gardening🌷🌿, cleaning house🏡 are called as Exercise lite. Exercise lite has given many people a false sense that a stroll through the neighborhood is all you need to stay healthy. Instead of pushing people to be more active, it’s given them an excuse to do as little as possible.
🚶🚶🚶Does our kind of walking-
❌improve endurance?
❌reduce the risk of heart disease?
❌help in weight loss?
❌improve muscle strength?
NO⁉️ Then why do it❓
✅THE TRUTH? The more exercise you do, & the more vigorous it is, the more you benefit.👌
If walking is your choice of exercise, a brisk walk🏃🏃🏃🏃 is the way to walk. It’s how you’d walk if you were hurrying to catch a bus/train🚇 or to get in from the rain☔️. It’s walking fast enough so that you begin to feel winded.😅💦
If you’re a lounge lizard whose idea of exercise is picking up the remote control, then walking a little every day will make you healthier & increase your odds of living a long life. But don’t think you can shuffle along & call it exercise. Get walking the right way!👉🏃🏃
