Hello and welcome Vida Juicer! With all the holiday cheer and food around, it’s pretty easy to gain a few extra pounds. There are some things you can do in order to get back on the right track and keep those extra lbs in check. On this weeks “Wellness Wednesday” we’ll be discussing Tips For Effective Weight Loss. These are simple yet effective strategies, which completed daily over a period of time will give you great results.

1. Establish Realistic Goals
The first step is to determine the number of pounds you want to lose. Once you have that number, you can even break it down further into monthly and weekly goals. However, make sure they are achievable; on realistic time frames and that there is a plan of action for achieving them.

2. Drink Adequate Water
Many people often mistake thirst for hunger. As a result, you eat more than you require. Therefore, when you feel hungry go for a glass of water first. Additionally, there is no drink as pure and natural as water and you do need to drink sufficient amounts of it in order to keep your body running. It’s recommended you drink at least 2 liters (half a gallon) a day.

3. Eat Lighter Meals
Instead of eating 3 big meals a day, divide them into 5 or 6 light meals. Juicing counts as one meal. It will not only keep your appetite under control, but also improve your metabolism and energy. Lighter meals lead to lower calorie intake, which allows your body to burn fat faster and reduces the chance of more calories being stored as excess body fat.

4. Increase Your Protein Intake
Studies show proteins outweigh carbs and fats in extending the feeling of fullness and that they help the body burn an excess 200 to 250 calories a day. It is also known and documented that by eating foods high in protein and by minimizing our carbohydrate intake we can lose weight. You’re focus should by eating protein dense and whole foods.

5. Start Juicing
We already know that fruits and vegetables are rich in nutrients and fiber. However, the body takes a lot of time for them to digest when eaten. Juicing your fruits and veggies will allow your body to absorb these nutrient-rich foods much quicker, which will fuel your workouts and help speed metabolism.

6. Avoid Processed Foods
Eating processed foods will have little or no effect on your weight loss plan, as several important fibers, nutrients and vitamins are lost in processing and sometimes replaced with chemicals. Thus, it’s better to stick with whole and organic foods.

7. Exercise: My favorite
Exercise is crucial for your weight loss plans as nothing provides weight loss as effectively and as quickly other then diet as exercise. Diet will always be #1 for weight loss, but exercise is a close #2. When combined results are fantastic!

In conclusion follow the above mentioned tips and you’ll be on the right track for your weight loss goals. Please share the wellness and juice strong to live long!
