TOP 7 DETOX TIPS TO BANISH THE BLOAT

1. Get Fruity

So many folks think that detox juices have to be all veggies, and that fruit is banned.

This is not the case.

The natural sugars in fruit are completely different to the sugars you get in candy bars and cakes and will help lift your mood and energy levels.

Include 1 fruit serving per 2 vegetable servings.

2. The Darker the Better 

On the topic of fruit, the darker it is, the better it is for you.

This is due to the fact that dark-skinned fruits have better protection from the sun, and so keep their nutritional values more effectively. Think blackberries, blueberries, and elderberries.

Thick-skinned fruits such as mangos, limes, and pineapples work on the same principle too.

3. Look at the Liquid

You can use water in your detox smoothies, but why would you, when varying the liquid component adds flavor, texture and extra nutrition?

Almond milk is a real winner, as is coconut water, coconut milk, and even the juice from fresh fruits such as lemons and limes.

4. Go Green

As much as possible, aim to include something green in your drink.

When combined with other ingredients you won’t taste these at all. So get some spinach, kale, broccoli, or even lettuce and aloe vera leaves in there.

5. Make it Nice with Spice

One incredibly simple tip to make your smoothies so much tastier (yet few people know about) is to add a dash of spice to each one.

If you’ve not tried ginger, cinnamon, or even a dash of natural sea salt with your concoctions, you’re seriously missing out. A little of these goes a long way.

6. Neat n’ Sweet

A big problem many people face when making their own detox drinks at home is working out how to make them sweet without adding a ton of syrup, sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Well, that problem can be solved by raiding nature’s store cupboard.

Raw honey and agave nectar are godsends and don’t forget that many sweeter fruits, like bananas, apples, papaya and apples pack more than enough sweet punch on their own.

7. Factor in Fat

Fat?

In a weight loss smoothie?

Absolutely!

Your body needs healthy dietary fats to function optimally, produce hormones, and burn body fat as fast as physically possible.

Some easy ways to get in a small serving of this essential nutrient is by adding in a small handful of almonds, walnuts or pistachios to each drink, or blending in half a tablespoon of macadamia nut oil or coconut oil.

There you have it…

7 ways to not only make your detox even more effective in terms of weight loss, fat burning, metabolic rate and energy levels, but also in taste.

Because what good is following a diet, if you don’t enjoy it!?
Why detox, though?

It’s that typical scenario …

You feel fat.

Your abs are bloated.

You’re sluggish, tired, and downright miserable with your physique.

You know you need to “diet” – but it’s just such a horrendous thought.

Weeks and months of grilled chicken breast, broccoli, garden salads and egg white omelets are not appealing in any way whatsoever.

Plus, from past experiences, you know that actually, it can take a while to see the benefits from such an eating plan. So not only are you depressed and bored with what you’re eating, but you’re not even reaping the rewards.

There must be a quicker way, right?

So try it – you might just be surprised

Confused over protein? You are not alone. The number of people who either don’t understand how much protein to take in each day or don’t know when the most optimal times to eat it is overwhelming.

In fact, many people don’t even realize that their diet is so low in protein, it’s the most significant factor preventing their success.

Protein is essential for everyone. Man, woman, young, old, training or not, you need protein. Women especially often don’t get enough because they think that eating more protein and particularly taking a protein supplement means they’ll get big and bulky quickly.

I want to assure you that’s not the case. Women simply don’t possess the hormones necessary to pack on lots of muscle mass, especially overnight. It would take years and years of hard work to gain appreciable muscle, and often a number of other supplements.

Back to the protein issue, you must take in protein with each and every meal during the day.  Ideally, you should be at around 1 gram per pound of body weight each day, based on your lean body mass (LBM) to fat ratio. Remember the more lean muscle you have, the higher in proportion to your body weight your protein intake will be. Want to learn more about how much protein you should be consuming?

This protein will help with muscle regeneration and synthesis as well as help you put in the maximum performance in each workout you do.

All of this said, there are three critical times that you really need to focus on getting more.  Let me show you these three times, so you can ensure you aren’t missing out.

Keep reading after the video to learn why you should consume protein…

  • During breakfast
  • In your Post-workout snack/meal
  • Before bed

Why You Should Consume Protein At Breakfast

Take a look at your usual morning meal.  Does it go a little something like this?

½ cup oatmeal with some cinnamon on top along with some fresh fruit and a couple slices of toast?

If so, this is a huge diet disaster.  There’s virtually no protein or healthy fat in this meal, so you’ll be in for a quick energy boost followed by an even quicker and more significant energy crash.

