Tips and tricks for losing weight and reducing cellulite

Tips and tricks for losing weight and reducing cellulite
S

ummer is here. You don’t feel 100 percent comfortable with your body?

You’re not alone. Especially in summer, a lot of women don't feel too comfortable because of cellulite. Cellulite is an enlargement of the fat cells, which are underneath the skin and fascia. The fascia is controlled by growth hormone, which is the anti-aging hormone. Here are some tips and tricks for losing weight and reducing cellulite: 

1. Lower your insulin level

For losing weight and reducing cellulite it's important to keep your insulin level low. That can be achieved with intermitted fasting and eliminating sugars from your diet. That means that you eat only two times a day and your meals should include protein, vegetables and fat. You should avoid snacking, but you don’t have to reduce your caloric intake.

2. Balance your exercise and recovery

For losing weight and your general health, it's important to exercise and move your whole body. Especially high intensity training (HIT) and high intensity interval training (HIIT), where you train shortly and intensely. But it’s very important not to over-train and to recover after the training session. You should take some days off for a good recovery. When your body is exhausted all the time, it cannot burn fat. To train and recover effectively, do a short intense workout once a week.

3. Sleep like a baby

Deep sleep helps burn fat. But you need at least 8 hours of sleep for losing weight. Energy use is particularly high during REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. During this time, your brain is highly active and you burn the most glucose, typically your body's source of fuel. Your heart rate and blood pressure also rise during this time, which burns more calories.

Stretching before going to bed and taking some vitamins helps enhance your sleep.

4. Reduce stress

Stress blocks fat burning. If you're stressed, your body releases cortisol which stops the fat burning process. Further, cortisol affects your sleep. Vitamin D and walking helps lower the cortisol level, so that the fat burning process can take place. Further, meditative exercises like yoga or meditation or even a massage can help you find your peace of mind and release tension.

5. Add certain nutrients

There are different nutrients, which help the fat burning process. Sea kelp for example activates the thyroid, which speeds up your metabolism. Potassium citrate lowers the need of insulin and enhance your sleep.Nutritional yeast, which contains vitamin B, can help you with stress.

All these steps help lose weight, reduce the fat cells and strengthen the fascia. The process for losing your cellulite can last over three years. And if you start now, you’re going to achieve your goal sooner. If you struggle to find the right workout, try train like an astronaut.

Strength training and yoga - the significant workout effects on the yoga mat
As the saying goes, opposites attract. This is also true for my fitness routine, specifically for my yoga practice and weekly strength training. Even though yoga and strength training don't have much in common at first glance, from my experience they complement each other extremely well. If you ever found yourself on a yoga mat trying to feel and look good doing asanas, then you will recognize yourself in my story. Maybe you will even get inspired to pair your yoga routine with strength training!

Chicken egg tapping or chocolate egg hunting? 10 reasons to eat more eggs for your health
Eggs - a pure vitamin and mineral bomb that should not be missed not just at Easter, but also at the daily breakfast table. Eggs are real powerhouses with many valuable nutrients. They are rich in vitamins A, B2, B12, D and folic acid, as well as phosphorus, selenium, iron, zinc and choline. Almost all the proteins and amino acids contained in eggs can be converted and absorbed. And now comes the surprise: egg yolk contains more proteins than the protein itself! Yup, egg yolk consists of about 50% water, 32% fat and 15% proteins. Liquid egg white, on the other hand, is about 90% water and only 10% protein. #sorrynotsorry but so much for the trends of eating only egg white omelette with leeks and spinach on the weekend. Oh yeah, and one thing right up front: the information in this blog post refers exclusively to the chicken eggs and NOT the chocolate eggs.

Why diets don't work and a personal nutrition strategy does. An interview with nutrition expert Nilan from betteryou
Who really wants to try a "Brigitte sauerkraut diet" that relies on 1200 kcal a day to lose 2 kilos? Hopefully no one. Because diets cause stress, even unhappiness, are difficult to adhere to and do not bring long-term success. Meanwhile a nutrition strategy does, especially if it is developed personally for you on the basis of your body analysis. We observe that 90% of clients make outstanding progress with smart nutritional adjustments combined with the 6-Minute Workout and they are able to stick to their self-imposed regime. Why do diets fail and, in contrast, nutritional strategies based on individual body analysis lead to long-term success?
