4 week to shred that fat before X'mas parties
The festive season is inching closer, and we all love to fit into that clothing from pre-covid. Except, it’s more like 5-8kg away, and time to shred it in 4-6 weeks? Don’t worry; it ain’t no mission impossible just yet. Just follow these simplified approaches here; of course, motivation applies here.
1. Stabilize Blood Sugar: Time to eliminate simple carbohydrates as much as you can. It causes blood sugar to spike and inhibits fat burning. Choose healthful nuts if you must, but try to avoid frequent snacking in favor of balanced meals.
Hack: Get a continuous glucose monitor now. Nothing reminds you more than seeing the RED numbers.
2. Fiber & Good Fats: There are really 4 macronutrients. Introducing fiber. It helps with digestion and keeps you full. According to the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, it not only boosts your metabolism and regulates your weight, but it also serves as food for good gut bacteria. Happy bugs; happy us.
Hack: Don’t complicate things; just cover half of your plate with veggies.
3. Hydration: Quite often, people mistake thirst for hunger. Water improves metabolism and helps nutrient absorption, so drink up. Aim for 1.5 L for women and 2 L for men.
Hack: Wake up with a glass of warm water and ½ teaspoon of pink salt. (improve water into cells) + Get yourself a 1L bottle4. Time-Restricted Eating: According to a study published in Cell Metabolism, you can reduce weight and enhance the quality of your sleep by creating a meal plan that corresponds with your circadian rhythm.
Hack: 14|10 = 14 eating hours; 10 fast (beginner), 16|8 (experienced), 20|4 (only do if you have guidance)
5. Moderate Movement: Aim for 10,000 steps per day rather than strenuous workouts. It burns calories without running the risk of being overdone, hurt, or delaying your progress.
Hack: plan in 20 minutes of extra walking time at lunch + bring those comfort shoes into the office.
The main point here is to be metabolically healthy rather than just elevating workout load, as it tends to backfire quickly. That cheat meal after a heavy workout serves more like a kiss of death to this short-term “diet plan”. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need assistance dazzling in your 2019 holiday attire.
