Stupid Tip of the Day: I Can’t Lose Weight No Matter How Hard I Try.
Losing weight can be one of the toughest things, some individual’s will ever face. The number one thing in losing any amount of weight is, being healthy about it. Trying to unload a massive amount of pounds overnight can have dangers. Yet, when dieting, those intending to lose a large amount of weight, people tend to notice the first few pounds come off quickly and then, the weight loss comes to a screeching halt. The reason for this is the metabolism is in shock of the body’s recent events.
A lot of times you’ll hear someone state that they gain weight after a certain age, having a baby or they dieted and gained it back and then some. This is because the body’s natural chemistry has changed and changed the way the metabolism worked.
So, with that being said, I think it’s good to work out the metabolism first. With working out your metabolism first, it can shift gracefully, with the new changes your body is about to endure.
The most important thing for the metabolism is proper sleep. “Proper” doesn’t always mean 8 hours, but it does mean quality sleep. If you tend to sleep restless or wake up frequently, it affects everything, including your digestion’s system of gathering and expelling what is needed and not needed. It’s best to realize sooner rather than later, that all bodies are not built the same. It has been proven that women should try to get 1-2 hours more sleep than men; this is not always reality though, when it comes to maintaining the house and/or children something usually takes precedence. It’s my theory, that this is one reason why some women have a harder time losing pounds.
Getting the proper quality sleep sounds easier, than achieving to most people. But, it doesn’t have to be that difficult. Adding the amino acid Gaba into your daily nighttime ritual, can help with sleep, your metabolism and brain all at the same time. Taking Gaba with a natural sleep aid, Melatonin can give you natural sleep, without any grogginess or strange side effects.
Once the body’s sleep schedule is on track, the metabolism may need some extra help working properly. The way digestion works is simply complex; what makes it simple is, the body either uses the ingested, stores it for later or disposes of it. When the metabolism isn’t working properly it stores way too much and that becomes fat. Taking to your doctor about adding a 400 mg. folic acid supplement into your morning routine can really boost the metabolism, without sending it into some kind of dangerous overdrive.
When restarting the metabolism again, eating smaller portions more frequently is beneficial. Small portions are only hard in the beginning, but once you know you can eat every 2-3 hours, starvation isn’t an issue anymore.
Here are just a couple things to do, without changing any diet or activity in your life. These natural treatments can make a huge impact on those trying to lose a few pounds to simply maintaining a healthy weight. I always suggest, keep your doctor in the loop of any herbs, diet or exercise you plan on participating with.
Facing weight issues can impact individual’s on many levels, finding a positive outlet to absorb your progress, is important in the process. Some individual’s involved in weight loss are trying to reach unrealistic goals; while being at a healthy weight or slightly over, they see a different picture. Not everyone is built the same. John’s story is interesting because he never saw his weight or would let it slow him down, in his mind. John has made a web diary https://ourpersonaljourney.wordpress.com/of his struggles and process. This helps him see his downfalls and accomplishments and he’s out there sharing it with others. Sharing with others is not for everyone. But, doing something like taking a weekly photo or a diary on the positives of your progress; that makes you face the facts and truths, allowing one to not lie to themselves; think about it, mirrors can lie.