If you always feel horrible mid-morning, your breakfast is why.  Try changing it up.  The oatmeal and fruit are ok at best, but add some protein and healthy fats in there.

A few eggs or slices of lean turkey bacon along with some avocado or a small handful of nuts will do the trick.  Eat this and watch your energy level soar – all the way until lunch. Aim for 30 grams minimum at breakfast.

Post Workout for More Protein

You’ve likely heard of the ‘post workout window’ before. This basically means there’s a short time post workout when your body is prepared to take up any nutrients you feed it rapidly.  This means faster recovery and faster results – if you feed yourself properly (1, 2).

Aim for some protein along with carbohydrates within 30-60 minutes post workout. Keep fat out of the picture during this time as it’ll just slow down digestion, which is opposite of what you want here.

⚠️ Are you ready to enhance your performance, lose more fat, and build more muscle?

Eat Protein Before Bed

Finally, you need to prepare your body for the overnight fast. This means eating enough quality protein that your body feeds off those amino acids all night long. Plus, consuming protein before bed will help you recover while you are sleeping (3).

The easiest and most convenient way to make sure you are consuming enough protein at the right times is through a quality protein powder. Instead, I’d go for a quality whey isolate or even better, just like our Morellifit Nutrition Protein. This way you can feel good about what you’re putting into your body.

Mix that protein with some whole fat plain yogurt and a few berries and you’ll have the perfect pre-bed meal on your hands.

Remember, these are just the three most important times to eat protein, not the only times.  Eat protein with each meal and snack you consume and you’ll be feeling and looking better in no time.

Bonus: Pre-Workout Protein Consumption

I wanted to make this “The Four Most Critical Times to Consume Protein” but Three sounded a little catchier!

So here’s your bonus 4th time – Pre-Workout

You simply can’t function and perform at your best in a training session without protein in your system. Consuming protein will help you enhance your peak performance and endurance, recover from your workout faster, and it supports muscle development. It will help you burn calories throughout your workout and get you to your goals faster, whether you are trying to put on lean muscle or lose the extra fat (4, 56, 7).

Remember, no protein means no fuel for your muscles. And that means fewer calories burned (8).

This is one of my top tips, no matter what time of exercise you are going and my top tip to any of my clients.

All you have to do is consume one serving of protein every hour before every workout. Every single client I suggest it to reports back how amazing it makes them feel during and after their workouts are done.  

They tell me that they found that they had more energy, recovered better and were able to push harder in the session.

When searching for a protein, you want to make sure you go after the best. This means a clean, grass-fed whey that contains absolutely no artificial ingredients. The last thing you want to do is to sabotage your results because you are consuming a subpar protein. We want to make sure that we are only putting the very best into our body and so made our own grass-fed whey isolate, a pure protein that is sourced from New Zealand because of their strict standards. Morellifit Nutrition Protein is not only one of the cleanest proteins you will find on the market, it is also one of the tastiest!

New year’s eve is one of the best nights of the year. I think you deserve to celebrate a year of hard work.

So, if you’ve been working out and burning fat all year, then you should reward yourself.

However, you can have fun without putting on the pounds.

There are generally lots of fattening foods at these events, but there are also lots of healthy opinions. Here are the snacks and drinks that I will be eating. I encourage you to do the same.

In this post, you’ll see:

  • My go-to drinks for weight loss this New Years
  • Top party snacks for weight loss

Top Fat Loss Drinks:

flavorLime_img-238x300

1. LaCroix Natural Sparkling Water (Flavored) & KettleOne Vodka

This will make for a tasty drink and you can enjoy yourself at the party. There are no calories from carbohydrates, so you will stay in a state of ketosis.

With that said, try to limit your intake as those calories still need to be burned off. However, it won’t halt your weight loss progress like most other drinks.

2. Glass of Red Wine

There is research showing that one glass of red wine (four to six nights per week) can help you to live longer. It can increase your good cholesterol (HDL). There are also certain antioxidants in red wine.

Good bacteria is found in red wine which helps with your digestive tract, and can make you leaner (according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition).

3. Glass Of Champagne w/ Berries

There are only 87 calories in one glass of champagne. You will only gain 2.8 grams of carbohydrates, which your body can easily cope with. The berries add a nice secondary twist to the flavor.

4. Lite Beer (Amstel lite)

Containing just 95 calories, this is a great option to choose. There are only 5 grams of carbohydrates in one bottle. This is a great option for men and women who want to be social without ingesting too many calories.

5. Flavored Vodka (KettleOne Orange) and club soda or tonic.

Flavored vodka has a low-calorie content in comparison to other alcoholic drinks.  The minimum alcohol content for flavored vodka is 60 proof (30% alcohol by volume).

This means there are 30% fewer calories, as there is less alcohol. The rest is made up of water content.

Top Weight Loss Snacks:

1. Nuts

You can’t go wrong with nuts, and you can keep snacking on them during the evening.

But, you can eat just any type of nuts. Choose from the almonds, macadamias, cashews, and walnuts. Don’t sweat it though, if there is a mix of nuts go ahead and grab a handful or two.

2. Guacamole

Your best bet is to find some veggies as opposed to traditional chips. If you have access to some gluten-free chips you could go for those.

3. Deviled Eggs

These are a great choice, as you get your fat and protein needs to be met. If you’re entertaining, then just cut hardboiled eggs in half. Sprinkle some chili pepper and some olive oil to add extra flavor.

4. Dark Chocolate Cacao

Dark chocolate is a good snack to choose at a party. It is loaded with nutrients, which have a positive effect on your health. But, don’t confuse it with the chocolate loaded with sugar.

Cacao contains antioxidants, Theobromine, Phenylethylamine, essential minerals, and vitamins. Also, dark chocolate contains 15% fewer calories than other chocolate. It will also prevent the cravings for other salty and sweet foods.

5. Lean meats

You can fill up on meats, as long as they are lean cuts.

You will get the best sources of protein and good fats from the lean meats. You will find some type of meat at most events and parties, so this is a great choice.

Summary

Remember to have a great time this New Year’s Eve. You can be social and enjoy the foods you eat by just being selective.

Use the tips above to prevent weight gain, and start 2014 in the best possible way.

Whether you’ve been on a Custom Meal Plan or an effective training routine, you’ve to work hard all year and you deserve to have a little bit of fun.

Calories are obviously important in controlling your weight.

However, calories are not the only thing that you need to pay attention to. Good weight loss foods are not only low in calories. They are those foods that charge up your metabolism and help with hunger cravings.

As such, you will stay full for longer and not be tempted to eat processed foods.

Here are 7 of the best foods to choose when you are trying to lose weight.

  • Nuts

Health-benifits-of-almonds1-300x296There are a number of weight loss reasons for eating nuts.

Firstly, studies have shown that eating more nuts between meals means people will not eat as much later in the day. However, you need to eat the right types of nuts.

Stay away from peanuts.

Aim for walnuts, almonds, and pecans. You should also eat sunflower seeds, macadamias, a moderate amount of cashews, and pistachios. These types of nuts contain lots of antioxidants and vitamins. Perfect for weight loss and health.

  • Soups

Soups should be used as a starter before your main meal. They will help to curb your appetite and fill you up. They are also very low in calories, providing you eat the right types of soup.

Eat vegetable soups, but avoid cream-type soups, as they contain a high level of calories and are usually processed.

  • Beans

Beans can be used to add to a number of different meals, as they can be combined well. They are low in calories and have a high protein content. This is perfect for weight loss goals.

Beans are also high in fiber, so they are digested more slowly and will give you the feeling of being full.

  • Eggs

Eggs are one of my favorites and I have talked about them many times on this blog. I always recommend them as they are the perfect food source for weight loss (and building muscle).

High protein foods help you stay full for longer, and will prevent snacking. Eggs can be made into many meal choices. You need to be eating eggs.

  • Almond Butter

Almond Butter is one of my favorites. I love to eat it with celery (for the fiber, vitamin K, and protein). It will help you to feel full and energized during the day. You can also spread it on apples, for a fun snack.

  • ruby-grapefruit-300x221

    Grapefruit

Grapefruit has been shown to increase the metabolism in people who eat it. It can be eaten whole or juiced and is assimilated very easily by the body.

It doesn’t have magical powers as some people claimed in the 1980’s (the infamous grapefruit diet), but it will fill you up and add plenty of soluble fiber.

  • Fish

Fish is a great food to eat for weight loss. It is tasty, can be cooked in many different ways and can be served with many side dishes. Fish can be eaten many times during the week and made to taste completely different each time.

It is very high in omega 3, which will increase the flow of blood to the muscles (great for maximizing your time in the gym). Omega 3 will also help your body’s enzymes to function in an optimal manner.

Summary

Adding good weight loss foods to your current diet, or by getting a Custom Meal Plan, will help you to lose fat and add variety to your current meals. Keeping your meals delicious and interesting is all part of the weight loss journey.

If you don’t look forward to the food you eat, then you are less likely to stay on course. Use the ideas above to add variety and keep losing weight each day.
